'Velkom to Inklandt' is a collection of poems in which Sophie Herxheimer brings vividly to life the voice of her German Jewish Grent Muzzer, Liesel, whose somewhat abrasive perspektiff she has never been able to forget. Liesel came to live in Britain in 1938, her husband, a doctor, one of many saved by the speedily set up Council for Academic Refugees. Playing on the difficulties of the English lenkvitch and vokebulerry, the poems tell of immigrant's attempts to fit in and make her home in a new country at war with her own.
