9993 - Prayers at the concentration camp

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Evi Charitidou

If you knew how many prayers
were heard at the concentration camp
at the same time
when barbarity
was ripping off human bodies,
you would read
all the descriptions on tortures
in a different way
for, you wouldn’t only feel
your pain inside you
but also that of all victims
accompanying you
when you are alone.
