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 />

<b>George Catlin spent eight years living among and learning from Native Americans of the Great Plains and the Far West.<br /><br />Over the course of five trips he took in the 1830s and 1840s he came to encounter fifty different tribes, including the Pawnee, Omaha, and Ponca in the south and the Mandan, Cheyenne, Crow, Assiniboine, and Blackfeet to the north.</b><br /><br />During these expeditions he came to learn a great deal about the culture and customs of the various tribes.<br /><br /><em>My Life among the Indians</em> records the ways of the life of these rapidly vanishing indigenous populations. He spoke with and recorded the thoughts and acts of their leaders, warriors, medicine men, as well as their women and children. <br /><br />Catlin provides insight into various Native American tribes; how they lived, what they ate, where they slept, how they played and enjoyed themselves, as well as how they worshipped. He demonstrates not only the similarities that were apparent between all the tribes, but also their huge differences that could sometimes lead to tensions.<br /><br />“His task was to rescue ‘from oblivion the looks and customs of the vanishing races of native men in America,’ a task to which he dedicated his life and his energies. This volume helps us to appreciate the significance of the cause — and the varied achievements of a remarkable man who accepted his own challenge.” James T. Forrest, <em>The Western Historical Quarterly</em><br /><br />This work was derived from his much larger work, <em> Letters and Notes on the Manners, Customs and Condition of the North American Indians</em> that he wrote while exploring the Far West, but as a readable overview of Native American life in the mid-nineteenth century <em>My Life among the Indians</em> cannot be surpassed.<br /><br />George Catlin was an American author and traveler who was particularly famous for his portraits of Native Americans in the Old West. Travelling to the American West five times during the 1830s, Catlin was the first white man to depict Plains Indians in their native territory. His book <em>My Life among the Indians</em> was posthumously published in 1909 and Catlin passed in 1872.<br />

<DIV><B>Evangelicals and Donald Trump: A Match Made in Heaven or a Marriage with Hell?</B><BR />  <BR /><B><I>As a Christian, how can you support a president whose present actions and personal history you utterly disagree with? </I></B>Radio host, Biblical scholar, and social activist, Dr. Michael Brown, represented the collective fears of many evangelical Christians when it became clear that Donald J. Trump would emerge as presidential candidate for the Republican Party.  <BR />  <BR /><B>“How can I support Trump?” </B><BR />  <BR /> Undeniably, one of the most polarizing figures in American history, Donald Trump is constantly confounding the masses.  He wars against “fake news” while creating his own media with “Tweets” that can provoke national dissension and confront unstable foreign relations.  With one hand, he’s bringing healing; with the other, it looks like he is hurting.<BR /><BR /> As an evangelical leader, Dr. Brown steps into the madness to help bring clarity. Even now, many Christians are wondering how to Biblically and morally respond to a Trump presidency.  Some are hailing him as “Savior and Chief,” whose every word and action is to be commended; others utterly and completely reject him. <I>Where is the balance and what is the right response?</I><BR />  <BR /> Presented with balanced social commentary, theological integrity, and a passion to see America fulfill her divine destiny, Dr. Brown shows you how to:<ul><li><B>Cautiously support a flawed leader</B> while maintaining allegiance to the lordship of Jesus.</li><li><B>Recognize the movement of God</B> that’s present in the Trump presidency.</li><li><B>Praise the good and confront the bad</B> when it comes to the president’s actions and decisions. </li></ul>Whether you are a Trump enthusiast, or you cringe every time you read the headlines, Dr. Michael Brown will spiritually help you navigate the tumultuous waters of the uncertain social and political landscape.</DIV>

<b><h2>“In these pages, a woman, a wife and mother, speaks the sorrows and oppressions of which she has been the witness and the victim.” Harriet Beecher Stowe</b></h2><br /><br />Fanny Stenhouse’s famous work <em>Tell it All</em> is a withering attack on the practice of polygamy that developed as a prominent tenet of Mormon faith in the nineteenth century.<br /><br />She begins her story with an account of how as a young woman her family had converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and how she had attracted the attention, and subsequently married, T. B. H. Stenhouse.<br /><br />Living in Europe they were unaware of how their religion was developing in the Midwest and how the practice of plural marriage was beginning to become ever more prevalent among the members of their faith.<br /><br />Responding to encouragement and counselling they eventually emigrated to the promised land of Utah and to their horror they began to learn that the rumors of Joseph Smith’s polygamic revelation were true and that some of the church leadership, such as Brigham Young, had over fifty wives.<br /><br /><em>Tell it All</em> provides fascinating insight into how the Mormon faith was developing in the mid-nineteenth century and how women such as Fanny were struggling to come to terms with doctrines such as polygamy.<br /><br /><br />The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints largely distanced itself from polygamy in the later-nineteenth century, much due to the work of women such as Fanny Stenhouse and others including a former wife of Brigham Young, Ann Eliza Young.<br /><br />This book also uncovers some of the other darker moments of Mormon history such as the Mountains Meadows Massacre, in which the men and women of an emigrant wagon train were indiscriminately slaughtered by Mormons of the Nauvoo Legion.<br /><br />“added more details on polygamy, on Brigham Young’s life in polygamy, and on the Mountains Meadows Massacre” <em> The John Whitmer Historical Association Journal</em><br /><br />Fanny Stenhouse was an early Mormon pioneer who, along with her husband T. B. H. Stenhouse, defected from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, largely due to their disagreements with the church about polygamy. <em>Tell it All A Woman's Life in Polygamy</em> was first published in 1872 and Fanny passed away in 1904.<br />

P.G. Wodehouse was an English author and one of the most widely read humorists of the 20th century. Wodehouse worked extensively on his books, sometimes having two or more in preparation simultaneously. He would take up to two years to build a plot and write a scenario of about thirty thousand words. After the scenario was complete he would write the story. Early in his career he would produce a novel in about three months, but he slowed in old age to around six months. He used a mixture of Edwardian slang, quotations from and allusions to numerous poets, and several literary techniques to produce a prose style that has been compared to comic poetry and musical comedy.

A young lesbian girl grows beyond fear to fearlessness as she comes of age in the ’60s amid religious, social, and legal barriers.<br /><br />Carol Anderson grows up in a fundamentalist Christian home in the ’60s, a time when being gay was in opposition to all social and religious mores and against the law in most states. Fearing the rejection of her parents, she hides the truth about her love orientation, creating emotional distance from them for years, as she desperately struggles to harness her powerful attractions to women while pursuing false efforts to be with men. <br /><br />The watershed point in Carol's journey comes when she returns to graduate school and discovers the feminist movement, which emboldens her sense of personal power and the freedom to love whom she chooses. But this sense of self-possession comes too late for honesty with her father. His unexpected death before she can tell him the truth brings the full cost of Carol's secret crashing in compelling her to come out to her mother before it is too late. <br /><br />Candid and poignant, <i>You Can't Buy Love Like That</i> reveals the complex invisible dynamics that arise for gay people who are forced to hide their true selves in order to survive and celebrates the hard-won rewards of finding one's courageous heart and achieving self-acceptance and self-love.
