by Fred R. BleakleyThe clock was ticking on the Nazi plan to annihilate the last group of Hungarian Jewry. But after nearly suffocating in an underground bunker, Auschwitz prisoners Ceslav Mordowicz and Arnost Rosin escaped and told Jewish leaders what they had seen. Their testimony in early June, 1944, corroborated earlier hard-to-believe reports of mass killing in Auschwitz by lethal gas and provided eyewitness accounts of record daily arrivals of Hungarian Jews meeting the same fate.

by Carl R PalmCalifornia is one of a kind. Few dispute it. But what are the facts on which this reputation rests? The Great California Story aspires to answer that question in a way not systematically undertaken before. It makes no pretentions to replacing the picture of California that traditional histories typically draw. It aspires instead to amplify and complete that picture. The book has been envisioned from the beginning as an evergreen that should read as freshly ten years from now as it does tod... more
