32 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and held by 1,917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Malala Yousafzai was only ten years old when the Taliban took control of her region. They said music was a crime. They said women weren't allowed to go to the market. They said girls couldn't go to school. Raised in a once-peaceful area of Pakistan transformed by terrorism, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes. So she fought for her right to be educated. And on October 9, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause: She was shot point-blank while riding the bus on her way home from school. No one expected her to survive. Now Malala is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. In this Young Readers Edition of her memoir, which includes exclusive photos and material, we hear firsthand the story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world -- and did. Malala's story will open your eyes to another world and will make you believe in hope, truth, miracles and the possibility that one person -- one young person -- can inspire change in her community and beyond

The plot to kill Hitler : Dietrich Bonhoeffer : pastor, spy, unlikely hero by Patricia McCormick( Book )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was April 5, 1943, and the Gestapo would arrive any minute. Dietrich Bonhoeffer had been expecting this day for a long time. He had put his papers in order -- and left a few notes specifically for Hitler's men to see. Two SS agents climbed the stairs and told the boyish-looking Bonhoeffer to come with them. He calmly said good-bye to his parents, put his Bible under his arm, and left. Upstairs there was proof, in his own handwriting, that this quiet young minister was part of a conspiracy to kill Adolf Hitler. This account includes the discovery that Bonhoeffer was one of the first people to provide evidence to the Allies that Jews were being deported to death camps. It takes readers from his privileged early childhood to the studies and travel that would introduce him to peace activists around the world -- eventually putting this gentle, scholarly pacifist on a deadly course to assassinate one of the most ruthless dictators in history

Malalas Schicksal bewegt die Welt. Zum ersten Mal erzählt die jüngste Friedensnobelpreisträgerin nun ihr Leben für jugendliche Leser selbst einfühlsam, aufrüttelnd und direkt. Die damals 15-jährige Malala wollte einfach nur zur Schule gehen - doch für die Taliban haben Mädchen kein Recht auf Bildung. Am 9. Oktober 2012 schossen ihr Terroristen in den Kopf, als sie auf dem Weg von der Schule nach Hause war. Malala hat den Anschlag schwer verletzt überlebt, doch aufgegeben hat sie nicht. Sie setzt ihren Kampf für Bildung unermüdlich fort und ist damit zum Vorbild vieler Jugendlicher auf der ganzen Welt geworden. In einer einzigartigen Zusammenarbeit mit der Bestsellerautorin Patricia McCormick gelingt es Malala auf höchst bewegende Weise und anhand vieler persönlicher Fotos und Dokumente, ihren jungen Lesern ein authentisches Bild von ihrem Leben und den Ereignissen in Pakistan zu vermitteln. Sie berichtet von ihrer Schulzeit und ihren Freundinnen, davon, wie die Anfeindungen der Extremisten täglich zunahmen, wie sie Widerstand leistete und ihr Leben dadurch eine tragische Wendung nahm. Mit vielen Fotos, Karten, Glossar und Zeittafel, um das Verständnis der komplexen Geschichte Pakistans und der Taliban zu erleichtern
