Today Amazon offers The Search for Major Plagge:The Nazi Who Saved Jews, Expanded Edition by Michael Good just for $1.99
When The Search for Major Plagge was published last spring, the world finally learned about a unique hero-and about one American doctor’s extraordinary journey to tell Karl Plagge’s story. Part detective story, part personal quest, Michael Good’s book is the story of the German commander of a Lithuanian work camp who saved hundreds of Jewish lives in the Vilna ghetto -including the life of Good’s mother, Pearl. Who was this enigmatic officer Pearl Good had spoken of so often? After five years of research-interviewing survivors, assembling a team that could work to open German files untouched for fifty years, following every lead he could, Good was able to uncover the amazing tale of one man’s remarkable courage. And in April 2005 Karl Plagge joined Oskar Schindler and 380 other Germans as a Righteous among Nations,honored by the State of Israel for protecting and saving Jewish lives during the Holocaust. This expanded edition features new photographs and a new epilogue on the impact of the discovery of Karl Plagge-especially the story of 83-year-old Alfons von Deschwanden, who, after fifty years of silence, came forward as a veteran of Plagge’s unit. His testimony is now part of this growing witness to truth.

Rocket Weasel is a game for your Kindle Fire which you can obtain just for free.
Weasel school isn’t just fun and games; it’s the training ground for future expert chicken hunters. It’s where weasels enter as little weasels and leave as warrior weasels. And they must learn from no other weasel than the Dojo of all weasels–Mr. Weasel, himself.
But, as young weasels do, this bunch got into a little trouble in the hen house. Prepare to incite some serious rodent wreckage in this physics-based puzzler for the whole family.
Mr. Weasel was guiding his students on a midnight coop raid, Operation Chicken Dinner, when things went horribly wrong. The crotchety old farmer was waiting with cages and treacherous traps. Now these amateurs are all locked up–with the exception of their sly mentor.
Playing as Mr. Weasel, you must harness your inner-rodent to outsmart the ruthless farmer and free your little weasels from their confines. As you may have expected, Mr. Weasel doesn’t mess around. Strap on a rocket and put chicken back on the menu. Smash crates, blow stuff up, and eat as many chickens as possible for more points while you free the other weasels.
While the farm is in a frenzy, other animals try to help Mr. Weasel free the little critters. All 64 levels are full of colorful characters and spectacular graphics. Farm animals unite! (Except the chickens. No one cares about the chickens unless they’re served with a side of mashed potatoes.)
