As long as I reside in their minds and hearts, I will never truly be gone.
The devastation caused by World War II is described by historians in terms of military strategies and battles, the toll on economics, and the numbers of dead. But only the stories of those whose lives were changed or lost, can convey the true horror of the war. These were people very much like ourselves—men, women, children, siblings, poets, soldiers, students, professionals, laborers, givers, takers, jokers, dancers, lovers, dreamers, cowards and brave.
Each is the hero of his own tale. Each tale underscores the uniqueness of human perception based upon personality and circumstances.
By listening to the voices of those with stories to tell, we can grow in our appreciation of what it means to be human.
WAR CRIES: UNHEARD STORIES, UNMARKED GRAVES provides a stage for the voices—many inspired by people present in Europe during World War II—to speak their truths. The characters behind the poems come from different religions, different professions, and different ideologies.
Like all of us, they want to be heard. They want to be understood. Most of all…they want to be remembered.
