Thanks Dick. The fact is that I don't question the way the Holocaust was at all, or the numbers that died. I was attempting to make the point that I think anything that important should be discussed. I don't know why Shelagh deleted the thread, but as far as I'm concerned there was no need to.
Maire, I think this poem captures the way a family would feel about their daughter, mother, and wife, and especially the way the woman would feel about her family. I have heard more than one person say they don't understand or that they would gladly changed places with whomever it was. I wondered if perhaps God in his wisdom had ever allowed it to happen. Thanks for seeing it as I intended it to be seen
