You can read a short poem, written by a Holocaust survivor, here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/harry-borden-survivor-photography_us_58ebf7e8e4b0c89f9120b711

Begin quote:

In Limbo
In the black hole of our
Planet Earth
Auschwitz
They drove me out when it ceased to be;
Yet who will drive it out of me?
It still exists.
Only death will be my exorcist.

End quote

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that “Limbo” is a place where Catholics go if they have not been baptized before they die.  I don’t think that there were ever any Jews in Limbo. On the other hand, there were Catholic prisoners in the Nazi death camps, and this poem was probably written by a Catholic.

Here is one definition of limbo which you can read at

  1. So Limbo dancing is only done by lapsed Catholics? Hilarious. Words are borrowed to fit other items, events or states. No one should mock the holocaust and, by the way, it was not just Jews but Romanies, Blacks, Homosexuals, Socialists, Disabled, Dwarves, Russians, Poles … the list is much longer. You should try researching archived material from reputable sources on the crimes of people like Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin, Mao, Kim Jong Un … will the world never learn that auhoritarian leader inevitably ‘make shortcuts to ease red tape’ …

    My grandmother too was Shoahed many times. She endured so much at the hands of the Nazi murderers, and her trauma has been passed on to me in my genes.
    I suffer daily from the cruel treatment she endured. This is her story exactly as she told it to me:

    “It was very terrifying to be a pregnant woman in the clutches of the Nazi murderers because we did not want our babies to be crushed and bayoneted and turned into wine!

    I remember my dread as my due date with my son Eli approached. The SS doctor would say, “Susan, your baby is healthy now in your filthy Jew womb, but his birth will be his death!”

    I cried and cried, and prayed to G*d that he take from me my Eli to spare him the suffering the SS men had in store. But G*d had other plans for me and my baby. When his birth came in the dead of night, a kindly prisoner who had been a doctor in Berlin helped me to deliver him, but then he said to me with tears in his eyes, “Susan, your son will surely be turned into wine. You must conceal him.”

    I knew he was right. I nursed my baby for the first time, but before dawn I put my Eli back into my womb to save his life. The next day the SS doctor told me, “any day now, Jew, and we will have your son!” I would not let him. Every night I would give birth again, without crying out in pain, nurse my Eli, and return him to my womb.

    He never cried, not once! For two years I did this, suffering the pain of child labor every night and the pain of forced physical labor during the day. This is how my son escaped the Nazi murderers.

    I remember one day, about a year after Eli’s first birth, the SS doctor was inspecting me and fondling my breasts, and he said “what is this miracle that keeps your son from our clutches! Truly we Germans are persecuting G*d’s people.” I will never forget his words.”

  4. Once again,off topic. Do a piece on “holocaust porn”. Right hand to God,this shit is real.
    It’s made mostly for and by people in Israel. The Jews are so protective of their precious holo,yet they’ll make money off it any way they can.

  5. “Get yourself a limbo girl,give that chic a limbo whirl. There’s a limbo moon above,gonna fall in limbo love”.
    I’m sorry. Their limbo poem,was begging for that one. I’m surprised the idiot that wrote the poem,hasn’t found a way to demonize Chubby Checker
