Travels with Herodotus

Travels with Herodotus

by Ryszard Kapuscinski
translated by Klara Glowczewska
Knopf , June 2007

Kapucinski saw more, and more clearly, than nearly any writer one can think to name. Few have written more beautifully of unspeakable things. Few have had his courage, almost none his talent. His books changed the way many of us think about nonfiction... When the last page of this book is turned, note how much smaller and colder the world now seems with Kapuscinski gone. – Tom Bissell, New York Times Book Review

Who Will Write Our History?: Emanuel Ringelblum, the Warsaw Ghetto, and the Oyneg Shabes Archive (The Helen and Martin Schwartz Lectures in Jewish Studies)

by Samuel D. Kassow
Indiana University Press , July 2007

In 1940, the historian Emanuel Ringelblum established a clandestine organization in occupied Warsaw to study and document all facets of Jewish life in wartime Poland and to compile an archive that would preserve its history for posterity. The book tells the gripping story of a determination to use historical scholarship and the collection of documents to resist Nazi oppression. A stunning revelation of the enduring spirit of the decimated residents of the Warsaw Ghetto. – Rita Kohn, NUVO Weekly, August 8, 2007

They Called Me Mayer July. Painted Memories of a Jewish Childhood in Poland before the Holocaust

by Mayer Kirshenblatt
University of California Press

It is best through personal stories that we can grasp the world of our fathers which the Nazis destroyed. Mayer Kirshenblatt has a unique gift for evocation of the past in his simple and beautiful paintings. Each one tells a story. Together they make up a world. – Jan T. Gross, author of Neighbors: A joyous and deeply satisfying immersion in the lost world of prewar Poland Jewry. – Ann Kirschner, author of Sala's Gift: My Mother's Holocaust Story
