The sacred duty of Holocaust remembrance — commemorating the dead, honoring the living, and posing the pertinent theological, ethical, and political questions generated by the Holocaust — is the substance
of Charles Fishman’s compelling collection of American Holocaust poetry. Fishman successfully assembles works that render a historically remote and often painfully resisted subject in a manner that makes the
catastrophe real. . . . One is grateful for the book’s sound critical notes, its exploration of the moral implications of the Holocaust and problematics of writing Holocaust poetry, and its witness to the terrifying truths of human history while asserting the indestructibility of the human spirit. Highly recommended.

This anthology of American Holocaust poetry will be welcomed by both teachers and students, as well as by those merely curious about the Shoah’s resonance in the poetic imagination. Furthermore, its sheer comprehensiveness will make this book a valuable addition to any library.
