Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

No Past Tense by D.Z. Stone

This is not a Holocaust book as much as a historic perspective of two remarkable people who lived through the Holocaust.  

Kati and Willi Salcer experience things no human being should have to experience.  As a history teacher I was sadly well versed in the horrors of the Holocaust but that was an in general kind of knowledge.  The lives of Kati and Willi brought home a more personal knowledge and perhaps due to the more personal nature the knowledge was all the more horrific.

These two people underwent things beyond our imagination and came out the other side both strong and hopeful.   Their accomplishments to go from penniless to successful while dealing with the trauma of their lives is remarkable.

The book is neither easy to read or a comfortable read but it is worth reading. 

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
