9 Gary Mokotoff A Companion Guide To 'Where Once We Walked' Jewish Communities Central, Eastern Europe
New Jersey Avotaynu 1995 096263736x / 9780962637360 1st Edition Hardcover Fine No Jacket Issued Book 
Originally created in 1991, by Gary Mokotoff, to help genealogists trace their Jewish ancestors through pre holocaust Europe, Where Once We Walked: A Guide to the Jewish Communities Destroyed in the Holocaust is a primary resource for finding original town and community names across Europe for all types of researchers, including non-Jewish genealogists. Perhaps no other area in the world has seen as much political change and border movements as Central and Eastern Europe. Germany didn't exist until the late 1800s, Czechoslovakia didn't exist until the end of World War I, lost territory to Russia at the end of World War II, and was dissolved into two different countries by 1993. One example shows the "original" town of Lemberg, Austria changing names three time (four names) in just 85 years; Lember, Austria became Lwów, Poland then L'vov, USSR and finally L'viv, Ukraine. Even experienced geographers would have trouble keeping up with these names changes; especially when examining towns by the thousands. The WOWW Companion enables the reader to identify towns and villages and even to create a rough map of the areas of central and eastern Europe detailed in WOWW by using precision longitude and latitude mapping technology. Published in 1995, approx. 7x10 inches, and in fine condition.

No Place Stated VCE, Inc. 2006 1889054194 / 9781889054193 2nd Edition Soft cover Near Fine Book with photos Signed by Author(s)
Publisher's Description: How To Photograph an Atomic Bomb is a visually compelling documentation combining awe-inspiring photography and fascinating technical detail about the stories and techniques behind the photography of the bomb. Author Peter Kuran's engrossing and powerful arrangement of these complex photographic techniques along with the astonishing photographs themselves creates an intriguing intersection at which the viewpoint of the casual observer becomes one of insightful witness. The culmination of over ten years of research, this book reveals newly declassified and previously secret photographs from US atomic weapons tests conducted between 1945 and 1963.
