Anna Rabinowitz on "Darkling"

December 11, 2011

Poet Anna Rabinowitz found a shoe box full of old letters and photos of family and friends killed in the Holocaust.  She felt compelled to tell their stories, so she wrote the book-length poem "Darkling" to feature their voices.  She tells Anne Strainchamps about the acrostic buried in the poem.  We also hear excerpts from the opera "Darkling."



Kudos, Anna! Recognition so well deserved..
With affection,
Rose and Bob Rothstein
