Elicited by a visit with my son Jonathan (with sincere apologies) to KZ Buchenwald concentration camp memorial near Weimar, Germany, 1995

lyrics

Started on a summer’s day
Beechwood Forest came to be
Branded in our collective psyche
A madman’s legacy

No respecter of persons
Old men and women
Young boys and girls
In a struggle for survival
On starvation rations

Waxing axiomatic
“Labour makes freedom”
“To each his due”
As the yellow star diaspora
Was doomed to perish

In a reign of terrors
In a house of horrors
At Beechwood Forest
Life was cheap.

Fools wring their anguished hands:
“How could this ever happen?”
Goons flail their heiling arms:
“Why did it take so long?”

Heard spewing on the radio:
Beechwood and its ilk were a hoax
Elaborate conspiracy
Concocted by world Jewry

But that unnatural selection
Of staggering tattooed skeletons
Weren’t no figment of imagination.
