"I once was a little child who longed for other worlds, but I am no more a child for I have known fear. I have learned to hate. How tragic, then, is youth which lives with enemies, with gallows ropes. Yet, I still believe I only sleep today. That I’ll wake up, a child again, and start to laugh and play."
- Excerpt from a note written by Hama Herchenberg, a 14yr old Jewish prisoner of Auschwitz, who died December 18, 1943 in the concentration camp.
