Author Oskar Klausenstock’s life has been marked with experiences that have been turbulent, unsteady, and, in some cases, outright violent. He was an only child who was often shifted from parent to parent and home to home, including those of his grandparents. He lived in both small towns and cities, with limited educational opportunities. He endured the brutality of World War II and was incarcerated in multiple Nazi concentration camps; at the war’s end, he came to the painful realization that he was the only member of his family still living.
In this collection of poetry, he recalls the events and emotions of his life, from arriving in the United States and seeing the Statue of Liberty for the first time to standing beneath a wedding canopy and whispering, “I do.” His verses explore his joy of finally being accepted in America and his pride at graduating from several universities, earning the title of doctor of medicine. He considers the happiness that a splendid family bestows. He includes poems of rapture, bliss, sorrow, despair, hope, and laughter.
Reflecting the memories and dreams of a life well lived; this collection shares the poetic stories of one man’s life.
