Maybe …

The times are currently very miserable,
They are almost unbearable,
Where it will ultimately lead,
Whether it’s just a few days

Or whether it will last for months,
Who dares to predict
The day, the hour of Hitler’s downfall,
And of those who torment us now.

We guess it and we don’t know it,
And we almost want to despair,
The rescue seems far in the distance,
It doesn’t seem to walk along.

One asks: Will I get away from it,
Will I experience peace,
Sometimes I think yes, sometimes I fear no,
Who will give the answer.

In the end, I find solace in the fact,
I’m not without chances,
Perhaps I will be liberated once again,
Escape from these dances.

Experience the time that comes after,
A time of justice and peace,
Where the madness is silenced,
And reason triumphs.

Reason and humanity,
And love and trust,
Perhaps I will, liberated and with joy,
Witness a new time.
