    The contrast was just too much. On one channel, I watched as tens of thousands of people struggled to survive the devastating impact of the tsunami that left more than 250,000 dead and countless others injured and homeless, and on another channel, presenters at last month's Golden...

    Most boy-meets-girl movies end when the happy pair stands under the chuppah. After all, it's not terribly dramatic what happens when they pick up the routine of daily married life.

    It's a bit like that with Holocaust films: The protagonists are either killed or liberated, but if they...

    Some five miles outside of Amsterdam, there is a site where a miracle took place during the Holocaust.

    Here, in this tiny town with quaint, pretty houses and narrow streets, the Nazis allowed Jewish history to survive. At a time when they were desecrating Jewish burial places all...

    Only justice can set them free.

    When Gerhard and Ursula Maschkowski met at the Deggendorf displaced persons camp in Bavaria soon after liberation, Gert weighed 70 pounds. He had survived not only four years in youth labor camps and two years in Auschwitz, but five months of a Nazi...
