Collecting 119 poems on subjects that are indelibly linked with the Holocaust, Holocaust Poetry commemorates the sanctity of those who have died - both Jews and non-Jews - during World War II. A solemn affirmation of our survival as men and women, this volume not only pays homage to the past but attests to the struggles that we, as human beings, still face - often quite brutally - from day to day. The 59 contributors range from world-renowned writers to the voices of poets who are relatively unknown. Also preserved here are the poems of those who have perished, the unknown soldiers, the unheralded heroes, whose lives can only be recorded today by the moving words they left behind.
