Ikrek Szibériában By Kerekes Béla
eBook (ePub): $3.83
Ez az irat Kerekess József nagybátyám gyűjtéséből maradt rám. Már gyerekkorban is sokszor olvastuk, még az is megtörtént,... More > hogy kiloptam a kopott bőröndből a sárga lapokat, és a kamasz pajtásokkal olvastuk a gépelt sorokat a pincében kiépített rejtekhelyünkön. Az 1960-as éveket írjuk. Az tetszett benne, hogy utaznak a szereplők, nem az, hogy háborúznak. Akkor a bezártság volt az alapélmény, egyszerűen nem lehetett legyűrni azt a kínt. Külön érdekes, hogy az orosz emberekről, katonákról nem szörnyűségeket ír, hanem az emberi segítség legszebb példáit hozza. Ez akkor szintén furcsa volt, és hihetetlen. Más volt addigra már a tapasztalat a háborúról, megszállásról, az ideiglenesen itt tartózkodókról. A szövegen nem változtattam semmit, a helyesírást is megtartottuk. Személyesen nem ismertem az emlékirat szerzőjét, a rokonsági fokunk is homályos. A címlapon Hangya-igazgatóként adja meg titulusát. Igaz, nagyszerű ember lehetett, az egész memoárt áthatja a hit, a meggyőződés, a tenni kész hazaszeretet. Kerekes Pál< Less

Forced sexual penetration with insemination and impregnation represents a symbolic conquest of the woman by the rapist and by extension the raped woman’s community, family or culture. This symbolic conquest becomes applicable to the whole population as survivors, witnesses, families and communities internalize rape as an assault on their collective identity. Although social welfare is uniquely suited to respond to the problems of rape, the topic of mass rape has been neglected. This book makes a plea for deeper engagement by social welfare and social work scholars and professionals.< Less

Uncertainty over Congress's role in two successive wars - Korea and then Vietnam - led to the passage of the War Powers Resolution in 1973.

More > America's longest war, one that pulled the country apart and left many questions about responsibilities and Presidential decisions. The resolution, which today's witnesses recommend repealing, has been controversial ever since it was enacted over President Nixon's veto. The 1973 resolution represented Congress's best effort to try to clarify and make concrete its role in the decision to go to war. That resolution required that the President consult with Congress prior to, and on a regular basis after, U.S. forces were deployed. More controversially, the law required that the President withdraw our forces within 60 days of their deployment into combat, absent specific congressional authorization or an extension of the deadline by Congress.< Less
