Chloe, age,7, and her Grandfather

 
Chloe Heidinger: In Honour of her Grandfather George for Holocaust Awareness Week

By Chloe Heidinger, April 25, 2016

A Survivor's Granddaughter

 

When I look at the smile on my grandfather's face

I wonder why someone would want to wipe out his whole race

He was forced to wear a bright yellow Jewish star

That many people could identify from afar

And as Hitler rose to fame

The Jews started getting all the blame

He had to hide for his life

And suffer through so much strife

Just because he had a different religion

He lost his whole family and was grief ridden

I always start to shed a tear

When I think of how much fear

He must have had as a child knowing that at any second

That the Natzis could come and check in

My grandfather did not adjure

While Hitler was trying to make the world pure

So when we say we shall never forget

I don't think we will ever truly get

Just how abhorrent the Holocaust was
