Lebensborn la fabrique des enfants parfaits
Erwin, Gisèle, Walter, Christiane ont aujourd'hui près de 70 ans. Ces Français, marqués à jamais parle sceau de leur étrange origine, sont nés dans une maternité SS. Leur secret renvoie à l'un des projets nazis les plus terrifiants entrepris entre 1935 et 1945: créer une "race supérieure", future élite du Ille Reich. Ce livre raconte la création de nurseries spéciales, les Lebensborn, par la SS. Les deux parents étaient sélectionnés selon leur "pureté raciale aryenne" : grands, blonds, les yeux bleus. Les nourrissons y étaient abandonnés, puis adoptés par des familles modèles. Leur véritable identité était alors falsifiée. Ces enfants devenus adultes dévoilent pour la première fois leur histoire, depuis leur naissance dans un établissement du Lebensborn jusqu'à la maison-mère de l'organisation, ainsi que leur quête vertigineuse pour retrouver, des décennies plus tard, la trace de leurs parents. Une enquête inédite qui met au jour une part sombre de l'histoire de France.
Les Mots des m res
Longtemps, les hommes ont défini la maternité à leur manière : succédant aux prêtres, les philosophes, les médecins, les politiques ont prescrit des règles de conduite aux " filles d'Ève ". Les femmes n'avaient pas leur mot à dire, à l'exception des mieux nanties ou des plus combatives. Progressivement, l'instruction des filles s'est généralisée, les femmes ont osé revendiquer leurs droits. Puis, grâce aux progrès scientifiques, elles ont pu limiter leur fécondité, devenir mères selon leur volonté et non plus selon leur " nature ". Et en gagnant leur vie, en accédant à l'espace public, elles ont pris la parole de plus en plus librement. Que disent les femmes, qu'écrivent-elles sur la maternité, sur la relation entre mère et enfant ? En leur donnant ici la parole, en mettant en valeur leurs dits et leurs écrits, présentés dans leur contexte historique et social, cet ouvrage, qui inclut une anthologie littéraire – du XVIIe siècle à nos jours –, offre une histoire passionnante et originale. D'une grande diversité (lettres, billets d'abandon, conseils de nourrices, traités d'éducation, poèmes, journaux, romans, autofictions, écrits pour la jeunesse, bandes dessinées, blogs...), les textes proposés émanent d'écrivaines célèbres ou d'anonymes. En abordant des thèmes aussi divers que le déni de grossesse, les nouvelles configurations familiales, la transmission maternelle ou la conciliation maternité-travail, ils illustrent des évolutions de la société contemporaine et les nouvelles façons d'être mère.

Hitler s Forgotten Children
Created by Heinrich Himmler, the Lebensborn program abducted as many as half a million children from across Europe. Through a process called Germanization, they were to become the next generation of the Aryan master race in the second phase of the Final Solution. In the summer of 1942, parents across Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia were required to submit their children to medical checks designed to assess racial purity. One such child, Erika Matko, was nine months old when Nazi doctors declared her fit to be a “Child of Hitler.” Taken to Germany and placed with politically vetted foster parents, Erika was renamed Ingrid von Oelhafen. Many years later, Ingrid began to uncover the truth of her identity. Though the Nazis destroyed many Lebensborn records, Ingrid unearthed rare documents, including Nuremberg trial testimony about her own abduction. Following the evidence back to her place of birth, Ingrid discovered an even more shocking secret: a woman named Erika Matko, who as an infant had been given to Ingrid’s mother as a replacement child. Hitler’s Forgotten Children is both a harrowing personal memoir and a devastating investigation into the awful crimes and monstrous scope of the Lebensborn program.

The Major Works
This authoritative edition was originally published in the acclaimed Oxford Authors series under the general editorship of Frank Kermode. It brings together a unique combination of Keats's poetry and prose - all the major poems, complemented by a generous selection of Keats's letters - to give the essence of his work and thinking. In his tragically short life Keats wrote an astonishing number of superb poems; his stature as one of the foremost poets of the Romantic movement remains unassailable. This volume contains all the poetry published during his lifetime, including Endymion in its entirety, the Odes, "Lamia", and both versions of "Hyperion." The poetry is presented in chronological order , illustrating the staggering speed with which Keats's work matured. Further insight into his creative process is given by reproducing, in their original form, a number of poems that were published posthumously. Keats's letters are admired almost as much as his poetry and were described by T. S. Eliot as "certainly the most notable and most important ever written by any English poet." They provide the best biographical detail available and shed invaluable light on Keats's poems.
In this riveting, powerful narrative, Lynn Nicholas shows how children under the Nazis became mere objects available for use in the service of the totalitarian state. Nicholas recounts the euthanasia and eugenic selection, racist indoctrination, kidnapping and “Germanization,” mass executions, and slave labor to which the Nazis subjected Europe’s children. She also captures the uprooted children’s search for their families in the aftermath of the war. A disturbing and absolutely necessary work, Cruel World opens a new chapter in World War II studies. From the Trade Paperback edition.

'Do you not see how necessary a World of Pains and troubles is to school an Intelligence and make it a soul?' Keats's letters have long been regarded as an extraordinary record of poetic development and sout-making. They represent one of the most sustained reflections on the poet's art we have from any of the major English poets. Yet quite apart from the light they throw on the poetry, they are great works of literature in their own right. Written with gusto and occasionally painful candour, they show a powerful intelligence struggling to come to terms with its own mortality. Sometimes bitterly jealous in love and socially and financially insecure, at others playful and confident of his own greatness, Keats interweaves his personal plight with the history of a Britain emerging from the long years of the Napoleonic Wars into a world of political unrest, profound social change, and commercial expansion. This selection of 170 letters, written between 1816 and 1820, includes a new introduction and notes by Jon Mee explaining both the personal and political contexts that brought them to life.
