    A resistance fighter’s “remarkable” memoir of her imprisonment at the infamous Nazi concentration camp (The New Yorker).   Hanna Lévy-Hass, a Yugoslavian Jew, emerged a defiant survivor of the Holocaust. Her observations shed new light on the lived experience of Nazi internment during World War II, and she stands alone as the only resistance fighter to report on her own experience inside the camps—doing so with unflinching clarity in dealing with the political and social divisions inside Bergen-Belsen.   In this volume, her insightful diary is accompanied by an introduction from her daughter, Amira Hass, an Israeli journalist renowned for her reporting from the West Bank and Gaza.   “A poignant testimonial . . . Hanna Lévy-Hass was clearly a quite extraordinary woman.”—Tony Judt, Pulitzer Prize finalist and author of Postwar: A History of Europe Since 1945

    "The New World Order" is a non-fiction book by British writer H.G. Wells, published in 1940. It is a work of political philosophy and social critique, in which Wells explores the idea of a unified world government as a means of preventing future global conflicts. Written during the early stages of World War II, the book addresses the failings of nationalism and proposes that only a world order based on justice and scientific understanding can sustain humanity's progress and survival. The book has been the subject of both criticism and acclaim for its utopian ideals and controversial viewpoints.
