The boy : a Holocaust story by Dan Porat( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in Hebrew and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A cobblestone road. A sunny day. A soldier. A gun. A child, arms high in the air. A moment captured on film. But what is the history behind arguably the most recognizable photograph of the Holocaust? In The Boy: A Holocaust Story, the historian Dan Porat unpacks this split second that was immortalized on film and unravels the stories of the individuals--both Jews and Nazis--associated with it. The Boy presents the stories of three Nazi criminals, ranging in status from SS sergeant to low-ranking SS officer to SS general. It is also the story of two Jewish victims, a teenage girl and a young boy, who encounter these Nazis in Warsaw in the spring of 1943. The book is remarkable in its scope, picking up the lives of these participants in the years preceding World War I and following them to their deaths. One of the Nazis managed to stay at large for twenty-two years. One of the survivors lived long enough to lose a son in the Yom Kippur War. Nearly sixty photographs dispersed throughout help narrate these five lives. And, in keeping with the emotional immediacy of those photographs, Porat has deliberately used a narrative style that, drawing upon extensive research, experience, and oral interviews, places the reader in the middle of unfolding events

101 world heroes by Simon Sebag Montefiore( Book )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in Hebrew and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

101World Heroes is bestselling historian Simon Sebag Montefiore's selection of the ultimate heroes and heroines of world history. Warriors and empresses, statesmen and spies, prophets and conquerors rub shoulders with scientists and poets, explorers and artists, philosophers and actresses across three millennia. Some are very familiar, some have been unjustly neglected. From Alexander the Great to Churchill, from Muhammad to Mozart, from Buddha to Byron, from Aristotle to Elvis, from Joan of Arc to Anne Frank and from Hannibal to Hemingway, they are united not just by the courage, selflessness and genius of their deeds but by their timeless legacies. The adventures of these heroic lives are recorded in a sequence of elegant, entertaining and informative biographies. Each is accompanied by a short essay revealing fascinating-and sometimes bizarre-aspects of the times in which they lived. Thus the pharaoh Rameses the Great divulges the truth about ancient Egyptian royal marriage, Queen Elizabeth I unlocks her cosmetics cabinet, Galileo recounts the history of the telescope, Tchaikovsky tells of the creation of the ballerina, Admiral Nelson reveals how the guns of Trafalgar fired and Marshal Zhukov shows us round the T-34 tank that won the Second World War. Embellished with a sumptuous array of paintings, photographs and diagrams, and dotted with thought provoking quotations from the heroes' writings or speeches, 101World Heroes offers the reader a matchless collection of lives to wonder at and stories to tell our children. Written by a prize-winning historian of the younger generation, handsomely designed and beautifully illustrated-101World Heroes is truly a gift book for all seasons and all ages. It is a treasure-chest of unforgettable characters, lives and facts that everyone should know
Antifragilität : Anleitung für eine Welt, die wir nicht verstehen by Nassim Nicholas Taleb( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in Hebrew and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The acclaimed author of the influential bestseller The Black Swan, Nicholas Nassim Taleb takes a next big step with a deceptively simple concept: the "antifragile." Like the Greek hydra that grows two heads for each one it loses, people, systems, and institutions that are antifragile not only withstand shocks, they benefit from them. In a modern world dominated by chaos and uncertainty, Antifragile is a revolutionary vision from one of the most subversive and important thinkers of our time. Praise for Nicholas Nassim Taleb "[This] is the lesson of Taleb. and also the lesson of our volatile times. There is more courage and heroism in defying the human impulse, in taking the purposeful and painful steps to prepare for the unimaginable."--Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point "[Taleb writes] in a style that owes as much to Stephen Colbert as it does to Michel de Montaigne."--The Wall Street Journal "The most prophetic voice of all. [Taleb is] a genuinely significant philosopher. someone who is able to change the way we view the structure of the world through the strength, originality and veracity of his ideas alone."--GQ "Changed my view of how the world works."--Daniel Kahneman, Nobel laureate"--
