Leipzig After Bach:Church and Concert Life in a German City Jeffrey S. Sposato
I come from a small town in Australia and at the moment I am living in Leipzig, Germany. I have experience in babysitting and child minding as I am the oldest of three and I would care for them many days a week. Last year I worked at a primary school in Peru teaching children English and Music. With my school I went to Vietnam some years ago and did the same thing there. Working with kids is rewarding for me and I believe that we learn from each other in an organic and natural way. I would be thrilled to become a small part in your child´s life and help you in anyway that I can. I look forward to hearing from you. Selva

Though Napoleon Bonaparte´s unquenchable thirst for military adventurism eventually cost him both his throne and his freedom during the Napoleonic Wars of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, the French emperor was not easily defeated, even when most of Europe´s nations united against him. Two military setbacks, on a scale unprecedented in history, were required before the high tide of Napoleon´s success began to ebb towards the final denouement of the Hundred Days and the famous Battle of Waterloo. The incredible losses inflicted on Napoleon´s Grand Armee by the ill-fated invasion of Russia in 1812 constituted the first setback that switched the Corsican´s life journey from the road of success to that of defeat and exile. A huge, veteran, highly experienced force, the French Army of Napoleon perished on the rain-soaked tracks and sun-seared plains of Russia. Napoleon eventually committed over 400,000 men to his Russian project, but at the end of a relatively brief campaign, only about 40,000 men returned to Germany alive, and the Russians took some 100,000 prisoner and largely absorbed them into the Russian military or population. The remainder died, principally from starvation, but also through enemy action and the bitter cold of early winter. The failed Russian invasion set the stage for the second defeat at Leipzig, which essentially sealed the fate of Napoleon´s empire. The four-day Battle of Leipzig in October 1813, romantically - but accurately - dubbed the ´´Battle of the Nations´´, proved the decisive encounter of the War of the Sixth Coalition and essentially determined the course the Napoleonic Wars took from that moment forward. 1.

The inspiring true story of an indomitable librarian’s journey from Nazi Germany to Seattle to Vietnam - all for the love of books.Growing up under Fascist censorship in Nazi Germany, Ruth Rappaport absorbed a forbidden community of ideas in banned books. After fleeing her home in Leipzig at fifteen and losing both parents to the Holocaust, Ruth drifted between vocations, relationships, and countries, searching for belonging and purpose. When she found her calling in librarianship, Ruth became not only a witness to history but an agent for change as well.Culled from decades of diaries, letters, and photographs, this epic true story reveals a driven woman who survived persecution, political unrest, and personal trauma through a love of books. It traces her activism from the Zionist movement to the Red Scare to bibliotherapy in Vietnam and finally to the Library of Congress, where Ruth made an indelible mark and found a home. Connecting it all, one constant thread: Ruth’s passion for the printed word, and the haven it provides - a haven that, as this singularly compelling biography proves, Ruth would spend her life making accessible to others. This wasn’t just a career for Ruth Rappaport. It was her purpose. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christa Lewis. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brll/011335/bk_brll_011335_sample.mp3.
