January 27th is International Day in Memory of the Holocaust Victims.
Hana Volavková (1904-1985) was the only curator of the Central Jewish Museum to survive World War II. She collected and edited poems, letters, and drawings in a book called I Never Saw Another Butterfly, which were written by the children of Terezin Concentration Camp.
This poem from the book was written by an unnamed child who was a prisoner at Terezín. A total of 15,000 children under the age of 15 lived in the camp. Only 100 came back. This child was not one of the hundred.
