Lost lives, lost art : Jewish collectors, Nazi art theft, and the quest for justice by Melissa Müller( Book )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The legendary names include Rothschild, Mendelssohn, Bloch-Bauer--distinguished bankers, industrialists, diplomats, and art collectors. Their diverse taste ranged from manuscripts and musical instrushy;ments to paintings by Old Masters and the avant-garde. But their stigma as Jews in Nazi Germany and occupied Europe doomed them to exile or death in Hitler's concentration camps. Here, after years of meticulous research, Melissa Müller (Anne Frank: The Biography) and Monika Tatzkow (Nazi Looted Art) present the tragic, compelling stories of 15 Jewish collectors, the dispersal of their extraordinary collections through forced sale and/or confiscation, and the ongoing efforts of their heirs to recover their inheritance. For every victory in the effort to return these works to their rightful heirs, there are daunting defeats and long court battles. This real-life legal thriller follows works by Rembrandt, Klimt, Pissarro, Kandinsky, and others

9 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1942 Germany, Traudl Junge was a young woman with dreams of becoming a ballerina when she was offered the chance of a lifetime. At the age of twenty-two she became private secretary to Adolf Hitler and served him for two and a half years, right up to the bitter end. Junge observed the intimate workings of Hitler's administration, she typed correspondence and speeches, including Hitler's public and private last will and testament; she ate her meals and spent evenings with him; and she was close enough to hear the bomb that was intended to assassinate Hitler in the Wolf's Lair, close enough to smell the bitter almond odor of Eva Braun's cyanide pill. In her intimate, detailed memoir, Junge invites readers to experience day-to-day life with the most horrible dictator of the twentieth century."

A garden of Eden in Hell : the life of Alice Herz-Sommer by Melissa Müller( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alice Herz-Sommer was born in 1903 in Prague, the Prague of the Hapsburgs and of Franz Kafka, a family friend. Her mother was an accomplished pianist and a childhood friend of Gustav Mahler. It became increasingly clear that Alice, too, was musically very gifted and at sixteen she was the youngest member of the masterclass at Prague's German Musical Academy. She soon became one of the best-known pianists in the city." "But little by little her comfortable, bourgeois world began to crumble around her. Even as a child she had suffered from anti-Semitic attacks, but as the Nazi's swept across Europe, anti-Jewish feeling not only intensified but was legitimised. Then, in 1942, Alice's mother was deported. Desperately unhappy, she resolved to learn Chopin's 24 Etudes - the most technically demanding piano pieces she knew - and the complex but beautiful music saved her sanity." "However, a year later, she, too - together with her husband and their six-year-old son - was deported to a concentration camp. But even in Theresienstadt, even when her husband was transported to Auschwitz, music was her salvation. In the course of more than a hundred concerts she gave her fellow-prisoners strength and hope in a world of hunger, pain and death. This is her story, a story of the power of love and of music. But it is also the story of a mother's struggle to create a happy childhood for her beloved only son in the midst of atrocity and barbarism. Of 15,000 children sent to the camp, Raphael was one of the 130 who survived. Today, Alice Herz-Sommer lives in London and she still plays the piano every day."--Jacket

Verlorene Bilder, verlorene Leben : jüdische Sammler und was aus ihren Kunstwerken wurde by Melissa Müller( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in German and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1937 on Jewish collectors were under extraordinary pressure from German official and unofficial sources to surrender their priceless collections. Collectors reluctantly agreed to one-sided sales of masterpieces at ludicrously low prices in exchange for a precious exit permit for themselves or a member of their family. This book traces the dispersal of these collections and follow the fate of the collectors. Inevitably, their collections were confiscated by German officials (Jacques Goudstikker), sold by Nazi party member art dealers (Cassirer) or seized for state collections (Bloch-Bauer). Following the war Allied officials made little effort to retrieve these paintings, concentrating their resources on art removed from museums, churches, and palaces. But the collectior s heirs continued to pursue the return of their patrimony, and over the past twenty years have won a number of key court decisions in Europe and the US leading to the restitution of some of the lost art. For every victory, such as the return to the Bloch-Bauer heirs of their family s confiscated Klimts, are defeats and obstinate stonewalling by museums and collectors, who insist that the art was legally acquired in good faith

Alice Herz-Sommer, "Ein Garten Eden inmitten der Hölle" : ein Jahrhundertleben by Melissa Müller( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in German and English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A biography of the Czech-Jewish pianist Alice Herz-Sommer, born in Prague in 1903. Describes the German occupation of Prague in 1939 and the first Nazi anti-Jewish measures. In 1942, Alice's mother Sophie Herz was deported and later killed in Treblinka. In July 1943 Alice and her husband, Leopold Sommer, were deported to Theresienstadt. Describes musical life in the ghetto, to which Alice and her son Stephan (1937-2001) contributed. Stephan took part in the performance of Hans Krása's opera "Brundibár". Throughout her internment in Theresienstadt, Alice gave piano recitals, the last of which took place in April 1945. It was because of her musical talent that the SS did not include Alice and her son on the deportation lists in September-October 1944, when the mass deportations of Theresienstadt's prisoners to various camps resumed. However, her husband was deported in September 1944 and died from typhus in Dachau. After the war, Alice and her son emigrated to the State of Israel, where her son changed his name Stephan to Raphael. Eventually both of them settled in London; Raphael Sommer became a cello virtuoso

Sicily tells the wonderful histories behind the classic dishes but also shows how contemporary chefs and home cooks are reinvigorating recipes in modern ways. The product of years of careful research, Sicily gives a tour of the land<U+2019>s culinary treasures, from the couscous of Lo Capo and the vines of Mt. Etna to the sea salt of Trapani and the black pigs of Mirto. The book gives foolproof instructions for all the cardinal dishes such as Arancini, Pasta with Sardines, and Swordfish Involtini, but there are also plenty of delicious contemporary recipes, such as Eggplant Parmigiana in a Glass, Butternut Squash Caponata, and Cannoli Millefoglie. Complete with travel notes and addresses to plan a trip, Sicily is sure to enchant readers everywhere
