      Prisoner Moon A young German soldier in a Michigan POW camp finds friends and enemies on both sides of the barbed wire Over 400,000 German prisoners of war have been brought to America during World War II. Young Edwin Horst is one of them. Captured in France after D-Day, he finds himself in a Michigan POW camp, threatened by hard-line Nazi prisoners, and gets unexpected help from the Grudens, a local German-American family. Doris Calloway, escaping her past, has come north from Kentucky to work in the nearby bomber factory. She rooms with the Grudens and falls in love with the troubled oldest son, Hans, back home from fighting the Japanese in the Pacific. Inside the camp Sam Demsky, as part of a secret government program, tries to teach the prisoners about democracy and ends up involved with the headstrong Gruden daughter, Hildy. Their lives intertwine inside and outside the barbed wire, with friends and lovers betrayed and reconciled.

        I interviewed my grandfather about his time overseas during World War II. My grandfather passed away almost a month after I was able to interview him and I am so glad I got to hear his stories before he left us. He shared a very inspirational story that made me thankful for all that our groups do for us.

            On Nov. 9, 1944, the representatives of 44 nations met at Washington D.C. and established the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration to face the challenge of rebuilding countries that had been devastated by World War II. Mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia assumed the role of Director General in March 1946 and later toured the many UNRRA programs around Rome that were supplying food and medicine to the Italians. At the Villaggo de Fanciullo in Rome he met youngsters who were either orphans or had been separated from their families in the chaos of war.

                COLLATERAL DAMAGE REPORT 'If it is in your power to decide, why do you do it? But if in another's, whom do you find fault with- the atoms or the gods? Either is madness.' Marcus Aurelius, Meditations Let us skip, you and I, through certain half-smelted streets; where time and conscience dissolve like watches, and glass shadows catch the first sun's rays fully on their mistaken faces. (In the tents the orphaned come and go, Cursing poor Michaelangelo.) I am becoming more flesh than bone here, No longer thirsty for what the architects have dropped, No longer hungry for scraps of Oppie's wet dreams. No longer driven to swallow the Rebel flag whole. I could use a quick dousing of napalm here in my soul, there are fires I could never put out; I could use a spill of cluster bombs to clear my head, I have stains that will never wash out. (In the quonset, survivors come and go, jealous of Michaelangelo.) There was talk today between my god and your god, and my god rained down fire upon working-class Sodom- and my god rained down vengeance on industrial Gomorrah- and my god spoke with furious anger, and terrible wisdom- So your little tin god spoke to his people in his little tin voice, and surrendered everything he had ever wanted. (In the new world, poets will come and go, still reeling from Michaelangelo.)

                  • EVERY BODY WAS AFRAID

                    Every Body Was Afraid (2013), includes facial restraints and corrective medical implements inspired by orthodontic headgear (and historical or obsolete psychological treatments). I used spoons, spatulas, pacifiers, candy and other household objects (not all shown here) to create wearable restraints that inhibit speech. Language is distorted as a metaphor for social compliance, communication ruptures, powerlessness, and silencing. The mouth, “the visible sign of intelligence,” is compromised. The text is taken from an interview with my grandmother who described life in her small Mennonite village in Ukraine just prior to Nazi occupation and eventual eviction.
