The Silent Heroes: A Memoir of Holland During World War II is a true story of heroism, survival, and resistance by ordinary people living during extraordinary times.

World War II was marked by fear, despair, and hardship for those living under Nazi occupation. Author Hans Moederzoon van Kuilenburg was a 10-year-old girl living in Amsterdam, when German soldiers invaded Holland in the spring of 1940. The Dutch wanted to stay neutral in the war because its military was no match for the Germans. But within five days, Holland had fallen. The next five years were among the darkest in Dutch history, culminating in the “hunger winter” of 1944, in which 30,000 Dutch people died of hunger and cold.

Ordinary citizens like the author’s father fought back in any way they could to mitigate the German war machine. A civilian supervisor of marine supplies, he stole food and clothing from the Germans to feed and clothe Dutch people in need. Eventually his activities attracted notice and he was imprisoned. Says van Kuilenburg, “My mother, with the help of our family doctor, got him out of the claws of the so feared SS. This is his story and that of other Dutch heroes who risked their own lives to help others.”

About the Book

From a village in the Land of Goshen, a brilliant but physically challenged boy named Yoram manages to make his way into the heart of ancient Egypt.

Firsthand, he witnesses the changing culture of the Children of Israel and the different mindsets of the pharaohs who ascend to the throne.

Connecting the dots between the two histories, Yoram lives through the passions and frustrations that prevail as the weaker young nation falls inevitably into subjugation.

This fascinating novel covers the history of the Hebrew nation from its peak of contentment to its descent into slavery.

Through Yoram’s eyes and tribulations, Who Knew Not Joseph presents a real picture of the human side of that first holocaust. It tells how there indeed came a pharaoh who knew not Joseph (Exodus 1:8).

Fight!: A Practical Guide to the Treatment of Dog-Dog Aggression by Jean Donaldson

177249Fight! offers owners of dog-aggressive canines a wonderfully positive alternative to traditional punishment and intimidation -based training techniques for correcting their dog’s social woes. 

Written by the award-winning author of The Culture Clash, Jean Donaldson breaks down dog-dog aggression into it’s most simplest forms- 1) over-exuberant greeters, 2) proximity sensitivity to other dogs, 3) resource guarding, 4) bullying, 5) play skills deficit, and 6) genetic predisposition. She then takes the reader through each form, discussing the positive training methods that can be used to overcome each, as well as discussing proper training tools and a breakdown of common learning methods used in positive training.

As the owner of a fear-aggressive dog, I’ve read every book, article, pamphlet and beyond that I can get my hands on regarding training techniques that deal with behavior modification. It seems that everyone has their own magic mix of methods that they gather here and there from a common list of books- and near the top of almost every list is Fight!

I’ll add that almost every book on these lists are now out of print, so it’s taken me a while to find the funds to acquire each title, Fight! being my most recent purchase. With such high hopes and downright nerdy excitement, I couldn’t wait to dig in- but unfortunately, I was pretty disappointed with this book. Let me explain.
