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.

The Wrath of Brotherhood
After learning of his sister’s death at the hands of pirates, successful merchant Captain Roy Toppings sails to the Caribbean on a misguided mission of vengeance against the man who failed to protect her: her Spanish widower, Pablo Francisco.
In the climate of the Restoration-era Caribbean colonies, where scheming and stealth could yield a prize as readily as boldness and firepower, Roy's vendetta lands him and his small but talented privateer crew in the middle of political intrigue and a deadly invasion in the West Indies as the nations of Europe struggle to consolidate power in anticipation of new monarchs in England and France.
When Spain prepares a strike that could jeopardize all other commercial interests in the Caribbean, Roy must risk losing his chance at vengeance to fight for his nation and his fellow Brethren of the Coast.
Adults often complain about youth gang violence as if young people are orchestrating the drug trafficking and gun toting that has disrupted peaceful community life. The fact is, gangs are run by grown people, and the organized crime network that recruits and trains children is made up of generations of families that prepare their children from childhood to run the "family business." How does a young person "leave" a gang when the gang is his or her family? How does a young person stand up to bullying by gangs, when the adults in the community won't stand up to the adult gang leaders living in their midst? Why are we pretending this is a phenomenon of a few "misbehaving children" instead of recognizing it for the crime syndicate that it is? How do we, the adults, root out the drug trafficking that fuels the gang wars, when we, the adults, are the customers for the drug sellers? Photojournalist Marcus Robinson discusses the recent shooting death of youth activist Matthew Williams and the gang activities that fuel the violence.
The word which the Lord spoke concerning Babylon, the land of the Chaldeans, through Jeremiah the prophet: “Declare and proclaim among the nations. Proclaim it and lift up a standard. Do not conceal it but say, ‘Babylon has been captured, Bel has been put to shame, Marduk has been shattered; Her images have been put to shame, her idols have been shattered.’ For a nation has come up against her out of the north; it will make her land an object of horror, and there will be no inhabitant in it.
Both man and beast have wandered off, they have gone away! “In those days and at that time,” declares the Lord, “the sons of Israel will come, both they and the sons of Judah as well; they will go along weeping as they go, and it will be the Lord their God they will seek.

SENIORS AGAINST A FEARFUL ENVIRONMENT
"Seniors Against a Fearful Environment (SAFE), a nonprofit corporation, was begun by the Black Panther Party at the request of a group of senior citizens for the purpose of preventing muggings and attacks upon the elderly, particularlywhen they go out to cash their meager social security or pension checks. Prior to approaching the Black Panther Party, the seniors had gone to the Oakland Police Department to request protection. There the seniors were told, to their dismay and outrage, that they "should walk close to the curb" in the future. Mrs. Van Frank, founder of the East Bay Legislative Council of Senior Citizens and the state of California's Outstanding Senior Citizen for 1971, commenting on the dangers experienced by the senior citi zens, has remarked: "The fear engendered among us old people by these mug gings almost makes us prisoners in our own homes."
A section of a recent funding proposal for the SAFE Program substantiates these claims. A comparative crime study was done over a period of six weeks (August 21 to October 1, 1972) and details conclusively that the age of the victim does bear a de nite relationship to the type ofo ense committed. Ofthe com bined total of 249 victims of strong-arm robbery and purse-snatching, 48 per cent ofthe victims (118) were overthe age of y. During this same period, only 13 percent of complainants in armed robbery cases fell into the senior citizen category. The conclusion, then, is that an elderly person is more likely to be physically attacked, whereas the younger, more agile person, who is more able to a defend his- or herself, will more likely be the victim of an armed assault. The fact has also been established that 33 percent of all crimes committed in the city of Oakland are committed against senior citizens."

The control of minorities in the new America influenced early policing. New England settlers appointed Indian Officers to police Native Americans, the St. Louis police were founded to protect residents from Native Americans in that frontier city, and many southern police departments began as slave patrols. Today, as we examine police slogans like, “To Protect and to Serve” and “Committed to Excellence”, in a historical context, it becomes obvious that they’re not directed at the policed neighborhoods. We find police officers in the neighborhood of indigenous Americans and other working class races in the news every day. They Kill first and hide the facts later. They are murdering unarmed men and defenseless women and children and it is plain to see, in plain sight, they are abusing their positions of power. Through the media, the crimes are covered up and Politicians turn their heads as the innocent die every day while made up stories justify their “legalized” violence.
