Hannah Szenes (often anglicized as Hannah Senesh or Chanah Senesh; July 17, 1921 – November 7, 1944) was a poet and Special Operations Executive (SOE) paratrooper. She was one of 37 Jewish parachutists of Mandate Palestine parachuted by the British Army into Yugoslavia during the Second World War to assist in the rescue of Hungarian Jews about to be deported to the German death camp at Auschwitz. Szenes was arrested at the Hungarian border, then imprisoned and tortured, but refused to reveal details of her mission. She was eventually tried and executed by firing squad. She is regarded as a national heroine in Israel, where her poetry is widely known and the headquarters of the Zionist youth movements Israel Hatzeira, a kibbutz and several streets are named after her.

The American Road to Nuremberg; The Documentary Record, 1944-1945. Bradley F. Smith.
Stanford, CA: Hoover Institution Press, 1982. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Hardcover. 24 cm. xi, [1], , 259, [1] pages. Notes. Documents. Bibliography. Index. DJ has slight wear and soiling. Pencil erasure residue on fep. Bradley F Smith was a ground-breaking historian of the Second World War and intelligence. He was born in 1931. He joined the air force. After four years' service he went to Berkeley to study history and then on a Fulbright scholarship to Munich, where he honed his skills in German documentary sources. In the 1970s he began to write the books which would make his name as a scholar. The journal Foreign Affairs welcomed Reaching Judgment at Nuremberg (1977) as "a superbly written and novelesque account, which is also a sound work of historical scholarship". The Shadow Warriors: OSS and the Origins of the CIA (1983) was, like all his books, meticulously researched, and it remains the best general account of the Office of Strategic Services, the US's Second World War intelligence agency.

Maus I & II: A Survivor's Tale. Art Spiegelman.
New York: Pantheon Books, [1992]. Later printings. Trade paperback. 159 & 136, 2-vol. wraps, profusely illustrated. Covers worn. Art Spiegelman (born Itzhak Avraham ben Zeev on February 15, 1948) is an American cartoonist, editor, and comics advocate best known for his graphic novel Maus. His work as co-editor on the comics magazines Arcade and Raw has been influential, and from 1992 he spent a decade as contributing artist for The New Yorker. Spiegelman began his career with the Topps bubblegum company in the mid-1960s; there he co-created parodic series such as Wacky Packages and the Garbage Pail Kids. Spiegelman then turned focus to the book-length Maus, about his relationship with his father, a Holocaust survivor. The postmodern book depicts Germans as cats, Jews as mice, and ethnic Poles as pigs, and took thirteen years to create until its completion in 1991. It won a special Pulitzer Prize in 1992 and a Guggenheim fellowship and has gained a reputation as a pivotal work, responsible for bringing scholarly attention to the comics medium.
