Interview with Les Campbell

Do you regret having read it?


No, I don't. I think the response was raw, the child had very little knowledge of the whole, total picture of Jews and history of Jews. In fact, she had been taught most of her life by Jewish teachers who had taught her about the Holocaust, who had taught her about injustices to the Jewish people, and she was just finding it unusually strange that now some of these Jewish people were performing injustices to her people. And that was what she was saying in the poem.
