Priya Rama looks to her migraines for inspiration for her art.
COVER STORY: MigrainesAbout one in seven people live with what’s ranked as the second-most debilitating disease on the planet, right after back pain: migraine. Though the causes are unclear, migraine is a serious neurological disease that often runs in families. But the malady is not often taken seriously, in part because the headaches, sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, dizziness, and a host of other symptoms affect three times as many women as men. Correspondent Susan Spencer talks with doctors grappling with treatments for migraine (and a shortage of migraine researchers), and a Cincinnati artist whose migraine visions have become key to her art.BOOK EXCERPT: “Migraine: A History”Medical historian Katherine Foxhall writes of a disabling disease that is little understood, but which affects one out of seven people on EarthFor more info:Migraine artist Priya Rama: Transforming pain into beautyDr. William Young, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, PhiladelphiaMiles for Migraine”Migraine: A History” by Katherine Foxhall (Johns Hopkins University Press), in Trade Paperback and eBook formats, available via AmazonNational Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NIH) ALMANAC: EsperantoOn February 16, 1905, America’s first club devoted to the constructed universal language was founded in Boston.

Auschwitz survivors returned to mark the 75th anniversary of the Soviet army’s liberation of the death camp, on January 27, 1945.
HISTORY: Auschwitz, 75 years after liberationLast month about 200 survivors of the Auschwitz concentration camp returned to the site where 1.1 million people were murdered – Jews, Poles, Soviet prisoners of war, gypsies, and others. Their ceremony, marking the 75th anniversary of their liberation, was a tribute to the living, and a lament for the dead. Preserving Auschwitz has been the mission of billionaire Ronald Lauder, who first visited in 1987 while he was the U.S. Ambassador to Austria. The chairman of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Foundation and president of the World Jewish Congress, Lauder helped raise $40 million to open a conservation lab at Auschwitz so that objects telling the story of genocide will bear witness long after the survivors of Auschwitz are gone. Correspondent Martha Teichner reports.BOOK EXCERPT: “Survivors Club: The True Story of a Very Young Prisoner of Auschwitz”For more info:Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial FoundationWorld Jewish Congress”Survivors Club: The True Story of a Very Young Prisoner of Auschwitz” by Michael Bornstein and Debbie Bornstein Holinstat (Farrar Straus Giroux), in Hardcover, Trade Paperback, eBook and Audio formats, available via Amazon HISTORY: Yad VashemCut into a Jerusalem hillside is a striking modern memorial to an unthinkable past.
