"In My Son Writes a Report on the Warsaw Ghetto, this group of poems commemorates my paternal grandparents and maternal grandmother, who perished at Auschwitz, and my mother, who survived."
Steven Klepetar's poetry provides a multi-generational chorus of voices distilled through the suffering of memory. Klepetar--the son, grandson, husband, and especially father--offers his readers a loving poetic voice that bridges time and space. "My Son Writes a Report on the Warsaw Ghetto" is more than another collection of Holocaust poetry, it is a unique personal reflection that only a survivor's child could hear within himself. A beloved English professor, Klepetar, shares his mind, heart and memories that teach and heal.
