Habry, or The End of Snow, by Helen Degen Cohen
Habry, the name for blue cornflowers that grow along the edges of wheat fields in Poland. Habry, the poem from which the latest collection of poems by Helen Degen Cohen takes its title. Cohen writes about the holocaust that she and her parents survived. Her story is shattering and inspiring – her poems are too.
