"Black Crows Invaded Our Country" by Hunter Madsen

"Black Crows Invaded Our Country"

The image title recalls a story recounted by a German Jewish holocaust survivor. When she was in second grade, her teacher - "a very tall man, his hair was concretely plastered smooth" - warned the class that "black crows invaded our country long ago, and he pointed right at me."  The survivor's voice tape became material for a haunting chamber piece by Steve Reich, titled Different Trains.
