            From famine to freedom, how a young boy fled Chairman Mao's China to a new life in Australia Andrew Kwong was only eight when he witnessed his first execution. The desperate scene left him sleepless, anxious and doubtful about his fervour as a revolutionary in Mao's new China. Ye...t he knew if he devoted himself to the Party and its Chairman he would be saved. That's what his teacher told him. Months later, it was his own father on trial. This time the sentence was banishment to a re-education camp, not death. Yet it left the family tainted, despised, and with few means of survival during the terrible years of persecution and famine known as the Great Leap Forward. Escape seemed the only solution, and it would be twelve-year-old Andrew who undertook the perilous journey first. This is the poignant, resonant story of a young boy's awakening - to survival, education, fulfilment, and eventually to a new life of freedom in Australia.

            Carefully piecing together the personal letters of Alice 'Leisel' Schwab, Escaping Nazi Germany tells the important story of one woman's emigration from Heilbron to England. From the decision to leave her family and emigrate alone, to gaining her independence as a shop worker and... surviving the Blitz, to the reunion with her brother and parents in England and shared grief as they learn about the fate of family members who died in the Holocaust, her story provides powerful insight into both the everyday realities of German-Jewish refugees in Britain and the ability of letters and life-writing to create transnational networks during times of trauma and separation. Elegantly written and deeply researched, Joachim Schloer's emphatic and unflinching re-telling of Alice Schwab's life sheds new light on the Jewish experience of persecution during the Holocaust and adds nuances to current debates on emigration, memory, and identity. This book is an essential primary resource for scholars of modern European history and Jewish studies, offering a compelling and intimate route into understanding what it meant to be a Jewish refugee caught up in the tragic and tumultuous events of World War II.

            Thirteen years of reporting from the Middle East - the people and the stories behind the headlines. Carrying just a microphone and camera, the multi-award winning video and print journalist Sophie McNeill, at just 32, has reported from the warzones of the Middle East for more tha...n a decade. In We Can't Say We Didn't Know, Sophie tells the human stories of devastation - and hope - behind the headlines. Her account is riveting and moving, focusing on the stories of the people she's met - children, families, doctors, soldiers, rescue workers, community leaders and countless refugees - at the centre of events. Sophie also explores how social media and the 24-hour news cycle keeps us constantly informed - perhaps to the point of overload. We can't say we didn't know - but then what?
