In a musical, nothing dreadful ever happens.
I’ve seen it all.
- You haven’t seen elephants, kings or Peru!
- I’m happy to say I had better to do
- What about China? Have you seen the Great Wall?
- All walls are great, if the roof doesn’t fall!
the golden echo
FUCK YEAH KIMBRA!
I was wholly come of age. I was a married woman when I realized I hated my father beyond all words to tell it. It was winter and my father was a working for weeks on the speech he calls “Poland jewish problem”. Orderly I type those speeches… and I don’t hear the words, ther meaning, but… This time I came upon a word that I have never heard it before. The solution for Poland Jewish Problem, he concludes… Is “vernichtung”.
I have not meant to go to the ghetto that afternoon… But something made me go there. I stood there I don’t know how long… watching these people that my father condemned to die. All these men, these women, these children would be “verichtung”.
I suddenly remembered that my father is waiting for that speech… And I hurry home to finish that… I make so many mistakes in the sentences and… I run with it to the University and my father has no time to check that before speaking. And he get up in front of all those people… and he reads the speech and make those mistakes… and I see him getting so angry. And when it was over, he came up to me… I was with my husband, of course.
And if front of him and all his colleague he said: “Zozia… your intelligence is pulp”…
I didn’t have any courage to say “Yes, but what about the jews?”. The jewish people… After that, he didn’t trust me anyway and neither my husband.
