Poetry is the carrier for both the individual and the collective during traumatic times of massive loss. It has the ability to contain the everyday and mythical, the worldly and unspoken dimensions of personal and cultural experience. Through poetry, we embrace the unimaginable, fragmented aspects of loss long before their impact emerges in the therapeutic setting. The words of the poet remember long after he is gone with a vividness and a complexity that allows us to go back in time yet keep the distance needed for healing.
This conference presents a space of remembrance in which we observe the loss that connects our individual histories and offers us an opportunity to reflect the voice of the poet. Holocaust poetry is a voice of the past and yet still alive as the voice of our contemporary culture.
Drawing from the works of Henryka Łazwertowna, Zuzanna Ginczanka, Bruno Schulz, Krzysztof Kamil Baczyński, and others we will examine their imagery applying the methods of depth psychology, active imagination and experiential theatre.
