Song of Survival - Women Interned, Helen Colijn
4 Helen Colijn Song of Survival - Women Interned
Millenium Books 228885 Australia 1996 First Australian Edition 186429065X / 9781864290653 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Thrown into the whirlwind of dark forces unleashed with the onset of World War II, a young woman, Helen Colijn, her sisters, and father flee the oncoming Japanese army. Helen Colijn's account of her wartime experiences is a window into a largely overlooked dimension of World War II -- the imprisonment of women and children in Southeast Asia by the Japanese and how these prisoners of war responded to their dire circumstances. The conditions were terrible. Food was scarce; medicine unavailable. Held in captivity for three and a half years, more that a third of the women in Helen's camp died of disease or starvation. Yet their courage, faith, resiliency, ingenuity, and camaraderie provide us with enduring lessons on living. Though the prisoners had no musical instruments, they had their voices, and from memory scored classical works for symphony and piano. The music that helped sustain them while in captivity is a lasting and precious gift of these women to a world that has witnessed far too much war. 216 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: War::World War II; History; ISBN: 186429065X. ISBN/EAN: 9781864290653. Inventory No: 228885.

The Holocaust, Laurence Rees
6 Laurence Rees The Holocaust
Penguin Books 235041 Australia 2017 First Edition 0241298180 / 9780241298183 Trade Paperback Near Fine Condition No Dust Jacket THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP 10 BESTSELLER AND THE FIRST AUTHORITATIVE ACCOUNT FOR 30 YEARS.'By far the clearest book ever written about the Holocaust, and also the best at explaining its origins and grotesque mentality, as well as its chaotic development' Antony Beevor'Groundbreaking. You might have thought that we know everything there is to know about the Holocaust but this book proves there is much more' Andrew Roberts, Mail on SundayTwo fundamental questions about the Holocaust must be answered:How did it happen? And why?More completely than any other single work of history yet published, Laurence Rees's Holocaust definitively answers them.'With The Holocaust Rees has set himself the task of writing an accessible chronological account of the murder of six million Jews in conditions of scarcely imaginable horror. He's done it excellently. There is no shortage of books on the Holocaust but Rees's stands out as a readable and authoritative exposition of how and why it happened, and the barbarous methods by which it was pursued. The amount of ground it covers in 500 pages is remarkable - from the anti-Semitism of popular German literature of the 19th century to Hitler's suicide and the surrender of his regime. It's excellently written and skilfully interweaves narrative history, sound interpretation and the recollections (through interviews, listed in the notes as "previously unpublished testimony") of survivors. Rees provides an exemplary account of how the greatest crime in modern history came about' The Times'Rees has distilled 25 years of research into this compelling study, the finest single-volume account of the Holocaust. It is not a book for the faint-hearted. Some of the first-hand testimony is both shocking and heart-rending. Yet it has important things to say about human nature - what our species is capable of doing if not prevented by civilized laws - and demands to be read' Saul David, Telegraph'Anyone wanting a compelling, highly readable explanation of how and why the Holocaust happened, drawing on recent scholarship and impressively incorporating moving and harrowing interviews need look no further than Laurence Rees's brilliant book' Professor Ian Kershaw, bestselling author of Hitler 509 pages.

At the Heart of the Reich : The Secret Diary of Hitler's Army Adjutant, Major Gerhard Engel
8 Major Gerhard Engel At the Heart of the Reich : The Secret Diary of Hitler's Army Adjutant
Greenhill Books 235042 London 2005 1853676551 / 9781853676550 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good 'Vivid, personal and fascinating.' Simon Sebag Montefiore. Gerhard Engel was Hitler's Army Adjutant from March 1938 to March 1943. During this time he kept a diary, and after the war he added material to shed further light on key events and decisions.He discloses the decision-making process behind many of the key operations and addresses the intrigues within Hitler's inner circle, recounting the Fuhrer's conversations with Halder, Guderian and Brauchitsch. Engel also details Hitler's views on German Jews, and in the final part of the diary he covers the war against Russia. Increasingly, towards the end, he depicts Hitler as a vacillating and contrary man. At the Heart of the Reich offers a unique and intimate view of Hitler and his closest aides. It reveals the mechanisms and personalities of the centre of the Third Reich, and provides a fresh perspective of the Nazi leadership. 208 pages. Black and white illustrations. Quantity Available: 1.

Defiance: The True Story of the Bielski Partisans, Nechama Tec
9 Nechama Tec Defiance: The True Story of the Bielski Partisans
Oxford University Press 232790 Great Britain 1993 0195385233 / 9780195385236 Softcover Very Good Condition Foreword by Edward Zwick. The prevailing image of European Jews during the Holocaust is one of helpless victims, but in fact many Jews struggled against the terrors of the Third Reich. In Defiance, Nechama Tec offers a riveting history of one such group, a forest community in western Belorussia that would number more than 1,200 Jews by 1944--the largest armed rescue operation of Jews by Jews in World War II. Tec reveals that this extraordinary community included both men and women, some with weapons, but mostly unarmed, ranging from infants to the elderly. She reconstructs for the first time the amazing details of how these partisans and their families--hungry, exposed to the harsh winter weather--managed not only to survive, but to offer protection to all Jewish fugitives who could find their way to them. Arguing that this success would have been unthinkable without the vision of one man, Tec offers penetrating insight into the group's commander, Tuvia Bielski. Tec brings to light the untold story of Bielski's struggle as a partisan who lost his parents, wife, and two brothers to the Nazis, yet never wavered in his conviction that it was more important to save one Jew than to kill twenty Germans. She shows how, under Bielski's guidance, the partisans smuggled Jews out of heavily guarded ghettos, scouted the roads for fugitives, and led retaliatory raids against Belorussian peasants who collaborated with the Nazis. Herself a Holocaust survivor, Nechama Tec here draws on wide-ranging research and never before published interviews with surviving partisans--including Tuvia Bielski himself--to reconstruct here the poignant and unforgettable story of those who chose to fight. 13 halftones, 2 line illustrations 374 pages.
