<p><strong>“A remarkable—and singularly chilling—glimpse of human behavior. . .This meticulously researched book...represents a major contribution to the literature of the Holocaust."—<em>Newsweek</em> <br /></strong></p><p><strong>Christopher R. Browning’s shocking account of how a unit of average middle-aged Germans became the cold-blooded murderers of tens of thousands of Jews—now with a new afterword and additional photographs.</strong></p><p><em>Ordinary Men</em> is the true story of Reserve Police Battalion 101 of the German Order Police, which was responsible for mass shootings as well as round-ups of Jewish people for deportation to Nazi death camps in Poland in 1942. Browning argues that most of the men of RPB 101 were not fanatical Nazis but, rather, ordinary middle-aged, working-class men who committed these atrocities out of a mixture of motives, including the group dynamics of conformity, deference to authority, role adaptation, and the altering of moral norms to justify their actions. Very quickly three groups emerged within the battalion: a core of eager killers, a plurality who carried out their duties reliably but without initiative, and a small minority who evaded participation in the acts of killing without diminishing the murderous efficiency of the battalion whatsoever.<br /><br />While this book discusses a specific Reserve Unit during WWII, the general argument Browning makes is that most people succumb to the pressures of a group setting and commit actions they would never do of their own volition.  <br /><br /><em>Ordinary Men</em> is a powerful, chilling, and important work with themes and arguments that continue to resonate today.  </p>

Marcus Aurelius was Roman Emperor from 161 to 180. He was the last of the Five Good Emperors, and is also considered one of the most important Stoic philosophers.<br /><br />While on campaign between 170 and 180, Aurelius wrote his <i>Meditations</i> in Greek as a source for his own guidance and self-improvement. The title of this work was added posthumously—originally he titled his work simply: "To Myself". He had a logical mind and his notes were representative of Stoic philosophy and spirituality. <br /><br /><i>Meditations</i> is still revered as a literary monument to a government of service and duty. The book has been a favourite of Frederick the Great, John Stuart Mill, Matthew Arnold, Goethe, Wen Jiabao, and Bill Clinton.<br /><br />This collection contains two different translations of the original text. The latter, <i> The Thoughts of the Emperor</i>, is annotated while the former, <i>Meditations</i>, is formatted for easy reading.

<h2>What If Dragons Were Real?</h2> <br /><br />And they roamed the Earth in the form of two breathtakingly hot guys. You’d think I was crazy but I’ll tell you what, I’ve slept with them and they are 100% real – every last inch of them. <br /><br />There’s only one problem. <br /><br />They’re dangerous – the kind of men who are known to claim women and yearn for them to birth their children. Now, logically, knowing this, I should run far, far away. <br /><br />But try running away from a couple of guys who just rocked your world into next week. It’s not that easy especially when you find yourself carrying their baby. <br /><br />So, I’m left with a choice: to live among the dragons and take my chances or to rely on my cheating ex-boyfriend and his desire for revenge. <br /><br />But is it really a choice at all? Tell me, what would you do if you knew dragons were real?<br />

Sternberg, along with her mother, two sisters, three brothers, a brother-in-law, a niece, an aunt and uncle, and her fiancé all entered into the hell of Auschwitz.<br /><br />She was the only one to leave alive again.<br /><br />At five o’clock on February 23, 1942, Nazi police, armed with rifles surrounded the hospital where Sternberg worked.<br /><br />Time had run out for the Jewish inhabitants of Breslau.<br /><br />There had been ten thousand Jewish inhabitants in the city prior to the rise of Nazis. By the end of the war only thirty-eight had escaped the gas chambers of the Nazi concentration camps. <br /><br />Sternberg’s book relates episode after episode of events where she should have been killed, but for whatever reason, she was spared.<br /><br />Much has been written of the horrific events that occurred in Nazi Germany, yet it is rare that you are able to hear of these stories written by survivors themselves. Sternberg’s book is therefore an invaluable source that uncovers the dark days that she spent in hell.<br /><br /><em>In the Hell of Auschwitz</em> is a fascinating book that provides insights into the worst horrors of the Second World War. Although at points it is a difficult read, it should be read by everyone so that such horrors will never be allowed to occur again.<br /><br />After the war Judith Sternberg Newman married Senek Newman, a fellow concentration camp survivor, and emigrated to the United States 1947. She began writing her account immediately after arriving in the United States. She worked as a nurse in Providence, Rhode Island, until her retirement. <em>In the Hell of Auschwitz</em> was first published in 1963. Newman passed away in 2008.<br />
