Creators & ContributorsBoraks-Nemetz, Lillian (author)
Summary"Jagna Boraks grew up in the Warsaw Ghetto, in a state of deprivation and fear that few children in Canada know. Her experience as a young child has evaporated into a long silence, but memories return to her of those years. Garden of Steel was written as she came into awareness of her childhood experience and the process of healing began. Although she has lived in Canada for many years, Jagna Boraks writes from a peculiarly Eastern European perspective... This is a rare book of poems, a testament written out of the blood and imbued with the life force: a poetry of victory rather than victimization, a poetry of healing." —Back cover
