WWII Movie Tanka

The Monuments Men

retrieved the greatest private art collection

stolen by Hitler and the Nazis

because no war should

eclipse our humanity.


The War of the Buttons   (French)

confirms how closely

our children

mimic our imperfections

master our virtue.


As Far As My Feet Will Carry Me       (So weit die Füße tragen) (German)

speaks to the resolve

of one German POW

his obstacles and setbacks

and how he reclaimed his life.
