Up to 2,000,000 Jews allegedly died in gas chambers in the Sobibor camp in Poland in 1942 and 1943. The corpses were allegedly buried but later incinerated on pyres.

From the Ashes of Sobibor
Blatt's account of his childhood in Izbica provides a fascinating glimpse of Jewish life in Poland after the German invasion and during the period of mass deportations of Jews to the camps.

The Age of Sinan
"In this work, Gulru Necipoglu convinces us that Sinan's rich variety of mosque designs sprang from a process of negotiation between the architect and his patrons, rather than from the restless, unrestrained formal experimentation previously attributed to him. The author is the first to use a broad range of published and unpublished primary sources specifically in order to illuminate the cultural setting in which Sinan's monuments were produced and 'received'. She describes how Sinan created a layered system of mosque types, reflecting social status and territorial rank, shaped by ideas of identity, memory and decorum. Seen from this perspective, Sinan's monuments, with their highly standardized forms, used in ingeniously varied combinations, acquire dimensions of meaning that have not been recognized hitherto." "Illustrated with hundreds of specially commissioned photographs and architectural drawings, The Age of Sinan is unlikely ever to be superseded."--BOOK JACKET.
