small sign near the windows reads:
|“A Jew forgives, why can’t you?” “A Jew will never forget, why do you?”|
This House of God, true Love explained,
On Beams of Light through Windows stained;
By Chagall’s Hand, St. Stephan’s paned,
For peaceful Calm, therein contained;
Grand, Gothic Beauty, still, ordained!
War’s savage Fires will rant and rave,
To ravage Spires, cross Apse then Nave;
A Church, restored, with Spirits brave,
Would buttress all, beyond the Grave;
Men, reconciled, their Souls could save!
