♥ Book Title : In the Shadow of the Smoke Stacks; Total Threat, Resistance, and Movement Mobilization in Sobibor, Treblinka, and Auschwitz
☯ Full Synopsis : "Abstract: Previous social movement research has focused on the role of political opportunities for movement formation and mobilization (Meyer, 2004). However, some scholars have argued that threat can be as much, if not more, of a motivation for movement mobilization (Tilly, 1978). This article continues the recent research on the role of threat for social movements (Almeida, 2003; Einwohner, 2003, & Tester, 2004) by focusing on how threat instigates movement mobilization. For this analysis, I used primary and secondary data sources to build an understanding of the resistance groups that formed in Sobibor, Treblinka, and Auschwitz. In each of these cases, prisoners formed resistance groups, but only Sobibor and Treblinka revolted. Using a Milisian analysis of similarity and difference to answer the question, "why were there revolts in Sobibor and Treblinka, and not in Auschwitz" I found that the prisoners' collective perception that there was a total threat presented by the camp as changing conditions in the camp made it more lethal for the prisoners. This sense of total threat played a crucial role in the decision to resist. Using these cases, this article elaborates on the concept of threat by demonstrating that threat is both subjective and objective, and that it is a separate concept from opportunity that is capable of both encouraging and deterring action."Article| Thomas V.

♥ Book Title : Hitler's Shadow War
☯ Full Synopsis : "In Hitler's Shadow War, World War II scholar Donald M. McKale contends that the persecution and murder of the Jews, Slavs, and other groups was Hitler's primary effort during the war, not the conquest of Europe. According to McKale, Hitler and the Nazi leadership used the military campaigns of the war as a cover for a genocidal program that centered on the Final Solution. Hitler continued to commit extensive manpower and materials to this "shadow war" even when Germany was losing the battles of the war's closing years."Article| Donald M. McKale| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Extermination Camp Treblinka
☯ Full Synopsis : "Although Auschwitz is probably the most well known of the Nazi extermination camps, it is Treblinka which is the most notorious. During the 13 months of its existence, 850,000 were robbed and murdered within its precincts. This camp, along with Belzec and Sobibor, also located in Poland, are often neglected and their history little known, despite being the locations where the Germans killed most of Europe's largest Jewish communities. Here, as opposed to Auschwitz, people were not imprisoned for long periods or exploited as labourers, but were killed off as quickly and effectively as possible. This study by a Polish new generation historian examines the structure and history of the camp."Article| Witold Chrostowski| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Light and Shadows
☯ Full Synopsis : "Rich in historical detail, Light and Shadows will transport you to Greece in the 20th century, and the mostly unknown events that occurred in that part of the world. This is a story of love and courage between two people who meet as young children. Their closeness only grows as they become adults. Because they are of different religions they know that marriage between them is not possible. The story begins with the massacre of the Ottoman Greeks and the Population Exchange between Greece and Turkey. The other unknown event is the brutal occupation of northeast Greece by the Bulgarian Occupiers during the second world war. At first the Bulgarians tried to force out the Greek Orthodox, to make room for Bulgarian settlers. They tried to wipe out any vestige of the Greek culture and language. The last phase of their occupation was the transport of the Greek Jews to Treblinka which resulted in their total annihilation. Light and Shadows, the second in the historical fiction series of Greece in the 20th century reveals the untold story of the joys and tragedies that befall the Greek people. It is the story of courage and defiance against overwhelming odds. For those who have read Hidden in Plain Sight the first in this series, Light and Shadows presents Rebecca, a Jewish woman very different than Anna. Rebecca chooses a radically different path for herself after the war. Light and Shadows also introduces Andreas a Greek Orthodox man who suffers from PTSD after witnessing his family's death as a young boy during the Turkish genocide of the Ottoman Greeks.Light and Shadows begins in 1922 Smyrna, a beautiful cosmopolitan city in Turkey. The Serafis family disregards the rumors of the approaching Turkish cavalry, due to the presence of 27 war ships belonging to the Great Powers that are anchored in their harbor. Surely they will be safe with that protection. Unfortunately the economic interests of the Great Powers particularly their dependence on oil causes them to turn their backs on the Christians living in Smyrna, resulting in a brutal massacre. In 1941, the Solomons, a Jewish family has lived in Greece for centuries. The Axis divide Greece between its allies. The town of Kavala is given to the Bulgarians. Rebecca, the youngest daughter has never married because her family did not have enough means to provide a dowry for her. She and her family have no idea of the fate that awaits them at the hands of the Bulgarians who are aligned with the Nazis.Light and Shadows tells the story of the two children Andreas and Rebecca who meet after Andreas have been orphaned. Rebecca rescues him, finding a family who agrees to raise him as their son. As so begins a life long friendship between the two children which lasts until adulthood and the take over of Greece by the Axis Powers in World War II. The path of their lives intertwine during the war, and they each find a unique way to live with the tragedies in their pasts."Article| Karen Batshaw| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Archetype of Shadow in a Split World
☯ Full Synopsis : "The Tenth International Congress for Analytical Psychology was held in West Berlin September 2-9, 1987. Its theme, The Archetype of Shadow in a Split World, was the focus of twenty-five major papers, with prepared responses to fourteen of them. Congress participants were several hundred Jungian analysts from around the world. The theme has a special meaning for our times and, especially, for a Congress set in the divided city of Berlin. There, the Wall is a vivid reminder of East-West divisions and of the countless divisions among humans. Many of these divisions are considered in this book. Some of the papers deal with the collective background of the Congress and its participant's lives. Other papers focus more on intra-psychic and inter-personal divisions as they are manifested clinically."Article| Mary Ann Mattoon| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Operation Reinhard Death Camps, Revised and Expanded Edition
☯ Full Synopsis : "Under the code name Operation Reinhard, more than one and a half million Jews were murdered between 1942 and 1943 in the concentration camps of Belzec, Sobibor, and Treblinka, located in Nazi-occupied Poland. Unlike more well-known camps, which were used both for slave labor and extermination, these camps existed purely to murder Jews. Few victims survived to tell their stories, and the camps were largely forgotten after they were dismantled in 1943. The Operation Reinhard Death Camps bears eloquent witness to this horrific tragedy. This newly revised and expanded edition includes new material on the history of the Jews under German occupation in Poland; the execution and timing of Operation Reinhard; information about the ghettos in Lublin, Warsaw, Krakow, Radom, and Galicia; and updated numbers of the victims who were murdered during deportations. In addition to documenting the horror of the camps, Yitzhak Arad recounts the stories of those courageous enough to struggle against the Nazis and their "final solution." Arad's work retrieves the experiences of Operation Reinhard's victims and survivors from obscurity and exposes a terrible chapter in humanity’s history."Article| Yitzhak Arad| Statement ..."
