If you follow my other blog (My Machberet), you may have noticed a weekend post about the 75th anniversary of the pogrom known as “Kristallnacht” and ways in which the event has shown up in my own writing, particularly in some of the stories in my collection Quiet Americans.
But I’m far from the only one to have written about Kristallnacht in some way. This week also brought plenty of reminders of that fact.
After seeing my post, Lawrence Schimel pointed me to this piece of his. Via Twitter, he added that it is part of a larger project–“IN THE SCHWARZWALD: poems using Grimm fairy tales as the lens through which to examine the Holocaust.”
