New Memoir Describes Boy’s Journey During Holocaust’s Horrors – book by Dr. Lewis Reznik

“I consider this type of literature to be essential to the understanding of the Holocaust and its manifold implications.”

–Prof. Elie Wiesel, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, author of “Night”

“A powerful book… Reading the personal details has an impact you may not expect. No histrionics – just emotionally loaded facts. I know Dr. Lew Reznik and his eyes silently confirm the contents. I strongly suggest you read A Boy’s Holocaust.”

–Steve Reich, winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for musical composition

As Lewis Reznik was a boy coming of age, Nazi killing squads were sweeping the Polish countryside, slaughtering Jews such as his father. Eventually his sister, grandmother and other relatives are killed as the Nazis continue their relentless search for Jews. Reznik and his family faced challenges and horrors in a ghetto the Germans created, then as they were forced to live off the land for almost two years after fleeing into the forest. Although the author repressed memories of these events for more than half a century, that does not diminish their power.

A Boy’s Holocaust, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is an inspiring tale that reveals the power of family bonds to hold fast even while facing unimaginable evil. As the author writes, “Surviving this dark era makes it possible for me to appreciate any joy or success life brings, no matter how infinitesimal or fleeting. Luck was on my side, but peace of mind continues to elude me.” Reznik’s loving description of his early days in a small, poor town and the charity shown to others contrasts sharply with the events that follow, such as the day the Nazis rounded up all the Jewish men in town and executed them.

Although many paid the ultimate price during the holocaust, the author also recounts moments of bravery. A Gentile man argues with a soldier that a young orphan be allowed to keep his few belongings in the ghetto. A mother being led to execution with her two children throws sand in the face of a Nazi soldier, which allows one son to escape. Farmers allow evacuees to stay in their barns and give them food. The author’s unforgettable journey ends with a trip to America and its promise of freedom and the chance to begin a new life.

The author, now a retired dentist, speaks to school and community groups about the lessons of the Holocaust and tutors boys preparing for the Bar Mitzvah. He earned his high school diploma at age 23 and received degrees from the University of Connecticut, Long Island University and Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery. One of his daughters inspired him to write this book.

New Release Puts Health Management Into the Hands of the Patient – book by Carl E. Speicher, MD

Managing one’s health is an important aspect of modern life. A growing number of people live into their 80s, 90s or even 100 by staying well. This guide to medical knowledge provides health recommendations that have been shown to work, derived from medical information validated by scientific studies as well as the opinion of medical experts. The first chapter offers tips on using genetic heritage and lifestyle, such as sleep, diet and mental attitude, to achieve optimal health and prevent disease.

Stories in New Release Bring High School’s Hallowed Past To Life – book by Donald Daily

Arsenal Technical High School helped shape a generation of students – as well as teachers and administrators – who came through its doors from the early 1950s to 1985. The author, who worked 33 years as a teacher, administrator and counselor with the Indianapolis Public School System, spent most of them at Arsenal Tech. Take a walk down memory lane with the true stories told about this historic school. When Daily began at Arsenal Tech, it was the largest high school in the state (and third largest in the nation), with a faculty of 300.

The stories in Memories of Arsenal Tech, published by Dog Ear Publishing, loosely follow the author’s career path, starting with teaching at a junior high school, serving as a guidance counselor at Arsenal Tech High School, being appointed Tech Junior High principal and dean of boys at the high school, serving as consultant with the Neighborhood Youth Corps and finishing as guidance counselor at the high school. Daily details such events as going head-to-head with the music department chairman about a conflict with a test, giving lifesaving blood to the principal, close calls in driver’s education, and regretting the dress code that required he wear a tie when he tried to break up a cafeteria brawl and one of the fighters grabbed his tie.

Before author Donald Daily spent more than 30 years with the Indianapolis Public School System, he joined the Navy Reserve in 1942, becoming an ensign two years later. The Illinois native remained in the active reserves until his retirement in 1968. He served in the Pacific during World War II and the Korean War. He continues to write.

Non-Fiction Release Presents New View of Creationism through the Dimensions of the Universe – book by Pam Powers

Traditional theories on the book of Genesis have based themselves in evolution; Pam Powers has taken the book of Genesis and presented a new view of Creationism—one based upon the various dimensions of the universe, such as relativity and quantum physics.  Powers bases this theory on in-depth study of the scripture and a deep, spiritual relationship with the word of God.

In addition to the author’s years of Biblical study, she has also spent a great deal of time examining the works of Danish theologian Soren Kierkegaard, with an emphasis on his book The Sickness Unto Death.  Powers has taken the wisdom from these tomes and drawn interesting and powerful conclusions about the theory of Creation as well as the nature of sin and humanity.  Complex, compelling, and comprehensively researched, The New Face of Creationism is a must-read for those seeking answers  about their faith.

The New Face of Creationism, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is Pam Powers’ second foray into religious writing.  Powers is a longtime Lutheran who began her delve into religious study and Judeo-Christian beliefs from the time of Abraham.   She has no formal theological training, but she has faith that “any believer guided by the Holy Spirit is in a valid position to speak the Word of God with authority.”

New Release Provides Helpful Tips and Tricks for Safe Driving – book by Morad A. Zad

Every year, thousands of lives are lost due to automobile accidents—mostly due to carelessness or inattention on the part of the drivers.  Author Morad A. Zad hopes to help the average driver become more attentive and more cautious with his new book, The Untold Rules of Driving.  This book provides many helpful hints and necessary reminders for the novice driver as well as those who are more experienced.  He touches on the various risk factors one finds behind the wheel, and the ways that damage can be minimized if an accident is unavoidable.

Zad’s suggestions are practical and easily implemented, from the suggestion to consider everyone “blind and deaf” in order to remember one is responsible for one’s own safety to his tutorial on making an inescapable accident as safe as possible.  He uses wit to make the text more fun, but it doesn’t undermine the seriousness of his message—you are responsible for your actions behind the wheel, and you are responsible for your reactions to the actions of other drivers.

The Untold Rules of Driving, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is Morad A. Zad’s first book.  He has spent a great deal of time compiling his thoughts and suggestions on making the roads a safer place to travel, and his love of driving shines through.  He considers himself a natural born driver—“I am not a stunt driver, I don’t do wonders or tricks, I just like driving whether on street, road, mountain or in the countryside.” It is his hope that “(r)eading this book and spreading the word will save lives.”

Non-Stop Adventure with Exploration of Self-Determination – book by Matthew Gold

In a not-too-distant future, technology promises to solve any problem. Sentient robots, known as dolls, cook our food, clean our homes, watch our children, and provide companionship–but some have another function. They train as secret agents to keep the public safe. However, most people don’t know that the dolls have a secret: Each comes from a human mind, bought and sold on the black market. Rebecca, one of the dolls, performs highly dangerous tasks for the shadowy organization that employs her. This fascinating tale follows Rebecca as she trains for her new life.
In The Wonders at Your Feet, published by Dog Ear Publishing, a chance meeting brings FBI agent Dexter into Rebecca’s complex web of deception and a campaign of assassination of murderers who thought they had gotten away with their crimes. As he searches for a missing person who ran away to the Academy – the center where Rebecca trains – the agent learns things that could reveal the truth of the dolls… and change society forever. Their stories become intertwined, as a growing number of bodies and intrigue follow Rebecca and the other dolls. But only Rebecca and her organization stand between life continuing as it always has and chaos when the public learns the truth.

This is the exciting debut novel by Portsmouth, New Hampshire-based author Matthew Gold, and is the first volume of the The Academy series. “I have always been fascinated by the promise and risks associated with trans-humanism,” said Gold. “My new series brings the new opportunities that robots offer together with the moral and ethical challenges that freedom brings, along with the unintended consequences of one-way decisions. Oh, and there’s lots of adventure too!”
