I am 17 by Ap Speelman
I am 17
I was not born until after the war
I am able to go to school
I have parents
I have never gone hungry
I don’t know what war is!
What is hunger?
What is a concentration camp?
What is a razzia?
What is a bomb?
What is fear?
I know we are free!
I know who liberated us!
I know what they sacrificed
Thanks a million for our freedom.
