An excerpt from Yakov Khelemskiy' poem "The Star".

"How many stars would shoot down from the sky
Over the victims massacred in Kerch;
O'er those who fell near Vyazma and Orel;
Over the schoolgirl strangled in the noose;
O'er Babi Yar, where, row on silent row,
My neighbors, friends, and kinsmen lie unmourned;
O'er those who, fallen far from hearth and home,
Are covered with scant grains of foreign soil;
O'er those struck down by bullets in Berlin
Mere moments from the ending of the war —
Why, the whole Milky Way would fall to earth
In mournful rains, all through the silent night."http://thefireofthewar.ru/lirika/?p=548
