    Heather Voight talks about her book, "Passionate Crusaders"

    in History

    Historian Heather Voight talks about her new book, "Passionate Crusaders: How Members of the U.S. War Refugee Board Saved Jews and Altered American Foreign Policy during World War II."


    About Passionate Crusaders:


    Passionate Crusaders tells the gripping story of a few righteous Americans who sought to do what many thought impossible in 1944--save Jews who had not yet been murdered in the Holocaust.


    By January 1944, Treasury Department officials Henry Morgenthau, John Pehle, and Josiah DuBois had already convinced President Franklin Roosevelt to create the War Refugee Board, an agency with the authority to provide rescue and relief for Jews and other groups persecuted by the Nazis.


    Scholars have criticized the Board for its inability to save more Jews and maintained that the agency should have been created sooner. Heather Voight's groundbreaking research proves that despite its shortcomings, the War Refugee Board changed history and forever altered American foreign policy. Its creation ended the cycle of indifference that the government and the American public had shown to victims of the Holocaust. In the words of Henry Morgenthau, from 1944-1945 "crusaders, passionately persuaded of the need for speed and action" risked their reputations and sometimes their lives to save Jews.


    In addition to saving more than 100,000 lives, Board members also made a lasting impact on international law. They pressured the War Crimes Commission to broaden its definition of war crimes by including the murder of civilians by their own countrymen. This new definition of war crimes was applied to genocides committed many decades later in Bosnia and Rwanda, and continues to be used today.


    About Heather Voight: Heather Voight is a successful freelance writer and history blogger. She has a B.A. in History and English.

    THE LADY LIFERS Sing About Life In Prison

    in Radio

    Have you heard of the TED Talks series? The inspirational talks have grown into a popular video series and can be an incredible resource for those looking to expand their horizons on topics they may not already be familiar with or learn a different side to a story they think that they already know. According to their website, “TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. ”


    In November 2014, a group of women known as The Lady Lifers took to the TEDx stage inside Muncy State Prison to sing about their experiences. These women have all been sentenced to life in prison and in Pennsylvania there is no chance at parole. Of the ten women who make up The Lady Lifers, many have been incarcerated for well over twenty years, and inmate Trina Garnett has been in prison since she was fourteen years old. After their powerful song, the women who have been primarily known by their inmate numbers definitively state their names and declare, “This is not my home.”


    The Washington Post recently made the argument

    from childhood through adulthood.

    Above and Beyond - The Incredible True Story of Extraterrestrial Contact

    in Spirituality

    Lisette Larkins has had extraordinary extraterrestrial encounters since childhood. The importance of them was to reveal to her the possibility of experiencing a “chronic state of well-being” and to inspire the recognition that, as spiritual beings in human bodies, we are designed to create to the same degree and with the same ability as extraterrestrials do! This means that the very purpose of our soul is to allow our imagination to run free and to be, do, and have anything and everything we want.We are designed to be Creative Beings! When we are not in the process of creating, we are actually spiraling downward. But we cannot create what we want when we are not feeling good.
