Lineal Descent

We are our Bubbies'  
granddaughters—        
  tribal survivors        
       
Never again        
will we be imprisoned—        
  beaten, owned, or raped        
       
But, fight to the death        
for our God-given right—      
  to live as women

This is more about women than religious affiliation. It is purported that the bottom are the granddaughters of the top ( concentration camp photo ). I cannot verify that as truth; however, be that as it may be - we are all one tribe; therefore, truth does exist within the image itself between elder and younger generations. The collage deeply moved me regardless.
