Teresa Lazzaro – TWENTY BUTTERFLIES AND A NEW SPRING
On 20 April 1945 twenty Jewish children who had been deported and tortured with useless medical experiments are hung in the basement of the school in Bullenhuser Damm to eliminate every trace. This is the topic of the collection of poems, Twenty butterflies and a new spring. The author Teresa Lazzaro gives voice to the twenty children in a book published by Experiences. The crime was unknown to the world for decades.
It is a lyrical investigation on mankind, which deals with the perpetrators and the victims while considering why becomes a must. Delicate and painful are Teresa Lazzaro’s pages. She records voices, witnesses and feelings while evoking one by one the twenty lives that receive that motherly hug taken away by history.
