"Work Shall Set You Free"

  1. And Scott Rothstein sentencing. Coincidence?

  2. "Work shall set your free" is exactly what Hillary Bass told a group of us young associates in the conference room at Greenberg many years ago.

  3. Some one mentioned the 'Holocaust' the old Jewish man said 'no'
    Such word I do not wish to hear that happened years ago
    Then he slowly folded up his sleeve and numbers etched in blue
    Told of the sufferings he'd known and all he had been through.

    A silence fell o'er one and all across the club room floor
    And in his presence 'Holocaust' not mentioned any more
    We had amongst us in the flesh one who had lived through hell
    But I wish that he could have spoke of sufferings he could tell.

    Don't mention 'Holocaust' to me with one wave of his hand
    A silence fell o'er one and all how could we understand?
    The agony he had been through, the torture and the pain
    We did not mention 'Holocaust' no not to him again.

    My heart went to that Jewish man who sought no sympathy
    He wanted to block out his past as a bad memory
    Don't mention 'Holocaust' to me and little else he said
    But i could picture living soul whose thoughts were with the dead.

    That night I did not sleep too well I had recurring dream
    I watched the hungry slowly die, I heard the tortured scream
    I saw a gray haired jewish man the sorrow on his face
    And i was in another time a dark and a sadder place.

    I woke and when i went to sleep the dream returned to me
    Of Jewish man with tragic past who sought no sympathy
    I see a young man in his prime with a hunger wasted frame
    With numbers branded on his hand

  4. Thank you for the reminder. It still amazes me that some people try to claim it never happened.

    There was a really profound ceremony held at Auschwitz to mark the day, reported here:
