A Guide to a Manuscript Collection at Houghton Library, Harvard University
Author: Harry Liebersohn
Publisher: American Philosophical Society
This collection of memoirs by refugees from Nazi Germany is a rich source of autobiographical information on the Nazi era. Housed at Houghton Library of Harvard University, it consists of 263 files containing the memoirs of approximately 230 people who lived in Germany or Austria during the 1930s. The stories of the memoirists encompass an almost bewildering range of human experience. The authors come from Danzig and Berlin, from central Germany and the Southwest, from Munich and from Vienna. They are Jews and Catholics and Protestants, and mixtures of these all-too-neat categories in their origins and marriages. They are peddlers and professors, machinists and lawyers, private housewives and public activists. They are conservatives and liberals and Communists. The strongest common bond was their exile.

Finally - SOMEONE spills the dark and dirty beans about what it is really like to survive that first incredible year of motherhood. Filled with real tips from real parents, and based on their successful mommy blog - survival4moms.com, Erica Wells and Lorraine Regel answer all the questions you have been trying to get answered, AND all of the questions you didn't know you should be asking. Having a baby is easily the biggest lifestyle change you'll ever experience. It can be like entering a whole new world, without a map, guidebook or phrasebook. Erica Wells and Lorraine Regel experienced this first hand, and though they'd read their share of encyclopedic baby books, nothing compared to the support and humor they found among their 'Mommy' friends. These comrades provided a whole lot more truthful and helpful information for getting through the first year than what was in the typical baby book, and The Survival Guide for Rookie Moms shares these tips so that you won't find yourself saying "I never knew!" "I wish he had known...babies born to darker skinned parents often start life as fair skinned," said a midwife after having to diffuse the commotion in her delivery room caused by an African- American dad when confronted with his white baby." With each chapter dedicated to a specific part of the body, this distinct guide is practical and effortless to use. Just flip to one of the baby zone or mommy zone chapters (yes, half of this book is devoted to you, your body, and your mommy issues!) and you'll zoom in on practical tips, expert advice, and the insight and experiences of hundreds of other real moms. By helping you quickly focus in on the possible trouble zones, The Survival Guide for Rookie Moms will arm you with the real truth as you enter 'Baby World,' making navigation in this strange land a whole lot more fun!
