Jean Boase-Beier, and co-editor, Marian de Vooght, present this powerful, unique collection of poems written not only by members of Jewish communities (representing the largest group persecuted by the Nazis), but also poems by people who were targeted on other grounds. Some belonged to political or religious groups who openly opposed the Third Reich, or they were homosexual, or members of communities such as Sinti and Roma, or they were perceived by the Nazis as disabled. Most translations are specifically for the anthology, or have not appeared elsewhere. The poems originate from across Europe and gives a sense of the variety of Holocaust victims and their poetic responses.
