Sentenced to Remember is a memoir by William Kornbluth, a Polish Jew who grew up in the city of Tarnow, survived four concentration camps, and emigrated to America, where he lives today in retirement, lecturing and writing. He and his two brothers, Simon and Natan, are one of the few cases of three brothers surviving together in four successive death camps. This book is not just the story of the Holocaust as told through the eyes of a survivor. It is a literary reflection which captures the vanished world of Eastern European Jewry through the everyday events of the 1930s in a Jewish quarter. As Hitler's hate propaganda inflamed the traditional anti-Semitism of the Polish and Ukrainian population, Kornbluth's family grew up, sharing family problems, finding careers, getting married, and surviving in a provincial and dangerous world. The description of the Nazi "selection" days contains some of the most terrifying events in the memoir. Also included is the story of Bill Kornbluth's wife, Edith, another Holocaust survivor, whom he met and married in the United States. Edith's father, Pinia, was respected by the Polish peasants, and they helped him and his family to survive; they lived like animals in the large forests by the estate that Pinia had previously administered. Edith was sent out of the woods to impersonate a Christian servant. Edith's parents were betrayed and shot just weeks before the war's end. Kornbluth's story of the daily life in the death camps is a chilling reminder of the Nazi horrors. This account shows how man was able to keep his dignity in surroundings where torture and death were common occurrences. Finally, Sentenced to Remember is the story of the war's aftermath. Kornbluth and his brothers wandered about Europe, often in danger, until they settled on America as their future home. His sister Bronka's last request, to write of the past, haunted him. This book is the final result.

Throughout his research into memory theory, Nelson Dellis found existing memory improvement guides to be wanting—overcomplicated, dry, and stodgy. So he decided to write a book that is approachable and fun, centered on what people actually need to remember. In Remember It!, Dellis teaches us how to make the most of our memory, using his competition-winning techniques. Presenting the information in a user-friendly way, Dellis offers bite-size chapters, addressing things we wish we could remember but often forget: names, grocery lists, phone numbers, where you left your keys—you name it! This fast-paced, highly illustrated tour of the inner workings of the brain makes improving your memory simple and fun.
Why can't I remember what my parents just asked me to do? Why do I feel stressed out at school when the teacher is writing on the board and talking at the same time? And what can I do about it? Working memory issues affect a huge proportion of kids with learning differences like ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, and ASD. These issues can make them feel frustrated or bored, as working memory and intelligence are two very different things. Kids with working memory problems can also act out in the classroom and at home. In this child-friendly and authoritative guide, international working memory expert Dr Tracy Packiam Alloway walks you through what working memory is, what it feels like to have problems with your working memory, and what you can do about it. She presents key tips and strategies, such as the benefits of eating chocolate or of barefoot running, that will help children both at home and at school, and includes a section at the end for adults describing how we can test for working memory issues.

Laine Tavish is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life in the small town of Angel's Gap, Maryland, as the proprietor of Remember When, an antique treasures and gift shop. At least, that's what everyone in Angel's Gap thinks. They have no idea that she used to be Elaine O'Hara, daughter of the notorious con man Big Jack O'Hara. Or that she grew up moving from place to place, one step ahead of the law. Laine's past has just caught up with her, though - in a very dramatic way. Her long-lost uncle suddenly turned up in her shop, leaving only a cryptic warning before dying in the street, run down by a car. Soon afterward, her home is ransacked. Now it's up to Laine, and a sexy stranger named Max Gannon, to find out who's chasing her, and why. The answer lies in a hidden fortune - a fortune that will change not only Laine's life but also the lives of future generations. And danger and death will surround that fortune for years to come. Until New York City Detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas gets on the case. A thrill-ride of a novel that blends present-day romance and futuristic suspense.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A fascinating exploration of the intricacies of how we remember, why we forget, and what we can do to protect our memories, from the Harvard-trained neuroscientist and bestselling author of Still Alice. “Using her expertise as a neuroscientist and her gifts as a storyteller, Lisa Genova explains the nuances of human memory”—Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, author of How the Mind Works Have you ever felt a crushing wave of panic when you can't for the life of you remember the name of that actor in the movie you saw last week, or you walk into a room only to forget why you went there in the first place? If you're over forty, you're probably not laughing. You might even be worried that these lapses in memory could be an early sign of Alzheimer's or dementia. In reality, for the vast majority of us, these examples of forgetting are completely normal. Why? Because while memory is amazing, it is far from perfect. Our brains aren't designed to remember every name we hear, plan we make, or day we experience. Just because your memory sometimes fails doesn't mean it's broken or succumbing to disease. Forgetting is actually part of being human. In Remember, neuroscientist and acclaimed novelist Lisa Genova delves into how memories are made and how we retrieve them. You'll learn whether forgotten memories are temporarily inaccessible or erased forever and why some memories are built to exist for only a few seconds (like a passcode) while others can last a lifetime (your wedding day). You'll come to appreciate the clear distinction between normal forgetting (where you parked your car) and forgetting due to Alzheimer's (that you own a car). And you'll see how memory is profoundly impacted by meaning, emotion, sleep, stress, and context. Once you understand the language of memory and how it functions, its incredible strengths and maddening weaknesses, its natural vulnerabilities and potential superpowers, you

Story Behind the Book For nearly six years, Rich shared his thoughts about faith and life through his columns in Release magazine. When his first column was published in the spring of 1991, the editors introduced him this way: "Rich not only has a lot to say…he also has a unique way of saying it. And although Mr. Mullins could easily fit into that intellectual bohemian-type category (we’re sure he could hold his own in a discussion with any theologian or philosopher of old), most often, his message is a straightforward call back to the principles of faith. He’s a poet, a scholar, a gentleman, and yes, just a little bit off-center. But that’s why we like him, and are pleased to welcome Rich to Release with this regular column.
