many versions of this poem include the last line which displays an obvious
volta in the text and changes the meaning of the poem:
I beg the Lord not to hear.

the holocaust is a vehicle for this poem. it is about anger and how, while
it is a necessary emotion for survival in the most loathsome and horrific
of situations, it must not be the sole ruler of one's life.

I find it incredible that both of you have missed entirely where this poem
came from. Ever heard of Theodor Adorno? I doubt you have. Look him up
immediately, along with the phrase "poetry after Auschwitz." According to
Adorno, this poem was barbaric.
Dig a little deeper next time.

Thank you, Marivi. I really don't think that anyone could have put that
better. The Holocaust is such a horrible thing that shames the otherwise
amazing German culture and history. Germans should be proud of their
heritage, country, and history, but there should be NO racism involved!!!

After Auschwitz is an absolutely diret poem. It makes us think about the
cruelty of the Human Being.
