Factfulness by Hans Rosling
 
Change your worldview and recognize the amazing progress being made in our world! In Factfulness, Professor of International Health and global TED phenomenon Hans Rosling, together with his long-time collaborators Anna and Ola, offers a radical new explanation of why the world appears worse off than before when the contrary is true. They reveal the ten instincts that distort our perspective – from our tendency to divide the world into two camps (usually some version of us and them) and the way we consume media (where fear rules), to how we perceive progress (believing that most things are getting worse).

We Were The Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter
 
It’s the spring of 1939, and three generations of the Kurc family are doing their best to live normal lives, even as the shadow of war grows closer. The talk around the family Seder table is of new babies and budding romance, not of the increasing hardships facing Jews in their hometown of Radom, Poland. But soon the horrors overtaking Europe will become inescapable and the Kurc family will be flung to the far corners of the earth, each member desperately trying to chart his or her own path toward safety.
 
This book is available at the Club Library, Kinokuniya, the National Library and Amazon.
