The chilling ‘December 1942’ by Cork singer/ songwriter Ricky Lynch telling of the arrival of a train from the Warsaw ghetto at Auschwitz “to unload its human cargo/met by demons and by devils and their savage dogs”.

It’s freezing cold the snow comes down
there’s ice on the barbed wire
Everything is ready right on time
another train is due

Now it’s coming down the line
it’s heading for the fire
Just another December day
in 1942

The train is packed with dispossessed
people from the ghetto
Treated worse than animals
in some cruel filthy zoo

Terrorised and beaten
starved into submission
So it was on that December day
in 1942

The train came to a stop
to unload its human cargo
Met be demons and by devils
and their savage dogs

Curses blows and whips rain
down on those exhausted people
But their deadly nightmare
had only just begun

And they cried out to the Lord God
Creator of the Universe
In our despair we call on you

But all their tears and all their prayers
they went unanswered
On that God-forsaken December Day
in 1942

Women men and children
in that freezing winter twilight
Families torn in two
by thugs with sticks and guns

Made to undress
and driven naked to the slaughter
And then into the chamber
they were forced to run

When the doors were locked and sealed
no mercy and no pity
The word came down the line
and the orders were carried through

Just another number
to add to their statistics
On another God-forsaken day in 1942

And they cried out to the Lord God
Creator of the Universe
In our despair
we call on you

But all their tears and all their prayers
they went unanswered
On that God-forsaken
December Day in 1942
