A haunting narrative poem written by a Gentile woman who was born in Germany at the onset of WWII. She grew up, went to school, but not until the age of 19 when she was visiting another country did she learn of the holocaust. Her confrontation with her parents provoked a lasting schism. She comes to America and there hears tales of the holocaust from her East European Jewish neighbors. Moving. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 014058787X, Paperback)

A German woman recalls her childhood in the rubble of Hitler's Germany--and the shattering revelation, years later, of the Holocaust in this haunting sequence of prose poems. Interwoven with these are the wrenching stories of the Holocaust survivors and their children who were her neighbors in an Eastern neighborhood in Brooklyn in the mid-sixties. Duba's confrontation with his heritage is unflinching and the stories hard to forget. Online promo.
