Today's Poetry Poster

One of three posters to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day 2015, with its theme of 'remembering'. Stephen Scobie's poem talks about the way in which history and memory seem fragile, but then conjures up some of the lasting monuments that do the job of remembering - including the Deportation Memorial in Paris, marking the people deported from France to concentration camps during the Second World War.
