Billy, Eric & Adolf: One War, Two Brothers

by Chris Whitfield

In January 1941 with the Liverpool Blitz at its height, twelve-year-old Billy Whitfield was evacuated to live on a farm without running water or electricity in the rural town of Bridgnorth, Shropshire, an event that was to shape him for the rest of his life. In the same year, his elder brother Eric volunteered to join the RAF, subsequently serving as a flight engineer in Bomber Command, the most dangerous of the Allied Services.

Based on the true story of these two brothers and their contrasting experiences during the Second World War, Billy, Eric & Adolf is a tale of courage, innocence and love, a poignant, funny and moving account of ordinary lives impacted by extraordinary times.

"The newspaper headline read more like a plot line from an episode of Dad’s Army...

by S. L. Young

Script - Tippy: Tales of Flying Sergeants: Enlisted Fighter Pilots in WWII

by Michael Uva

Based on the story of an enlisted marine who flew a P-51 aircraft during WWII. (Normally, only Commissioned Officers were pilots.) These "enlisted" pilots fought like hellions in air battles in the European and South Pacific theaters against greater trained enemy pilots and superior aircraft. They showed tenacity, guts, and heart in a belief they could stem the tide of tyranny. They crammed their bodies into tiny aircraft, and then hurled themselves across the skies, to protect America!

I wrote Tippy (in a fictional form) as a tribute to the real Master Gunnery Sergeant Tippy that I had the pleasure and honor to have served with while I was enlisted in the Marines. I flew a few times as his crew chief.

Only Officers were supposed to be pilots. But despite discrimi...

Enoch, I am a British Indian: From the Rupee to the Euro with a Double-Headed Coin?

by Sarinder Joshua Duroch

In 1968, Conservative MP Enoch Powell gave a shocking speech in Birmingham opposing immigration throughout the UK. The 'Rivers of Blood' speech was described as 'evil'. It resulted in Powell's dismissal from the Shadow Cabinet and made thousands of immigrants feel unsafe in the country they had adopted as their own. Powell himself became a symbol of both loathing and fervent admiration. Sarinder Joshua Duroch, a British man whose grandparents came to this country from India, provides a new perspective on this divisive figure. Despite disagreeing with Powell's methods, and despite the trouble that Powell caused for his family, Duroch finds that it's not impossible to establish some common ground. Enoch, I Am a British Indian is a bold and unusual examination of immigration, the failure of m...

Archivist on a Bicycle: JiYí Fiedler

by Ruth Ellen Gruber and Arno Pařík

Archivist on a Bicycle is a tribute to Jiří Fiedler, a Czech Protestant, who for most of his life documented extinct Bohemian and Moravian Jews at great danger to himself. His day job was as a children’s book editor; his passion was mapping and archiving the sites of Jewish life in the Czech lands. From the 1970s through 2014, he was an invaluable source for scholars, genealogists, museum curators — anyone in the world interested in Czech Jews. Jiří rarely talked about what he called his “strange hobby,” but viewed it as a decent person’s response to Nazism and Communism. After the Velvet Revolution, he published Jewish Sights in Bohemia and Moravia and more than one hundred scholarly articles and reviews. His electronic encyclopedia of Jewish communities at the Jewish Museum...
