Remembering the Holocaust by Michael E Stevens( )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These fourteen interviews of Holocaust survivors who settled in Wisconsin assign names and faces to what might otherwise be an abstract reckoning of terror and inhumanity. They describe the richness and variety of pre-war Jewish life in Europe; the advent of proscriptive laws, arrests, and deportation; the unspeakable horrors of the Nazi camps; and ultimately the liberation and postwar experiences of the survivors. They show how Jews in different parts of Europe experienced the Holocaust - ranging from Holland and Germany, where Jews were integrated into the nation's educated and professional classes, to Poland and Lithuania, where there had long existed a tradition of overt anti-Semitism. All suffered for their ethnic origins or religious beliefs, yet no two stories are alike. The few who survived Dachau and Auschwitz have very different stories to tell than those who were interned in Italy or who lived in comparatively peaceful exile in China. Remembering the Holocaust helps us to see the survivors as individuals, each with his or her own unique perspective, rather than primarily as victims."--BOOK JACKET

As if it were glory : Robert Beecham's Civil War from the Iron Brigade to the Black regiments by R. K Beecham( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Beecham recounts his Civil War experiences, both as an enlisted man in the fabled Iron Brigade and as an officer commanding a newly-raised African American unit. In addition to telling his exciting account, Beecham describes the daily life of the Civil War soldier. His stories range from lively accounts of foraging expeditions to describing conditions in military hospitals. In his narrative, Beecham celebrates the ingenuity of the enlisted man at the expense of officers who are often arrogant or incompetent. He also chides the altered recollections of fellow veterans who remember only triumphs and forget defeats

Yesterday's future : the twentieth century begins( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yesterday's Future: The Twentieth Century Begins, the fifth volume in the Voices of the Wisconsin Past series, shows how the men and women of Wisconsin viewed the approach of the twentieth century. They reflected on America's past accomplishments and speculated on the future." "Journalists, scholars, religious leaders, and even schoolchildren offered predictions. Some predictions proved quite accurate, such as increased life expectancy through better medicine, central air conditioning, and air travel, while others, such as free university education for all and communication with Martians, did not." "The nearly one hundred items that appear here are taken from newspapers, magazines, and other materials that were published in Wisconsin at the turn of the century. These articles and essays - some wildly funny and engaging, others somber and thoughtful - offer a window on the hopes and fears of our forebears at a moment of great change."--BOOK JACKET

The making of pioneer Wisconsin : voices of early settlers by Michael E Stevens( )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Making of Pioneer Wisconsin tells the story of pioneer Wisconsin in the words of those who were there. From the mid 1830s through the 1850s more than a half million people came to the territory and state. Through letters, diaries, newspapers, and other documents, this book lets the men, women, and even children tell their own stories. The writers did not know what their own futures would bring and approached life in this new place with both excitement and trepidation. Their stories let us know what it felt like to be an immigrant on a packed ship crossing the ocean; to be a 16-year-old girl riding in a wagon heading west; or to be a mother living the Lake Superior region who lost her child at birth. An unusual piece is a manual written by a Wisconsin pioneer published in Germany. Translated into English here, it offers "how-to" advice to European immigrants who plan to come to Wisconsin. The Making of Pioneer Wisconsin, drawn from the words of ordinary citizens, offers an account unmediated by the historian's narrative, and in doing so, provides the reader with the authentic voices of Wisconsin's pioneers."--Provided by publisher
