Jean Boase-Beier and Dr Marian de Vooght from the University of East Anglia will introduce and read poems that have been translated from different languages.
Under Nazi rule during World War II millions of people from all over Europe were persecuted, deported to concentration camps and killed. Groups targeted included Jews, Gypsies, mentally disabled people, homosexuals, individuals with so-called deviant life styles, men and women who resisted the regime. Numerous poems were written during the time of horror, by poets forced to live in ghettos but also by those who were imprisoned or taken to concentration camps. The writing didn't stop after the war. Survivors of death camps created poetry to express their experience of evil, torment and despair.
Also people who had gone into exile but lost family and friends wrote poems to deal with their trauma. Others wrote in empathy and imagined the pain victims had gone through in poetic forms. To this day, Holocaust poetry is being written. The continued translation of Holocaust poems is important; first of all for the survival of the texts themselves and with that, the knowledge and remembrance of the suffering across linguistic borders.
Translators of poetry must analyze the specific forms and styles poets have used to make a meaningful text. They take special care to create versions in English that do justice to as many aspects of the original as possible, including cases where meaning is uncertain or ambiguous.

Simonetta Agnello Hornby vive a Londra da 40 anni dove esercita la professione di avvocato dei minori. Laura Lepschy dal al The majority of this collection of Roth's haunting, acidly percipient, and sometimes blackly comic journalistic essays have never before been translated into English and they form the latest installment in Hesperus' bestselling On series. Incisive and ironic, the writing evokes Roth's bitterness, frustration and morbid despair at the coming annihilation of the free world while displaying his great nostalgia for the Hapsburg Empire into which he was born and his ingrained fear of nationalism in any form.
Detailing the duplicities and grotesque criminalities of the Nazi regime, Roth denounces the terror sewn by Nazi storm troopers, the propaganda of Goebbels, the round ups, the assassinations and the construction of concentration camps, alongside the seeming blindness and somnambulism of the rest of Europe, which appears paralysed in the face of virulent Nazi expansion. Following the Anchluss in , Roth, cut off from his homeland, isolated in a Paris itself gradually darkening under the looming shadow of war, sunk into a self destructive alcoholism which led inexorably to his desolate end the following year in a Parisian hospital.

Poetry is an important way of keeping the memory of the Holocaust alive; but how can such poetry be translated for readers far removed in time and place from the Holocaust? Fiction ensures that the lived experience of the Holocaust can be shared by those who were not there and presents the appalling facts of the Holocaust in a way that can be more easily understood than mere numbers.
More than prose fiction, poetry uses gaps, silences, fragments, ambiguities and suggestions to make the reader actively engage with the text, thereby affecting them profoundly. But Holocaust poetry is usually written in languages other than English. Translators are very aware that with such poetry it is especially important to do justice to the original work, but this task is no easy one: Holocaust poetry is often very personal, its references to the Holocaust are frequently oblique and the real essence of this poetry resides as much in what it does not say as in what it does.

He conceived of cinema as a means of giving voice to the lower classes, workers, peasants and the humble; people at the margins of society, victims of exploitation.
With his debut as director of Caccia tragica ; Tragic Pursuit , a story about the struggle of peasants to regain control of land devastated by the war, he became a significant force in the neorealist movement, distinguishing himself as a staunch filmmaker who would create a populist version of cinema with the scope of changing and shaping society.
With his second film; Riso amaro , Bitter Rice he achieved world recognition with a nomination for an Oscar for best original story in The film was also the fifth most profitable film released in Italy and was distributed internationally, including the former Socialist block. When the two films were released right wing critics carried out a defamatory campaign against De Santis and for the latter film, the Parliament proposed investigating possible illegal funds from enemy communist countries.
The newly reconstructed Italian film industry depended on state funding that demanded a more optimistic type of film with milder socio-political criticisms. In one the attempt to document everyday life or past events dominates, in the other, adept showmanship seeks to dramatize reality.
His final goal was to create cinematic spectacles which would prompt or propose forms of social behavior based on human and class solidarity by denouncing injustices. His artistic and socio-political concerns were integral to his effort to heighten the artistic awareness of the uneducated masses. His dream was to create a national cinema that could introduce elements of higher culture in a popular media to fill the cultural vacuum left by elitist Italian traditional culture and also to reduce the American cultural hegemony.
He did not compromise his principles and political agenda even during the sixties when it became hard for him to find producers willing to finance his populist stories. The audience, once accustomed to realist stories on hunger or on how to secure temporary jobs, wanted films on the new problems of a modern nation with rising living standards. He wanted his name to remain associated with a genuine popular narrative style that had at one time attracted a mass audience with moving plots, epic breadth, and popular themes.
In spite of this contribution he is often remembered as one of the first Italian postwar filmmaker to have restored the star system in the Italian film industry. Nonetheless they show an outstanding technical ability and a passion for formalized beauty and sensuality. For De Santis, Neorealism was the result of a specific historical moment, the Resistance, in which the working class entered as protagonist of its own destiny to win freedom and to demand the right to its own aspirations.
These historical events captured by various directors changed cinema, making it no longer a medium for the middleclass but a medium of the people. He also focused on the role of the medium itself as a mean of mass communication and as repository of collective imagination.
Born in Fondi, a small town in the southern part of the Latium region, De Santis at the age of seventeen is sent to a Catholic boarding-school in Rome. A year later he attends the Liceo Classico Giulio Cesare. After graduation he enrolls at the University of Rome to study humanities and then without finishing his degree, enrolls in the Italian film school, Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia, where he studies with professors Umberto Barbaro, Luigi Chiarini and German critic Rudolf Arnheim. He graduates in with a short film La gatta The Cat based on a story that he had written.
That same year with the help of Gianni Puccini he starts to write film reviews and becomes one of the promoters of the renewal of Italian cinema. In his main writings for Cinema, the most important pre-Second World War Italian film journal, he calls for realism not as a passive obeisance to a static and objective truth but as a creative force. The experience with the journal culminates in the making of Ossessione Obsession directed by Luchino Visconti, one of the leaders of the group, as one of his assistant directors. The film is still considered a transgression against the dominant Fascist culture.
In he becomes involved in the resistance movement against Nazi-Fascism and after the liberation of Italy he works as assistant director on the first films on the Italian Resistance with Aldo Vergano, Il sole sorge ancora ; The Sun Rises Again and Scalo merci ; Freight Yard , started by Roberto Rossellini and finished by Marcello Pagliero under the new title Desiderio ; Desire. The later consists of three episodes that recount the trial of Pietro Caruso, police chief of Rome during the German occupation and his subsequent trial and execution along with Pietro Roch, his collaborator.
It ends with the reconstruction of Italy by the progressive forces. In the eighties, he teaches film directing at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome. In he makes his first tour in the United States of America. In the summer of he teaches filmmaking at Middlebury College for the summer session of the Italian School, where in he makes his first video: Ciao, ciao Middlebury. In he dies of a heart attack in a Roman hospital. Marco Grossi, Virginio Palazzo editor ,Caccia tragica. Giovanni Spagnoletti, Marco Grossi editor , Giorni d'amore.
