Some of the most haunting poems of the First World War were written by Jews. In this special event for Jewish Book Week London secondary school students performed selected works by Siegfried Sassoon and Isaac Rosenberg - one a gentleman officer who survived to be celebrated in his lifetime, the other a poor soldier whose work was largely neglected after his death on the Western Front in 1918.
