Anne (spartandax) | 4 comments Children of Dust and Heaven: A Diary from Nazi occupation through the Holocaust
This is a riveting collective memoir is both incredibly personal and yet tremendous in scope, and all profits are donated to the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust.

This book is written by a Holocaust survivor and is based on her own harrowing experiences, as well as the diary of a young girl. The author interviewed hundreds of the residents of her town after the war and put together this powerful, historic vivid account of how the Nazis occupied her hometown in Poland and systematically tormented and killed so many Jews.

Starting with Hitler's orders and the Nazi Occupation, the author describes how day to day life changed for everyone around her. Simple routines and joys taken away day by day, but the struggle to survive was strong. From the overcrowding of the ghetto, to lack of food and water to the deportations to concentration camps, work camps and death camps of the Holocaust, the author details it all.

Anne (spartandax) | 4 comments Schreiber's Secret
Most Nazi sadists went to the grave with their secrets. Who was Hans Schreiber - and what was his terrible secret?
Crime reporter Mark Edwards and his colleague Danielle Green wade deep in red herrings and a twisting and turning plot as they seek to discover the terrible secret of a Nazi sadist who has continued his murdering ways in modern London. The story switches from a wartime transit camp in Czechoslovakia to contemporary Germany; from a London suburb to the Old Bailey, the world's most famous criminal court, where two men strive to claim that the other is the real Hans Schreiber.
Schreiber's Secret is a gripping tale of unimaginable horror and hatred revolving around a question of identity. Who is the real Hans Schreiber?

Anne (spartandax) | 4 comments Whatever Happened to Raoul Wallenberg?

In this fascinating book Morris records the details of his twenty-seven year search for Wallenberg, beginning with a Saturday of law research in the Penn law library in March of 1983, and extending to his persuasive arguments in the District of Columbia federal court room in 1984. As he explains in his book, Morris obtained the unanimous support of the United States Congress for his law suit in 1985. He also mentions my enjoyable discussion with him at the White House on November 22, 1993. He takes us into worlds of research and discovery of awesome value. His well documented book includes details of his amazing effort to enlist and persuade the Israeli Mossad to slip into Russia in an attempt to rescue Wallenberg.

Morris Wolff is an awesome man. He has no quit in his system. You will read about his victorious day in court before Judge Parker, and the historic $39 million dollar award given the family as damages for the injustice suffered.

But most of all you will read a good book, and witness how much one man can do to achieve Justice.

Peter | 38 comments Absolutely fascinating. There were all kinds of rumors and suppositions over the years that Raoul Wallenberg disappeared into the Soviet gulag right towards the end of W.W.II, and ultimately died there, but there was never any hard proof about it.
