"I live on a reserve of burdensome memories amassed in dark times. They are the power that excites, provokes, and stimulates my actions." - Herman Taube The work of Herman Taube reveals the inner world of a tormented yet loving soul, a world of deep richness and passion. Looking Back, Going Forward includes recent English translations of poems Taube originally wrote in Polish and Yiddish about his World War II experiences in Poland, Siberia, Uzbekistan, Russia, and Pomerania. It also includes poems dealing with emigration to the United States in 1947, his continuing work as a journalist, and a life that has been dedicated to service in Jewish communities and his expanding family.
