A somber piece that comes out of the composer’s experience of a visit to Auschwitz and seeing pictures of the young people that died there. The melody is simple with slight changes in rhythm for variety, the harmonies are mostly in thirds, minimal dissonance used for effect. The accompaniment is simple arpeggios.
