♥ Book Title : Ave Maria in Auschwitz
☯ Full Synopsis : "Felicia Weingarten has saved poetic expressions of her life for us in this collection of short stories from WWII Poland and her experiences of surviving the Lodz ghetto and four concentration camps during the Holocaust. The stories are powerful not so much in how they speak to our minds but how they tear into our hearts. We are drawn into Felicia's life vicariously at first, as though a stranger watching from the sidelines. But as each story unfolds, oftentimes with a twist at the end, we are suddenly faced with our own humanity, our own survival, our own actions and our own conscience as human beings. We are led into the darkness holding hands with an innocent, yet hopeful and courageous teenager; we emerge as reflective, perhaps even changed people, because of our human experience shared with Felicia. These are stories that transcend time and place and challenge us to be people of integrity, hope and commitment."Article| Felicia Karo Weingarten| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Hypatia of Alexandria
☯ Full Synopsis : "Hypatiaâe"brilliant mathematician, eloquent Neoplatonist, and a woman renowned for her beautyâe"was brutally murdered by a mob of Christians in Alexandria in 415. She has been a legend ever since. In this engrossing book, Maria Dzielska searches behind the legend to bring us the real story of Hypatia's life and death, and new insight into her colorful world. Historians and poets, Victorian novelists and contemporary feminists have seen Hypatia as a symbolâe"of the waning of classical culture and freedom of inquiry, of the rise of fanatical Christianity, or of sexual freedom. Dzielska shows us why versions of Hypatia's legend have served her champions' purposes, and how they have distorted the true story. She takes us back to the Alexandria of Hypatia's day, with its Library and Museion, pagan cults and the pontificate of Saint Cyril, thriving Jewish community and vibrant Greek culture, and circles of philosophers, mathematicians, astronomers, and militant Christians. Drawing on the letters of Hypatia's most prominent pupil, Synesius of Cyrene, Dzielska constructs a compelling picture of the young philosopher's disciples and her teaching. Finally she plumbs her sources for the facts surrounding Hypatia's cruel death, clarifying what the murder tells us about the tensions of this tumultuous era."Article| Maria Dzielska| Statement ..."
