Today I am a lonely old man, without family, without friends, without a roof over my head. I talk to myself, I am afraid of everything. I am overcome with fear when I have to meet new people. I fear that what I have seen is marked on my face. When mirroring myself in a stream or pool of water, the appearance of my face is disfigured. Do I look like a human being? No, a hundred times no. Bearded, disheveled, sloppy, broken... I who witnessed the annihilation of three generations must live for the future. Let the world take cognizance of the German crimes and barbarism that the generations to come may know and remember...

Since Israel’s 1967 war, more than 60,000 Jewish-Americans have settled in the occupied territories, transforming politics and sometimes committing shocking acts of terrorism. Yet little is known about why they chose to live at the center of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Sara Yael Hirschhorn unsettles stereotypes about these liberal idealists.

<p>"In 1945 the war ended. The Germans surrendered, and the ghetto was liberated. Out of over a quarter of a million people, about 800 walked out of the ghetto. Of those who survived, only twelve were children. I was one of the twelve." For more than fifty years after the war, Syvia, like many Holocaust survivors, did not talk about her experiences in the Lodz ghetto in Poland. She buried her past in order to move forward. But finally she decided it was time to share her story, and so she told it to her niece, who has re-told it here using free verse inspired by her aunt. This is the true story of Syvia Perlmutter—a story of courage, heartbreak, and finally survival despite the terrible circumstances in which she grew up. A timeline, historical notes, and an author's note are included.</p>

<h2>“Simply nothing has escaped his eagle eye; even the most hidden remarks on a problem have been detected by him and entered in his book.” Carl Clemen, <em>The Biblical World</em></h2><br /><br />Emil Schürer’s work is the authoritative study of Jewish history during classical times.<br /><br />This work does not just cover the lifetime of Jesus, but instead it takes the reader from 175 B.C. through to the end of the rebellion under Hadrian in 135 A. D.<br /><br />Schürer, in the first two volumes of his work, uncovers the political leaders of the Jewish people during this period as they struggled for freedom under the threat and oppression of the Roman Empire.<br /><br />Through volumes three and four Schürer exposes the cultural and religious underpinnings of the Jewish people over these centuries: how the temple of Jerusalem functioned, how they related to the Hellenistic world that surrounded them, how their leaders created laws and ruled while remaining under Roman jurisdiction, as well as theological debates that were being made at this time.<br /><br />Schürer also examines not just the Jewish society centred around Jerusalem, but also those spread further afield across Asia and the Mediterranean.<br /><br />“Dr. Schürer has produced a work which has no parallel … a perfect and indispensable work.” Dr. Adolf Harnack<br /><br />Emil Schürer was a German theologian, made famous for his study of the Jewish people during the time of Jesus Christ. He studied in Erlangen, Berlin and Heidelberg, and took his doctorate in Leipzig. <em> A History of the Jewish People in the Time of Jesus Christ</em> was first published in 1891 and Schürer died in 1910.

This Inferno was thronged by millions, many of whom were babies and little children, mothers and young women who had hoped to become mothers. It was thronged with people who deserved their fates because they were men in the sense that God meant them to be. They were in Inferno because they were strong men and brave, the real heroes of our days. They were doomed because the Nazi super-race set up a different scale of values which regarded heroism as the greatest of sins and considered depravity the greatest of virtues.
