Filling in the Pieces: A Survival Story of the Holocaust

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. The book first provides a nostalgic of Izaak's prewar life and goes on to detail how his family and community were gradually torn asunder by the Nazi occupation.

by Karen Treiger

The Thirteenth Century

by James Walsh

The object of the book is to interpret, in terms that will be readily intelligible to this generation, the life and concerns of the people of a century who, to the author's mind, have done more for human progress than those of any like period in human history. There are few whose eyes are now holden as they used to be, as to the surpassing place in the history of culture of the last three centuries of the Middle Ages. Personally the author is convinced, however, that only a beginning of proper appreciation has come as yet, and he feels that the solution of many problems that are vexing the modern world, especially in the social order, are to be found in these much misunderstood ages, and above all in that culmination of medieval progress the period from 1200 to 1300......

He smiled. We got drunk.We flirted. We hooked up. I left early the next morning without saying goodbye. It was only meant to be a one night stand. I didn’t want the awkward morning after moment. Not at all.

Then I went home for the weekend. And he was there. Sitting on the couch chatting to my dad. Turns out he was more than just a stranger. Turns out that my one night stand was about to cause a whole heap of trouble. Turns out that it never just stops with one night.

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 ...

Collection of Secrets and Mysteries of the Ancient World: Travels on the history of mankind

It would seem that for modern science with its progressive technologies there should be no secrets. However, despite all the achievements, there are still many "white spots" in the history of the ancient world.Huge pyramids, cities buried under the stratum of the earth, cities lying at the bottom of the ocean, ancient technologies, tremendous mind and imagination of modern people - all this is the history of the Earth unknown to us. There was a time when other civilizations existed on Earth and they were different from us. Our civilization for several hundred years has formed a coherent scientific theory about the history of our planet. Archaeological finds that do not fit into the dogmas of this theory are either silenced or closed with the “secret” stamp. But, these finds every year ...

Wreck of the Whale Ship Essex - Illustrated - NARRATIVE OF THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY AND DISTRESSING SHIPWRECK OF THE WHALE-SHIP ESSEX: Original News Stories of Whale Attacks & Cannibals

by Owen Chase

In one of the most spellbinding accounts of men who go down to the sea in ships, the modern reader is given a seat in the whale boat of Owen Chase as he and his fellow crew and their Captain make way in three boats after the wreckage of the Whaleship Essex.
The account of how the Essex was wrecked inspired the infamous book Moby Dick and countless movies, including the newest, In the Heart of the Sea.
The perils of sea, storms, nefarious intent of evil men and fate combined to bring an end to a long whaling voyage – typically hard and grueling enough without suffering an attack by a furious and vengeful sperm whale.
The story, told in a first-person narrative by Owen Chase, the first mate of the Essex, was first published in 1821 and served to inspire Herman Melville ...

Speaking the Unspeakable in Postwar Germany: Toward a Public Discourse on the Holocaust (Signale: Modern German Letters, Cultures, and Thought)

by Sonja Boos

Speaking the Unspeakable in Postwar Germany is an interdisciplinary study of a diverse set of public speeches given by major literary and cultural figures in the 1950s and 1960s. Through close readings of canonical speeches by Hannah Arendt, Theodor W. Adorno, Ingeborg Bachmann, Martin Buber, Paul Celan, Uwe Johnson, Peter Szondi, and Peter Weiss, Sonja Boos demonstrates that these speakers both facilitated and subverted the construction of a public discourse about the Holocaust in postwar West Germany. The author’s analysis of original audio recordings of the speech events (several of which will be available on a companion website) improves our understanding of the spoken, performative dimension of public speeches. Speaking the Unspeakable in Postwar Germany emphasizes the social constr...

Psychiatry and Decolonisation in Uganda (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Yolana Pringle

This open access book investigates psychiatry in Uganda during the years of decolonisation. It examines the challenges facing a new generation of psychiatrists as they took over responsibility for psychiatry at the end of empire, and explores the ways psychiatric practices were tied to shifting political and development priorities, periods of instability, and a broader context of transnational and international exchange. At its heart is a question that has concerned psychiatrists globally since the mid-twentieth century: how to bridge the social and cultural gap between psychiatry and its patients? Bringing together archival research with oral histories, Yolana Pringle traces how this question came to dominate both national and international discussions on mental health care reform, includ...

Abi of Cyrene

by Mary Lou Cheatham

In the Bible this character has no name, but we know who she is. In the last chapter of Romans, the Apostle Paul sends her a greeting because he loves her like his own mother. Simon, her husband, is the last person who performs an act of kindness for Christ before the crucifixion. Her two sons, Alexander and Rufus, appear to be leaders in the early church. It seems she spends her later years in Antioch, home of the first people called Christians.

History has remained silent about this astonishing woman. Abi of Cyrene, an imaginative novel about Simon’s wife, uncovers her life as it might have been.

Before moving to Cyrene, she is a young Nubian archer, living near the Nile in the ancient land of Nobatia. The name Abi, meaning her father, alludes to her great...

The Protocols: Part II. The War in Europe Begins

by Rob Carr

The second book in the The Protocols Trilogy chronicles the time beginning with the invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939, and concludes on June 21, 1941, the day before the German invasion of the Soviet Union. Like all the books in the series, The War In Europe Begins tells the story through excerpts taken from news and feature articles, radio and film transcripts, speeches, memoirs, diaries and other historical documents recorded on the day, or near the day, the events to which they refer occurred. The entries are woven into a narrative of voices, both familiar and obscure, offering a fresh perspective on this critical historical period.

I Slept in Hitler's Bed: A Memoir by Jay Balter

by Jay Balter

Jay Balter did not have an easy life growing up in mid-20th century Brooklyn. His father, known to his mother only as “that son of a bitch” was many things—a music publisher who gambled away the entire family fortune he made on Broadway, a philander, a gangster, a deadbeat dad—but mostly, he was absent. Jay comes of age in the Orthodox Jewish community of Crown Heights with his mentally ill twin sister, his angry older brother, and his beloved mother, an early feminist who will do anything to support her family. In 1958, at 18 years old, he enters the US Army. During his basic training in Georgia, Jay’s anger over both American racism and the European Holocaust comes to the surface, and he vows, “I was prepared to teach those rebels a lesson. I was not prepared to roll over and...

Archivist on a Bicycle: Jiří Fiedler

by Ruth Ellen Gruber

Archivist on a Bicycle is a tribute to Jiří Fiedler, a Czech Protestant, who for most of his life documented extinct Bohemian and Moravian Jews at great danger to himself. His day job was as a children’s book editor; his passion was mapping and archiving the sites of Jewish life in the Czech lands. From the 1970s through 2014, he was an invaluable source for scholars, genealogists, museum curators — anyone in the world interested in Czech Jews. Jiří rarely talked about what he called his “strange hobby,” but viewed it as a decent person’s response to Nazism and Communism. After the Velvet Revolution, he published Jewish Sights in Bohemia and Moravia and more than one hundred scholarly articles and reviews. His electronic encyclopedia of Jewish communities at the Jewish Museum...

A JOURNEY TO THE PAST: Ebers Papyrus (THOROUGH SCIENTIFIC INVENTION Book 1)

by SOURAV DAS

This book will take you on a tour of what I consider to be the most interesting of all human endeavors: science. Now, of course, I am well aware that many people (perhaps even you) do not think science is interesting. Nevertheless, I do believe that most people’s dislike of science comes from a bad curriculum and/or bad teachers, not the subject itself. Hopefully, as you go through this book, you will see why I find science so incredibly interesting, and if nothing else, you will at least develop an appreciation for this fascinating field of study.So what is science, anyway? Well, the word “science” comes from the Latin word “scientia” (sye en’ tee uh), which means “to have knowledge.” It can be generally defined as follows:Science – An endeavor dedicated to the accumulat...

Mysticism in Nepal and Tibet, The Himalayan Journals of M.G. Hawking: August 2019 Edition Exploratory Anthology

by M.G. Hawking

New Release There has long been a deep desire felt by scholars, both past and present, to recover the silent secrets of the ancient cultures of Tibet and Nepal, to trace the background of their prehistoric spiritual development as derived from ever earlier cultures, and then to discover whatever modern manifestations might still exist in the remote margins of that mysterious world. This desire has exerted a powerful pull on the imaginations of Westerners—historians, philologists, Tibetologists, philosophers, physicists, and psi researchers alike.Composed from the journals of explorer M.G. Hawking’s five years in remote areas of the Himalayas, this book transports the reader into regions of our planet that in all history only a handful of people have experienced, a journey that leads t...
