Simply Six Minutes

***

The charming old couple peered at the now overgrown railroad tracks. They looked for a while and then at each other and hugged for a long time. They knew seeing these tracks again would be emotional and bring back those terrible memories, but it was also a sign of triumph.

They met in a horrible train, on its way to the camps. They both were children and since separated from their parents, they huddled together to keep warm and safe. Both quests went unanswered as soon as the train stopped and they were taken to different hovels. It was fortunate they were selected to work the same job and would meet whenever possible.

It was a while before the allied troops came to free them and by that time they were teenagers and old enough to go on their own. They have never been separated since that day.
