Inscription on one of the glass towers of the New England Holocaust Memorial. The numbers you can see inscribed in the glass are the numbers of the inmates at the camps.
"From our barracks we could see the gas chambers, A heart-rending cry of women and children reached us there. We were overcome by a feeling of helplessness. There we were watching and unable to do anything.
We had already worked out a plan of escape. But at that moment I decided -- we must not simply escape. We must destroy the fascists and the camp."
