“There are times when dreams sustain us more than facts. To read a book and surrender to a story is to keep our very humanity alive.”
—Helen Fagin, from a letter recounting the clandestine school she set up in the Warsaw Ghetto. The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising began April 19, 1943, on the eve of Passover.
From the ghetto,
we rose strengthened by dreams,
bolstered and braced by
through stories of hope
for our humanity.
to keep magic alive–
but remembering always
This is a quadrille for my dVerse prompt, using the word rise. The Theresienstadt Tree seemed a good symbol, especially on Earth Day.
