You who are a poet ....
By: Josef Mengele

The fact that you, who is a poet,
alone, are alone in your will,
they thy pride: The fact that you miss
tell friend to the woman, who pay your Trust,
take it out: I know it is
the word is an empty consolation when rolling mourning,
Take it out, take it out:

Who by the large and small through suffering
-Threaded on a string of pearls
cling to the many thousands of hearts -
passed with strength and courage
who paid even the Schnerz,
geforat to him in sorrow and melody,
will not lose heart at the suffering:
Yes going on, you sing to you free:
as white to say your word poet,
worth and how beautiful the world is yet.



Auf Deutsch

Der du ein Dichter bist....
By: Josef Mengele


Dass du, der du ein Dichter ist,
alleine bist, allein in deinem Wollen,
das sie dein stolz: Dass du vermisst
den freünd das Weib, das deiner Traue zollen,
nimms hin: Ich weiss es ist
das Wort ein leerer Trost, wenn Traünen rollen,
Nimms hin, nimms hin:

Wer durch das grosse und durch kleines Leid
-auf eine Perlenschnur gereiht
an der manch tausend Herzen hangen -
mit Kraft und Mut hindurchgegangen,
wer selbst den Schnerz getragen,
ihn in zu Leid geforat und Melodei,
wird nicht am Leid verzagen:
Ja, singe los dich, nach dich frei:
so weiss dein Dichterwort zu sagen,
wie wert und schön die welt doch sei.
Please note that I TRANSLATED THIS! I couldn't get 2 words so I decided to put it up in German too. I love the Doktor's words. *swoons* He's so sweet and he makes you think. Any way, it was kinda hard to read, but if you wanna see where I got it I got it from here [link] see if you have better luck than me. -_-

I'm trying so hard to figure out what it means even though the best poetry doesn't need to mean anything so I got over that and then spasmed on my floor for a while swoning over how beautiful his words are!! X) He can hardly become any more wonderful (Cue someone proving me wrong, PLEASE!)

LOL I do know a guy that as Mengele's face almost perfectly. He has a lot of the same features from his teeth structure to his nose and ears and of coarse his eyes. ^////^ He's a friend of mine who I have an uber crush on. ^^'

He didn't have them at the same time, that's not his style unlike other SS men.

I honestly have no idea. I think it may have been during his stay at Auschwitz when he was depressed.

There are several in the book Mengele: The Complete Story, by Gerald Posner, that was where I read the first one I knew about. You should try googling that, you might have a bit of luck. :)

Oh. LOL I actually own the book just haven't gotten around to reading it yet. It was the first Doktor M book I ever bought, but my mother doesn't approve of my interest in the third Reich so I have to read the books in private or late at night.

Thats really crappy. I went through and took out the entire WWII section of my library. Have you heard the voice clips of him singing that are going around? I actually get teary-eyed when I listen to them.

Gives me chills, but admittedly, it's also a good poem, as much as the guy who wrote it freaks me out beyond belief.
(On another note, maybe not sweet, but certainly interesting.)
