This inspiring and deeply penetrating first harvest of poetry by Frieda W. Landau is a welcome addition to the literary expression and therapeutic sharing of the children of Holocaust survivors, demonstrating the Shoah's lingering impact and hovering shadow upon them, and even beyond them.

I agree. Don't forget that during II World War 3 million Poles without Jewish background and 3 million Polish Jews were killed. Totally about 6 million Poles were killed.

Poland suffered the biggest losses in men.

An assessment of Polish war losses, published in 1989 after the Roundtable Talks at Magdalenka, calculated that 264 of every 1000
Polish citizens alive in 1939 did not survive the war. This does not take into account Polish infant mortality during 1939-1945. Understandably, infants were born on and beyond Polish territory and a percentage of those died.
