Denise David's collection of poems, Against Forgetting, grew out of research and interviews done for a project about the war brides of World War II. The stories revealed by the characters in these poems speak of personal experiences but point to a universal significance through the various themes explored: the moral ambiguity of separating children from parents; the difficulties faced by immigrants; the importance of small acts of humanity in the midst of devastation; and the often unseen importance of women's lives, including the near invisibility of war brides. David's poems show us a grim past that we should not ever forget as well as compassionate and forgiving qualities of humanity that give us hope.
