Yom HaShoah is Sunday night until Monday night.

I remember going through a cemetery not long ago in arizona (I love going through cemeteries) and there was a tombstone of a man who died in 2010. On the back of his tombstone are the names of 9 family members he lost in the Holocaust. Five siblings, mother, father, 2 grandparents. It is said that 1 in 3 european jews survived. He was 1 in 10 who survived.

The Butterfly
June 4, 1942 
Pavel Friedmann
 
The last, very the last.
So richly, brightly, dazzlingly yellow.
Perhaps if the sun's tears would sing
against a white stone. . . 
 
Such, such a yellow
Is carried lightly 'way up high.
It went away I'm sure because it wished to
kiss the world good-bye.
 
For seven weeks I've lived in here,
Penned up inside this ghetto.
But I have found what I love here.
The dandelions call to me
And the white chestnut branches in the court.
Only I never saw another butterfly.
 
That butterfly was the last one.
Butterflies don't live in here,
in the ghetto.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Pavel Friedmann was a Czech man who died in Auschwitz in 1944.
