14 anni e un numero tatuato sul braccio: A10567 Ispirato a una storia vera Il commovente tentativo di restare bambini nell'inferno di un campo di concentramento A10567: è ancora giovanissimo Alexander Altmann, ma non ha bisogno di guardare il numero tatuato sul suo braccio, lo conosce a memoria. Sa anche che per sopravvivere ad Auschwitz, dovrebbe irrobustirsi, ma è difficile in quell’inferno. Ogni giorno deve assistere a umiliazioni, violenze e soprusi indicibili. Ma Alexander ha imparato subito che per non morire bisogna essere forti e duri soprattutto nel cuore. Quando però gli viene affidato il compito di domare il nuovo cavallo del comandante di Auschwitz, in Alexander nasce un motivo di nuova speranza: se riuscirà a superare la diffidenza dell’animale e a condurlo al passo, forse guadagnerà il rispetto dei suoi carcerieri. Se fallirà, invece, sarà la morte per entrambi. Si può rimanere umani dove non c’è più compassione? Ispirato a una storia vera, un racconto toccante e commovente. «Suzy Zail è riuscita a gestire con la massima delicatezza una storia terrificante. Ha dato un volto umano a un evento tragico.» «Ho amato il protagonista, semplicemente perché è REALE!» «Una storia avvincente, che non riuscivo a smettere di leggere.»Suzy ZailHa lavorato come avvocato prima di dedicarsi a tempo pieno alla scrittura. In uno dei suoi libri ha raccontato la storia del padre, un sopravvissuto all’Olocausto. Vive a Melbourne.

Una storia veraLa testimonianza mai raccontata del bambino che da solo sfuggì agli orrori dell’OlocaustoSam Pivnik, figlio di un sarto ebreo, nasce a Bedzin in Polonia e trascorre una vita normale fino al primo settembre del 1939 - giorno del suo tredicesimo compleanno - quando i nazisti invadono la Polonia e la guerra spazza via in un attimo ogni possibilità di futuro. Da quel momento la sua vita non sarà più la stessa. Sam conosce il ghetto, i divieti imposti dai nazisti, il coprifuoco, gli stenti, il terrore per le strade. Poi, dopo un rastrellamento, tutta la sua famiglia viene deportata al campo di concentramento di Auschwitz-Birkenau. Strappato alla sua famiglia, che trova la morte nelle camere a gas, Sam subisce terribili soprusi e atrocità, e ogni giorno, alla famigerata Rampa di arrivo dei treni dei deportati, vede compiersi sotto i suoi occhi la più inenarrabile delle tragedie. Sopravvissuto alla crudeltà delle SS e dei Kapo, ai lavori forzati nella miniera Fürstengrube e alla “marcia della morte” nel rigido inverno polacco, Sam è infine tra i prigionieri sulla nave Cap Arcona, bombardata dalla Royal Air Force perché luogo di esperimenti dei nazisti su donne e bambini da parte delle SS. Ma ancora una volta, miracolosamente, riesce a salvarsi. Questo libro racchiude una testimonianza unica al mondo: la storia di un uomo che ha attraversato tutti i gironi dell’inferno nazista, ed è sopravvissuto per portare ai posteri la testimonianza di un orrore indicibile che non dovrà mai più ripetersi.Una storia vera, unica e commoventeUn grande successo internazionaleTradotto in sette paesiLa gente spesso mi chiede perché abbia aspettato tanto per raccontare la mia storia. È una domanda semplice, ma la risposta non lo è.Sam Pivniknato nel 1926 a Bedzin, Polonia, nel 1943 venne deportato nel campo di concentramento di Auschwitz-Birkenau, dove il resto della sua famiglia, eccetto suo fratello Nathan, trovò la morte nelle camere a gas. Sopravvissuto alla terribile esperienza del lager, è stato liberato nel maggio del 1945. Dopo la fine della seconda guerra mondiale, si è trasferito a Londra, dove ha aperto una galleria di antiquariato.

Winner of the Longman-History Today Book Prize 2016 On a sunny morning in May 1939 a phalanx of 800 women - housewives, doctors, opera singers, politicians, prostitutes - were marched through the woods fifty miles north of Berlin, driven on past a shining lake, then herded through giant gates. Whipping and kicking them were scores of German women guards. Their destination was Ravensbrück, a concentration camp designed specifically for women by Heinrich Himmler, prime architect of the Nazi genocide. For decades the story of Ravensbrück was hidden behind the Iron Curtain and today is still little known. Using testimony unearthed since the end of the Cold War, and interviews with survivors who have never spoken before, Helm has ventured into the heart of the camp, demonstrating for the reader in riveting detail how easily and quickly the unthinkable horror evolved.

In 1941, three brothers witnessed their parents and two other siblings being led away to their eventual murders. It was a grim scene that would, of course, be repeated endlessly throughout the war. Instead of running or giving in to despair, these brothers -- Tuvia, Zus, and Asael Bielski -- fought back, waging a guerrilla war of wits against the Nazis. By using their intimate knowledge of the dense forests surrounding the Belarusan towns of Novogrudek and Lida, the Bielskis evaded the Nazis and established a hidden base camp, then set about convincing other Jews to join their ranks. As more and more Jews arrived each day, a robust community began to emerge, a "Jerusalem in the woods." After two and a half years in the woods, in July 1944, the Bielskis learned that the Germans, overrun by the Red Army, were retreating back toward Berlin. More than one thousand Bielski Jews emerged -- alive -- on that final, triumphant exit from the woods.

The story of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is very difficult to describe. Usually we give some clues about the book on the cover, but in this case we think that would spoil the reading of the book. We think it is important that you start to read without knowing what it is about. If you do start to read this book, you will go on a journey with a nine-year-old boy called Bruno. And sooner or later you will arrive with Bruno at a fence. We hope you never have to cross such a fence.

A Publishers Weekly best book of 1995! Dr. Michael Guillen, known to millions as the science editor of ABC's Good Morning America, tells the fascinating stories behind five mathematical equations. As a regular contributor to daytime's most popular morning news show and an instructor at Harvard University, Dr. Michael Guillen has earned the respect of millions as a clear and entertaining guide to the exhilarating world of science and mathematics. Now Dr. Guillen unravels the equations that have led to the inventions and events that characterize the modern world, one of which -- Albert Einstein's famous energy equation, E=mc2 -- enabled the creation of the nuclear bomb. Also revealed are the mathematical foundations for the moon landing, airplane travel, the electric generator -- and even life itself. Praised by Publishers Weekly as "a wholly accessible, beautifully written exploration of the potent mathematical imagination," and named a Best Nonfiction Book of 1995, the stories behind The Five Equations That Changed the World, as told by Dr. Guillen, are not only chronicles of science, but also gripping dramas of jealousy, fame, war, and discovery.

Pope Benedict XVI, the only modern-day Pope to retire whilst in office, now finally breaks his silence. Since retiring from the papacy in 2013, the first Pope in over 700 years to do so, Pope Benedict has lived quietly in a convent in the Vatican gardens in Rome. He has devoted himself to a life of prayer and study and has vowed to remain silent, until now. So much controversy still surrounds Pope Benedict's time in office. In this book, written with bestselling German author Peter Seewald, he addresses the issues of his papacy and reveals how, at his late age, governing and reforming the Church was beyond him. Last Testament is also an autobiography, recalling Pope Benedict's childhood in Germany under Nazism, his early development as a priest, and eventually his appointment as Archbishop of Munich. After becoming Pope, his account deals with the controversies that rocked the Catholic world: how he enraged Muslims with his Regensburg speech, what he did and did not do to stamp out the clerical sexual abuse of children, the 'Vatileaks' scandal and how he broke up a gay cabal within the Vatican itself. At all times, we see a man who is shy and retiring and modest being exceptionally open and frank with the outside world. In this Last Testament, a unique book insofar as no other living Pope has had the opportunity to write an account having left office, Benedict gives in his own words an unprecedented view of the difficulties, the achievements and the consequences of his time as head of the Catholic Church worldwide.
