The Last Lullaby is the culmination of Aaron Kramer's fifty-year devotion to translating the poetry of the Holocaust. The full horror of the genocide and the sublime spirit of those who resisted are given voice on these pages. These poets - originally writing in Yiddish - speak from the ghettos, way-stations, death camps, and partisan forests. Placing each group in its historic and literary context with comprehensive introductory essays, Professor Kramer presents works mostly unavailable in English - until now.
