Reign of terror : the Budapest memoirs of Valdemar Langlet, 1944-1945 by Valdemar Langlet( )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The astonishing true story of a Swede in Hungary who stood up to Nazis and saved thousands from the Holocaust. Although the honors awarded Raoul Wallenberg are well deserved, he is only one of the brave individuals'many of whom remain forgotten by history'who saved thousands of Jews in Budapest during World War II. Among those unsung heroes is another Swede, Valdemar Langlet, the first man to create the covert cover of the "protective passport." Entirely without permission or financial support from the Swedish Red Cross, Langlet, a gifted linguist who was able to deal directly with Hungarian officials, issued so-called "Letters of Protection"'imitation passports with official-looking stamps that prevented Hungarian Jews from deportation to the death camps. But when the Germans put their Arrow Cross allies in power, and the approaching Red Army threatened to turn the city into a battleground, Langlet went further'risking his life to find placement for refugees in a range of apartments, castles, countryside estates, convents, and other safe houses throughout Budapest. First by the hundreds, then the thousands. This is the enthralling memoir of a man who took a stand during one of the most terrible episodes in world history, facing not only the dangers of Nazi forces, but also the punishment and rancor of his own country

Escape from the Third Reich : Folke Bernadotte and the white buses by Sune Persson( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2019 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The true story of a risky Swedish mission to liberate thousands of prisoners from the Nazis. The Swedish Red Cross expedition to the German concentration camps in March-April 1945 was the largest rescue effort inside Germany during WWII. Sponsored by the Swedish government and led by Count Bernadotte of Wisborg, the mission became known for its distinctive buses. Each bus was purposely painted entirely white, except for the Red Cross emblem on the side, so that they would not be mistaken for military targets. Due to the chaotic conditions during the last weeks of the war, it is impossible to say exactly how many prisoners were liberated by the expedition, but according to conservative figures, by May 4, 1945, at least 17,000 had been transported to Sweden by the so-called White Buses. Of these, some 8,000 were Danes and Norwegians, around 6,000 were Poles, and more than 2,000 were French citizens. This is the first book to tell the full story of this remarkable and hazardous operation. It also details Bernadotte's harrowing expedition to RavensbrUck concentration camp and his extraordinary negotiations with Heinrich Himmler, the ReichsfUhrer-SS who was in charge of the German concentration camps, and tells how, during the course of these discussions, Himmler also made an offer of German surrender-an offer that was rejected by the Allies. Includes never before published photographs

Contested sovereignties : Government and democracy in Middle Eastern and European perspectives by Elisabeth Özdalga( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between constitutional arrangements and democratic developments has long been a topic of debate among political scientists and jurists. This new book explores these questions with special reference to the Middle East, where political instability and problems related to the consolidation of nation states are particularly acute. Taking the political crisis over the presidential election in Turkey in 2007 as its starting point, the book provides in depth analysis of how these events illustrated the ways in which the constitution and its supporting institutions could be mobilized for narrow and highly controversial political purposes. Questions of state sovereignty are then explored in the cases of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Palestine and Israel, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and Morocco, contrasting them with European examples such as Sweden's constitutional arrangement in relation to its monarchy, and the European Union's current constitutional transformation. This is an important book for students and scholars interested in contemporary and historical perspectives on issues of nation building, state sovereignty and democracy in Europe and the Middle East
