The true story of four young Hungarians seeking inner direction at a time of outer upheaval, the holocaust. The intense experience depicted in this book provides them with new direction and hope. In the darkest hours of World War II, these friends, three of them Jewish, seek orientation and meaning in their shattered lives. During seventeen months, one of them, Hanna Dallos, delivers oral messages which Gitta Mallasz and Lili Strausz record in their notebooks. These messages, or teachings as they came to be known, end abruptly with the deportation of Hanna and Lili to Ravensbrück in December of 1944. Gitta Mallasz, the only survivor of the quartet, first published the notes in France in 1976. The dialogues document an extraordinary light-filled spiritual resistance in the midst of Nazi darkness and barbarous cruelty.

An intimate look at the people ensnared by the US detention and deportation system, the largest in the world On a bright Phoenix morning, Elena Santiago opened her door to find her house surrounded by a platoon of federal immigration agents. Her children screamed as the officers handcuffed her and drove her away. Within hours, she was deported to the rough border town of Nogales, Sonora, with nothing but the clothes on her back. Her two-year-old daughter and 15-year-old son, both American citizens, were taken by the state of Arizona and consigned to foster care. Their mother's only offense: living undocumented in the United States. Immigrants like Elena, who've lived in the United States for years, are being detained and deported at unprecedented rates. Thousands languish in detention centers - often torn from their families - for months or even years. Deportees are returned to violent Central American nations or unceremoniously dropped off in dangerous Mexican border towns. Despite the dangers of the desert crossing, many immigrants will slip across the border again, stopping at nothing to get home to their children. Drawing on years of reporting in the Arizona-Mexico borderlands, journalist Margaret Regan tells their poignant stories. Inside the massive Eloy Detention Center, a for-profit private prison in Arizona, she meets detainee Yolanda Fontes, a mother separated from her three small children. In a Nogales soup kitchen, deportee Gustavo Sanchez, a young father who'd lived in Phoenix since the age of eight, agonizes about the risks of the journey back. Regan demonstrates how increasingly draconian detention and deportation policies have broadened police powers, while enriching a private prison industry whose profits are derived from human suffering. She also documents the rise of resistance, profiling activists and young immigrant "Dreamers" who are fighting for the rights of the undocumented. Compelling and 1. Language: English.

The brand-new thriller featuring Investigative Analyst Fredrika Bergman and Alex Recht of the Stockholm police. Shortly after a crowded New York-bound flight takes off from Stockholm, a bomb threat is found onboard. Anonymous hijackers demand that the Swedish government revoke its decision to deport a Moroccan man. If their demands are not met, the plane will explode if it attempts to land. The US and Swedish governments must choose between negotiating with terrorists in order to save the 400 passengers held hostage at 30,000 feet or to stand their ground and pursue the deportation of a possibly innocent man. Fredrika Bergman returns to the police force to act as a liaison between Police Superintendent Alex Recht and the abrasive Eden Lundell, agent with the Security Service's counterterrorism unit. But they soon realize that the plot behind the hijacking is far more complex than anyone initially thought. As the hours pass, the team are running out of options, and the plane is running out of fuel.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Maggie Mash.

The Disappearance of Daniel Klein chronicles the story of a boy magician with mismatched eyes (one blue, one green) who captures the dark interest of a Nazi research doctor. Despite growing up as a Jewish orphan in the midst of World War II, Daniel Klein still believes in the miraculous and the good and all that comes with it. He finds solace in magic, spends his afternoon hours pulling silver coins from the air and turning white handkerchiefs red, proving again and again that things are not always as they seem. But on one night, with one little boy decision, Daniel and his friends unknowingly give up their only chance to avoid deportation to a concentration camp. At that camp resides Karl Vendel, an awkward and obsessive Nazi research doctor who takes a dark interest in Daniel s rare eye color. As Daniel struggles to cope with the conditions of the camp and the impending loss of his sight, he finds himself increasingly confused, unable to separate imagination from reality. And as he begins to witness miraculous, near otherworldly things, Daniel wonders if he is losing his sanity or if something from the beyond is trying to help him survive. Penned by screenwriter, Cynthia Hagan, The Disappearance of Daniel Klein is a story about the bonds of childhood friendship and the transcending power of belief. More, it begs us to ask the question: Is there life beyond life as we know it? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gregory Peyton.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! As the Soviet Union had occupied Estonia in 1940 and retaken it from Nazi Germany again in 1944, tens of thousands of Estonia's citizens underwent deportation in the 1940s. Deportations were predominantly to Siberia and Kazakhstan by means of railroad cattle cars, without prior announcement, while deported were given few night hours at best to pack their belongings and separated from their families, usually also sent to the east. The procedure was established by the Serov Instructions. Estonians residing in Leningrad Oblast had already been subjected to deportation since 1935. The first repressions in Estonia affected Estonia's national elite. On July 17, 1940, Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces Johan Laidoner and his family, and on July 30, 1940, President Konstantin Päts and his family were deported to Penza and Ufa, respectively.
