            The extraordinarily moving memoir by Australian Slovakian Holocaust survivor Magda Hellinger, who saved an untold number of lives at Auschwitz through everyday acts of courage, kindness and ingenuity. In March 1942, twenty-five-year-old kindergarten teacher Magda Hellinger and ne...arly a thousand other young Slovakian women were deported to Poland on the second transportation of Jewish people sent to the Auschwitz concentration camp. The women were told they'd be working at a shoe factory. At Auschwitz the SS soon discovered that by putting Jewish prisoners in charge of the day-to-day running of the accommodation blocks, camp administration and workforces, they could both reduce the number of guards required and deflect the distrust of the prisoner population away from themselves. Magda was one such prisoner selected for leadership and over three years served in many prisoner leader roles, from room leader, to block leader - at one time in charge of the notorious Experimental Block 10 where reproductive experiments were performed on hundreds of women - and eventually camp leader, responsible for 30,000 women. She found herself constantly walking a dangerously fine line: using every possible opportunity to save lives while avoiding suspicion by the SS, and risking torture or execution. Through her bold intelligence, sheer audacity, inner strength and shrewd survival instincts, she was able to rise above the horror and cruelty of the camps and build pivotal relationships with the women under her watch, and even some of Auschwitz's most notorious Nazi senior officers including the Commandant, Josef Kramer. Based on Magda's personal account and completed by her daughter Maya's extensive research, including testimonies from fellow Auschwitz survivors, this awe-inspiring tale offers us incredible insight into human nature, the power of resilience, and the goodness that can shine through even in the most horrific of conditions.

            This beautifully illustrated children's book takes a close look at the lifecycle of water, including how it supports all life forms, how humans harness its power, and why we need to conserve it. Water is essential for life. In fact, 60 percent of an adult human is made up of wate...r! We drink it, bathe in it, and thousands of creatures live in it. Yet, our planet is running desperately low on water, with less than one percent of the water on Earth available to fuel and feed the current population of 7.5 billion people. So dive into the wonderful world of water and find out how you can save this life-giving substance. From raindrops falling from the sky, to rushing rivers and vast oceans full of animals and plants, water is everywhere. Discover how it affects Earth's weather, through rainstorms, snow flurries, and cyclones, and gives life to animals, plants, and humans. Learn how it is used in growing food and in making clothing, as well as how water travels into our homes at the turn of a tap. See the process water goes through when you drink it and how important keeping hydrated is for our health. With stunning photos and illustrations that showcase the beauty and power of water in nature, the cycle of water has never been so exciting. In the face of our planet's climate crisis, saving water is more crucial than ever. Read about how we can use less water and discover how we can reduce water pollution to save life on Earth.

            2020 was a year unlike any other. Still in her first term as prime minister, Jacinda Ardern found herself facing her biggest challenge yet - protecting New Zealanders against a worldwide pandemic. By year's end New Zealand had kept its nerve, protected its borders, and for the mo...st part kept its residents alive and well. In the midst of all this an election was held. Politics in a Pandemic provides a deeper understanding of what happened during the election, which was held in the most difficult circumstances facing New Zealand since the Second World War. It includes contributions from the New Zealander of the Year, Jacinda Ardern, and the Wellingtonian of the Year, epidemiologist Professor Michael Baker, as well as the National Party's Judith Collins, Greens' co-leaders James Shaw and Marama Davidson, ACT's leader David Seymour, the Minister for Covid-19 Response Chris Hipkins, and award-winning journalists Tova O'Brien and Henry Cooke, along with many other reporters, pollsters and academics, together providing 35 perspectives on the election. Personal reflections are complemented by UMR survey results, first-hand campaign accounts, the perspectives of overseas observers, and analysis of everything from political cartoons and billboards to leaders debates, political party funding, policy and populism. It covers the departure of New Zealand First, the return of the Maori Party, nationwide referendums on euthanasia and the legalisation of cannabis, and the Christchurch mosque attacks. But ultimately, the 2020 election was a referendum on Jacinda Ardern's leadership in a time of pandemic. This book explains why she won and what this might mean for the country's future. Politics in a Pandemic is the twelfth in a series of election books going back to 1987 - including The Baubles of Office (2007), Kicking the Tyres (2012), and Stardust and Substance (2018) - essential for anyone interested in New Zealand's government and politics.
