We should all know these things - but like me, you're probably resigned to being the kind of person that just never will.

But this is no boring Willy, Willy, Harry, Ste. With Ed leading the way on unlikely adventures through people and places, Abraham Lincoln may become a circle of bra-wearing hams linking arms in your mind, and you may well encounter a fridge wearing Calvin Klein underpants. You could also soon find yourself rattling off the prime ministers to a rapt audience and adding, in a knowing tone, 'ah yes, Marquess of Rockingham, Whig I believe?'.

Sentenced to Remember is a memoir by William Kornbluth, a Polish Jew who grew up in the city of Tarnow, survived four concentration camps, and emigrated to America, where he lives today in retirement, lecturing and writing. He and his two brothers, Simon and Natan, are one of the few cases of three brothers surviving together in four successive death camps. This book is not just the story of the Holocaust as told through the eyes of a survivor. It is a literary reflection which captures the vanished world of Eastern European Jewry through the everyday events of the 1930s in a Jewish quarter. As Hitler's hate propaganda inflamed the traditional anti-Semitism of the Polish and Ukrainian population, Kornbluth's family grew up, sharing family problems, finding careers, getting married, and surviving in a provincial and dangerous world. The description of the Nazi "selection" days contains some of the most terrifying events in the memoir. Also included is the story of Bill Kornbluth's wife, Edith, another Holocaust survivor, whom he met and married in the United States. Edith's father, Pinia, was respected by the Polish peasants, and they helped him and his family to survive; they lived like animals in the large forests by the estate that Pinia had previously administered. Edith was sent out of the woods to impersonate a Christian servant. Edith's parents were betrayed and shot just weeks before the war's end. Kornbluth's story of the daily life in the death camps is a chilling reminder of the Nazi horrors. This account shows how man was able to keep his dignity in surroundings where torture and death were common occurrences. Finally, Sentenced to Remember is the story of the war's aftermath. Kornbluth and his brothers wandered about Europe, often in danger, until they settled on America as their future home. His sister Bronka's last request, to write of the past, haunted him. This book is the final result.

Why can't I remember what my parents just asked me to do? Why do I feel stressed out at school when the teacher is writing on the board and talking at the same time? And what can I do about it?

These issues can make them feel frustrated or bored, as working memory and intelligence are two very different things. Kids with working memory problems can also act out in the classroom and at home. In this child-friendly and authoritative guide, international working memory expert Dr Tracy Packiam Alloway walks you through what working memory is, what it feels like to have problems with your working memory, and what you can do about it. She presents key tips and strategies, such as the benefits of eating chocolate or of barefoot running, that will help children both at home and at school, and includes a section at the end for adults describing how we can test for working memory issues.
