The remarkable true story of two families that survived against all odds in the heart of the Nazi capitalSurvival in the Shadows rivetingly chronicles the incredible survival of seven German Jews in Berlin through the final and most deadly years of the Holocaust. In January 1943, unable to flee Germany, the four members of the Arndt family went underground to avoid deportation to Auschwitz. Soon they were joined by Ellen Lewinsky and her mother, Charlotte; a year later, Bruno Gumpel joined the group. Hiding in a small factory fewer than two miles from Hitler's bunker, without identification cards or food-ration stamps, they were dependent on German strangers for sustenance and anonymity. When Russian soldiers finally rescued the group in April 1945, the families were perilously near death from starvation. But their will to live triumphed. Most joyously, two months later, four of the survivors--Erich Arndt and Ellen Lewinsky, and Ruth Arndt and Bruno Gumpel--reunited in a double wedding ceremony. In her compelling and captivating book, Barbara Lovenheim shares this previously untold story, relayed to her by three surviving members of the group, whom she met by chance in her hometown. Survival in the Shadows is a touching portrayal of the resourcefulness and bravery of the seven Jews in hiding as well as the fortitude and humanity of the ordinary Germans who kept them alive.

From the book: The first book of its kind, Surviving an Eating Disorder is an inspiring yet realistic guide written expressly for parents, spouses, friends, relatives, and all others who are the "silent sufferers" of anorexia, bulimia, and compulsive overeating. Whether you've just begun to suspect a problem or have been facing the frightening reality of a serious disorder for some time, this reassuring book will help you to overcome feelings of confusion, helplessness, and anger and to take new actions that will encourage the recovery process. The authors, three leading experts in the field, explain what you can expect from the eating-disordered person--and yourself---and what kind of support is available. Drawing on the authors' extensive experience in counseling individuals, groups, and families, and illustrated throughout with vivid case examples, Surviving an Eating Disorder will help answer all your questions, large and small: Why is this happening? Can I keep sweets in the house? What do I say when she asks if she looks fat? How can I help him with his diet? Should I suggest therapy? Will things get better? In Part I, "Gaining Perspective," the authors discuss the psychological components of eating disorders as well as the family contexts in which they develop. Part II, "Confronting the Problem," offers guidance for bringing the problem out into the open, getting the person into treatment, and coping with the possibility of anger and denial. In Part III, "Using New Strategies," the authors show how the situation can be made better--now--by disengaging from the eating disorder (with practical suggestions for handling such daily issues as mealtimes, messy bathrooms, money, and requests for advice) while reestablishing a relationship with the eating disordered person based on issues other than food and weight. The guide concludes with names and addresses of national organizations and a list of suggested readings.
Surviving an Eating Disorder has become a classic since it was first published in 1988. It was one of the first books to offer effective support and solutions for family, friends, and all others who are the "silent sufferers" of eating disorders.

With its combination of information, insight, case examples, and practical strategies, Surviving an Eating Disorder opens the way to new growth and helpful solutions in your relationship with your loved one.

The premise of this book is that learning to let go of anger--and ultimately forgiving the offender--will transform the foundation of every kind of relationship we have. Stanley defines anger as "a strong feeling of intense displeasure, hostility, or indignation as a result of a real or an imagined threat or insult, frustration, or injustice toward yourself or towards someone who's very important to you." Building on this defintion, Stanley...1. Helps readers identify the signs of anger, so they can identify anger in themselves. 2. Reveals the far-reaching consequences of anger, which encompass the spiritual, emotional, and physical. 3. Teaches readers how to handle anger through thirteen concrete steps.4. Walks readers through the steps to true forgiveness and the healing power it brings.With compassion and a wealth of biblical understanding, Stanley explains that the measure of a person is "the size of thing that makes them angry." He goes on to distinguish between healthy and harmful anger and reminds us that "righteous indignation" is a divine emotion. However, he skillfully explains that misguided anger eats away at ourselves, our relationships with others, and our relationship with God. By helping readers look honestly at the source of their anger, he gently leads them to the ability to truly forgive and find the peace they seek.
