A Friend’s Poem
To and From the Guillotine” by Clara Leiser

The unfinished poem To and From the Guillotine was written by Clara Leiser, a friend and colleague of Mildred Fish Harnack. Both attended The University of Wisconsin in the early 1920’s.

Later in the 1930’s, Clara traveled a few times to Europe to visit Mildred and her German-born husband, Arvid (whom Mildred had met at the University and later married in 1926). The last time Clara saw Mildred in the U.S. was when Mildred stayed with her in New York in 1937.

Clara received a postcard from Mildred dated January 12, 1939 from London. In it Mildred writes Clara that she had “Better not write but don’t forget me and don’t be angry.”

[View Clara’s explanation of postcard.] The next news she heard told of the execution of Mildred and her husband by Hitler and his war machine on February 16, 1943 and December 22, 1942 respectively.

As a “memorializing salute” to Mildred and her husband, Clara began to work on this epic poem in the mid to late 1940’s. The following images are thumbnail versions of original drafts that exist of the poem. The two images on the left are taken from the original introduction and the first page of the poem.

The two images on the right are taken from earlier, individual ‘draft’ pages of the poem that were sent to UW president, E.B. Fred, during the late 1940’s. A closer inspection, reveals some of the changes and comments that Clara Leiser had made in the process of writing and rewriting this work, which according to her notes on the last page of the poem, was not finished, with the addition of several parts still yet to come.

The unfinished poem, graciously supplied by Anita Leiser, who granted Shareen Blair Brysac permission, is reproduced here as a pdf and attempts to follow, as closely as possible, the layout of the original.
