1. A Simple Memoir of My Early Years - Gertrud Jackle
Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £40.00 - Click book title for availability and further details
To the best of my recollection, this is the story of my early years. Like me, it is simple and direct. It was inspired by my daughter Erika, who worked hard to gather the details, and later prepared for publication by my son, Rodney. Many of the essential stories were contributed by my brother Julian, whose memories and experiences were broader than my own. Without them, this memoir could not have been written.
I never intended this project to be a history lesson—just a collection of memories, feelings, challenges, circumstances, and inspirations that led me to Canada, where the family life we all share together began.
I want to pass a message along to my children, grandchildren, and hopefully great-grandchildren:
• Value others on their potential, not their history.
• Never give up. Always hold on to hope. Things will always get better if you do. Always.
• Despite the challenges of my life, I believe I was, and still am, very lucky. I have always felt this—that a guardian angel was watching over me every moment.

3. My Childhood in the Holocaust - Judith Jaegermann
Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £6.95 - Click book title for availability and further details
"My Childhood In The Holocaust" is Judith (Pinczovsky) Jaegermann's account of survival against the Nazi death machine. As a child, when she should have been playing with her dolls and teddy bears, she was fighting off death in the German concentration camps. From Theresienstadt to Auschwitz to Birkenau to Bergen-Belsen, she survived the genocide of 6,000,000 Jews that the world kept quiet about for so many years. For Judith Jaegermann, having spent most of her childhood in the German concentration camps, the trauma of her experience has been like a bomb inside her waiting to explode. Because Mrs. Jaegermann is one of the last surviving eyewitnesses to the Holocaust, she regards it as her duty to tell her story to today's youth. She actively lectures in high schools and universities, or wherever young people gather to listen, telling about the atrocities committed by a deranged society so that something like the Holocaust should never happen again.
