"A scientist governed by numbers and logic, Julian now lives an ordered life of routine and seclusion. ... In contrast, [his sister] Paula has entered the world as ... an espiring opera singer, she is always moving, buoyant with sound. ... Yet both their lives begin to change on a Wednesday, miʹercoles, the day that sounds like miracles."--Jacket

Survivor café : the legacy of trauma and the labyrinth of memory by Elizabeth Rosner( Book )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As survivors of many of the twentieth century's most monumental events--the Holocaust, Hiroshima, the Killing Fields--begin to pass away, Survivor Café addresses urgent questions: How do we carry those stories forward? How do we collectively ensure that the horrors of the past are not forgotten? Elizabeth Rosner organizes her book around three trips with her father to Buchenwald concentration camp--in 1983, in 1995, and in 2015--each journey an experience in which personal history confronts both commemoration and memorialization. She explores the echoes of similar legacies among descendants of African American slaves, descendants of Cambodian survivors of the Killing Fields, descendants of survivors of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the effects of 9/11 on the general population. Examining current brain research, Rosner depicts the efforts to understand the intergenerational inheritance of trauma, as well as the intricacies of remembrance in the aftermath of atrocity. Survivor Café becomes a lens for numerous constructs of memory--from museums and commemorative sites to national reconciliation projects to small-group cross-cultural encounters. Beyond preserving the firsthand testimonies of participants and witnesses, individuals and societies must continually take responsibility for learning the painful lessons of the past in order to offer hope for the future. Survivor Café offers a clear-eyed sense of the enormity of our twenty-first-century human inheritance--not only among direct descendants of the Holocaust but also in the shape of our collective responsibility to learn from tragedy, and to keep the ever-changing conversations alive between the past and the present

Exploring the scientific contributions of Thomas Edison and Charles Proteus Steimetz in upstate New York at the confluence of the Hudson River and its tributary the Mohawk--and the fate of the same place in the mid-sixties--this is a "novel of America, of its great scientific ingenuity and its emotional ambition; one that frames the birth and evolution of its towns against the struggles of its indigenous tribes, the immigrant experience, a country divided, and the technological advancements that ushered in the modern world"--Amazon.com
Gravity by Elizabeth Rosner( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composed over a period of some twenty years, GRAVITY is Rosner's profoundly searching account of her experience as the daughter of Holocaust survivors. In an extraordinarily powerful mix of poetry and prose, Rosner traces the earliest remembered resonances of her parents' past and her dawning awareness of the war history that colored her family home during her youth in Schenectady, New York. She recounts her false starts in raising the subject with her father (a survivor of Buchenwald concentration camp), his piecemeal revelations, and their eventual travels together to the sites of the nightmare in Germany. And she evokes, courageously and heart-wrenchingly, her own search for identity against the gravitational pull of her parents' experience and the traditional upbringing they've given her. GRAVITY reminds us that three-quarters of a century is a blink of an eye, that history happens at home, and that the past is something we all embody, knowingly or not

Gate city by Andrew Hilleman( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This novel is a work of historical fiction that takes place between the years 1892 and 1934 in Omaha, Nebraska, and centers around Tom Dennison, a political boss who ran the city during this period. His exploits included rigging mayoral elections, prostitution, racketeering, bootlegging liquor during prohibition, running illegal gambling halls, and murder. Though he never held public office, he was the most influential man in Omaha politics for the first three decades of the twentieth century. Many of the policies Omaha's current political system are in place today because of him. Arriving in Omaha from Colorado in 1892, Dennison discovers a wide open town and, with newspaper tycoon Edward Rosewater and cowboy mayor James Dahlman at his side, his control of city hall is so absolute that no crime is committed without his blessing and police report to his office for their daily marching orders. Despite his power, Dennison's reign over the city is continually contested by civic reformers, ousted Republicans, and federal investigators who attempt to destroy his machine at every turn. From Colorado gambler to Omaha gangster, from political kingmaker to fallen criminal icon, the story of Tom Dennison is largely forgotten. This novel brings to life of one of the most villainous figures from America's golden age of crime and formative years of contemporary politics

Requisite Parental Involvement: Perceived Impact Upon Student Achievement and School Climate in a Magnet MiddleSchool by Elizabeth Rosner( )

1 edition published in 2014 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Parental involvement is considered important to a child’s education, whether it is working closely with the teacher to aid student learning or volunteering for participation in after school activities. This grounded theory study focuses on stakeholders’ perceptions of requisite parental involvement in a magnet middle school. The three tenets of grounded theory include: the emergent theory from the categories of data; the premise that participants’ behavior has an underlying pattern that will emerge; and assurance that the participants, not the researcher, are the focus of the study. Data was collected from document analysis, interviews with administrators, teachers, a staff member, a community volunteer, and parents; as well as data collected from surveys of parents and teachers from the school. The survey data is both quantitative and qualitative. The data set for this research was comprehensive: 301 pages of correspondence, 48 pages of transcribed interviews, and 18 surveys. The surveys were submitted by both parents and teachers. The 6 teacher surveys submitted represent a return rate of 33.3%; the 12 parent surveys yielded a return rate of 5%. The five concepts that emerged from the data are: Regard, Team, Volunteer Opportunities, Propinquity, and Needs. The results indicate that social and economic capital informs requisite parental involvement in a magnet middle school, and its perceived impact upon student achievement and school climate
