    We hopped off the train only to jump onto the hard, cold, fear filled dirt. I looked ahead seeing only small building and a barb wired fence. Curiously, I asked my mom where we were. She responded with a falling tear and two words, “Concentration Camp”. I was curious towards these two words not understanding what they meant.

I would color pictures of the sky in a deep chocolate color and in white, my favorite color. Everyone always insisted it was not a color, but I refused to believe them. I awoke from my nostalgic dream to…
