"I Held the Sun in My Hands" is the story of a young girl raised in a traditional Jewish family in Hungary prior to and during WWII. When Germany occupied Hungary on March 19th, 1944, Erika Jacoby was deported to Auschwitz, together with her mother. She was among the youngest that escaped the selection of Dr .Mengele and together with her mother, who was among the oldest, she endured and outlasted the atrocities and deprivations of the Nazi persecutors. In her book she describes how the teachings and values that she absorbed and incorporated into her life in her home helped her survive Auschwitz and the other concentration camps. She writes movingly about her painful disappointments in the behavior of her fellow human beings, while never losing her faith in God. This unshakable trust in the divine personal protection inspired others as well not to give up hope. In her memoir we witness how this young girl took upon herself the enormous responsibility for her mother's survival, and the impact of that on their relationship after the war and, indeed, throughout their lives. The author, a clinical social worker, examines this relationship with much insight and compassion. This book is a remarkable account of one person's resiliency, ability to cope with adversity and survive not only physically but also spiritually.

The Song of the Sparrow takes us into the identification and basic care of our backyard friends and then goes beyond. Find out how to keep them happy and returning to your yard. Learn to listen to them and hear what they are telling you. Birds are God's messengers to mankind. They are in the Bible, carrying His words to us. And they are with us everyday, reminding us that just as God sees and loves the little sparrow so, too, does He see and love each one of us. The Song of the Sparrow was born out of Pamela Kern's personal experience with a special bird visitation in her backyard. Soon she heard of others who had also been so blessed. She has gathered these stories and more so you, too, can hear the birds sing!
