The lamp of hope appears in the form of Truus Wijsmuller, a member of the Dutch resistance movement. Truus smuggles Jewish children from Nazi Germany to countries that are willing to take care of them. When the United Kingdom also offers help, he dares to approach Adolf Eichmann, the man who was involved in the final resolution of the Jewish question. Truus fights against time.

Noe (Sebastian Fitzek)

Sebastian Fitzek: No8photos in the gallery

German master of breast thrillers and his scary story on the border of fiction and reality. Although he wrote the book in 2013, he very authentically described the situation we have today. They call him Noah, he has it tattooed on the palm of his right hand, but he has no idea who he is, where he comes from and why he lives as a homeless man in a blind subway tunnel ten meters underground. He is confused and looks for answers: who can he talk to about it? Is he running away from something, or is he being persecuted by evil forces as his friend from the Oscar hideout tries to persuade him? He begins to search for his own identity and Noah experiences a nightmare. Little by little, he learns of his role in a terrifying global conspiracy that has claimed tens of thousands of lives and threatens all of humanity … It is shocking to read this thriller in 2021, when the COVID-19 pandemic swept the world. In its background, many conspiracy theories abound, similar to the one Fitzek develops in the thriller, but in the real world, fortunately, they remain only in the plane of fiction.

When Genevieve finds out that her mother, Baroness Lillian de Rocheford, has been captured by the Nazis, she realizes that it is only a matter of time before the Gestapo breaks Lillian and obtains information about the impending Allied invasion. The resistance movement is determined to silence the baroness at all costs, but Genevieve refuses to stand idly by as her mother becomes another victim of the war.

Friedrich Pohl: Diseases of bees8photos in the gallery

An extremely important book not only for beekeepers, but for all of us. Yes, it is not only the dreaded diseases and their triggers, such as e.g. Varroa forceps, bee brood plague or tadpole. New types of pathogens, climate change, plant protection products and wax adulteration are also the cause of the weakening of bees and whole hives. But we can all contribute to bee health. In order for bees to survive healthily in urban conditions, close cooperation between beekeepers, their associations and veterinary authorities is essential. This book is helpful in overcoming bee family problems, diagnosing and combating disease. “I offer my knowledge to everyone who advocates for bee health, from” simple “to experienced beekeepers, to institutions and research groups in laboratories, universities and veterinary offices,” says the author.
