Things never change

Jude said she went to the camp, sat under peaceful trees near the pond where women and children had waited for their turn.  She told me the usual things – about the size of the camps, the piles of shoes and spectacles, a truth too massive to grapple with.

She looked at me and said: “Things never change.”
