It strives to show that Plato's definition of the Creator God is valid. He created the Cosmos - the region of the distinctions that have intelligibility to the intelligence of human awareness (Ge-wahr-sein). They belong to the human power of knowing through simultaneity, due to God's generosity. Plato affirms, in his "Timaeus" (36d-41b) the importance of the 'psyche' - the soul. It means in Greek originally 'breath' , this affirms the reality of 'self-movement' - 'Eigenbewegung. It is the power whose ability to change depends on the person's own accord, its own intention.. It is the anti-dote to Newton's 'understanding', of the 'law' of the physical, material bodies, which demand another power to change their movement . The reality of psyche justifies the concept of 'auto-kinesis' - as cause.We can understand that God created the world as good as possible. He was good and the good is never jealous! He told us that He is our Father, of the creation that is indissoluble, if 'He wills it so'. All that is bound may be undone, but you shall not be liable to the fate of death, having in His will a greater and mightier bond than those with which you were bound. The writings of the British philosopher Alfred A.E. Taylor gave me better understanding of the validity to acknowledge our human contact with eternal reality, culminating in the concept of "Creator God", which our contemporary academicians consider spurious. LaPlace had assured Napoleon already that we do not need the concept of God any longer; he was not aware that the 'sciences of physics' were under the veil of dubious numbers. accepting that : "Minus times Minus is plus" "The Reason for this we do not discuss"!! Pascal was one of the most out-spoken to reject as 'pure nonsense' the teaching of the 'subtraction of 'four' from '0'. Some tried to understand that to take four from zero remains 'zero'. Yet there never was 'any thing' to be taken! Nietzsche had warned us, that "the numbers had put a 'veil' over our thoughts".The Arabic number system was soo 'handy'!. The 'death of God' was soon proclaimed. The asthonishing fact that the oldest societies in the Euphrat-Tigres triangle had concepts of "Paradise lost" in their memory- language; in their -Sumerian, Indo-Persian Lore. The trilingual text could finally be decipher achieved in 1844 by Rawlinson, when he achieved to decipher the ancient form of writing used in Mesopotamia for many languages in the millennia leading to the first century A.D. He could copy relief sculptures and their accompanying cuneiform inscriptions in Old Persian, Elamite and Babylonian. He could decipher their meaning. They became as the Rosetta Stone for the Hieroglyphics. In 1857 a contest sponsored by the London Royal Asiatic society, pitting Him against other Scholars, proved that he had broken the code. The concept of Paradise was known to these societies, 4000-3000 years prior to Hebrew report. It is worth-while to remember. Brigitte Dehmelt Cooper tried to keep these distinctions in her attention.

In Troubled Times, a Song of Hope At the age of seven, during Hitler's rise to power, Sonia Korn-Grimani was officially declared an enemy of the German State. After a perilous escape to the Belgian border, she witnessed the chaos and carnage of the Battle of Belgium. She lived with her family in the shadows, fleeing and hiding from persecution until being placed in an orphanage. There she lived with more than twenty other Jewish children, all disguised as a Catholic orphans, and all kept near starvation. Sonia forged triumph out from these tragedies with unshakable tenacity and beguiling charm, a life chronicled in the new book Sonia's Song. She sang to the delight of audiences throughout the world, became an international sensation of radio and television, tutored French to a Queen, and was named a Chevalier by the French Government. Sonia's Song follows this remarkable woman's transformation, starting from her childhood in Germany and Belgium in the 1930's and 40's, continuing post-war to Australia and Malaysia, and touching on her life in modern France and the Americas. "Sonia Korn-Grimani has told the story of courage and the incredible indomitable spirit of a mother who refused to have her children become victims," said Congressman Tom Lantos about the foreign-language editions of the book in 1999. "As a Holocaust survivor, myself, I lived many moments of this powerful tale. The sights, sounds, and smells were very real." As current events remind us, morality and the fundamental convictions of individuals are severely tested by the chaos of war. At a tender age, as Sonia witnessed the horrific struggles of Jews, she was confronted with the complex philosophical question: is a person who saves lives while exploiting them praiseworthy? This dilemma is one of many in this compelling narrative, where innocence and evil battle for control. Sonia's Song is the complex, true story of one refugee's success over all odds, and shows us how heroes may not always be what they seem. Elie Wiesel writes, "Korn-Grimani describes not only suffering she had to endure, but how she succeeded in overcoming it... I am sure that Sonia's Song will touch the hearts of many readers."

This is the first comprehensive book in English on the fate of the homosexuals in Nazi Germany. The author, a German refugee, examines the climate and conditions that gave rise to a vicious campaign against Germany's gays, as directed by Himmler and his SS--persecution that resulted in tens of thousands of arrests and thousands of deaths. In this Nazi crusade, homosexual prisoners were confined to death camps where, forced to wear pink triangles, they constituted the lowest rung in the camp hierarchy. The horror of camp life is described through diaries, previously untranslated documents, and interviews with and letters from survivors, revealing how the anti-homosexual campaign was conducted, the crackpot homophobic fantasies that fueled it, the men who made it possible, and those who were its victims, this chilling book sheds light on a corner of twentieth-century history that has been hidden in the shadows much too long.

The dead of an Arctic winter. Whaling ships full of men, stranded in ice. Follow three rescuers in a race against time — and all odds — in this heartpounding true adventure. In 1897, whaling in the Arctic waters off Alaska’s coast was as dangerous as it was lucrative. And in that particular year, winter blasted early, bringing storms and ice packs that caught eight American whale ships and three hundred sailors off guard. Their ships locked in ice, with no means of escape, the whalers had limited provisions on board, and little hope of surviving until warmer temperatures arrived many months later. Here is the incredible story of three men sent by President McKinley to rescue them. The mission? A perilous trek over 1,500 miles of nearly impassable Alaskan terrain, in the bone-chilling months of winter, to secure two herds of reindeer (for food) and find a way to guide them to the whalers before they starve. With the help of photographs and journal entries by one of the rescuers, Martin W. Sandler takes us on every step of their riveting journey, facing raging blizzards, killing cold, injured sled dogs, and setbacks to test the strongest of wills.

Sent to Auschwitz on the first Jewish transport, Rena Kornreich survived the Nazi death camps for over three years. While there she was reunited with her sister Danka. Each day became a struggle to fulfill the promise Rena made to her mother when the family was forced to split apart--a promise to take care of her sister. One of the few Holocaust memoirs about the lives of women in the camps, Rena's Promise is a compelling story of the fleeting human connections that fostered determination and made survival a possibility. From the bonds between mothers, daughters, and sisters, to the links between prisoners, and even prisoners and guards, Rena's Promise reminds us of the humanity and hope that survives inordinate inhumanity.

Whether it's a novel, memoir, diary, poem, or drama, a common thread runs through the literature of the Nazi Holocaust--a "motif of personal testimony to the dearness of humanity." With that perspective the expert authors of Encyclopedia of Holocaust Literature undertake profiling 128 of the most influential first generation authors who either survived, perished, or were closely connected to the Holocaust. Arranged alphabetically by author, the entries are organized into three primary divisions: (1) an opening section on why the author's work is significant or distinctive; (2) a section containing biographical information, followed by (3) a critical examination of the highlights of the author's work. The Encyclopedia is intended for all students and teachers of the Holocaust, regardless of their levels of learning.
