My Little Jewish Friend’s Journal- by Iuga Ileana, 13 years old, 1 Decembrie School
I felt a warm hand touching my shoulder.There was a little girl who asked me to join her in a long journey…So we flew far away,we seemed to travel in time,as everything was changing.
We arrived in a cold,durty place where I could see thousands of people:men,women,old people and children being tortured,beatten ,forced to work hard.Most of them were silk,exhausted,weak,hopeless and,when they couldn’t resist anymore,they were shot right there,with no mercy.
There were so much suffering,so much pain,screamings,shootings,a plenty of tears,blood and…death.
I wondered myself crying:”How can any people be so cruel?!What had those poor damned done,as they were tortured,beaten?
I was sinking in that crowd of scared people…when a light drove me far from there.In that moment,the light became a little girl:
– Here you are,my dear friend,Karla!she said.I’m Anne Frank,one of the six milion of innocent people killed in the masacre you call”Holocaust” and all these unfair,miserable treatments because we are Jewish people!You will be my journal,Karla! You will tell everyone how awful my short life was…
And as far as I was hearing her confessious, her voice became weaker and weaker and got lost in time.
I woke up at my home,at my desk,watching amazed an old notebook.It was signed”Anne Frank”,so definitely I hadn’t written it, but, at the end of Anne’s journal,there was signed:”To my suffering camarade,Karla Agui”.
