Trudi la naine by Ursula Hegi Summary

Trudi Montag vit à Burgdorf près de Düsseldorf. Trudi est naine. Souvent seule, sujette à mille et une brimades, elle passe son temps à observer ceux qui ne la voient pas. Trudi raconte les autres, jour après jour, dans leurs secrets les plus sombres et les plus inavouables. Au fur et à mesure que s'accroît le pouvoir d'Hitler, elle nous dit ce que chacun choisit de se rappeler ou d'oublier. La résistance à la barbarie pour les uns, le mensonge et la compromission pour les autres. De la défaite de 1918 jusqu'au silence collectif sous le nazisme, c'est tout un pan de l'histoire allemande qu'évoque Ursula Hegi au fil d'une narration éblouissante et audacieuse.

Stones from the River by Ursula Hegi Summary

From the acclaimed author of Floating in My Mother’s Palm and Children and Fire, a stunning story about ordinary people living in extraordinary times—“epic, daring, magnificent, the product of a defining and mesmerizing vision” (Los Angeles Times). Trudi Montag is a Zwerg—a dwarf—short, undesirable, different, the voice of anyone who has ever tried to fit in. Eventually she learns that being different is a secret that all humans share—from her mother who flees into madness, to her friend Georg whose parents pretend he’s a girl, to the Jews Trudi harbors in her cellar. Ursula Hegi brings us a timeless and unforgettable story in Trudi and a small town, weaving together a profound tapestry of emotional power, humanity, and truth.

Brûlures d'enfance by Ursula Hegi Summary

Quand une femme doit assumer sa vocation d'institutrice à l'heure où la barbarie contamine le quotidien de ses élèves Allemagne, hiver 1934. L'incendie qui a dévasté, un an plus tôt, le Reichstag hante encore tous les esprits. Dans le petit village de Burgdorf, Thekla Jansen, une jeune institutrice, tente de protéger ses élèves contre la peur et la propagande nazie qui sévissent. Interdictions des livres et discours intempestifs du Führer à la radio bouleversent le quotidien de la classe, et Thekla, convaincue qu'Hitler ne pourra rester longtemps au pouvoir, n'a d'autre choix que de céder à l'ingérence croissante du Troisième Reich. Mais tandis que Thekla affronte ses démons les plus sombres, un secret resurgit de son passé, qui met en péril tout ce qu'elle a tenté de préserver. Après Trudi la naine (Galaade, 2007 ; Prix des lecteurs du Livre de Poche en 2010), qui avait planté le décor du village imaginaire de Burgdorf et ses personnages inoubliables, Ursula Hegi raconte, avec Brûlures d'enfance, dans une langue lyrique et pleine de vigueur, le destin d'une jeune enseignante passionnée et sa lutte pour se réapproprier son courage.

This is my poetry and photography book. Each poem is a stone from the river of life that Hashem has directed me to be a remembrance of the wonderful and great things He has done for me. I don't consider myself to know more than others, or to be more enlightened, I am still a vessel in His great hands, learning and practicing what He directs me into. I pray that somewhere in these covers there is a blessing for you the reader and in that blessing you will give all honor and glory to our L-rd and Savior Yeshua.

From Jesus to the Church by Craig A. Evans Summary

This study traces the tumultuous history of the very first followers of Jesus. Specifically, author Craig A. Evans looks at how a chain of events from 3-7 CE--beginning with Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem and subsequent crucifixion and ending with the destruction of the temple—led to the separation between the followers of Jesus and other Jews. Topics include the following: 1) whether Jesus actually intended to found the Christian Church; 2) the ways in which Jesus’s proclamation of the “Kingdom of God” relate to the Christian Church; 3) the role of James, brother of Jesus, in the new movement in Jerusalem; 4) the tension between James and Paul in the matter of law and works; 5) the conflict between the families and followers of Jesus and those of the high priest Annas before the destruction of the temple; and 6) the aftermath of the Jewish rebellion, whereby the Church moved away from its Jewish roots. An appendix further explores the reasons behind the rift between the Jesus movement and the synagogue.

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury Summary

451 degrés Fahrenheit représentent la température à laquelle un livre s'enflamme et se consume. Dans cette société future où la lecture, source de questionnement et de réflexion, est considérée comme un acte antisocial, un corps spécial de pompiers est chargé de brûler tous les livres, dont la détention est interdite pour le bien collectif. Montag, le pompier pyromane, se met pourtant à rêver d'un monde différent, qui ne bannirait pas la littérature et l'imaginaire au profit d'un bonheur immédiatement consommable. Il devient dès lors un dangereux criminel, impitoyablement poursuivi par une société qui désavoue son passé.

Le Crime et le Châtiment by Fiodor Dostoïevski,Victor Derély Summary

« Au commencement de juillet, par une soirée excessivement chaude, un jeune homme sortit de la petite chambre meublée qu’il occupait sous le toit d’une grande maison de cinq étages, dans le péréoulok S..., et, lentement, d’un air irrésolu, il se dirigea vers le pont de K... Dans l’escalier, il eut la chance de ne pas rencontrer sa logeuse. Elle habitait à l’étage au-dessous, et sa cuisine, dont la porte était presque constamment ouverte, donnait sur l’escalier. Quand il avait à sortir, le jeune homme était donc obligé de passer sous le feu de l’ennemi, et chaque fois il éprouvait une maladive sensation de crainte qui l’humiliait et lui faisait froncer le sourcil. Il devait pas mal d’argent à sa logeuse et avait peur de la rencontrer. Ce n’était pas que le malheur l’eût intimidé ou brisé, loin de là ; mais depuis quelque temps il se trouvait dans un état d’agacement nerveux voisin de l’hypocondrie. S’isolant, se renfermant en lui-même, il en était venu à fuir non pas seulement la rencontre de sa logeuse, mais tout rapport avec ses semblables. La pauvreté l’écrasait ; toutefois il avait cessé, en dernier lieu, d’y être sensible. Il avait complètement renoncé à ses occupations journalières. Au fond, il se moquait de sa logeuse et des mesures qu’elle pouvait prendre contre lui. Mais être arrêté dans l’escalier, entendre toutes sortes de sottises dont il n’avait cure, subir des réclamations, des menaces, des plaintes, répondre par des défaites, des excuses, des mensonges, – non, mieux valait s’esquiver sans être vu de personne, se glisser comme un chat le long de l’escalier. Cette fois, du reste, la crainte de rencontrer sa créancière l’étonna lui-même lorsqu’il fut dans la rue. » Cette version numérique a été réalisée à partir de l'édition traduite par Victor Derély et qui est parue chez Plon en 1884.
