I Am Cyrus: Harry S. Truman and the Rebirth of Israel

by Craig von Buseck

Improbable, if not impossible. How could a people who’d been scattered for two millennia reestablish a homeland on their ancient soil?Against all odds, an irresistible desire to return grew in courageous Jewish men and women who set out to rebuild their decimated homeland.Help came first through Great Britain’s pledge to restore Palestine to the Jews. Britain, however, nearly reneged on that promise just as the Jews faced the Nazi Holocaust.Near the end of WWII, an unlikely man rose to the presidency of the United States. Harry S. Truman, a farmer and failed business owner, would decide not only the fate of Jewish survivors but also the future of their homeland.As a vote approached in the fledgling United Nations, pressure mounted. Truman slammed the White House doors shut to all who w...

The conflict and its aftershocks continue to influence the Philippines and the wider region to this day, leaving a legacy of governance, society, and economic organization.

by Captivating History

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Hellenistic Age, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!The alienation of the people from the government and society itself can be seen as a result of the Hellenistic transformation. It can also be seen within the art of the period. Scholars, artists, and philosophers began rejecting the collective ideals, and instead, they focused on the cult of the individual. Sculptures were no longer that of gods and ideals but of individuals, and philosophers cultivated the ideas of individual happiness and pleasure. Religious cults, such as the cult of Isis, formed around the same concepts, claiming to offer the secret of immortality and prosperity to those who sought it for themselves.The Hellenistic age brought a great deal of change in ...

ROOTS AND WINGS: A COLLECTION OF FAMILY STORIES (A Pictorial Family History Book 1)

by JOHN CHARLES GUNZBURG

When I was young… a long time ago in a different era to now…my friends used to keep scrapbooks. I never did. I am not sure why. Perhaps I was too shy. Perhaps I did not think that I had all that much to record. As I have grown older, I have realized that I have many wonderful memories to record, and many family stories. Family stories are the essence of family life. Together with photos, they transmit the core of family life from one generation to the next. With the wonder of the internet, I have been able to uncover images of events and places as they were before I was born, and during my life. I have also been able to gather a lot of information about my family that I was not able to get before, and so put together a reticulum of family structure. Each photo represents a moment in my...

Americans Caught in Trump’s Racist Web: Republicans Mobilizing Racial Hate 2019

by Dave Masko

Americans Caught in Trump’s Racist Web, by Dave Masko. Over the coming decade, the most vital American resource in need of protection is likely to be our own personal freedoms including our mental health as evil doers like Donald Trump attempt to destroy our values and democracy, says retired American history professor Thomas T. Shapton who, at age 83, thinks “I would never see a president betray what so many have fought and died for. We spend so much time looking down at those evil Trump tweets that we’ve forgotten he’s a hateful old bastard who hates for his weird enjoyment.” Professor Shapton then explained to fellow “Impeach Trump” protesters (*at Reed College in Portland, Oregon, July 14, 2019) how Republicans “perverts the truth because American racists like to mai...

The Mystery of the Anasazi Civilization: Surprising Evidence of Spiritual and Astronomical Knowledge of the Mysterious Anasazi’s Civilization of the Remote American Canyons

by Osmanagich Ph.D., Sam

The surface of the Earth over the last two million years provides evidence of the occurrence of eighteen ice ages each lasting about a hundred thousand years. Between them there were short periods of warming, which lasted no more than twelve thousand years. Those were the times when new life cycles would begin. Life blossomed, the planet turned green, and the sounds of various living beings could be heard most everywhere. We are now at the end of one such temporary warm period which began 11,500 years ago. We are rapidly approaching another ice age. Climate changes will intensify, cold regions will become even colder, warm regions even warmer. Another cycle will come to an end. The dominant civilization will come to an end and it will take many generations before another cycle starts over ...

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...
