Requiem: Poems of the Terezin Ghetto
Requiem: Poems of the Terezin Ghetto was a long time coming. Like Worlds Afire, it is a collection of poems rooted in history. The setting for these poems in Terezin, a Nazi concentration camp that was little more than a way station for Prague’s artistic and creative Jews while they waited for their transport to the gas chambers. The poems give voice to the dignity and resilience of the inmates and honor their commitment to art and music in the face of great brutality.
