Master race : the Lebensborn experiment in Nazi Germany by Catrine Clay( Book )

13 editions published between 1966 and 1996 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the run-up to the Second World War, Heinrich Himmler embarked on Lebensborn, his obsessive programme to populate the Thousand Year German Reich with pureblooded Aryan men and women - while the death camps were disposing of Jews, homosexuals and the other 'sub-humans' enumerated by Hitler in Mein Kampf." "When the Germans invaded Poland, Himmler's SS discovered many blonde, blue-eyed Polish children - the image of the ideal Aryan. Himmler had an estimated 200,000 of them stolen as they walked home from school or played in village squares. They were transported to camps and tested to gauge their racial quality. If they passed they were first 'Germanized' and then placed with good Nazi families; those who did not measure up were used as forced labour or sent to camps that specialised in killing children." "Now, some of these 'perfect Aryans' tell their stories, recalling the shock and confusion of discovering their real backgrounds and the emotional scars they have never been able to obliterate."--BOOK JACKET
The book of the British Library by Michael Leapman( Book )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As well as holding many of the world's most prized cultural treasures, the British Library is the repository of the nation's collective memory. Owing its origin to the generosity and far-sightedness of a handful of eighteenth-century scholars and book lovers, the Library's extensive collections now incorporate not only books and manuscripts but paintings, photographs, maps, sound recordings, newspapers, stamps, historic documents and more. Its holdings stand at 150 million items, increasing year by year. They constitute an unparalleled record of human achievement throughout history. In words and stunning images, this book tells the story of the Library's creation and development and explores the most significant items in its care. These include Magna Carta, Shakespeare's first Folio, Gutenberg's Bible, manuscripts of masterpieces such as Beowulf and Jane Eyre and of fine music, notably Handel's Messiah. Among its treasures are the earliest world maps and works inspired by all the great religions, many of them sumptuously illustrated. And in recent years the Library has made a point of acquiring the professional and personal archives of contemporary writers, actors and photographers. Revealed here, too, are some of its less expected artifacts, including Beethoven's tuning fork, celestial and terrestrial globes and quirky nineteenth-century advertisements for freak shows and patent medicines. The result is a book that will enlighten, delight and surprise its readers, reflecting the qualities of the institution it celebrates."--Page 2 of cover
