The author of The New York Times best seller Escape returns with a moving and inspirational tale of her life after she heroically fled the cult she´d been raised in, her hard-won new identity and happiness, and her determination to win justice for the crimes committed against her family.In 2003, Carolyn Jessop, 35, a lifelong member of the extremist Mormon sect the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), gathered up her eight children, including her profoundly disabled four-year-old son, and escaped in the middle of the night to freedom. Jessop detailed the story of her harrowing flight and the shocking conditions that sparked it in her 2007 memoir, Escape. Reveling in her newfound identity as a best-selling author, a devoted mom, and a loving companion to the wonderful man in her life, Jessop thought she had put her past firmly behind her.Then, on April 3, 2008, it came roaring back. On that date, the state of Texas staged a surprise raid on the Yearning for Zion Ranch, a sprawling, 1,700-acre compound near Eldorado, Texas, to which the jailed FLDS prophet Warren Jeffs had relocated his sects most worthy members three years earlier.The ranch was being run by Merril Jessop, Carolyn´s ex-husband and one of the cult´s most powerful leaders.In Triumph, Jessop tells the real, and even more harrowing, story behind the raid and sets the public straight on much of the damaging misinformation that flooded the media in its aftermath. She recounts the setbacks (the tragic decision of the Supreme Court of Texas to allow the children in state custody to return to their parents) as well as the successes (the fact that evidence seized in the raid is the basis for the string of criminal trials of FLDS leaders that began in October 2009 and will continue throughout 2010), all while weaving in details of her own life since the publication of her first book. ungekürzt.

A Century of Wisdom is an inspiring story of resilience and the power of optimism - the true story of Alice Herz-Sommer, the world’s oldest living Holocaust survivor. At 108 years old, the pianist Alice Herz-Sommer is an eyewitness to the entire last century and the first decade of this one. She has seen it all, surviving the Theresienstadt concentration camp, attending the trial of Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem, and along the way coming into contact with some of the most fascinating historical figures of our time. As a child in Prague, she spent weekends and holidays in the company of Franz Kafka (whom she knew as ´´Uncle Franz”), and Gustav Mahler, Sigmund Freud, and Rainer Maria Rilke were friendly with her mother. When Alice moved to Israel after the war, Golda Meir attended her house concerts, as did Arthur Rubinstein, Leonard Bernstein, and Isaac Stern. Today Alice lives in London, where she still practices piano for hours every day. Despite her imprisonment in Theresienstadt and the murders of her mother, husband, and friends by the Nazis, and much later the premature death of her son, Alice has been victorious in her ability to live a life without bitterness. She credits music as the key to her survival, as well as her ability to acknowledge the humanity in each person, even her enemies. A Century of Wisdom is the remarkable and inspiring story of one woman’s lifelong determination - in the face of some of the worst evils known to man - to find goodness in life. It is a testament to the bonds of friendship, the power of music, and the importance of leading a life of material simplicity, intellectual curiosity, and never-ending optimism. ungekürzt.

The Diet Survivor´s Handbook:60 Lessons in Eating, Acceptance and Self-Care Sourcebooks Judith Matz, Ellen Frankel
It is sometimes difficult to remember that in war there are innocents on all sides who suffer. German citizens who had no connection to the atrocities committed by their countrymen nonetheless endured great hardships because of them. In The Inner War, author Gerda Hartwich Robinson narrates her story as a German survivor of World War II. She tells how her life´s journey included hunger, fear, neglect, and physical and emotional abuse and how she carried these injustices in her mind and body for many years, leading to debilitating back pain, headaches, panic attacks, depression, and feelings of inadequacy. In this touching memoir, Robinson shows that the tragedies of war don´t end when the last bomb is dropped or the last prisoner freed; they continue in subtle but devastating ways. Like many German citizens during and after the war, Robinson was simply trying to survive a terrifying situation she had nothing to do with. She describes how her spirit was devastated by hopelessness and how she entertained thoughts of suicide. The Inner War shares lessons she learned at a chronic pain rehabilitation center that allowed her to start on a path to peace and love. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Susannah Tyrrell.

The Holocaust has no other comparison in the annals of human history because of the sheer extent of the terror it spread. In 1933 the population of Jews in Europe was about nine million. After Adolf Hitler came to power on a campaign of aggressive foreign policy, focus on domestic unification and the idea of racial superiority - nearly two thirds of the Jewish people in the continent had perished. The ´´Final Solution´´ to the ´´Jewish Problem´´ was, of course, murder. Although Jews, who were seen by Hitler and the Nazi regime as primarily responsible for Germany´s capitulation in the First World War, in addition to being inferior as a race, were the primary targets, several other demographics also received attention during the holocaust. These were the disabled, the gypsies, and some of the Slavic nations. Several others were targeted based on their ideology: homosexuals, Communists, and Jehovah´s Witnesses (who had completely disappeared from Germany by 1939). Nearly 200,000 physically and mentally disabled people were murdered under the Euthanasia program. We wouldn´t even know about the true extent and horror of the Holocaust if it were not for the survivors, scattered all across the world, who have made a point of speaking out about these atrocities. They want to make sure this deplorable chapter in human history does not vanish into obscurity and the lessons from it remain unlearned. If you enjoy learning all about the history of the holocaust, its survivors, rescuers, and heroines, then grab this box set now! ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Matthew Weller.
