I cannot remember everything.
I must have been unconscious most of the time.
I remember only the grandiose moment
when they all started to sing, as if prearranged,
the old prayer they had neglected for so many years
the forgotten creed!
But I have no recollection how I got underground
to live in the sewers of Warsaw for so long a time.
