March 27, 2012

Welcome to a new feature of my blog where I’d list books from a certain category which you can download for free.
I call this feature Tightwad Tuesday because I’m a tightwad…and it’s Tuesday.

For the Kindle:

Free Kindle eBook The Remnant - Stories of the Jewish Resistance in WWII by Othniel J. Seiden The Remnant – Stories of the Jewish Resistance in WWII (Boomer Book Series) by Othniel J. Seiden

After researching the transcripts of the Nuremburg Trials and interviewing ‘The Remnant’ or Jewish survivors of the holocaust, many still living in Israel; Othniel Seiden was compelled to write their startling and remarkable stories of World War II. In this stunning and compelling historical novel about the Jews who were able to remain free and fight, Seiden documents their survival, their suffering, their missions and their guerrilla warfare tactics against the Nazi occupation forces.

Also, well documented, the tragedy of Kiev and now infamous ravine of Babi Yar where it is thought that nearly a million people, Jews and non-Jews alike were massacred. These brave few escaped the certain death of their co-religionists by acts of bravery and sheer determination to live. The myth that the Jewish people ‘went to their deaths like sheep to slaughter. . .’ is put to rest forever in the stories of “The Remnant.”

Free Kindle eBook: Light a Candle by Kristina Andersen

Light a Candle by Kristina Andersen

In Denmark, in 1943, many heroes were created: the top Nazi who did his best to ensure that almost all of Denmark’s Jews escaped to safety, the ordinary Danish people who risked everything to help, and the reluctant German soldiers who looked the other way so the Jews could escape. This short story deals with the true story of what happened, as well as telling the story of a brave friendship between Erich, a German soldier, and his Jewish friends.

This story will appeal to anyone who enjoys an interesting read, as well as students of history, World War II and religion. It is suitable for adults and mature young adults. The approximate word count is 2,800 words.

    I’m of Danish heritage and married to a Jewish man whose great-aunt was killed in the Holocaust, so Light a Candle is a story I definitely want to read. Alas, I have a nook and it is not available for that device (yet).
