Berlin, début 1945. Au cœur d’une ville dévastée, Richard Oppenheimer, juif et ancien commissaire, vit dans la peur de faire partie des tout derniers déportés. Aidé par son amie Hilde, fervente opposante au régime, il mène une existence dans l’ombre. La situation s’aggrave brusquement lorsque Hilde est accusée d’avoir tué son ex-mari, membre des SS impliqué dans les atroces expériences humaines menées à Auschwitz. Avec une broche portant un sigle runique comme seul indice, Oppenheimer se lance dans une enquête risquée pour démasquer le vrai coupable. Ses recherches le mènent à un mystérieux culte germanique qui n’a qu’un seul objectif : assurer la suprématie de la race aryenne... « Un thriller pour nous empêcher d’oublier... Ce livre devrait être une lecture obligatoire, et pas seulement pour les historiens. » Books

"Raif Badawi's is an important voice for all of us to hear"-- Salman Rushdie Raif Badawi, a Saudi Arabian blogger, shared his thoughts on politics, religion, and liberalism online. He was sentenced to 1,000 lashes, ten years in prison, and a fine of 1 million Saudi Riyal, over a quarter of a million U.S. dollars. This politically topical polemic gathers together Badawi’s pivotal texts. He expresses his opinions on life in an autocratic-Islamic state under the Sharia and his perception of freedom of expression, human and civil rights, tolerance and the necessary separation of state and religion.

Berlin, 1940, and the city is filled with fear. At the house on 55 Jablonski Strasse, its various occupants try to live under Nazi rule in their different ways: the bullying Hitler loyalists the Persickes, the retired judge Fromm and the unassuming couple Otto and Anna Quangel. Then the Quangels receive the news that their beloved son has been killed fighting in France. Shocked out of their quiet existence, they begin a silent campaign of defiance, and a deadly game of cat and mouse develops between the Quangels and the ambitious Gestapo inspector Escherich. When petty criminals Kluge and Borkhausen also become involved, deception, betrayal and murder ensue, tightening the noose around the Quangels' necks ... Afterword written by Geoff Wilkes. Includes scans of the original documents from the investigation, as well as explanatory footnotes.
