We wrote Selection after visiting Aushwitz II-Birkenau, the German concentration camp where millions of Jews and political prisoners were jailed and killed. It follows the probable story of a young boy that was "selected" for the gas chambers. I saw this boy’s photograph whilst on the tour. The image of the boy briskly walking, not knowing he was walking to his final resting place, remained with me and a song was borne from it. The repeated lyric, Didn't they have to tell you, echoes into the 21st century as we witness the continual lack of judgment of leaders in positions of responsibility and power.
