The Children�s Crusade is a long narrative poem written by the famous German playwright Bertolt Brecht. The story recounts the exodus of a group of young Germans, Poles and Jews as they encounter one another in a ruined village in Poland after fleeing the war in 1939.
The vital force of the poem is still vibrant. Carme Sol� has contributed some splendid illustrations that reflect the atmosphere of the horror of war and its denunciation.
