|Last Stop Australia: A New Voice of the Holocaust, by Johanna Altmann|
|In this unforgettable memoir, Austrian Holocaust survivor, Johanna Altmann recounts the horrors and tragedies that she and her loved ones were forced to face. Her tale encompasses suffering, hope, resistance and, most of all, remembering.
Just as we should never forget the horrors of the Holocaust, we should also never forget the heroes of the Holocaust, such as those celebrated in this story. They chose to risk their comfort, their homes, and even their lives and those of their families to help save thousands of Jews.
This is a story of courage and humanity, of life and hope, that transcends the painful realities of the Holocaust without disrespecting its catastrophe….

|New Grand Tour, by Godfrey Hodgson|
|The great European cities that made our world…
Godfrey Hodgson’s New Grand Tour includes ten sketches of European cities, each of which has contributed something to the ferment, the still dangerous brew of European civilization.
Each will have something, even if only a distinct and rich way of life of its own, to contribute in the future.
Each essay reflects upon what moves and intrigues the author about the history, literature, politics, past and future of the city and the flavour of its way of life.
Together they are intended to paint an original portrait of the old and the new Europe.
Praise for Godfrey Hodgson
