Author's note-in remembrance of a brother and sister.

A darkness descended o'er the land,
as it once had happened in Egypt of old.
Caused not as before by the mad flight of locusts,
but by a new "Pharoah" who sought to redefine “truth”
by murdering G-d.

Was there no one who did not know ...
wherein books are burned so too will humans be?

Hans and Sophie Scholl did.
They planted a seed for a renewal of hope-that from the ashes of:

auschwitz
dachau,
buchenwald,
bergen-belsen
treblinka

a “white rose” might still be grown.

You see it was not that there were no more good gardeners,
only that ... there were so few.
