Summary (From the publisher):

The Holocaust was an eruption building up over two thousand years. Our world stood by as ordinary men became mass murderers. The fall-out of this epochal event continues to affect our world. In trying to face the Holocaust we stand between the last surviving eyewitnesses and a generation often cut off from the past.

How does poetry respond to the extermination camps? After them, what hope is there? These poems bear witness to the Jewish trauma and its meaning for all of us. The fruit of many years of immersion in the testimonies of survivors, The Gossamer Wall is a new departure for Micheal O’Siadhail. In this book-length sequence, he evokes the Holocaust in a stark, narrative style of great intensity.
