We Are The Shoes

We are the shoes, we are the last witnesses.
We are shoes from grandchildren and grandfathers
from Prague, Paris, and Amsterdam,
and because we are only made of fabric and leather
and not of blood and flesh, each one of us avoided the hellfire.
— Yiddish poet Moses Schulstein


Holocaust Memorial, Washington, D.C.
