De tout temps, les survivants aux atrocités les plus indicibles, soupçonnés d'avoir bradé leur honneur, ont été questionnés quant au pourquoi de leur survie. Récemment disparue, la primauté de ce code moral a fait place à une éthique de la survie à tout prix. Cette évolution de notre sensibilité nous oblige pourtant à nous questionner : si l'éthique de la survie devait passer avant celle de l'honneur, ne risquons nous pas de perdre notre âme ? Pendant des millénaires, il fut attendu des victimes confrontées à des circonstances extrêmes que leurs conduites se conforment à des codes d'honneur terriblement exigeants. A-t-il trahi les siens celui qui a survécu à la torture ? A-t-elle trop facilement cédé celle qui a connu le viol ? Ces survivants suspects ont-ils sacrifié leur honneur à leur survie ? Questions traumatisantes, disent certains. Questions pourtant posées avec une surprenante récurrence pendant des siècles et des siècles, comme l'explique Jean-Michel Chaumont. Or, depuis quelques décennies, dans les sociétés occidentales, ces codes d'honneur sont frontalement contestés, et sont même perçus comme d'intolérables blâmes adressés aux victimes. Si tout le monde s'accorde à reconnaître le progrès moral que cette critique fait advenir dans le cas du viol (la morale n'attend plus que la femme victime se justifie de son comportement), elle tend à promouvoir une éthique de la survie à n'importe quel prix dans les situations de péril extrême. Ce livre ambitieux reconstruit les critères qui ont pu départager les conduites honorables et les conduites déshonorantes, et montre, archives à l'appui, qu'il y a peu encore ces critères furent appliqués à des résistants communistes et aux victimes de la Shoah, en particulier les membres des Sonderkommandos. Il signale les évolutions considérables de nos sensibilités morales et pointe les régressions associées au risque d'un " chacun pour soi " décomplexé. Si la trahison devenait la norme implicite, si l'éthique de la survie devait passer avant celle de l'honneur, et de la fidélité aux siens, ne serait-il pas à craindre que le jour venu, face à l'extrême, nous ne perdions nos âmes ?

"Mon père était un fou de glisse et d'apesanteur. Il traquait les ouragans et les tempêtes de neige pour vivre l'extase du surfeur de vagues monstres, du skieur de poudreuse. Il avait soif de sensations fortes, n'en avait jamais assez. Et c'est cela qui m'a sauvé la vie". Dès l'âge de trois ans, Norman Ollestad est initié aux sports extrêmes par un père passionné et charismatique qui le déstabilise autant qu'il l'inspire. Pendant que les autres enfants mènent une vie normale, il est entraîné à ignorer la peur. Cette éducation atypique lui permettra de survivre, seul, perdu sur les pentes verglacées d'une montagne. Naviguant entre le récit haletant du crash et les souvenirs de ce père hors norme, Norman Ollestad livre un témoignage puissant et inoubliable qui explore avec une extraordinaire intensité dramatique le lien complexe d'un père à son fils.

Fifteen-year-old Hanka Kaudersov has ginger hair and clear, green eyes. When her family is deported to Auschwitz, her mother, father and younger brother are sent to the gas chamber. By a twist of fate, Hanka is faced with a simple alternative: follow her family, or work in an SS brothel behind the eastern front. She chooses to live, her Aryan looks allowing her to disguise the fact that she is Jewish. As the German army retreats from the Russian front, Hanka battles cold, hunger, fear, and shame, sustained by her hatred for the men she entertains, her friendship with the mysterious Estelle, and her fierce, burning desire for life. Lovely Green Eyes explores the compromises and sacrifices that an individual may make in order to survive, the way a woman can retain her identity in the face of appalling trauma, and the value of human life itself. This is a remarkable novel, which soars beyond nightmare, leaving the reader with a transcendent sense of hope.

What would you kill for? After a brutal nuclear war, the United States was left decimated. A small group of survivors eventually banded together, but only after more conflict over which family would govern the new nation. The Westfalls lost. Fifty years later, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the losing side to the sons of the winning group in a yearly ritual. This year, it is my turn. My name is Ivy Westfall, and my mission is simple: to kill the president's son—my soon-to-be husband—and return the Westfall family to power. But Bishop Lattimer is either a very skilled actor or he's not the cruel, heartless boy my family warned me to expect. He might even be the one person in this world who truly understands me. But there is no escape from my fate. I am the only one who can restore the Westfall legacy. Because Bishop must die. And I must be the one to kill him...

One of the most extraordinary and poignant survival stories to come out of World War II Misha was only six years old when her parents were taken away from their home in Belgium to Auschwitz. She was given a new name, a new home, and forced into a new religion. No one told her why her parents were no longer with her, only that they had gone East. So one day, equipped only with a tiny compass and a few provisions, she set out East to find them. Misha crossed Belgium, Germany and Poland on foot alone - until, close to starvation in a vast forest, she was adopted by a family of wolves. She ate and played with the wolf cubs, and was protected by their mother. Finally, at the end of the war, she found her way home to Belgium via the Ukraine, Romania and Italy. She never found her parents.

“Readers who have been waiting for a worthy successor to Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games will find it here. Dystopian sci-fi at its best, Starters is a terrific series kickoff with a didn't-see-that-coming conclusion that will leave readers on the edges of their seats . . .” raves the Los Angeles Times. In the future, teens rent their bodies to seniors who want to be young again. One girl discovers her renter plans to do more than party--her body will commit murder, if her mind can't stop it. Sixteen-year-old Callie lost her parents when the genocide spore wiped out everyone except those who were vaccinated first--the very young and very old. With no grandparents to claim Callie and her little brother, they go on the run, living as squatters, and fighting off unclaimed renegades who would kill for a cookie. Hope comes via Prime Destinations, run by a mysterious figure known only as The Old Man. He hires teens to rent their bodies to seniors, known as enders, who get to be young again. Callie's neurochip malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her rich renter, living in her mansion, driving her cars, even dating Blake, the grandson of a senator. It's a fairy-tale new life . . . until she uncovers the Body Bank's horrible plan. . . . "STARTERS is a smart, swift, inventive, altogether gripping story. Callie Woodland, the narrator, deserves a series, and happily I am sure she'll get one!"—Dean Koontz . . Kami Garcia, coauthor of the New York Times bestselling Beautiful Creatures novels said “Fans of The Hunger Games will love it.”

« La crise actuelle se terminera un jour, laissant derrière elle d’innombrables victimes et quelques rares vainqueurs. Pourtant, il serait possible à chacun de nous d’en sortir dès maintenant en bien meilleur état que nous n’y sommes entrés.À condition d’en comprendre la logique et le cours, de se servir de connaissances nouvelles accumulées en maints domaines, de ne compter que sur soi, de se prendre au sérieux, de devenir un acteur de son propre destin et d’adopter d’audacieuses stratégies de survie personnelle. Mon propos n’est donc pas ici d’exposer un programme politique pour résoudre cette crise et toutes celles qui viendront, ni de vagues généralités moralisantes, mais de suggérer des stratégies précises et concrètes permettant à chacun de "chercher des fissures dans l’infortune", de se faufiler entre les écueils à venir, sans s’en remettre à d’autres pour survivre, pour sur-vivre. Et d’abord pour survivre à la crise actuelle.» J. A.
