This book deals with the true heroes of one the most repulsive and disgusting times in world history. The compilation of stories in this book are not so much about the survivors who tell the stories, but about the heroes who risked their lives and well being to come to the aid of others so these stories could be told. There are heroes such as Mr. DeJong who searched for days for his missing daughter.
They included many doctors, lawyers, professors, scientists, and writers, but no Nobel prize winners. I worried about al. And they were more likely to have earned a Ph. Compared with the math aces, until I met someone with an IQ of year-olds scoring high on verbal aptitude were more likely to have become humanities and, honestly, he was a bit professors or written a novel Park et al.
Children with extraordinary academic gifts are sometimes more isolated, introverted, and in their own worlds Winner, Critics note that tracking by aptitude sometimes creates a self-fulfilling prophecy: Critics and proponents of gifted education do, however, agree on this: Some are especially good at math, oth- Yano was playing Mozart by age 4, aced ers at verbal reasoning, others at art, still others the SAT at age 8, and graduated summa at social leadership.
Educating children as if all cum laude from Loyola University at age were alike is as naive as assuming that giftedness 12, at which age he began combined is something, like blue eyes, that you either have Ph. One need not hang labels on Chicago. What evidence are you using to support your view?
Why is this endeavor of question- able value? Genetic and Environmental Influences on Intelligence What does evidence reveal about hereditary and environmental influences on intelligence?
All Intelligence runs in families. Are our intellectual abilities mostly inherited? Or are they molded by our environment?
Few issues arouse such passion or have such serious political implications. This could lead to those on top believing their intellectual birthright justifies their social positions.
But if mental abilities are primarily nurtured by the environments that raise and in- form us, then children from disadvantaged environments can expect to lead disadvan- taged lives.
In support of the genetic contribution to intelligence, researchers cite three sets of findings: The scores of fraternal twins, who typically share only half addressing the genetics of g than their genes, are much less similar.
Likewise, the test scores of identical twins any other human characteristic. Nature and nurture The For simple reaction time tasks that measure processing speed, estimates range most genetically similar people have the most similar intelligence scores.
Data from McGue that their brains unlike those of fraternal twins are virtually the same in areas et al. Intelligence ap- pears to be polygenetic, meaning many genes seem to be involved, with each gene accounting for much less than 1 percent of intelligence variations Butcher et al.
But other evidence points to the effects of environment. And fraternal twins, who are genetically no more alike than any other siblings—but who are treated more alike because they are the same age—tend to score more alike than other siblings. So if shared environment matters, do children in adoptive families share similar aptitudes?
Seeking to disentangle genes and environment, researchers have compared the in- telligence test scores of adopted children with those of their adoptive siblings and with those of a their biological parents, the providers of their genes, and b their adop- tive parents, the providers of their home environment.
During childhood, the intelli- gence test scores of adoptive siblings correlate modestly. Over time, adopted children accumulate experience in their differing adoptive families. So would you expect the family environment effect to grow with age and the genetic legacy effect to shrink?
If you would, behavior geneticists have a surprise for you. Mental similarities be- tween adopted children and their adoptive families wane with age, until the correla- tion approaches zero by adulthood McGue et al.

Heroes of the Holocaust. Although some Jews fell into the hands of the Gestapo, many were saved through the courageous acts of people like the four listed above. Because of these wonderful heroic acts of love and brotherly kindness, we still have Jews who live today.
