SEPTEMBER 1, 1939 by  W.H. Auden

SEPTEMBER 1, 1939 by W.H. Auden

After Adolf Hitler came into power in 1933, Jews began to escape Nazi Europe and Britain was one of the destinations. There were about 70,000 Jewish refugees who were accepted in Britain by the start of World War II on September 1, 1939, and an additional 10,000 people who made it to Britain during the war.

Today, over 75 years later, W.H. Auden's poem September 1, 1939 resonates more than ever. Marking the start of World War ll as Germany marched into Poland, it feels the "waves of anger and fear," foresees the suffering ahead, mourns what may be lost, but defiantly insists, "The lights must never go out/ The music must always play." With "our world in stupor," Auden writes, the need remains "to show an affirming flame."
