It's 1944 when the twin sisters arrive at Auschwitz with their mother and grandfather. In their benighted new world, Pearl and Stasha Zagorski take refuge in their identical natures, comforting themselves with the private language and shared games of their childhood. As part of the experimental population of twins known as Mengele's Zoo, the girls experience privileges and horrors unknown to others, and they find themselves changed, stripped of the personalities they once shared, their identities altered by the burdens of guilt and pain. That winter, at a concert orchestrated by Mengele, Pearl disappears. Stasha grieves for her twin, but clings to the possibility that Pearl remains alive. When the camp is liberated by the Red Army, she and her companion Feliks - a boy bent on vengeance for his own lost twin - travel through Poland's devastation. Undeterred by injury, starvation, or the chaos around them, motivated by equal parts danger and hope, they encounter hostile villagers, Jewish resistance fighters, and fellow refugees, their quest enabled by the notion that Mengele may be captured and brought to justice within the ruins of the Warsaw Zoo. As the young survivors discover what has become of the world, they must try to imagine a future within it.

MISCHLING: Ein Kind sucht seine Identität. Das ist nicht einfach, denn der Vater ist Jude, die Mutter stammt aus einer deutschnationalen Familie. Als nichtjüdisch bei den einen, als Schandfleck bei den anderen ist das Kind überall ein Außenseiter. Das Leben im Nachkriegsösterreich war geprägt von der geheimen Immernochakzeptanz des Nationalsozialismus, die bis heute besteht und beim „richtigen“ Anlass wie eine Pestbeule aufbricht. Die Geschichte spielt in Kärnten, aber dieses Kärnten ist überall ... Bei einem Israel-Aufenthalt lernt das Kind den Kibbuzarzt Rosen, ein Naziopfer wie der Vater des Kindes, kennen. Es kehrt aber heim und heiratet einen Deutschen, der verschweigt, dass sein Vater bei der SS war. Die Schwiegermutter propagiert die „Auschwitzlüge“. Die Ehe zerbricht, Rosen kommt zu Besuch und bittet das Kind, mit ihm zu kommen und argumentiert mit dem alttestamentarischen „Buch Ruth“ (Ruth war keine Jüdin, wurde aber Stammmutter des Hauses David). Schließlich befreit sich das Kind aus der Verstrickung seiner Eltern, bleibt bei Rosen, nimmt den Namen Ruth und die Identität einer Jüdin an. Das Buch ist ein Roman, dessen Wesen der wahre Kern ist. Unterdrückte Wahrheit findet irgendwann ihren Weg ans Licht.

Mischling is a collection of poems that chronicles the history of an Italian-Jewish family rooting themselves in America. Under the atrocities of the Holocaust in Romania and the wave of xenophobia towards Italian immigrants, these poems call into question the meaning of ethnicity and identity as each succeeding generation endeavors to memorialize the past.

In 1989, a North Korean dissident writer, known to us only by the pseudonym Bandi, began to write a series of stories about life under Kim Il-sung's totalitarian regime. Smuggled out of North Korea and set for publication around the world in 2017, The Accusation provides a unique and shocking window on this most secretive of countries. Bandi's profound, deeply moving, vividly characterised stories tell of ordinary men and women facing the terrible absurdity of daily life in North Korea: a factory supervisor caught between loyalty to an old friend and loyalty to the Party; a woman struggling to feed her husband through the great famine; the staunch Party man whose actor son reveals to him the absurd theatre of their reality; the mother raising her child in a world where the all-pervasive propaganda is the very stuff of childhood nightmare. The Accusation is a heartbreaking portrayal of the realities of life in North Korea. It is also a reminder that humanity can sustain hope even in the most desperate of circumstances - and that the courage of free thought has a power far beyond those seek to suppress it.

In February 1943 the Gestapo arrested approximately 10,000 Jews remaining in Berlin. Most died at Auschwitz. Two thousand of those Jews, however, had non-Jewish partners and were locked into a collection center on a street called Rosenstrasse. As news of the surprise arrest pulsed through the city, hundreds of Gentile spouses, mostly women, hurried to the Rosenstrasse in protest. A chant broke out: "Give us our husbands back." Over the course of a week protesters vied with the Gestapo for control of the street. Now and again armed SS guards sent the women scrambling for cover with threats that they would shoot. After a week the Gestapo released these Jews, almost all of whom survived the war. The Rosenstrasse Protest was the triumphant climax of ten years of resistance by intermarried couples to Nazi efforts to destroy their families. In fact, ninety-eight percent of German Jews who did not go into hiding and who survived Nazism lived in mixed marriages. Why did Hitler give in to the protesters? Using interviews with survivors and thousands of Nazi records never before examined in detail, Nathan Stoltzfus identifies the power of a special type of resistance--the determination to risk one's own life for the life of loved ones. A "resistance of the heart..."
