Child in a concentration camp

Child curled like a frail bird
Child curled and afraid on a concrete floor
Child hungry without sufficient food
Child taken from her mother screams
Child is left with no means to keep clean
Child cannot brush his teeth
Child is locked in a cage
Child with no nappy soils herself
Child gets no rest from the harsh light
Child is alone at two years old
Child is left with no medical help
Child cannot sleep with no bed
