Ravensbruck Prayer

O Lord, 

Remember not only the men and women of good will but also those of evil will.

But do not remember all the suffering they have inflicted upon us; 
remember the fruits we have borne thanks to this suffering –

    our comradeship,
    our loyalty,
    our humility,
    our courage,
    our generosity,
    the greatness of heart which has grown out of all this;

And when they come to the judgement, 
let all the fruits that we have borne be their forgiveness.

in Ravensbruck where 92,000 women and children died in the Holocaust.
