You want to remember, you don’t want to remember
You want to forget, you don’t want to forget.
Lets not talk of railway tracks
Lets not talk of engines and wagons
Lets not talk of parcels carried under arms
Lets not talk of children arriving
Lets not talk of women watching
And, most definitely, lets not talk of buildings
Lets not talk of gaunt faces
Lets not talk of stoops and limps
And no, lets not talk about those buildings
You have to watch, you don’t have to watch
You have to look away, you don’t have to look away

You beat me to it, Drew. I was churning the atrocities at Auschwitz over in my mind and trying to come up with a fitting tribute to those lost and those who survived, but I can't do any better than this, so I'll let it stand.
