What People are Saying About This

Elie Wiesel

One cannot but respond with deep emotion and affection to the anguish and pain one finds in your poems. Granted, words are often unable to express the ineffable; but isn�t poetry the art of transcending words? (Elie Wiesel, winner of the 1986 Nobel Peace Prize and author of Night)

Robert Vaughn

In some magical way L.D. Brodsky has managed to short-circuit the readers� normal sensory input. The rhythms of his poetry are the beat of our hearts, his narrative drive the flow of our blood, his powerful imagery our own sinew and bone. When we read Gestapo Crows we are, regardless of our heritage, Jews, our essence comingled with the ashes of our brethren, each of us shouting our silent rage. (Robert Vaughn, author of The American Chronicles)

Robert A. Cohn

Gastapo Crows, like the painfully sharp metaphor of its title poem, builds upon Louis Daniel Brodsky�s previous Holocaust collection, which he coauthored with William Heyen, Falling from Heaven: Holocaust Poems of a Jew and a Gentile. In Gestapo Crows, Brodsky continues his admirable struggle as a Jew and a highly gifted poet to fulfill what he calls his "second-generation survivor�s� responsibility for dealing with the universal legacy of human cruelty and malevolence." This latest collection establishes Brodsky not only as a first-rate poet, but a poet who is struggling mightily to come to terms with his Jewishness through the powerful medium of his distinctive poetic voice. (Robert A. Cohn, Editor-in-Chief/Publisher, St. Louis Jewish Light)

Stephen B. Oates

These magnificent poems are an assault on our complacency, our sleeping memories. Every line of Gestapo Crows, wrenched from a stricken heart, reminds us that each of us died in the ovens of the holocaust, that the crimes of the Nazi era were crimes against our humanity, too, and that all of us have a moral obligation to remember. Mr. Brodsky�s poetic voice, now sadly meditative, now a cry from the ashes, is a haunting, anguished triumph of memory over evil. (Stephen B. Oates, author of the Christopher Award-winning With Malice Toward None: The Life of Abraham Lincoln and the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Book Award-winning Let the Trumpet Sound: The Life of Martin Luther King, Jr.)
