To “Paradise” and Back by Charles Sawikin

Incredible memoir of Chaim Sawikin, a sixteen-year-old Jewish boy who was separated from his family at the start of World War II and then survived in the Soviet labor camp system. As he confronts every life-threatening situation, he draws upon his instincts and resourcefulness, while trying to retain the essential humanity instilled by his parents and his socialist upbringing. With almost every incident turning upon a stroke of luck, Chaim, raised an atheist, begins to see the world as unhinged, devoid of pattern or justice. But the idea that all his and others’ suffering was random, so hard to accept, brings him around to deeper thoughts about the role of fate or God in the world. Finally he looks back on these times with no answers, only more questions.

A Survivor Remembers the Holocaust: The Amazing True Story of Leon Sperling by Marc Garrett

Disclaimer. This is not a book, but rather a 10 page narrative, told to me by a very special man, of perhaps the most riveting, emotional, and courageous account of escaping certain death from the hands of a highly civilized and advanced race of people inexhaustibly determined to exterminate him, 14 year old boy, and his entire race. It is placed here at the Amazon minimum which I wish was zero, simply to tell his story, and remind future generations of the humanity and inhumanity we as a people are capable of, and the hope that each day, we choose the former. Please download and read, and if it doesn’t leave you a better person, a changed person, with a need to share it with a loved one, please simply hit refund.

Revolution of the Mind: Higher Learning among the Bolsheviks, 1918–1929 (Studies of the Harriman Institute) by Michael David-Fox

Using archival materials never previously accessible to Western scholars, Michael David-Fox analyzes Bolshevik Party educational and research initiatives in higher learning after 1917. His fresh consideration of the era of the New Economic Policy and cultural politics after the Revolution explains how new communist institutions rose to parallel and rival conventional higher learning from the Academy of Sciences to the universities. Beginning with the creation of the first party school by intellectuals on the island of Capri in 1909, David-Fox argues, the Bolshevik cultural project was tightly linked to party educational institutions. He provides the first account of the early history and politics of three major institutions founded after the Revolution: Sverdlov Communist University, where the quest to transform everyday life gripped the student movement; the Institute of Red Professors, where the Bolsheviks sought to train a new communist intellectual or red specialist; and the Communist Academy, headquarters for a planned, collectivist, proletarian science.

Filling in the Pieces: A Survival Story of the Holocaust by Izaak Sturm

This autobiography is a compelling tale of an individual who survived the full brunt of the Shoah as a teenager, from the first day of the war in the small town of Dembitz in 1939 to liberation in Bergen Belsen in 1945. The book first provides a nostalgic of Izaak’s prewar life and goes on to detail how his family and community were gradually torn asunder by the Nazi occupation. During the war, Izaak was variously imprisoned in ghettos, work camps, and notorious concentration camps, all the while enduring and witnessing horrific cruelty all around him. Each step of his grueling six year journey is carefully remembered and documented in this transfixing memoir. Despite the magnitude of what Izaak faced, he was able to survive in body and spirit. Preserving the seed of religious life planted by his family and community, he was able to rebuild his entire world.

Mysticism in Nepal and Tibet, The Himalayan Journals of M.G. Hawking: June 2019 Edition Exploratory Anthology by M.G. Hawking

New Release There has long been a deep desire felt by scholars, both past and present, to recover the silent secrets of the ancient cultures of Tibet and Nepal, to trace the background of their prehistoric spiritual development as derived from ever earlier cultures, and then to discover whatever modern manifestations might still exist in the remote margins of that mysterious world. This desire has exerted a powerful pull on the imaginations of Westerners—historians, philologists, Tibetologists, philosophers, physicists, and psi researchers alike.Composed from the journals of explorer M.G. Hawking’s five years in remote areas of the Himalayas, this book transports the reader into regions of our planet that in all history only a handful of people have experienced, a journey that leads to the discovery of the most refined and powerful mystical knowledge possessed by the human race.’Mystical’ adj. 1.1 Having a spiritual significance that transcends human understanding; 1.3 Of hidden or esoteric meaning; 2.0 Inspiring a sense of spiritual mystery, awe, and fascination; 2.1 Concerned with the soul or spirit, rather than with material things; 2.2 Having a spiritual meaning or reality that is neither apparent to the senses nor obvious to the intelligence. Oxford English Dictionary, Oxford University Press, 2nd Ed., 1989.Experience has proven that this mystical knowledge offers the illumination and guidance necessary to create a superlative life, but of which few have a full appreciation. If truly understood through patient study, fully integrated into your core belief system, and practiced with unwavering diligence, this knowledge can wholly transform your experience of this world in every positive way imaginable.Many years ago, on an extended trek into a largely unexplored inner region of the vast wilderness of the Himalayas, Hawking chanced on an unexpected find. In a majestic valley surrounded by towering ice peaks, he encountered a beautiful small village called Siddhalaya. In that community he had the privilege of meeting a number of truly extraordinary men and women. This encounter marked the beginning of sixty-two months Hawking spent in the Himalayan regions of Nepal and Tibet, during which time he kept detailed records of his adventures, experiences, and conversations with those highly enlightened individuals.In association with Hawking, over the past several years our team at Wisdom Masters Press has worked diligently to compose a series of books based on his journals and field notes. This was a daunting assignment; Hawking accumulated a rich treasury of over 14,000 pages of hand-written journal notes, along with another 4,500 pages of field notes. It was a fascinating if formidable task, one that could not have been accomplished without the assistance and encouragement of some of the extraordinary individuals Hawking met in the Himalayas, experiences that filled everyone involved with a deep sense of awe and wonder.About this Book: This volume presents a comprehensive anthology of excerpts from seven books containing detailed narratives of Hawking’s various experiences and conversations, including first-hand accounts of the psychokinetic abilities he witnessed and in-depth descriptions of the esoteric knowledge that made such extraordinary abilities possible. Includes a suggested reading list with book descriptions.New Release, Kindle e-reader page count 182 (estimated, actual page count varies with the reading device used).
