In the spring of 1933, more than 8,000 Jewish musicians, actors, and other artists were expelled from their positions with German orchestras, opera companies, and theater groups. Later that year, the Jüdische Kulturbund, or Jewish Culture Association, was created to allow Jewish artists to perform for Jewish audiences. Here is the riveting and emotional story of Gunther Goldschmidt and Rosemarie Gumpert, two courageous Jewish musicians who struggled to perform under unimaginable circumstances and found themselves falling in love in a country bent on destroying them. A poignant testament to the enduring vitality of music and love even in the harshest times, The Inextinguishable Symphony gives us a compelling look at an important piece of Holocaust history that has gone largely untold. 1.

Here are 12 episodes of the adventures of an English journalist in the American West of the 1870s in this show from the golden age of radio. Frontier Gentleman was a radio western series aimed at adults that aired on CBS radio for one season in 1958. It starred radio veteran John Dehner as J. B. Kendall, a reporter for the London Times. The series followed the adventures of the freelance journalist as he roamed the western United States in search of stories for his newspaper. Kendall often crossed paths with well-known historical figures, such as Jesse James, Calamity Jane, and Wild Bill Hickok. And to survive in those turbulent times, he became as proficient with a gun as he was with a pen. The announcer opened each show with the following: "Herewith, an Englishman's account of life and death in the West. As a reporter for the London Times, he writes his colorful and unusual accounts. But as a man with a gun, he lives and becomes a part of the violent years in the new territories. Now, starring John Dehner, this is the story of J. B. Kendall, frontier gentleman." Frontier Gentleman was written, produced, and directed by Anthony Ellis. The supporting cast included Harry Bartell, Lawrence Dobkin, Virginia Gregg, Joseph Kearns, Jack Moyles, and Vic Perrin. Music was by Wilbur Hatch and Jerry Goldsmith. This collection includes the following episodes: "A Meeting with Sitting Bull" (9 Feb 58), "The Claim Jumpers" (9 Mar 58), "The Actress" (23 Mar 58), "Aces and Eights" (20 Apr 58), "Duel for a School Marm" (1 Jun 58), "Sheriff Belljoy's Prisoner" (8 Jun 58), "The Well" (15 Jun 58), "A Wagon Full of Cats" (10 Aug 58), "The Fastest Gun That Never Was" (17 Aug 58), "A Horse for Kendall" (14 Sep 58), "The Preacher" (19 Oct 58), and "The Rainmaker" (26 Oct 58). 1.

With the election of Donald J. Trump, many people on both the left and right feared that America's 240-year-old grand experiment in democracy was coming to an end, and that Sinclair Lewis' satirical novel, It Can't Happen Here, written during the dark days of the 1930s, could finally be coming true. Is the democratic freedom that the United States symbolizes really secure? Can authoritarianism happen in America? Acclaimed legal scholar, Harvard Professor, and New York Times best-selling author Cass R. Sunstein queried a number of the nation's leading thinkers. In this thought-provoking collection of essays, these distinguished thinkers and theorists explore the lessons of history, how democracies crumble, how propaganda works, and the role of the media, courts, elections, and "fake news" in the modern political landscape - and what the future of the United States may hold.

"What makes Trump immune is that he is not a president within the context of a healthy Republican government. He is a cult leader of a movement that has taken over a political party - and he specifically campaigned on a platform of one-man rule. This fact permeates "Can It Happen Here? . . . which concludes, if you read between the lines, that "it" already has." - New York Times Book Review"Several of the contributors...agree that American politics is susceptible to creeping authoritarianism and provide the intellectual underpinning." - Washington PostWith the election of Donald J.

Wisdom at Work will teach you how to be indispensable in the second half of your working life.'As more people live in good health for longer they are asking themselves what they should do with this new stage of life. In this marvellous book Chip Conley gives them a great answer - rewire don't retire.

Discover the romance of tramp art, folk art made made from discarded wooden cigar boxes, layer upon layer, one notch at a time, by untrained artists using simple tools and recycled materials. Tramp art crafters representing over 40 nationalities carved tramp art in America. It was also practiced throughout the world wherever cigars were smoked. These artists transformed the discarded boxes into pieces of utility and wonder. Never before has the subject been studied in such depth. Over 600 color photographs document 100s of items, ranging from picture frames and mirrors, to boxes, bureaus, and fantasy pieces. The designs and colors reflect a naive sensibility and aesthetic that is at once charming and beautiful. Here is a rich assemblage of the history of the art form and a thorough the study of the artists lives and work. Misguided romantic mythologies long associated with tramp art are dispelled to leave an accurate picture of these noble notchers. A foreword by award-winning author and art historian Barbara Goldsmith sets the stage, and the pages that follow both celebrate the art and deepen our understanding of its roots and practitioners. This book will be treasured by folk art lovers everywhere.
'My Two Cents' is the first book of short stores by New London, CT, writer, Arthur Dean. He writes in his introduction: I have always envied writers who lived through difficult times-war, famine, international intrigue. If they followed the old adage, 'Write what you know,' they had plenty of material. When I first began to write, in my mid-forties, often at 4 or 5 in the morning, I feared that my 'ordinary life,' as a first generation Jewish-American, was far from interesting. Yet, despite my misgivings, I plunged ahead, letting my everyday concerns surface in my writing.' Rabbi Aaron Rosenberg writes, 'You've enjoyed reading Singer, Bellow, Malamud and Potok. Now feast your eyes on the short stories of the 'Dean' of Jewish authors, Artie Dean. A periodontist by vocation, he found his calling writing pieces for The Jewish Leader, the bi-weekly newspaper serving Eastern Connecticut. This versatile writer is equally proficient with fiction and non-fiction, mysteries and reflections, profound insights and humor. You will cherish these writings, especially if your literary taste buds savor contemporary Jewish perspectives on matters as diverse as Israel, synagogue, baby boomers and baseball. Regarding the latter, Dizzy and Daffy Dean enthralled fans in the 20th century. Now is Artie Dean's time. Enjoy!' Also, Marc Goldsmith writes: 'If you want honest and genuine sentiment that touches the heart and soul, sip Artie Dean's My Two Cents slowly. Here you will enjoy writing that resonates with rich and riveting treasure-at once a touching personal diary of emotion, empathy and angst, a reflective biographically driven narrative that flirts with fiction, and a penetrating tribute to the measure of our humanity. Here, regardless of your background and experience, you will find real life full of hopes, fears, dreams, humor, joy, sadness and longing.'
