Still Alive Book Description :

Swept up as a child in the events of Nazi-era Europe, Ruth Kluger saw her family's comfortable Vienna existence systematically undermined and destroyed. By age eleven, she had been deported, along with her mother, to Theresienstadt, the first in a series of concentration camps which would become the setting for her precarious childhood. Kluger's story of her years in the camps and her struggle to establish a life after the war as a refugee survivor in New York, has emerged as one of the most powerful accounts of the Holocaust. Interwoven with blunt, unsparing observations of childhood and nuanced reflections of an adult who has spent a lifetime thinking about the Holocaust, Still Alive rejects all easy assumptions about history, both political and personal. Whether describing the abuse she met at her own mother's hand, the life-saving generosity of a woman SS aide in Auschwitz, the foibles and prejudices of Allied liberators, or the cold shoulder offered by her relatives when she and her mother arrived as refugees in New York, Kluger sees and names an unexpected reality which has little to do with conventional wisdom or morality tales. Still Alive is a memoir of the pursuit of selfhood against all odds, a fiercely bittersweet coming-of-age story in which the protagonist must learn never to rely on comforting assumptions, but always to seek her own truth.

I Find It Grotesque That I Am Still Alive Book Description :

"I find it grotesque that I am still alive" is the true story of Richard Krebs. Under the pen name Jan Valtin he published in 1941 a hugely successful and just as controversial fictionalized autobiography. In "Out of the Night", Richard Krebs - a German by birth - recounted his years as sailor, revolutionary, inmate of San Quentin and agent of the Communist International. In 1933 he was caught in Hitler ́s Germany and incarcerated in a concentration camp. From there he managed to escape - or so he claimed - on the understanding that he would henceforth be a Gestapo man although he in fact remained under Soviet orders. Furthermore "Out of The Night" described the machinations of a huge underground structure behind the facade of the Communist International, and claimed that it was this structure, and not the visible party apparatus, that really directed the worldwide Communist movement. In the course of his research Ernst von Waldenfels interviewed the last surviving witnesses, including Krebs' widow. Consulting the archives of the Gestapo and the Communist International in Berlin and Moscow, and several times visiting the National Archives in Washington, he hit upon a story that was different but no less astonishing than the one that Richard Krebs had told in "Out of The Night". Ernst von Waldenfels has used a wealth of research material to write a fast- paced but nonetheless accurate real life thriller. It is a portrait of a fraught and chaotic era, of the high hopes that the Russian Revolution inspired in the men and women to whom revolution was a calling, and of how those hopes were finally dashed in Stalin's and Hitler's concentration camps. It is the story of a worldwide underground network that has only recently come to light, but most of all it is the story of a man who, despite all his capacities, fell foul of the times. The book has been a critical success in Germany, and its author has been interviewed by television and radio. Excerpts from reviews: Die Ze

Rules for Vanishing Book Description :

In the faux-documentary style of The Blair Witch Project comes the campfire story of a missing girl, a vengeful ghost, and the girl who is determined to find her sister--at all costs. Once a year, a road appears in the forest. And at the end of it, the ghost of Lucy Gallows beckons. Lucy's game isn't for the faint of heart. If you win, you escape with your life. But if you lose.... Sara's sister disappeared one year ago--and only Sara knows where she is. Becca went to find the ghost of Lucy Gallows and is trapped on the road that leads to her. In the sleepy town of Briar Glen, Lucy's road is nothing more than local lore. But Sara knows it's real, and she's going to find it. When Sara and her skeptical friends meet in the forest to search for Becca, the mysterious road unfurls before them. All they have to do is walk down it. But the path to Lucy is not of this world, and it has its own rules. Every mistake summons new horrors. Vengeful spirits and broken, angry creatures are waiting for them to slip, and no one is guaranteed safe passage. The only certainty is this: the road has a toll and it will be paid. Sara knows that if she steps onto the road, she might not come back. But Becca needs her. And Lucy is waiting.
