Slaves of the Third Reich
by Michal Pal-Palewski
On 29 April 1940, Michal was abducted by a Gestapo roundup on Marszałkowska Street—a street he walked often while visiting his family in Warsaw. Though he heard the warning shouts from others trying to escape, for Michal it was too late.
This posthumous memoir will chill you to the bone. It will leave you enraged at the wickedness of the Third Reich and exhilarated that good triumphed over evil through those, like Michal, who survived and left us their testimony on paper.
From Meth to Life one cell at a time
by Jamie Nash with C. C. Semick
Through hollow eyes Jamie Nash watched methamphetamine—his closest friend for seventeen years—bail on him as his life crashed into the penal system.
“Thirty years to be served concurrently,” said the judge.
The gavel dropped and Jamie was locked in a jail pod at Fayette County Courthouse, Vandalia, Illinois. Crashing from a meth high, Jamie contemplated suicide.
FROM METH TO LIFE: one cell at a time is a story of a life supernaturally rebuilt at the cellular level both physically and spiritually.
“I have been rescued—not arrested,” says Jamie. “I know God put me here to keep me from destroying my life.”
Jamie let God teach him the things he refused to learn when he was free. Soon he was on a mission. From cell to cell he shared the message of freedom in Christ with every inmate who crossed his path—those who would listen and those who wouldn’t. He served his sentence faithfully, finding unexpected joy by sticking to God’s plan for his life.
FROM METH TO LIFE: One Cell at a Time is for prisoners of all forms of addictions—both in and out of jail.
JAMIE NASH was released from prison for meth and gun possession charges on February 18, 2009. He is a logger in southern Illinois with his sons and shares his message of freedom through Christ to anyone who will listen.
