Ein Zeugnis von unglaublichem Mut Was vermag ein einzelner Mensch gegen die Grauen einer ganzen Epoche auszurichten? Eine Menge, wie die wahre Geschichte Irena Sendlers zeigt: Warschau, 1942. Als Sozialarbeiterin hat die junge Polin Zugang zum hermetisch abgeriegelten Ghetto. Was niemand weiß: Sie geht von Tür zu Tür, um verzweifelten Eltern ihre Hilfe anzubieten und ihre Kinder vor der Deportation und dem sicheren Tod zu retten. Unter abenteuerlichsten Umständen schmuggelt Irena nach und nach über 2500 Kinder aus dem Ghetto – in Säcken, Kisten und Särgen, mit Schlafmitteln betäubt, durch Keller und Abwasserkanäle. Mit gefälschten Papieren gibt sie den Kindern eine neue Identität und verschafft ihnen in polnischen Familien, bei Freunden, in Waisenhäusern und Klöstern ein neues Zuhause. Die Namen der geretteten Kinder notiert sie und vergräbt die Liste unter einem Apfelbaum. Selbst als die Gestapo sie fasst und foltert, gibt sie ihr Geheimnis nicht preis und überlebt wie durch ein Wunder. Die Geschichte einer fast vergessenen Heldin – neu erzählt auf der Gundlange jahrelanger Recherchen und Interviews mit Überlebenden. Zutiefst berührend, spannend wie ein Roman und zugleich unglaublich inspirierend.

This powerful work tells the story of Anne Skorecki Levy, the Holocaust survivor who transformed the horrors of her childhood into a passionate mission to defeat the political menace of reputed neo-Nazi and Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. The first book to connect the prewar and wartime experiences of Jewish survivors to the lives they subsequently made for themselves in the United States, Troubled Memoryis also a dramatic testament to how the experiences of survivors as new Americans spurred their willingness to bear witness. Perhaps the only family to survive the liquidation of the Warsaw Ghetto as a group, the Skoreckis evaded deportation to Treblinka, by posing as Aryans and ultimately made their way to New Orleans, where they became part of a vibrant Jewish community. Lawrence Powell traces the family's dramatic odyssey and explores the events that eventually triggered Anne Skorecki Levy's brave decision to honor the suffering of the past by confronting the recurring specter of racist hatred. Breaking decades of silence, she played a direct role in the unmasking and defeat of Duke during his 1991 campaign for the governorship of Louisiana.

A guide to Nebraska, concerns common people and the Great Plains. The argument of this book is that, in the colliding of cultures in the plains, many hoops were fractures-those of the Indian cultures, of the Mexican and Southwestern peoples, and of the European immigrant groups who came after 1860. The various essays and the introduction argue that the vision of these people as well as that of thousands of less well known community builders, artists, workers and musicians constitute the humane past of our various ethnic groups; these visions may also constitute our hope for a future in a period of overcentralization, short fossil fuels, and loss of identity.
