Jill Peláez Baumgaertner is a poet and emerita professor of English at Wheaton College. She wrote her first poem at age 16 after visiting Dachau [concentration camp], and has immersed herself ever since in the literature of the Holocaust. As a scholar, Baumgaertner’s interest in religion and literature keeps pushing her back to the Holocaust.
