Poetry by eighty-five authors, including Primo Levi, Elie Wiesel, Anne Sexton, Stephen Spender, Yevgeny Yevtushenko, and lesser-known writers explores feelings and subjects surrounding the Holocaust

McMillan Palgrave
Holocaust Poetry is a lasting and solemn tribute to the memory of the past and to the hope of the future.

Behold, God of Abraham, God of mercy,
Open your eyes as you have opened mine,
Open your eyes and see what I have seen... --Elie Wiesel

She felt a kind of envy for
Those who stood naked in their truth:
Where to be one of her people was
To be one of those millions killed. --Stephen Spender

And death looks on with a casual eye
and picks at the dirt under his fingernail. --Anne Sexton

Consider whether this is a man.
Who labors in the mud
Who knows no peace
Who fights for a crust of bread
Who dies at a yes or a no. --Primo Levi

The volume includes 119 poems and the voices of 59 poets.


Blackwell North Amer
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.
