1. Female Victims of Buchenwald Memorial
Inscription.

No one said farewell
No one erected a cross or a stone
but they live
as long as people remember
the more than 27,000 women and girls
from over 30 countries who in 1944 and 1945
were detainees in 27 outside
sub-camps of Buchenwald
used as slave labor victims of Nazi violence
and the death marches

Non omnis moriar [Not all die]
————————
Niemand nahm abschied
niemand errichtete ein kreuz oder
einen stein doch ihr lebt
solange menschen sich eurer erinnern
den mehr als 27000 frauen und mädchen
aus über 30 ländern
1944 und 1945 als häftlinge in
27 außenlagern des KZ Buchenwald
zur sklavenarbeit gezwungene opfer
nationalsozialistischer gewalt
und der todesmärsche

Non omnis moriar
