|Beyond courage : the untold story of Jewish resistance during the Holocaust |
by Rappaport, Doreen.
Many Jews believed they were being "resettled," not exterminated. Others thought cooperation would save their lives. It didn’t. Still others . . . resisted! Beyond Courage does give you a glimpse of the atrocities of the Holocaust, but Rappaport places a greater focus on survival and the ingenious ways of doing so. This is an excellent read. I had a hard time giving up the library copy. posted Mar 7, 2014 at 1:57PM
|Irena’s jars of secrets |
by Vaughan, Marcia K.
A children’s book about a young woman who helped rescue 2500 children during the Holocaust. I love her caring and the ingenuity of Zegota, the group who helped get the children out of Germany. The "jars" were Irena’s record of the children’s names, so they could be reunited with their parents after the war. posted Feb 7, 2014 at 11:47AM
|What your childhood memories say about you-- and what you can do about it |
by Leman, Kevin
This title intrigued me, but I expected it to peruse it and pass it on. I actually found it quite helpful. Leman emphasizes that memories "with emotion" are the key. I discovered the roots of some of my attitudes and fears. posted Feb 4, 2014 at 3:33PM
