They have no graves, no markers of ever having existed. The millions of people who were murdered by the Nazis live on only in the memories of the survivors – those that had survivors. In his seventy-ninth year, Andor Schwartz was driven to record the lives of his family and friends who perished. Writing with the instincts of a born storyteller, Andor takes us back to the world of his childhood in rural Hungary in the years leading up to the Second World War. His love of nature and country life, his friendships, the harvests, the Jewish festivals, the age-old customs, now lost, are all evoked with an intense vitality, before the dark clouds of evil obliterated the sunshine of this Arcadian childhood. We live with him through the horrors of the Holocaust, on the run in Budapest, evading death time and time again under the protection of his Malach (angel), whose name had been given to him by his father on their separation. Andor survived, but his entire family perished. He takes us to Israel and then to Australia, where he prospered, his children had children, and the cycle of life returned to its natural and proper order. “Possessing a memory of extraordinary fidelity and vividness, Andor Schwartz has succeeded, almost miraculously, in bringing back to life the fascinating world of his family and of pre-war Orthodox Hungarian Jewry. I could not put it down.”—Robert Manne Andor Schwartz was born in Hungary in 1924. He survived the Second World War in Budapest, although his whole family was killed, before marrying Margaret (Baba) Keimovits, one of the few survivors from their area. They fled to Israel when the communists came to power in 1949. After ten years of working the land, they migrated to Melbourne, where he became a dairy farmer and a successful property developer.

Gundaroo Valley and Village residents from the 1940s and 1950s recount their experience of the place, the people and the community of this small rural village thirty kilometres north of Canberra. The first of the three volumes in the boxed set focuses on the farming community and the social settings of the time. The second presents a picture of Cork Street, the main street where the shops and services were centred and the third volume explores the side streets of residences, churches and the school. Material from interviews with over sixty people were used to describe the buildings and the public spaces in Gundaroo at the time, and the lives of the families and colourful characters who occupied them. Narration and transcribed direct speech, together with hundreds of photographs, are blended together to present a fulsome account of the era as well as the place. Photo rich and with a comprehensive index, these volumes are a goldmine of information for the family historian as well as the social history researcher.

"The school that prays together stays together. After almost half a decade to substantiate these words, we are undaunted, undivided, and more formidable than ever as we seek to glorify His name and fulfill His mission." This glimpse inside one of the nation's top 50 Catholic Schools illustrates how an institution will flourish under God's rule and guidance. We are in a partnership with God and our contract is to teach as He taught following the gospel message. "In a world where media attention is focused on radical and often anti-Christian issues, where personal agendas are the catalyst for the degradation and destruction of the moral and ethical backbone of our country, I embrace each new day in a Catholic Christian school where we begin our morning with two essential and fundamental truths: "The Lord's Prayer" and "The Pledge of Allegiance." "He is here and in every school each day; the difference at Bishop T. K. Gorman Catholic Schools is that while others choose to exile Him, we exalt Him. We are not going gently into any good night; instead, we are marching onward as Christian soldiers to trumpet our message: One nation, one school, and one family under God, INDIVISIBLE.
