A poem dedicated to the Chinese Jews of Kaifeng, China. Whose community and 1000 year old history is being slowly silenced by the Chinese government.

Removed The Star. A Poem for the Chinese Jews of Kaifeng, China.

They go and remove it

The Star of David

From the blue gates

And plaques

Everyone, quiet

Everyone, aware

Not one who is citizen

Is encouraged

To be a Jew

They go and say

You are all no more

But only written off

In the History Books

Where are your graves?

Alone, quiet in Hebrew

In the forests

Where is your Synagogue?

No more but a Hospital

Where is your people?

Quiet, Aware

All are watching
