Genre: History

This book describes how Michael Klein's faith and determination helped him to survive the concentration camps at age 15 and overcome bitterness, the trauma of the Holocaust, and all physical and spiritual obstacles, to become a happy and useful member of society. Dr. Klein portrays the Jews' spiritual resistance to the Germans and their struggle to retain their faith and humanity in the shadow of death. He then portrays his personal struggle back to a normal life, not only the struggle for health and an education, but also to reconcile the tension between the world of a Chassidic teenage boy and the experience of surviving the Nazi death camps. Dr. Klein writes about the events that led to his life being saved by a decision of Oskar Schindler, the German industrialist credited with saving the lives of many Jews, and reveals his Yom Kippur experience that prompted him to "breaking silence" and tell what happened in the camps. Dr. Klein was imprisoned in Auschwitz and Golleschau. After liberation, Dr. Klein spent years recovering from TB. In 1950, he made his way to the United States where he was able to earn a degree in Engineering-Physics at the University of Colorado. He earned his Ph.D in Theoretical Physics at Cornell University in 1962.

The former malaria-infested Pontine swamps in Lazio, south of Rome, had been almost deserted for centuries when Benito Mussolini in 1928 by law decided to drain and cultivate this fertile soil. The enormous project was called Agro Pontino in the years between 1932 and 1938 five new towns were built in Lazio. Eighteen new villages and 3000 new farms were also created. This in-depth study concerns planning and building of one of these towns, Sabaudia, the administrative centre in the region, and its surrounding area. Today this is a prosperous area with a growing population.

"The Indigo Children? Oh yeah . . . I know about them! Wasn't there a movie about that? They're those special kids who do psychic things and who have dark blue auras, right?" If that's your take on the Indigos, then you really need to read this book. The Indigo Children are not super-psychic kids with dark blue auras. In fact, the Indigo moniker has nothing to do with auras or being psychic. Some of these teenagers are actually the ones who are strapping on bombs and bringing guns to school, so you can see that the subject here is far more profound than the sensational hype that often accompanies it. This book is all about the children of our planet, what really might be happening with them, why they do what they do, and what we can do to help them and our educators survive all this. In addition, the Indigos are slowly beginning to join the work force (gasp)! Join Lee Carroll and Jan Tober, the original authors of The Indigo Children, for a profound and frank discussion of this topic, ten years later. After all this time, what do some in higher education say about these kids? What do industry leaders say? Humanity is evolving, so you should definitely be aware of what these individuals are saying. It's time to stop the circus that has been created around this subject and get down to finding out how to help these children survive an earth they don't understand . . . or perhaps it's just you they don't understand. . . . Join the leaders of education and industry who speak out in this book for a peek into the real issues surrounding the Indigos, and perhaps the future of humanity!
