Named a Best Book of the Year by The San Francisco Chronicle "Survivor Café...feels like the book Rosner was born to write. Each page is imbued with urgency, with sincerity, with heartache, with heart.... Her words, alongside the words of other survivors of atrocity and their descendants across the globe, can help us build a more humane world." —San Francisco Chronicle As firsthand survivors of many of the twentieth century's most monumental events—the Holocaust, Hiroshima, the Killing Fields—begin to pass away, Survivor Café addresses urgent questions: How do we carry those stories forward? How do we collectively ensure that the horrors of the past are not forgotten? Elizabeth Rosner organizes her book around three trips with her father to Buchenwald concentration camp—in 1983, in 1995, and in 2015—each journey an experience in which personal history confronts both commemoration and memorialization. She explores the echoes of similar legacies among descendants of African American slaves, descendants of Cambodian survivors of the Killing Fields, descendants of survivors of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the effects of 9/11 on the general population. Examining current brain research, Rosner depicts the efforts to understand the intergenerational inheritance of trauma, as well as the intricacies of remembrance in the aftermath of atrocity. Survivor Café becomes a lens for numerous constructs of memory—from museums and commemorative sites to national reconciliation projects to small–group cross–cultural encounters. Beyond preserving the firsthand testimonies of participants and witnesses, individuals and societies must continually take responsibility for learning the painful lessons of the past in order to offer hope for the future. Survivor Café offers a clear–eyed sense of the enormity of our twenty–first–century human inheritance—not only among direct descendants of the Holocaust but also in the shape of our collective responsibility to learn from tragedy, and to keep the ever–changing conversations alive between the past and the present.

Mass trauma events, such as natural disasters, war and torture, affect millions of people every year. Currently, there is no mental health care model with the potential to address the psychological needs of survivors in a cost-effective way. This book presents such a model, along with guidance on its implementation, making it invaluable for both policy-makers and mental health professionals. Building on more than twenty years of extensive research with mass trauma survivors, the authors present a model of traumatic stress to aid understanding of mass trauma and how its psychological impact can be overcome with control-focused behavioral treatment. This text offers a critical review of various controversial issues in the field of psychological trauma in light of recent research findings. Including two structured manuals on earthquake trauma, covering treatment delivery and self-help, the book will be of use to survivors themselves as well as care providers.

"Louis Lozowick (1892-1973), an American painter and printmaker most noted for his depictions of the urban scene, was in many ways a typical cultural figure of the early twentieth century. Born in Ukraine in an era of revolutionary ferment, involved in the artistic adventures of Paris, Berlin, and Moscow in the 1920s, he was one of the earliest links between the international machine aesthetic and the nascent American Precisionist movement." "Set almost wholly in Russia and western Europe, Lozowick's memoirs, published here for the first time, present not only a portrait of the artist as a young man but also a vibrant record of Jewish life in the waning days of the Russian empire. Emigrating to New York himself at age fourteen, Lozowick was aware of two artistic movements in the Russia he left behind: one, "The Wanderers," committed to art as a catalyst for progress; the other, "The World of Art," focused on aesthetics alone. In his visits to Europe in the 1920s, Lozowick acquainted himself with the experiments and aims of other emerging cultural movements. Circulating among Dadaists, writing along with Joyce, Stein, and Picasso for the expatriate magazine Broom, and meeting with Russian Constructivists on their own soil, Lozowick formulated his concept of the Americanization of art and began to depict the urban environment in crisply delineated geometric forms." "Upon his return to the United States, Lozowick helped organize the Machine-Age Exposition of 1927 and wrote and lectured for the Societe Anonyme, Educational Alliance Art School, Menorah Journal, and Theatre Arts Monthly. He also designed the stage set for Georg Kaiser's Gas, one of the first Constructivist productions seen in America. With the onset of the Depression, Lozowick joined the staff of New Masses, the John Reed Club, and the American Artists' Congress. Reflecting a strong commitment to making art relevant to contemporary life, Lozowick's work demonstrates his lifelong allegiance to art's role in mediating the modern conflicts between humanity and technology."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Woman As Survivor

This book is a comprehensive examination of the development of the female figure in Heinrich Boll's fiction. The woman moved from the periphery in his early works to the central role, marked by important changes in her nature. Boll's ideal woman refuses to compromise her individual sense of morality. Even in a materialistic society she alone is able to survive with her innocence and "Nachstenliebe" intact. A significant part of this study focuses upon the numerous parallels that exist between Catharism, a heresy which prevailed in the Middle Ages, and the philosophy Boll embraces in his later works. These insights offer a new interpretive perspective into Boll's works, and in particular his women figures."

In the 1960s, Jimmy Evans was one of Britain's leading safe-blowers, his own boss in an era when London's underworld was dominated by gangs such as the Krays and Richardsons. But in 1964, Jimmy's world fell apart. He discovered that his wife was having an affair with George Foreman, brother of the notorious gangland killer, Freddie Foreman. Jimmy shotgunned George at his front door, and Freddie embarked on a bloody 10-year vendetta of murder, assassination, and arson. Foreman exploited his corrupt relationship with two leading Scotland Yard detectives who were his handlers, protectors, and friends. This title reveals the crooked connections between London's top cops, the gangland bosses, and the serial killer they should have locked away.

The Golitsyns were one of Russia's most powerful families until the Revolution turned their world upside down and life became a battle to survive. Sergei Golitsyn was just eight-years-old, his head full of stories about knights in shining armour, but the reality was a bowl of gruel for supper and panic when there was a knock at the door. Golitsyn longed to be a writer, but in fear of his life he fled Moscow to work on remote construction sites deep in Siberia, before fighting with the Red Army across Europe to Berlin. Written in secret, his memoirs paint a rich and colourful picture of life in Stalin's Russia. Like Tolstoy, Golitsyn tells the story of a family saga - of love and happiness, terror and endurance - while also drawing a panoramic picture of a world that was about to be destroyed.
