Zofia Abramowicz was Polish and Catholic, but was still rounded up and imprisoned at Auschwitz during World War II.

During that time, Zofia wrote poetry - really strange, scary, beautiful poetry. She then buried it in jars in the camp.

After the war, the jars were dug up and returned to her. Sean Cole talks to the woman who is the keeper of these poems, Cherie Braun.
