Many to blame for the Holocaust, and children on both sides the victims of adult decisions.
Kerry, so often the kids are the innocent victims.CiaoPea

It's a chilling place Brian.
we are all entwined as far back and as far forward as we can go...we forgive but we do not forget....and hopefully, we learn
I absolutely agree with you, BlessingsPea
I had to look up "Tanka" ["the tanka employs a turn, known as a pivotal image, which marks the transition from the examination of an image to the examination of the personal response." ] WELL DONE!ZQ
ZQ, it's new to me as well, so just learning. Did you find out about the formation, it should be 31 syllables, 5/7/5/7/7.Thanks for the kind comments.
yes thank you. It was compared to a Sonnet :-)
Oh was it? I need to do more research! Thanks.
We must never forget. Nice one.
Thanks AnthonyKind of you to say. CiaoPea
I love "understand - lest we forget". Powerful write on such an important topic.
Thanks SherryIt's kind of you to say. CiaoPea
I hope he really got it!
Oh who knows, but it was a moment that came out of the blue and he was behaving unlike many of his fellow teenagers.
Well I have to second ZQ--well done!
I like the contrast between the rowdy teenagers and the youth that shows respect. That is a nice turn there. Well done on the tanka form.
Thanks Loredana. Still an absolute beginner with all these poetry matters. CiaoPea

Do I call you Stacy or Stacy Lynn?Thanks for your kind comments. CiaoPea
Powerful stuff - you have captured a lot here in a few lines and a moment of insight - as captured by your picture - very good... With Best Wishes Scott www.scotthastie.com
Thanks very much Scott
Powerful in its brevity. And to think there are those who truly want to believe it never really happened, or want others to do so. The most pertinent and important lesson in the history of the human race. No, it must never be forgotten,Elizabeth
ElizabethI don't understand the people who deny it, how can they deny the irrefutable facts? CiaoPea
It's quite an experience to visit anything that reminds us of such awful history. Thank you for your poem.
MyrnaIt was my pleasure, sort of! CiaoPea
