“It is incomprehensible to me
how any Jew could ever return
to the killing grounds.
You chose to go to Hell
and then you complain
that the landscape is littered with devils.”

– Cynthia Ozick, writer, USA


You can’t dance on graves.
There are no graves,
no gravestones for flowers
or stones. No graves to kneel
in front of or stand next to.

That cemetery is boundless.
The dead are all interred on high.

No, there’s no dancing on graves.
There’s only dancing under graves.
And there’s no lack of dancers.
There are dancers galore!

– Herbert Kuhner
