Zofia Abramowicz was Polish and Catholic, but was still rounded up and imprisoned at Auschwitz during World War II. During that time, Zofia wrote poetry - really strange, scary, beautiful poetry.

She then buried it in jars in the camp. After the war, the jars were dug up and returned to her.

Sean Cole talks to the woman who is the keeper of these poems, Cherie Braun.

Hear this interview at The Story's website. Also in this show: Sean talks with Thomas Schultz, who found thousands of paintings in a garage when he was looking at houses on Long Island.

Before coming to North Carolina Public Radio to host The Story, Dick Gordon was host of The Connection, a daily national call-in talk show produced in Boston, from 2001 to 2005. Gordon is well-known in the profession as an experienced, seasoned journalist with an extensive background in both international and domestic reporting. He was a war correspondent and back-up host for the CBC's This Morning, a national current affairs radio program. An award winning journalist, he has also served as a Parliamentary reporter, Moscow correspondent and South Asia correspondent for both radio and television.
