Renewal At The Place of Black Tears

Renewal at The Place of Black Tears by Jerome Kaufman is a visual artist’s photographic interpretation of the Black Tears – a name given to the oil droplets bubbling up everyday since the December 7, 1941 attack from the fuel tanks of the sunken USS Arizona. The book has been a best seller at Pearl Harbor since 2012. It is the first and only Pearl Harbor book focused on renewal and reconciliation – the essential themes of the WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument.  Jerry uses moving words from yesterday and vibrant pictures from today, blended through the healing “lens” renewal and reconciliation to tell the story. Embrace New Beginnings!
