#TIL that the forest was a main identifying factor of what it meant to be a German, especially with the rise of industrialization. There was even a spiritual movement where youths would go to the countryside to reconnect with their ancestry and nature. There they had a double swastika that stood for frish (fresh), fromm (pious), fröhlich (happy), and frei (free) #nonfiction #völkisch

#TIL that the Bible contains prejudices against Jews, which was a basis for persecution in everyday life and then during the #Holocaust. Jesus apparently said Jews were "the children of the devil" and priests branded them "perfidious". Jews weren't allowed to own land, could only work as the evil moneylender, and were marked with a yellow badge #history #nonfiction #medievaleurope

Is a very nice adaptation from a not so easy read. I wish they have adapted a few more parts but overall very well done.

I was wind-turbine spotting my entire journey home while reading this the other day. Such a good book!

William grows up in #Malawi, helping on the farm, curious about everything, and with a desire to learn. I don‘t think I‘ve ever read a description of famine from someone who‘s lived through it, the fact that you knew it was coming and could do nothing to avert it. And after, his desire to educate himself, & his persistence to build his windmill.

RachelO Absolutely loved it. A fascinating story well-told. Belated #readaroundtheworld #Malawi, plus #BBRC #GrownUp #nonfiction and #nfnov #booked2019 #booktomovie #nonfiction2019 #aboutsurvival 21h

BookwormM You are really on a roll with SA any options for Togo 19h
RachelO @BookwormM Think it‘s going to be tough to find anything - the library usually has something tucked away in the stack, but apparently has made an exception for Togo. So far, this is the option: 16h
RachelO @BookwormM ... but I‘m not sure I really want to tackle it. Have you found anything? 16h
