What is the London poem about

Erich Fried

Erich Fried was born on May 6, 1921 in Vienna. His first literary attempts as a youth, the German invasion of 1938 suddenly transformed him "from an Austrian high school student into a persecuted Jew." After his father was murdered by the Gestapo, Fried fled to London, from where he fled his mother and 70 other people After the war, Fried worked for numerous newly founded magazines and later commented on German-language programs on the BBC. He gave up this position in 1968 because his political convictions contradicted the editorial position of the BBC. Above all Shakespeare, he made a name for himself. Again and again, with his uncompromising nonconformist attitude, as reflected in his political poetry, he got into violent arguments with the conservative establishment of the old FRG. At the end of his life he was awarded the Bremen Literature Prize , the Österreichi The German State Prize and the Georg Büchner Prize. Erich Fried died after a long and serious illness on November 22, 1988 and was buried in Kensal Green Cemetery in London.
