The lion seeker : a novel

Monday, 28 July, 2014

@TitleJohannesburg, South Africa. The Great Depression. In this harsh new country, young Isaac Helger burns with fiery determination - to break out of the inner city, to buy his scarred mother the home she longs for, to find a way to realize her dream of reuniting a family torn apart. But there are terrible, unspoken secrets of the past that will haunt him as he makes hi way through a society brutalized by racism, as he loses his heart to an unattainable girl from the city's wealthiest heights and his every exit route from poverty dead-ends. When the threat of the Second World War insinuates itself with brutal force into Isaac's reality, he will face the most important choice of his life...and will have to learn to live with the consequences.

The Article That Told the World About the Holocaust

Monday, July 28, 2014

n July 22, 1942—seventy-two years ago to this day—the first inhabitants of the Warsaw Ghetto were placed in rail cars and deported to Nazi concentration camps. Accounts of exact numbers vary, but less than six months later, the ghetto held only approximately 50,000 of the original 550,000 Jews. The rest had been deported. Most had died or would soon die in Treblinka, at the hands of the Nazis. Five months after those deportations began, on December 22, 1942, The New Republic published one of the very first accounts of the Holocaust that would reach Western eyes.
