by Jr., Richard N. Lutjens,

Between 1941 and 1945, thousands of German Jews, in fear for their lives, made the choice to flee their impending deportations and live submerged in the shadows of the Nazi capital. Drawing on a wealth of archival evidence and interviews with survivors, this book reconstructs the daily lives of Jews who stayed in Berlin during the war years.

Trump “Holocaust” Resistance 2019: Oregon Schools Required to Teach Concept of Genocide

by Dave Masko

Trump “Holocaust” Resistance 2019, by Dave Masko. Donald Trump invites white nationalists, anti-Semites and modern-day Nazis into his inner circle; while “the Donald” and his evil band of racists spread neo-Nazi rhetoric at every turn; thus creating the highway of hate across America in 2019, say deeply concerned seniors here out West. To help remedy this dire situation of white nationalist hate, students in Oregon’s public schools will soon learn what’s behind Trump’s immigrant genocide actions now that Gov. Kate Brown (D) has signed a bill May 30, 2019 requiring all public schools teach about the Holocaust; the evil that men do.

Dissecting the Criminal Corpse: Staging Post-Execution Punishment in Early Modern England (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Elizabeth T. Hurren

Those convicted of homicide were hanged on the public gallows before being dissected under the Murder Act in Georgian England. Yet, from 1752, whether criminals actually died on the hanging tree or in the dissection room remained a medical mystery in early modern society. Dissecting the Criminal Corpse takes issue with the historical cliché of corpses dangling from the hangman’s rope in crime studies. Some convicted murderers did survive execution in early modern England. Establishing medical death in the heart-lungs-brain was a physical enigma. Criminals had large bull-necks, strong willpowers, and hearty survival instincts. Extreme hypothermia often disguised coma in a prisoner hanged in the winter cold. The youngest and fittest were capable of reviving on the dissection table. Many d...

The True Tale Of Charlie Plant: A Historical Biography

by Jane Sherwood

Comment by Kev Reynolds a travel writer and lecturer with over 40 published books too his name; all available on Amazon.I took Charlie Plant to Lyme, and spent several hours stretched out with him on a large sofa while rain beat against the windows like shotgun pellets, and was quickly absorbed into the lives of Janes ancestor. And what lives they led!  What roller-coaster existences some of them endured. The (rare) good times and the (far more often) grim times. All came over in such a personal way that I found the reading experience at times uplifting, at times deeply melancholic. Jane has a way of drawing her reader into the period she describes with a rare intensity. So much so that I was relieved to finish the book. That is not a criticism. In fact it is a tribute to the power of the...

Germany On Their Minds: German Jewish Refugees in the United States and Their Relationships with Germany, 1938–1988 (Studies in German History Book 25)

by Anne C. Schenderlein

Throughout the 1930s and early 1940s, approximately ninety thousand German Jews fled their homeland and settled in the United States, prior to that nation closing its borders to Jewish refugees. And even though many of them wanted little to do with Germany, the circumstances of the Second World War and the postwar era meant that engagement of some kind was unavoidable—whether direct or indirect, initiated within the community itself or by political actors and the broader German public. This book carefully traces these entangled histories on both sides of the Atlantic, demonstrating the remarkable extent to which German Jews and their former fellow citizens helped to shape developments from the Allied war effort to the course of West German democratization....

Entangled Entertainers: Jews and Popular Culture in Fin-de-Siècle Vienna (Austrian and Habsburg Studies Book 24)

by Klaus Hödl

Viennese popular culture at the turn of the twentieth century was the product of the city’s Jewish and non-Jewish residents alike. While these two communities interacted in a variety of ways to their mutual benefit, Jewish culture was also inevitably shaped by the city’s persistent bouts of antisemitism. This fascinating study explores how Jewish artists, performers, and impresarios reacted to prejudice, showing how they articulated identity through performative engagement rather than anchoring it in origin and descent. In this way, they attempted to transcend a racialized identity even as they indelibly inscribed their Jewish existence into the cultural history of the era....

The Early Life of Miss Anne Lister and the Curious Tale of Miss Eliza Raine

by Patricia L Hughes

Two young girls pledge undying love, marry each other secretly and promise to live together when they reach the age of twenty-one - but nothing works out as planned. This tale of Georgian England is from real diaries and letters revealing two women whose circumstances changed beyond belief. If you're looking for the sedate world of Jane Austen you won't find it here. This is the wild world of nineteenth century northern England made famous by the Bronte sisters who lived nearby, and based their characters on these real people. Eliza Raine was almost certainly the model for Mrs Rochester in Charlotte Bronte's 'Jane Eyre', while Anne Lister was depicted as 'Shirley' by Anne Bronte. Anne Lister was born in 1791 and started life as the eldest daughter of a poor branch of a landed family. Her d...

by Izaak Sturm

This autobiography is a compelling tale of an individual who survived the full brunt of the Shoah as a teenager, from the first day of the war in the small town of Dembitz in 1939 to liberation in Bergen Belsen in 1945.

Remembering and Disremembering the Dead: Posthumous Punishment, Harm and Redemption over Time (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Floris Tomasini

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licence. This book is a multidisciplinary work that investigates the notion of posthumous harm over time. The question what is and when is death, affects how we understand the possibility of posthumous harm and redemption. Whilst it is impossible to hurt the dead, it is possible to harm the wishes, beliefs and memories of persons that once lived. In this way, this book highlights the vulnerability of the dead, and makes connections to a historical oeuvre, to add critical value to similar concepts in history that are overlooked by most philosophers. There is a long historical view of case studies that illustrate the conceptual character of posthumous punishment; that is, dissection and gibbetting of the criminal corpse after the Murder Act (1752),...

Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Mortality and its Timings: When is Death? (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Shane McCorristine

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This volume provides a series of illuminating perspectives on the timings of death, through in-depth studies of Shakespearean tragedy, criminal execution, embalming practices, fears of premature burial, rumours of Adolf Hitler’s survival, and the legal concept of brain death. In doing so, it explores a number of questions, including: how do we know if someone is dead or not? What do people experience at the moment when they die? Is death simply a biological event that comes about in temporal stages of decomposition, or is it a social event defined through cultures, practices, and commemorations? In other words, when exactly is death? Taken together, these contributions explore how death emerges in a series of stages that are uncertain, p...

The Angevins and the Charter 1154-1216

by S.M. Toyne

This series of English History Source Books is intended for use with any ordinary textbook of English History. Experience has conclusively shown that such apparatus is a valuable—nay, an indispensable—adjunct to the history lesson. It is capable of two main uses: either by way of lively illustration at the close of a lesson, or by way of inference-drawing, before the textbook is read, at the beginning of the lesson. The kind of problems and exercises that may be based on the documents are legion, and are admirably illustrated in a History of England for Schools, Part I., by Keatinge and Frazer, pp. 377-381. However, we have no wish to prescribe for the teacher the manner in which he shall exercise his craft, but simply to provide him and his pupils with materials hitherto not readily ...

My Soul is Filled With Joy: A Holocaust Story

by Karen Treiger

This Bronze Medal Winning book (Independent Publishers Book Award in the category of World History) tells the story of Sam and Esther Goldberg who met in the Polish forest – just outside of the Treblinka Death Camp. It was August 3, 1943, just one day after Sam escaped the Camp during a prisoner uprising. With 870,000 murdered at Treblinka, Sam was one of approximately 65 to survive and live until the end of the war.

They met and after hearing of the prisoner revolt, she took him to the Righteous Gentiles who, at danger to themselves, hid them in their barn for three days while the Nazis, Ukrainians and Poles scoured the area. Deciding to stay and hide with Esther, they ...

South Texas Drag

by Tony Molina

Take a trip through the South Texas terrain through the eyes of drug runner, Toño Garcia. His distinctive South Texas slang adds a unique charm to this dark story, but the appeal and originality doesn't stop there. This guy knows more about style than Carrie Bradshaw, which adds massive flavor and a whole new twist to a tale about "crime as a way of life" in South Texas.Toño sets the mood of every scene by describing the sagebrush and cactuses, the 100-degree heat, the dusty roads, and winding rivers. He sets the mood, too, cluing us into memories, his history. These tales--from the time he had to smuggle prize-winning horse jizz across the border, to the 55-gallon tanks that serve as human caskets for his "colleagues" the Bass brothers when drug deals go wrong--come to...

The Facebook Chronicles: Prophesies, Rants, Rages and Wisdom From The Obama Years

by Dr. Rayna Gangi

I came onto the internet a novice and got involved with social media in an effort to stay connected to the kids in my life. I had to learn the hard way that not everything on the internet is true, much is plagiarized, and a lot can just disappear at a moment’s notice. I was never put in Facebook Prison, but I know many who were. Most of them were just posting or reposting articles that were not favorable to Obama or Hillary. I learned what my purpose was and I came to Facebook every day to fulfill that purpose. Do I understand SnapChat or the power of Instagram or how to market via Pinterest? No. Do I believe everyone should have an interest in politics? In some ways, yes. What our government does is supposed to be what the people want, not what the politicians want, so we have an obliga...

The Fighting Cheyennes

by George Bird Grinnell

"This book deals with the wars of the Cheyennes. A fighting and a fearless people. When their struggles with the white men began, some of their older and wiser men strove earnestly to preserve peace, but their efforts failed. During these first wars between the whites and the Cheyennes, the United States Government was struggling for its very life. Its attention was concentrated on the war between the North and the South, and the movements of a few Indians on the thinly settled frontier attracted little notice. As more and more people pushed into the West, there was more and more fighting with Indians, until in 1878-9 it ceased — so far as the Cheyennes were concerned.Since the Indians could not write, the history of their wars has been set down by their enemies, and the story has been ...

Gender and Genre in the Folklore of Middle India (Myth and Poetics)

by Joyce Burkhalter Flueckiger

In Gender and Genre in the Folklore of Middle India, Joyce Burkhalter Flueckiger analyzes six representative Indian folklore genres from a single regional repertoire to show the influence of their intertextual relations on the composition and interpretation of artistic performance. Placing special emphasis on women’s rituals, she looks at the relationship between the framework and organization of indigenous genres and the reception of folklore performance. The regional repertoire under examination presents a strikingly female-centered world. Female performers and characters are active, articulate, and frequently challenge or defy expectations of gender. Men also confound traditional gender roles. Flueckiger includes the translations of two full performance texts of narratives sung by fem...

There’s a view in American politics, as in religion, that some are set on believing certain things, not so much from weight of evidence, but from mere emotional and mental set points. After all, most Americans believe Trump is totally corrupt with ‘the Donald’s own peculiar mixture of evil that is mostly supported by the Republican while male upper crust who think they are better than people of color.They believe Donald Trump’s lies, and that’s all they are about.

And the people of the world don’t make it any easier. I will be updating this periodically. This is Edition 1. The next will be Edition 2, and so on. I’ve discovered much more than is included in this Edition, and always make new discoveries. If you decide against reading it, to avoid the reality of what this world is about, you’re avoiding a lot of evidence, that will prove I’m correct. What I’ve found is nothing like the evidence you’ve seen elsewhere. For one, there aren’t very many people ...
