An excerpt from the poem "I Saw It!"

Translated by Maxim D. Shrayer

 I Saw It !


Nearby, a mauled Jewish woman,

And a small child with her. Is he awake?

The mother's grey shawl is wrapped with such care

Around the babe's neck.

O maternal, o ancient strength!

Walking to the execution, just before she was killed,

An hour, half an hour, before the grave,

Mother was saving child from a chill.

And even death has not pried them apart.

Over them the enemies have no power. An auburn trickle from the child’s ear Seeps into the mother’s cupped palm.…." (1942 )http://www.perelmuterverlag.de/FC42013.pdf
