3 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Cassells is a passionate poet whose poems touch the core of human connection through which can flow union with the infinite. Highly recommended."--Library Journal Cyrus Cassells' fifth book commemorates the blazing integrity of young people caught in the vise of World War II. In its journey through the "anti-miracle" of Europe's embattled past, The Crossed-Out Swastika follows the lives of historical and semi-fictional characters to unearth and amplify moments of almost impossible music, bravery, beauty, and redemption, illuminating the human spirit against unspeakable tyranny. Poet, from cellar to cellar, I remember I held onto, of all things, a picture book about a magical goat, inscribed by my witty father: This storybook belongs to Mademoiselle Sabinethe way Paris once belonged to Marie Antoinette-Somehow having that book helped me to endure. Cyrus Cassells grew up in the Mojave Desert. He graduated from Stanford University and has worked as a translator, film critic, and actor; he currently teaches poetry in the MFA program at Texas State University-San Marcos. He lives in Austin, Texas"--
