A Holocaust Memoir of Love & Resilience: Mama's Survival from Lithuania to America

by Ettie Zilber

With the Nazi occupation of Kovno (Lithuania), her life changed forever. Zlata Santocki Sidrer was Jewish, but she survived the horrors of the Holocaust. Gone was her normal life and her teenage dream of becoming a doctor.

Lovingly compiled from recorded interviews and researched by her eldest daughter, Ettie, this is an account of a remarkably resilient woman who raised herself out of the ashes after unimaginable hardship and sorrow. She found love and happiness where none could be expecte...

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. Esther had been hiding in that patch of forest for a year and was out that morning, looking for mushrooms to eat. 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...

The Genealogy of the Adam'ant

What if everything you believe is a lie? What if Jesus (or what ever god you believe exists) never even existed? What if everyone was damned to eternal torment, before they were even born, without a chance of escape? It’s true, I’ve lived with the reality for more than 20 years. 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 ...

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)

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...
