The peacekeepers = Le prix de la paix by Paul Cowan( Visual )

Provides an intimate and dramatic portrait of the struggle to save a failed state. Follows the determined and often desparate maneuvers to avert another Rwandan disaster, this time in the Democratic Republic of Congo (the DRC). We are with the peacekeepers in the "crisis room" as they balance the risk of loss of life on the ground with the enormous sums of money required from uncertain donor countries. And we are with UN troops as the northeast Congo erupts and the future of the DRC, if not all of central Africa, hangs in the balance

An orphan in history : retrieving a Jewish legacy by Paul Cowan( Book )

5 editions published between 1982 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

You are about to embark on a wondrous voyage through time and culture. The journey carries you from the privileged world of Park Avenue to nineteenth-century Lithuania, turn-of-the-century Chicago, a contemporary Israeli kibbutz, and the timeless world of New York City's Lower East Side. Journey's end occurs in the Jewish year 5743 on Manhattan's Upper West Side, just crosstown and a lifetime away from where Paul Cowan's complicated, halting trip toward faith begins. Paul Cowan grows up unaware that he is a descendant of rabbis. In one generation five thousand years of religion and culture have been lost. Like millions of immigrant families, Lou and Polly Cowan pay for the prosperity with their pasts. When they die in a tragic fire, Paul begins a search for that part of his parents that had perished in America. The quest for an ancestral legacy by the American, Paul Cowan, becomes a rite of passage for the Jew who emerges Saul Cohen. Relatives like Jacob Cohen, the used cement bag dealer, and Modie Spiegel, Sr., the mail order magnate, come to life in the author's warm and touching recreation of an odyssey through immigrant America. - Jacket flap

Les 18 fugitives by Amer Shomali( Visual )

in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

En 1987, au début de la première intifada, des habitants du village de Beit Sahour, en Cisjordanie occupée, achètent dix-huit vaches et créent une coopérative laitière. Ces intellectuels militants ignorent tout de l'élevage et du fonctionnement d'une laiterie. Leur but : arriver à l'autosuffisance alimentaire et ne plus dépendre de l'économie israélienne. Après quelques tâtonnements dans leur formation, les apprentis fermiers produisent du lait de qualité pour toute la région de Bethléem. Mais ce succès irrite les autorités israéliennes qui ordonnent la fermeture de la coopérative. Ë Beit Sahour, la résistance s'organise et les vaches sont cachées chez les habitants. Un astucieux mélange de séquences documentaires, dans lesquelles témoignent les vrais protagonistes, et de parenthèses d'animation, qui font revivre les vaches. (source : ADAV)
