Reflections on Kaddish
creating kaddish
my grandmother's voice
mania and blima
to sanctify
helmet's library
memory in service of life
splinter in your eye
portrait of marek
believing six million
so where are you?

About Kaddish  •  Reflections on Kaddish

from Call Me André
in The Last Address
by Leslie Starobin

"André Peulevey" was the nom-de-guerre of this decorated French Resistance leader, who was captured and sent to a concentration camp, with his real identity as a German-born Jew (Joseph Scheinmann) never discovered by his captors. His camp uniform was bequeathed to his Parisian-born son, Michel, whose father's liberation on April 26, 1945, was described in a memoir André dictated years later: "'The Americans are here!' ... André ran to the gate and threw his arms around the first GI; this one took off 'his' helmet and beautiful long hair fell onto 'his' shoulders. The first 'man' in was a woman photojournalist, Lee Miller. The surprise passed. I hugged her again." The pencil portrait was apparently drawn by a fellow prisoner on September 1, 1944.
