MJBW and JQ present the latest in our series of Global Conversations. Join internationally acclaimed author and academic Eva Hoffman and Melbourne poet, writer and book editor Alex Skovron.

Eva has written an important new essay for Jewish Quarterly about the remarkable but almost forgotten Polish Jewish poet Zuzanna Ginczanka (Gincburg), who was murdered by the Nazis in January 1945, aged just 27. The discussion – while focusing on Ginczanka, her life and her poetic legacy – will also explore some broader issues raised by the subject, as well as touching on other aspects of Hoffman’s work and concerns.
