Daniel Pelka, RIP




 Daniel was denied food, force-fed salt, held under the water in a bath until unconscious and regularly beaten. He was also imprisoned in a box-room and died alone in the dark from a head injury in March 2012. This happened in modern Britain. A sibling was the only one who helped him despite visible signs of injury while Daniel openly scavenged for food and drank filthy water. Society failed him. Why?

May Angels lead you into paradise;
may the Martyrs receive you at your coming
and lead you to the holy city of Jerusalem.
May a choir of Angels receive you,
and with Lazarus, who once was poor, may you have eternal rest.

  1. Dreadful to think this can happen in the 21st Century. Where were the teachers, the doctors, the social workers? May he rest in peace.
