The Hair: Jacob Korman's Story

Ten kilometers from Warsaw,
I arrived in Rembertow where
hundreds of Jews had lived
until the wheel turned: Judenrein.

You think they let themselves be taken?
They would not fill the trucks.
Men were shot trying to pull guns
from the guards' hands.

and hands of dead women
clutched hair, hair of SS guards,
blood-patched hair everywhere,
a velt mit hor, a field of hair.
