Bashert

Eram in ultimul an de facultate si studiam Women’s Literature, iar printre alte tipuri de scrieri era si literatura memorialistica a supravietuitorilor marilor traume ale Holocaustului, ale celor din  al Doilea Razboi Mondial- Hieroshima si Nagasaki- si altele asemenea.

Un poem care m-a impresionat foarte mult, pe care l-am copiat pe o foaie de hartie ingalbenita si pe care l-am redescoperit intre filele unei carti, recent, este Bashert. Bahsert inseamna „asa a fost scris”, predestinat. Cele destinate supravietutorilor mi-au vorbit in mod deosebit.

Bashert

by Irena Klepfisz

These words are dedicated to those who survived

because their second grade teacher gave them books

because they did not draw attention to themselves and got lost in the shuffle

because they knew someone who knew someone who could help them and bumped into them on a corner on a Thursday afternoon

because they played it safe

because they were lucky.

These words are dedicated to those who survived

because they refused to give up and defied statistics

because they had faith and trusted in God

because they expected the worst and were always prepared

because they were angry

because they could ask

because they mooched off others and saved their strength

because they turned the other cheek

because they looked the other way.

These words are dedicated to those who survived

because life is a wilderness and they were savage

because life is an awakening and they were alert

because life is a flowering and they blossomed

because life is a struggle and they struggled

because life is a gift and they were free to accept it.

These words are dedicated to those who survived.

Bashert.
