What Papa Told Me, written by the granddaughter of a Holocaust survivor, is the story of Murray, a young Jewish boy from Poland whose courage and sheer will to live helped him survive eight different labor and concentration camps in the Holocaust, start a new life in America, and keep a family intact in the aftermath of his wife's suicide. "What Papa Told Me" has been endorsed by Elie Wiesel, author of "Night," as well as the Yad Vashem museum in Jerusalem and recently won two honorable mention book awards from The 2011 Eric Hoffer Award and the 2011 New York Book Festival Award. What sets this Holocaust book apart from others is that it offers a fresh perspective of the Holocaust -- that of a third generation. A story of loss and despair, the book hinges on hope and survival.

"Cipora Hurwitz (Fela Rozensztajn) was less than six years old when the Second World War erupted. All at once the life of her tranquil family became a Hell. The eldest son survived by the skin of his teeth by fleeing to the Soviet Union. The second son was murdered when only sixteen. The parents, by great efforts, succeeded in hiding their little daughter and thereby save (sic) her life -- but they themselves were unable to escape the hands of the murderers. Cipora, as yet a young child and an orphan, was miraculously saved after surviving the Budzyn camps and the Majdanek extermination camp. The author relates the story of her life during the Holocaust to a delegation of Hashomer Hatzair youth and Israeli High School students on a mission to the death camps in Poland. Concurrently, she presents her testimony on what transpired to her family and friends who were exterminated, thus paying tribute to their memory." -- back cover.

In the tradition of The Red Tent, The Fifth Mountain, and The Mists of Avalon comes this absorbing historical novel that reimagines the life of one of the Bible's most revered women, the prophetess Deborah, and her epic journey to fulfill her destiny. Deborah's father dreamed that his daughter would one day become a prophet of the God of the Israelites. But the social and religious mores of her time dictated that a woman must marry—even against her will—and obey her husband. When Deborah is forced into an engagement with the violent son of her local judge, the young Hebrew woman rebels, determined to forge a new path. Captivated by the notion of transforming herself into a man to escape the arranged marriage and fulfill her father's dream, Deborah embarks upon an epic journey across the desert to find a mysterious elixirist rumored to be blessed with the gift of turning women into men. It is a journey that proves increasingly perilous—filled with wild beasts, lustful men, unscrupulous priests, and warring tribesmen. Yet Deborah discovers that she is not alone; an unlikely coterie of lepers, slaves, Moabite traders, and even a dead tiger come to her aid and defense along the way. Part traditional biblical fiction, part adventure, Deborah Rising is a captivating tale about the early life of one of the most famous figures from the Old Testament—a woman of courage and spirit whose battle to overcome discrimination, sexism, and paternalism speaks to women's lives today.

In November 1938 on The Night of the Broken Glass, the Jewish people of Germany are terrified as Hitler's men shatter their store windows, steal and destroy their belongings, and arrest many Jewish fathers and brothers. Parents fear for their own lives but their focus is on protecting their children. When England arranges to take the children out of Germany by train, the Kindertransport is organized and parents scramble to get places on the trains for their young family members, worried about what the future will hold. Soon, trains filled with Jewish children escaping the Nazis chug over the border into Holland, where they are ferried across the English Channel to England and to freedom. But for Peter, the shy violin player, his sister Becca, and his friends Stephen and Hans, life in England holds challenges as well. Peter’s friend Eva, who did not get a seat on the Kindertransport, is left to the evil plans of Hitler. Peter, working his musician’s hands raw at a farm in Coventry, wonders if they should have stayed and fought back instead of escaping. When the Coventry farm is bombed and Nazis have reached England, Peter feels he has nothing left. He decides it’s time to stand and fight Hitler. Peter returns to Germany to join the Jewish underground resistance, search for the mother and sister he left behind in Berlin, and rescue his childhood friend Eva.

While investigating the murder of a Marine veteran at a motorcycle rally, reporter Ben Teller infiltrates the Mormon Temple and uncovers a dark secret that could determine the U.S. presidential elections. Initial Readers' Reviews on Amazon.com: 5.0 out of 5 stars Great Political Thriller, July 23, 2012 By T.J. D "TJ" (IN United States) The Mormon Candidate by Avraham Azrieli is a fast-paced political thriller that will have you wanting to turn the page until the very end. The book takes readers past politics and into the world of the Mormon Church. It is an eye-opening discovery of just what the church is about and why they choose to stay so secretive. While many political thrillers tend to rehash the same cliches, this book goes beyond a typical political thriller to provide the reader with a new angle. The Mormon Candidate is well written, and more importantly, well researched to present a realistic picture of the Mormon Church. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves political thrillers, but also to those who just love to read a good story. 5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpectedly Good, July 22, 2012 By heap I have to admit, I didn't think I'd enjoy this book; I practically knew nothing about Mormons, and all the books I've read on the same genre usually involve the Catholic Church. However, "The Mormon Candidate" was a surprisingly fresh and exciting take on politics and religion; I just had to finish it right away. Fluid and always interesting, this book just reeled me in with its unexpected twists, drama, and characters who are described so vividly I could imagine them next to me. 5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps Your Fingers Crossed Till The End, July 21, 2012 By Jude Hickmann It's been long time that I felt fully satisfied after reading a book. I should appreciate the way Avraham unfolds the mystery behind the motorcycle accident, the book is adventurous, and no dip in excitement. I basically have great interest in stories that speak about politics and Avraham exactly triggered this excitement in me. I would feel that all readers, after reading this book, would have experienced the same kind of feeling I had. I would again start reading this book and am sure even if we read multiple times, it will bring the same excitement as in the beginning. Avraham Azrieli had become one of my favorite authors. 4.0 out of 5 stars Politically Relevant Action, July 20, 2012 By Mitch Wyatt "The Mormon Candidate" is a rare book in that it manages to be both highly entertaining and highly relevant to the current political climate. Ben Teller's unyielding investigation of a suspicious accidental motorcycle death enhances the excitement of the overall story. Azrieli has done a staggering amount of research to make the facts of the book as accurate as possible. All of the scriptures listed, and the descriptions of individual aspects of the church are essentially dead-on. Considering the parallels of the book to real life, absolutely anyone who has any interest in politics or the Mormon Church will quickly find themselves taken away by this interesting story []. 5.0 out of 5 stars Dan Brown and James Patterson Collide, July 19, 2012 By Penny Brien (Higley, AZ United States) What an amazing story this is. It is the DaVinci Code of the Mormon Church with the James Patterson flair for adventure and mysterious twists. Don't start reading this book unless you have the time to finish it because once you start reading you won't be able to put it down. It enthralls you from the first page and sends you on a roller coaster of adventure. Ben Teller is a tenacious reporter who will just not let go of this story until he has all the answers and the twists and turns have the reader curious to know all the answers as well. Wonderfully well written and worth every bit of time expended in reading it. I would recommend this book to any one who enjoys authors such as Dan Brown, David Baldacci and James Patterson; because Avraham Azrieli is in their leag

When Bella Kurant was fifteen, she lived through the German bombing of Warsaw, Poland, at the beginning of WWII. After witnessing those horrors, Bella returned home to her parents in Skrzynno, seeking shelter and safety. Bella found neither shelter nor safety for six long years. In October 1942, the SS and the Einsatzgruppen liquidated the Jews of Skrzynno. Escaping her hometown, Bella began her torturous journey to freedom. She was incarcerated in many ghettos and labor camps from 1942 until her liberation in 1945: the Radom Ghetto, Szydlowiec Ghetto, Wolanów Labor Camp, Blizin Labor Camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau for a short time, Hindenburg Labor Camp, Dora-Nordhausen Camp, and finally to the hellish Bergen-Belsen Camp with its mountains of dead bodies. In those labor camps, Bella sewed uniforms, painted signs, and welded for the Nazis. Along the way, she endured death journeys on foot and by train. Yet despite her own pain and guilt, Bella saved the lives of two especially fragile women. When Bergen-Belsen was liberated on April 15, 1945, Bella remained there, waiting for news of surviving family members. Despite her depression, she assisted other survivors in locating their families. Best of all she fell in love at first sight with Paul Fox, a Holocaust survivor from Włocławek, Poland. In 1946, the couple married and immigrated to the United States, where Bella finally found shelter and safety. Their child, Elan, was born in 1948. Although coping with many difficulties, the family eventually prospered in San Francisco, opening a kosher deli and a catering business. After Paul’s death, Bella married Henry Slamovich, a Schindler Jew. Bella and Henry live in San Francisco surrounded by their loving children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. The life story of this gitte neshuma, beautiful soul, will be an inspiration.
