Summary

This WWII memoir recounts a Jewish man’s harrowing and heroic journey from Nazi-occupied Poland to standing witness at the trial of Adolph Eichmann.A brave defender of the Jewish community since his student days, Dr. David Wdowinski became a leader of the Zionist movement in Poland and head of the Zionist Revisionist Party. He saw the troubling rise of antisemitism and advocated for Jewish immigration to the Homeland. But when Germany invaded Poland in 1939, Wdowinski and his wife were still in Warsaw.In this eloquent memoir, Wdowinski recounts his part in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943. He speaks frankly of his capture and the horrors he endured in the concentration camps, as well as his efforts to raise the spirits of his comrades in their most trying hour. His struggle continued after liberation, as he applied himself once again to the Zionist movement in Italy, France, and elsewhere. In 1961, he was summoned by the Israeli government to testify at the trial of Adolph Eichmann. Delivering his testimony in flawless Hebrew, he demonstrated how the Nazi crimes against humanity were the result of centuries of psychological conditioning.

    We know-and love-the story of the American Revolution, from the Declaration of Independence to Cornwallis's defeat. But our first government was a disaster and the country was in a terrible crisis. So when a group of men traveled to Philadelphia in the summer of 1787 to save a nation in danger of collapse, they had no great expectations for the meeting that would make history. But all the ideas, arguments, and compromises led to a great thing: a constitution and a government were born that have surpassed the founders' greatest hopes.Revisiting all the original documents and using her deep knowledge of eighteenth-century history and politics, Carol Berkin takes a fresh look at the men who framed the Constitution, the issues they faced, and the times they lived in. Berkin transports the listener into the hearts and minds of the founders, exposing their fears and their limited expectations of success.

    The inspiring autobiography of the world-renowned minister and revered self-help giant whose positive thinking techniques have bettered the lives of millions of people In his 95 years, Norman Vincent Peale made a profound difference. The son of a minister in Lynchburg, Ohio, he went on to preach the Lord’s word at Manhattan’s now-famous Marble Collegiate Church, where he served as pastor for 52 years and oversaw the church’s growth from 600 members to more than 5,000. He had a popular radio program for more than half a century, and appeared regularly on television. But perhaps his most lasting and powerful contribution was as author of the mega-bestseller The Power of Positive Thinking, the groundbreaking book that provided new guidance and hope and changed countless lives for generations throughout the world.  The True Joy of Positive Living is the inspiring true story of a humble man who started out poor in a small Midwestern town and rose to become one of the most famous and influential American figures of the 20th century—a man of God who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country’s highest civilian honor, by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. Together with this wife Ruth, Dr. Peale founded the Peale Center for Christian Living and Guideposts magazine to ensure that his messages of self-confidence and the power of faith would continue to guide millions around the world even after his death. In his own uplifting words, Dr. Peale shares the story of a remarkable life lived with dignity and purpose. This stirring chronicle of an extraordinary soul—his unwavering service to the Lord and his remarkable development of the principles of positivity that had a life-altering effect on so many—will be an inspiration to all who read it.
