Despite it being over 200 years since the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade, there are more slaves today than at any other point in human history.

By Gordon Kerr

Hotels. We stay in them for a variety of reasons – for business, for pleasure or, perhaps, as we are passing through a town or city on our way to somewhere else. They provide a brief respite in such a journey or a place to retreat from the cares of a busy day. For some unlucky souls, however, they are the end of the line, the last place where they will ever lay their heads.

When we think of Gurkhas we think, not only, of brave soldiers fighting for Britain but also of a race of people. However, there is no such thing as a Gurkha in the ethnic sense – the word is, in fact, a corruption of Goorkha, a small town and one-time state in north-west Nepal.

More than 170,000 British prisoners of war were taken by German and Italian forces during World War II, enough men to populate modern-day St Lucia.

As Winston Churchill learned the full horror of the Nazi atrocities, he reportedly said, ‘This is a crime that has no name’.

The term ‘genocide’ was coined by Raphael Lemkin, a Polish lawyer of Jewish descent, who lost most of his family in the Holocaust.

‘It’s not winning silver; it’s losing gold’, says a famous Nike ad, hammering home the painful truth that posterity has little compassion for those who finish second. They are, more often than not, expunged from history, years – perhaps even decades – of grinding toil and desperate hope cast into the dustbin of history.

The phenomenon of outlaw biker gangs has its origins in the United States in the years immediately following the end of World War II, when many young men purchased motorcycles – usually Harley-Davidsons – and took to the open road. They formed clubs and developed their own code of practice based on the celebration of freedom, nonconformity and, in particular, loyalty to the group and its members.

Wrongly Convicted
By Jennifer Davies
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 18,080. Language: English. Published: October 9, 2013 by RW Press. Category: Nonfiction
We all have a fear of being accused of something we didn’t do and being punished accordingly.

Sometimes, however, this occurs on such an unfathomably huge scale that it results in our freedom being taken away from us.

The use of spies during war has a very long history, going back to the beginnings of warfare itself.
