Bosques' War : How a Mexican Diplomat Saved 40,000 From the Nazis (And Maybe Prevented World War III) by Richard Grabman( )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nearly unknown, even in Mexico, Bosques outwitted Spanish fascists, the Gestapo and even Japanese spies as he successfully whisked tens of thousands--Spanish Republicans, entire Jewish communities, British agents, Resistance leaders and many others--from certain death in Nazi Occupied Vichy France. Casablanca was only a Hollywood version of one very small piece of a complex dangerous operation largely organized and run by Bosques from his Mexican consular office. Bosques--who would later play an essential role in defusing the Cuban Missile Crisis--was interviewed about his diplomatic career when h

Relying on Mexican and foreign sources, the book sees the ""Cristiada"" less as a ""Catholic"" insurgency than as
Lancandon Journal - 1969 : From the Journals of Dimitar Krustev: Artist - Explorer by Dimitŭr Krŭstev( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bulgarian-born artist Dimitar Krustrev is considered a?classical realist"?a portraitist in the tradition of the European?old masters". In the late 20th century, while other U.S. artists and émigrés like Krustev turned inward, exploring their own psyche, Dimitar's artistic explorations took a very different turn. As an art teacher in Iowa, Krustev was well-known for leading students through the museums of Europe, but his artistic vision was never constrained by the tra-ditions of the old world, nor even by those of the mid-America. Dimitar's portraiture was of people seldom seen outside the
