Acrostic for June

Something vagely topical here...

Solution to the May acrostic

« Each time the train stopped, there was a beat of hope. A destination, any place on earth, was better than being lost in the bottomless night. The doors were thrown back and they saw a snowy countryside. A German soldier was shouting at them. If anyone tries to escape he will be shot. If anyone has died, throw out the body. »
