    The Author Chat Show with Lynda D. Brown

    in Books

    Meet author Gabriella Kovac. She'll be joining me on the Author Chat show to discuss her new book, Georgina: Holocaust Survivor Stories.


    About the book:


    December 1944, whilst heavy snows fall over Budapest and soldiers battle for the streets, Georgina, a young Jewish woman, is nearly starving to death with her newborn son.


    The battle outside is one of the most savage of the entire war. She
    knows that to go into is virtually a death sentence. But she must find food within the next few hours or her baby will certainly die.
    For Georgina there is no choice. Alone and completely vulnerable, she heads out into the freezing cold.


    About the author:


    Gabriella Kovac was born in Hungary, Just after the Second World War had drawn to a close. She lived through the Hungarian uprising against the Communists in 1956, and remembers vividly Russian tanks sitting under her bedroom window. Through the genius of her mother Georgina, their family managed to leave the Communist bloc and come to Australia in 1957. Gabriella is a passionate public speaker, chef (her favourite dish is Hungarian Goulash) and has been very successful in fashion, even authoring the book "Magic Drafting," which can also be found on Amazon. Throughout her life, Gabriella has been inspired by her mother's amazing tenacity, enthusiasm and will to live.

    A lot of fans are not happy with some rcent moves. 


    First up, Krisztián Németh and SKC seemed to have parted less than amicably. Was it money for Nemeth? Was it oil dollars for SKC? Time to train for the Euros? Not enough chicken paprikash? 


    The other big move sees homegrown defender Erik Palmer-Brown sent on loan to Porto FC in Portugal. Money, experince? Roster room? 


    Squeezed in between all the controversial player moves the first preseason scrimmage took place.

    Deepertruth: Eucharistic Miracle of Hungary 1956 Jesus I Trust in You

    in Religion

    This is the story of a marvelous miracle that took place a few days before Christmas of 1956 in Communist-occupied Hungary. The story comes to us through a Fr. Norbert, a parish priest in Budapest, who later fled to the West.


    Gertrude was a rabidly militant Communist who was an elementary teacher in a girls’ school. She made it her mission to try to steal her pupils’ Catholic faith, and missed no opportunity to either mock their belief, or to slyly indoctrinate them in Marxist propaganda.


    One particular pupil, Angela, an intelligent, devout little leader, asked Fr. Norbert to let her receive Holy Communion daily to help her bear up under her teacher’s constant persecution. “She will persecute you worse,” Fr. Norbert warned, but the ten year old insisted she needed Jesus more than ever.


    Sure enough, from that day, sensing something different, Gertrude began a veritable psychological torture campaign.


    On December 17, the schoolmistress devised a cruel trick meant to strike a deadly blow against what she termed“ancient superstitions infesting the school”.


    In a sweet voice, she began to question the children, promoting atheistic materialism, arguing that things only exist that can be seen and touched.

    A Kind Voice on Movies

    in Movies

    Interview with Gregory Cioffi about his upcoming film called The Museum of Lost Things.  The film is about a man who randomly walks into a museum that has objects that represent something that he has lost in his life.  The movie then goes onto to consider more abstract things, like lost illusions.  It is a layered story told from different perspectives weaving together objects, experiences and some big ideas. The film is based on a short story by Dennis Pahl and parts of it were shot at Long Island University.


    To get the right tone for the film Gregory studied some of Woody Allen and Wes Anderson films, including Midnight in Paris and The Grand Budapest Hotel.  However, The Museum of Lost Things is it's own unique story, inspired by Dennis's experience of losing/misplacing things.  


    If you 'd like to help bring this magical tapesty to life, please check out the film's Kickstarter project.

    Joseph Stalin's persecution of Europeans vs. Isis; who is worse?

    in History

    People from neighboring countries like Finland, Hungary and Yugoslavia were forced into work camps under Stalin.  Did he have an objective like Isis does not?  When killing is killing or is it to build a new society?  The ultimate purge.


    Case study: Russian-Finnish Winter War of 1939-1941.  The Soviet Union ostensibly sought to claim parts of Finnish territory, demanding—amongst other concessions—that Finland cede substantial border territories in exchange for land elsewhere, claiming security reasons, primarily the protection of Leningrad, which was only 32 km (20 mi) from the Finnish border. Finland refused and the USSR invaded the country  Many Finns living in Soviet Karelia region were subject to labor camps because of persecution but also their lumber skills
