DEDICATION

At Buchenwald, Germany, the ashes of man's dignity were strewn ignobly on the bloody soil of a Nazi Concentration Camp.

Those whom fate spared from murder lived by sheer force of faith and hope of liberation. Into their emaciated bodies and tortured souls, we of the 120th Evacuation Hospital tried to inject the medicines of recovery.

Most of them died in daring to oppose a regime of hate and bloody conquest. Many suffered and died of their courage.

To them and their comrades we humbly dedicate this history.

A Prayer for The Day of Remembrance

In the rising of the sun and its going down,
We will remember them.

In the blowing of the wind and the chill of winter,
We will remember them.

In the opening of the buds and the rebirth of spring,
We will remember them.

In the blueness of the sky and the warmth of summer,
We will remember them.

In the rustling of the leaves and the beauty of autumn,
We will remember them.

In the beginning of the year and when it ends,
We will remember them.

When we are weary and in need of strength,
We will remember them.

When we are lost and sick at heart,
We will remember them.

When we have joys we yearn to share,
We will remember them.

So long as we live they too shall live,
For they are a part of us and we will remember them,
May their memory ever be a blessing to us,
May their souls be bound up in the band of eternity,
May the Giver of Peace send peace to all among us
who mourn, and remember, as together,
We will remember them.
