In Holocaust poet Charles Reznikoff's subject is people's suffering at the hand of another His source materials are the US government's record of the trials of the Nazi criminals before the Nurembe. Does a poet write a poem or does a poet make a poem I prefer the latter verb And never has that verb been true than for Charles Reznikoff's Holocaust For this poem Reznikoff doesn't write a word The poem is built on two sources the Nurenberg war trials and transcripts of the Adolf Eichmann trial Reznikoff never intrudes upon these texts he slices edits and lineates He does not comment on the horrors the words recount And horrors there are a'plentyReznikoff does not write he winnows existing texts down to their barest essence He takes history and allows reportage to reveal truth And what emerges is a poem A poem with sections entitled Deportation or Massacres or Gas Chambers and Gas Trucks is a poem that can reveal the bottomless evil of mankind Because he doesn't write a word for this poem Reznikoff seems to be saying that there's not a word to be said Nothing can capture the horror the real visceral horror of Nazi crimes than the words of those who saw it themselves No poem No novel No song Let's allow all this to unspool says the Reznikoff in my mind And I imagine a coil of wire springing against its winding Let's tighten all this down into history say those who would placate us but Reznikoff shows how the a coil of stiff wire will not yield to the turning of the spool Reznikoff has made a poem here Holocaust is the last poem of his life but is the first poem of his that I've read What an introduction By choosing to hide himself to hide the poet behind the words Reznikoff suggests that the horrors of the Holocaust cannot be encapsulated locked down trapped in a poem or novel Reznikoff suggests that to actually sit down and try to create from one's own imaginings a piece of indelible literature about one of mankind's blackest periods is folly There are no words to be made There is however this poem

HolocaustAngement and the rhythms of the testimony set as verse on the page a poem of witness by the perpetrators and the survivors of the Holocaust He lets the terrible history unfold in history's own word. hmm not sure about this one an interesting experiment an excellent use of historical documents but good poetry im not so sure i think you could get a lot by just reading Those Were the Days edited by ernst klee they even describe a few of the same events the one that always gets me is the one about the boy crying and his father pointing up at the sky to calm him down its certainly a necessary read but not necessary “art”
