A disturbing collections of poetry, Ghosts of the Holocaust reveals the lengthy shadows cast by Hitler's "Final Solution."
Stewart Florsheim collected these poems by the second generation, children who grew up in a world that, while comfortable, failed to provide answers about the atrocities to which their elders were victim. The poets reflect on their families' experiences before and after the Holocaust. They write about "adjusting" to a new world, coping with their own problems, and overcoming a very different kind of generation gap. The poems shock us into an awareness that, not only the survivors, but also their children live with a history filled with horror and injustice.
As disquieting as most of these poems are, they also affirm life. In his foreword, Gerald Stern writes, "It is not that we will either forget or reclaim those years because of these poems; it is not that the poems will even make the past bearable. It is that, in our greatest loss, we have a victory."
