Poetry, Survival, and Human Rights

Nickie Phillips

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9KmR96Fk7M] See POETRY OF RESILIENCE, a film by Academy Award nominated director, Katja Esson.

She highlights six different poets, who individually survived Hiroshima, the Holocaust, China's Cultural Revolution, the Kurdish Genocide in Iraq, the Rwandan Genocide, and the Iranian Revolution. By summoning the creative voice of poetry to tell stories of survival and witness, each reclaims humanity and dignity in the wake of some of history's most dehumanizing circumstances.
