Sophie Poldermans is a Dutch lecturer and women's rights activist, and the founder of "Sophie's Women of War." Sophie has documented some World War II history in her new boook: "Seducing and Killing Nazis". She personally knew Truus and Freddie Oversteegen for 20 years and worked closely with them for over a decade as a board member of the National Hannie Schaft Foundation. Hannie Schaft was killed by Nazis for her work in the Dutch Resistance, just 7 weeks before the war ended. She was just 25, and had been doing her work since she was 19. These Dutch Heroines gathered vital information, provided Jewish children with safe houses, stole identification papers, and bombed railways, along with liquidating the invaders. Sophie carries on this work because she knows we must not forget the past, as well, war continues, and women and children continue to be victimized. ,

Helene Berger is an inspiring woman, the author of "Choosing Joy: Alzheimer's, A Book of Hope". Written as a result of her personal experiences in caring for her husband for the last 6 years of his life following his diagnosis, Helene discovered some simple but profound ways to be with, and help her husband. One very important thing is to get help, and give yourself time to rest and regenerate. There was the discovery of 'the magic of questions'. Rather than directing him, asking him what he would want completely changed the energy. While the book is about a journey through Alzheimers, it's really about living an inspiring life.
