The Holocaust

A house, calm day, family playing

All of a sudden the sky turns black  

Family inspect the window

‘This doesn’t look good’

They then heard a knock on the door

The mother whispered to the children to go in the basement and hide

She then went and opened the door

An officer was at the door and said, ‘Are there any children here?’

The mother said ‘No’

The officer went in the house to check

He went upstairs, to the attic

Saw nothing

Then he went to the basement, the mother starting to worry

The officer couldn’t see anything so he left

The mother starting to cry

All of a sudden she could see her children at the door


‘Well we knew he was going to inspect the basement so when he was

Upstairs we went out the basement and out the door

And when he went into the basement we then went back in and went upstairs’

‘I knew you would be able to outwit that officer, I just had to see you before I could

Stop crying’

‘We know,’ said the children
