    Never shall I forget that night,
    The first night in camp
    Which has turned my life into one long night,
    Seven times cursed and seven times sealed.

    Never shall I forget that smoke.
    Never shall I forget the little faces of the children
    Whose bodies I saw turned into wreaths of smoke
    Beneath a silent blue sky

    Never shall I forget those flames
    Which consumed my faith forever.
    Never shall I forget that nocturnal silence
    Which deprived me for all eternity of the
    desire to live.

    Never shall I forget those moments
    Which murdered my God and my soul
    And turned my dreams to dust.

    Never shall I forget these things,
    Even if I am condemned to live
    As long as God Himself.
    Never
