In Evidence
Poems of the Liberation of the Nazi Concentration Camps
Hyett, Barbara
In Evidence is a collection of poems in the voices of allied troops who liberated Nazi concentration camps in Europe in the spring of 1945. Barbara Helfgott Hyett heard poems in the eyewitness testimony of United States soldiers. She has shaped the words of thirty speakers into a songle narrative, a single voice.
"In Evidence<.I> is as stark as the stark realities it confronts. The 'liberation" its poems describe was a liberation only for a frightening few sad survivors. For the dead, and for the rest of humanity, it was a condemnation of the soul from which in some ways we shall never recover. This is a valuable and unfortunately a necessary work."—C. K. Williams
