READING: Waargebeurde oorlogsmemoir over onvoorwaardelijke moederliefde en de drang om te overleven Drie zwangere Joodse vrouwen belanden tegen het eind van de Tweede Wereldoorlog in Auschwitz. Priska, Rachel en Anka kunnen zichzelf en hun ongeboren kind alleen tegen de gruwelen van het kamp beschermen door hun zwangerschap te verbergen en door te werken in een wapenfabriek. Tijdens een massatransport naar Mauthausen waarbij de helft van de gevangenen sterft, bevallen de sterk ondervoede vrouwen zonder van elkaars bestaan op de hoogte te zijn. Dankzij de hulp van medegevangenen en een enkele meelevende bewaker, overleven zowel de moeders als hun pasgeboren kinderen de laatste oorlogsdagen. Na de oorlog beginnen Priska, Rachel en Anka met hun kinderen een nieuw leven in verschillende uithoeken van de wereld. Op de 65ste bevrijdingsdag van het concentratiekamp Mauthausen komen de kinderen voor het eerst met elkaar in contact. Ter gelegenheid van de 70e bevrijdingsdag in mei 2015 wordt hun opmerkelijke verhaal door Wendy Holden voor de eerste keer verteld.

READING: De wilde orchidee is het dramatische verhaal van de eigenzinnige Russische Lydia Ivanova en haar strijd om te overleven in het tumultueuze, door oorlog geteisterde China van 1928. Lydia en haar beeldschone maar onverantwoordelijke moeder zijn tijdens de revolutie uit Rusland gevlucht, en wonen als berooide outsiders in China. Noodgedwongen slaat Lydia aan het zakkenrollen in de oude Chinese binnenstad en raakt daardoor verstrikt in de netten van de criminele broederschap die wordt gedomineerd door bijzonder wrede triades. Het is Chang An Lo, een jonge idealistische communist, die haar redt en op wie ze hopeloos verliefd wordt. Hij en Lydia staan aan weerszijden van de politieke en sociale scheidslijnen en hun wederzijdse liefde is even onvergeeflijk en schaamtevol in de ogen van de Europeanen als in de ogen van de Chinezen. En hoeveel Chang ook van Lydia houdt, wil hij blijven vechten voor zijn politieke idealen. Een keuze die niet alleen hijzelf, maar ook Lydia bijna met de dood moet bekopen.

Pages 251
ISBN 9780889208148
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Despite two centuries and three major reform movements, mental patients have remained on the outside of the mainstream of society, often living in poverty and violence. Today we are undergoing yet another period of reform and, in a historical first, ex-mental patients, now calling themselves consumers and psychiatric survivors, have been recruited in record numbers by the Ontario government to participate in the change process. A Fragile Revolution investigates the complex relationship between ex-mental patients, the government, the mental health system, and mental health professionals. It also explores how the recent changes in policy have affected that relationship, creating new tensions and new opportunities. Using qualitative interviews with prominent consumer and survivor activists, Everett examines how consumers and survivors define themselves, how they define mental illness, and how their personal experience has been translated into political action. While it is clear that consumers and survivors have affected the rhetoric of reform, they know that words do not equal action. As they struggle to develop their own separate advocacy agenda, they acknowledge that theirs is a fragile revolution, but one that is here to stay.

READING: A multidisciplinary study of why and how Cambodians have come to the US and how they have fared since. Companion to Chan / Not Just Vicitms, UIP 2003, CI 0-252-02799-X (sold 200 copies) Pub date 3/2003 Pb 0-252-07101-8 (sold 350 copies) In this clear, comprehensive, and unflinching study, Sucheng Chan invites us to follow the saga of Cambodian refugees striving to distance themselves from a series of cataclysmic events in their homeland. Survivors tracks not only the Cambodians' flight for life lives but also their battle for self-definition in new American surroundings. Unparalleled in scope, Survivors begins with the Cambodians' experiences under the brutal Khmer Rouge regime, following them through escape to refugee camps in Thailand and finally to the United States, where they try to build new lives in the wake of massive trauma. cultures and deal with rapidly changing gender and intergenerational relations within their own families. Poverty, crime, and racial discrimination all leave impact on their experiences in America, and each is examined in depth. Although written as a history, this is a thoroughly multidisciplinary study, and Chan makes use of research from anthropology, sociology, psychology, medicine, social work, linguistics and education. She also captures the perspective of individual Cambodians. Drawing on interviews with more than fifty community leaders, a hundred government officials, and staff members in volunteer agencies, Survivors synthesizes the literature on Cambodian refugees, many of whom come from varying socioeconomic backgrounds. A major scholarly achievement, Survivors is unique in the Asian American canon for its memorable presentation of cutting-edge research and its interpretation of both sides of the immigration process.
