Woman and child in a concentration camp

Orders [Flash Fiction]

by Joshua Perrett

“Mothers. Now that you have signed the declaration you shall be spared of labour,” the warden said. “You will follow General Kohler to the accommodation where you and your children shall be provided with uniforms.”

The mothers and children were led to an oblong building, its concrete chimney casting a shadow across the camp.

“Your uniforms are beside your assigned showers,” General Kohler said.

As the taps were turned, jets of fire engulfed those below. Within seconds the room was an inferno. The mothers’ corpses fell to the floor but the children stood regimented in the flames, awaiting their orders.
