    This amazing collection is able to destroy all faith in humanity and then entirely rebuild it only a few pages later It is truly amazing to see the wonderful art that is able to come out of such a horrible time in history The poems are wonderfully divided into sections dealing with various aspects and ramifications of the holocaust One of my favorite poems from this collection is Riddle by William Heyen In this poem ...

    The translations are not always the best choice, but it s an interesting collection and includes some good and important but less known works A strange mix of survivor and non survivor poetry though and rarely indicated.
