let all the fruits….

“O Lord, Remember not only the men and women Of good will, but also those of ill will. But do not remember all the suffering they inflicted on us; Remember the fruits we have bought, thanks to This suffering — our comradship, Our loyalty, our humily, our courage, Our generosity, the greatness of heart Which has grown out of all this, and when They come to judgement let all the fruits Which we have borne be their forgiveness.”

Anonymous poem left by a body of a dead child at the Ravensbruck death camp during World War II.
