Mumbai- Vinee 'My sister is an avid reader, while I was never much into books. When I first heard about Night by Elie Wiesel on the Oprah show, my sister had already gotten the book. At the very start of the book, I had to keep it down since I was very young then and the thoughts and the images, the book created in my mind, haunted me. I did pick up the book later and it became the first book I've ever read and became a bench mark for my reading.
It is a record of a Holocaust survivor describing the suffering he and his family had to go through and how he survived it.The entire family was captured and sent to a concentration camp.The man's father was dragged right infront of him and there was nothing he could do yet he survived each torturous day...and ended up alive. After his release he kept a record of all his traumatic experiences and published it.What stays with you in the book is his inspiration and willpower to survive...He lived not only to tell his Holocaust tale but lived a life after that too.
The book gives us a perspective about our own problems without demeaning them yet making you feel if other people could get through, then so could we!
This book opened my eyes and made me empathetic to the fact that everyone is suffering or going through something. So if you know someone who is suffering and is not prepared to open up just yet, this book taught me to be patient and be there for people even without knowing the why, what, where...' #eliewiesel#night#wwii#WWII#ww2#Jew#jews#history#holocaustsurvivor#holocaust#holocaustliterature#memoir#culturetripbooks#autobiography#germany#Romania#neverforget#readingisfundamemtal#booksph#thoughtcatalog#riotgrams#nobelpeaceprize#nobelprize#nobelpeaceprizewinner#bookfeaturepage#bookstagramfeature#bookblog#powerfulwords#igreads#bookstagram
Here’s some photos from the Dixon event back in late June. This event was very productive for the unit as we practiced infantry drill and tactics such as rifle drill and grenade tossing. The after action report for this was done from the perspective of 5 Kompanies commanding officer, Leutnant Günter Wilhelm Von Raabe. Enjoy! ———————————————————————June 21st, 1938
I have had the pleasure of meeting my men, and becoming aquainted with them. They all seem to be in great spirits, and are devoted to the regiment as well as the nation. It is refreshing as there had been much uneasiness within the capital and to know that our unit brings smiles to the people with parades, and drilling. Most of them are young, but we have our share of "old hens", who had their share in the previous lot. Most on the Western Front.... I feel that there is something building within them. A chance to get back at those dastardly French once and for all.
I lead a patrol just the over day, we were joking with the idea of fishing, and perhaps presenting such a bounty to the Company Cook. Unfortunately no such event prevailed, and we mostly ran into thorn bushes and frogs. Eventually we found a clearing with a beautiful view of the opposing river front and took a temporary rest. I handed my field glasses to the men as they could take a look at the 'enemy' of geese and ducks that we lovingly named Frenchmen.

#losangelescentrallibrary also hosts art exhibits and they currently have two great ones. Jose Ramirez: A su propia tierra / In His Own Soil w photography by #garyleonardphoto is an explosion of color, beauty, life, people and, politics. A local chicano artist Jose Ramirez forces you to look and feel, I loved this sometimes shocking, sometimes touching, but constantly beautiful exhibit. Very different, but, to me, extremely interesting is On Assignment: Ansel Adams in Los Angeles. We of course all know his extreme landscapes, I don’t remember ever seeing a human being in his photos, but here they’re everywhere and photographed as beautifully and monumentally as those landscapes. In 1940 California became one of the biggest suppliers of airplanes in WW2, people migrated out here in huge numbers, particularly around LA, to work in this new industry and a magazine hired #anseladams to do a big photo story which is the basis for this exhibit. A brilliant look into a specific moment in time, in a specific field, with a specific group of migrants. Both exhibits actually worked perfectly in the library setting - you wanted to learn more about the subjects after viewing the art 😉. Both exhibits are open til October. #actor#performer#viewer#film#movies#tv#stage#theatre#casting#art#library#photography#joseramirezart#artexhibit#chicanoart#airplaneindustry#ww2#losangeles#dwntwnla#migrants#feedyoursoul
