'I wouldn't dream of trusting my family.' - Anita. In Pakistan, many women who decide to leave abusive marriages are signing their own death warrants. They risk being disfigured or murdered by men who believe it is the only way to restore honor to the family. Authorities in Pakistan rarely respond to reports of honor killing. The Human Rights Commission Pakistan and the Women Action Forum estimate that 1000 women are murdered each year, with little or no response from the government. At the Dastak women's shelter in Lahore, women accused of tarnishing the family honor find a safe haven. Here, receiving both counseling and legal advice. Kubra is one such woman. After enduring repeated beatings, the 28-year-old fled to Dastak. We meet Kubra--armed guard in tow--on her way to a meeting with members of her family. They entreat her to return. Eventually, she agrees. Three weeks later, she is murdered, shot to death in her sleep. Through Kubra's story, and the stories of other women at Dastak, the film creates a portrait of one institution that is protecting Pakistani women, at least the women who can make it there.

Een watervlugge afwisseling van literaire generaties en hun tijdschriften, modes en stromingen, dat is de geschiedenis van de literatuur in Nederland en Vlaanderen tussen 1900 en 1945. Het is de tijd van de opkomst en onderƯgang van totalitaire ideologieën die ook hun sporen nalaten in de letteren. Maar allesbepalend zijn de twee wereldoorloƯgen die de statusƯ quo van de negentiende eeuw vernietigen. Vlaamse dichters trekken in de Grote Oorlog ten strijde 'ineen geur van bloed en rozen'. Oorlog verandert voorgoed de manier waarop schrijvers en dichters in de Lage Landen inde eerste helft van de vorige eeuw naar de wereld kijken. De literatuur in tijden van oorlog, getekend door collaboratie en verzet, is integraal onderdeel van deze literatuur geschiedenis in breedbeeld. Die ruime visie bestrijkt verder bijvoorbeeld het verschijnsel moderniteit, hoge én lage literatuur, jazz, literaire journalistiek, film, radio, maar ook de populariteit van vrouwelijke auteurs en koloniale romans. Er staat in 'Bloed en rozen' geen hek om de Nederlandse letteren. Literatoren in Noord en Zuid lieten zich inspireren door vakgenoten uit het buitenland en ook die 'literaire internationale' hoort bij de geschiedenis van de Nederlandse literatuur.

In this beautiful and uplifting gay romance, two teen track stars discover first love as they train for the biggest relay race of their young lives.

"Ruim vier miljoen Duitse soldaten kwamen in de Tweede Wereldoorlog om het leven. In vele katholieke streken -vooral Beieren en Opperoostenrijk - werden zij na hun vaak zinloze dood herdacht met een bidprent of doodsprentje. Deze prentjes, die na de afscheidsdienst werden meegegeven met familie en kennissen, bieden op een erg persoonlijke manier een schat aan informatie. De auteur, die journalistiek studeerde in Antwerpen en Gelsenkirchen, legde zich jarenlang toe op deze bijzondere tijdsdocumenten en schreef er dit uniek en rijkelijk geïllustreerd boek over. Via een collectie van ruim 700 bidprenten, representatief voor elk stadium van de oorlog, wordt er een nieuw licht geworpen op de Duitse soldaat. Hoe oud waren zij, welke jaargangen zijn onder de slachtoffers het meest of het minst vertegenwoordigd en waarom, uit welke landen en streken kwamen zij en bij welke offensieven zijn ze gesneuveld? Welke onderscheidingen werden het meest uitgereikt, hoe frequent kwamen twee, drie of zelfs meer zonen uit eenzelfde familie om het leven en kan er ook iets gezegd worden over het totaal aantal manschappen dat in de oorlog het leven verloor?"--Cover.
