A Poem About Home

By Ukrainian Poet Serhiy Zhadan

What would you take?

Every day, behind the headlines, people caught up in the war in Ukraine face impossible choices. Stay or go. Fight or flee. Take or leave.

Two Ukrainian artists – poet Serhiy Zhadan and actor Ivantiy Novak – give voice to these experiences, the homes people have left and the memories they carry.

For those who have stayed, they now face the looming winter. As temperatures begin to freeze and snow begins to fall, how will they keep warm? How will they continue to find comfort in the home they once loved?
