Jewish pediatricians in Nazi Germany: victims of persecution. (1/15)

The plight and fate of German Jewish pediatricians during the Nazi period in Europe has not received much attention, yet the narratives of the victims still resonate today and they deserve to be remembered. The stories of two women serve as examples of the fateful turns taken by the lives of many German Jewish pediatricians between 1933 and 1945. The two women, Dr. Luci Adelsberger and Dr. Lilli Jahn, illustrate both the ordeals endured and the disparate ways the Nazi policies ultimately spared or ended lives.  (+info)

Mortality of the Iranian ex-prisoners of war in Iraqi detention camps (1980-1990). (4/15)

BACKGROUND: The present study aimed to determine the rate and cause of the mortality of the Iranian ex-prisoners of war in Iraqi detention camps during a ten- year period (1980 - 1990) according to the documented reports. METHODS: The information extracted from the documented death certifications that have been provided by the Iraqi authorities and the Red Cross delegation. RESULTS: At least a total of 564 Iranian prisoners of war died due to the various reasons in Iraqi detention camps that show a mortality rate of 1.4% (564/40,000). The mean captivity-to-death interval was 440 (from one to 3582) days and the registered prisoners had more duration of captivity than the unregistered (1285 vs. 215 days, P= 0.001). The median and mean ages of the individuals at the time of death were 22 and 26.4+/-13 years, respectively. The mean age of the civilians was higher than the others (45.3 vs. 23.7, P=0.0001). The cause of death was not clear for 44.3% of the individuals but among the others, infectious diseases (such as dysentery, sepsis, and meningitis) and injuries (resulting from war injuries and/or torture by Iraqi forces) were the main causes of death with 15.4% and 15.6%, respectively. CONCLUSION: It seems that the mortality of the Iranian ex-prisoners of war in Iraq is more than previously reported. Therefore, more investigation is recommended to determine the exact number of the Iranian prisoners who died in Iraq.  (+info)

Emotional distress and other health-related dimensions among elderly survivors of the Shoa living in the community. (5/15)

BACKGROUND: In prior community studies survivors of the Shoa (Hebrew for Holocaust) scored higher on emotional distress (ED) than Europe-born Jews who were not in Nazi-occupied countries during World War II (WWII). OBJECTIVE: Are elderly Shoa survivors, who by definition have survived the difficulties of a long life, equally distressed? ED was assessed among a population of elderly survivors living in the community, about 55 years after the end of WWII. ED was also examined by the severity of exposure to adverse life conditions during the war. In addition, other health-related dimensions, e.g., sleep disturbances and social activities, were measured. METHODS: A national survey of 5,055 respondents, of whom 4,231 were Jewish-Israelis, was conducted among community residents aged 60 years and over. The research population included former residents of Nazi-occupied countries (N=896). This group was compared with Europe- and America-born individuals who resided elsewhere during WWII (N=331). All respondents were administered, among many other items, the 12-GHQ to measure ED and a questionnaire that included socio-demographic and other health-related variables. Bivariate and multivariate methods of analysis were used to compare distributions and to identify relevant factors. RESULTS: The group of elderly survivors was significantly more distressed than the comparison group. Individuals who had been in ghettos, hiding, or labor or extermination camps had higher mean scores than survivors who were in Nazi-occupied countries, but were spared those experiences. Multivariate analysis showed that the direct effect of the Shoa experience was no longer evident when two other Shoa-dependent variables, years of education and number of chronic health conditions, were entered into the model. Sleep disturbances were more often present in the survivors than among their counterparts, including after controlling for other variables. Social activities that contribute to well-being were more limited among survivors. CONCLUSION: Fifty years after WWII there was partial evidence of increased emotional distress among our group of elderly survivors, and clear evidence for the presence of adverse effects on other health-related dimensions and pleasurable activities.  (+info)

Broken identity: the impact of the Holocaust on identity in Romanian and Polish Jews. (6/15)

The paper is based on interviews conducted with Holocaust survivors in Poland (30 interviews) and Romania (55 interviews). It describes how the Holocaust affected survivor identity. Two aspects of identity are analyzed the sense of personal identity and social identity. Each affects the other but they are largely independent and the trauma of the Holocaust impacted each of them differently. Personal identity seems to be unrelated to either the type of trauma or the survivor's social situation. There are no significant differences in that aspect between Polish and Romanian survivors. Social identity is more related to the survivors' social situation prior to and after the trauma. The sense of identity, both personal and social, is dynamic and changes over time.  (+info)

Extermination of the Jewish mentally-ill during the Nazi era--the "doubly cursed". (7/15)

In Nazi Germany, physicians initiated a program of sterilization and euthanasia directed at the mentally-ill and physically disabled. Relatively little is known regarding the fate of the Jewish mentally-ill. Jewish mentally-ill were definitely included and targeted and were among the first who fell victim. They were systematically murdered following transfer as a specialized group, as well as killed in the general euthanasia program along with non-Jewish mentally ill. Their murder constituted an important link between euthanasia and the Final Solution. The targeting of the Jewish mentally-ill was comprised of four processes including public assistance withdrawal, hospital treatment limitations, sterilization and murder. Jewish "patients" became indiscriminate victims not only on the basis of psychiatric diagnosis, but also on the basis of race. The killing was efficiently coordinated with assembly in collection centers prior to being transferred to their deaths. The process included deceiving Jewish patients' family members and caregivers in order to extract financial support long after patients had been killed. Jewish patients were targeted since they were helpless and considered the embodiment of evil. Since nobody stood up for the Jews, the Nazis could treat the Jewish patients as they saw fit. Several differences existed between euthanasia of Jews and non-Jews, among which the Jewish mentally-ill were killed regardless of work ability, hospitalization length or illness severity. Furthermore, there was discrimination in the process leading up to killing (overcrowding, less food). For the Nazis, Jewish mentally-ill patients were unique among victims in that they embodied both "hazardous genes" and "racial toxins." For many years there has been silence relating to the fate of the Jewish mentally-ill. This deserves to be corrected.  (+info)

Johannes Heinrich Schultz and National Socialism. (8/15)

BACKGROUND: Johannes Heinrich Schultz (1884-1970) established the set of techniques known as "autogenic training." From 1936 until 1945 he worked as assistant director of the Goring Institute. His role during National Socialism has been underestimated in our opinion. METHOD: We considered Schultz's academic publications and his "autobiography" from 1964. RESULTS: Schultz publicly advocated compulsory sterilization as well as the "annihilation of life unworthy of life" and developed a diagnostic scheme which distinguished between the neurotic/curable and the hereditary/ incurable. In fact, this classification was then employed to decide between life and death. In order to justify the "New German Psychotherapy" alongside eugenic psychiatry, Schultz carried out degrading and inhuman "treatments" of homosexual prisoners of concentration camps who were in mortal danger. LIMITATIONS: This study was based on written documents. We were not able to interview contemporary witnesses. CONCLUSION: By advocating compulsory sterilization and the "annihilation of life unworthy of life" and by the abuse of homosexuals as research objects Schultz violated fundamental ethical principles of psychiatry.  (+info)

Sachsenhausen was also a training center for SS officers. Gross-Rosen concentration camp, established in 1940 as a satellite of Sachsenhausen, was actually a network of close to 100 subcamps located in eastern Germany, Czechoslovakia, and occupied Poland.

The Lagerordnung was the "Disciplinary and Penal Code", first written for Dachau concentration camp, which became the uniform code at all SS concentration camps in the Third Reich on January 1, 1934. Also known as the Strafkatalog (Punishment Catalogue), it detailed the regulations for prisoners. SS guards were instructed to report violations of the code to the commandants office. The Concentration Camps Inspectorate was responsible for execution of the resulting punishment, which was carried out without verification of the allegations or any possibility of vindication (see "Procedures for punishing violations"). The early, temporary concentration camps, such as Kemna concentration camp, did not have unified, coordinated regulations, but rather drew their Lagerordnung from regulations then in use at various police departments and prisons run by the justice system. Differences were nonetheless minor. Some banned smoking, others allowed prisoners to receive food parcels or visits from family ...

The Nazi regime targeted all Jews, both men and women, for persecution and eventually death. The regime frequently subjected women, however, both Jewish and non-Jewish, to brutal persecution that was sometimes unique to the gender of the victims. Nazi ideology also targeted Roma (Gypsy) women, Polish women, and women with disabilities living in institutions. Certain individual camps and certain areas within concentration camps were designated specifically for female prisoners. In May 1939, the SS opened Ravensbrück, the largest Nazi concentration camp established for women. Over 100,000 women had been incarcerated in Ravensbrück by the time Soviet troops liberated the camp in 1945. In 1942, SS authorities established a compound in Auschwitz-Birkenau (also known as Auschwitz II) to incarcerate female prisoners. Among the first inmates were prisoners whom the SS transferred from Ravensbrück. At Bergen-Belsen, the camp authorities established a womens camp in 1944. The SS transferred thousands ...
In Nazi Germany, pink triangles (German: Rosa Winkel) were used as one of the Nazi concentration camp badges, used to identify male prisoners who were sent there because of their homosexuality. Every prisoner had to wear a downward-pointing triangle on their jacket, the colour of which was to categorise them by "kind". Other colors identified Jewish people (two triangles superimposed as a yellow star), political prisoners, Jehovahs Witnesses, "anti-social" prisoners, and others the Nazis deemed undesirable. Pink and yellow triangles could be combined if a prisoner was deemed to be gay and Jewish. Originally intended as a badge of shame, the pink triangle (often inverted from its Nazi usage) has been reclaimed as an international symbol of gay pride and the gay rights movement, and is second in popularity only to the rainbow flag. Under Nazi Germany every prisoner had to wear a concentration camp badge on their jacket, the color of which categorized them into groups. Gay men had to wear the Pink ...
Massive bunker walls, up to 8 meters thick. (176k). Terezin (Theresienstadt) is a fortress that was built in 1780, located about 60 km north of Prague. The Nazis used it as a prison and a staging camp for the concentration camps. Some 35,000 Jews died in Terezin of starvation, disease, murder or suicide. Terezin was used as a public relations hoax that fooled the Red Cross twice. It was staged to show that Jews were treated fairly by the Nazis. The truth was of course far from it. In one area of Terezin a mass grave with several hundred bodies was discovered after the war. The dead are now buried outside the fortress.. Auschwitz/Birkenau (Oswiecim/Brzezinka), located in southern Poland, not far from the border to the Czech Republic, were the most notorious concentration camps.

The most consistent line of action of Nazi fascism was the enslavement of peoples and individuals; the liquidation of any freedom. Only one "exception" to this constant preoccupation is known. There is a single circumstance in which the Nazi Reich tough of "liberating" someone. By a decree issues on September 1, 1939 -- the day of unleashing the Second World War -- signed by Hitler, it was decide "to grant freedom through death" to there considered unnütze Esser, useless mouths. That is " of the persons who, within the limits of human mind and after a through medical exclamation will be declared incurable".. The head of the Reich himself argued that the state could not afford the luxury to spend money and material goods to keep alive people "who live without realizing it". They are unnütze Esser, useless mouths. Thus, the famous program of euthanasia was started, known as T-4, after the address of the headquarters of the experts in homicide: Tigerarten &emdash; Strasse &emdash; 4 &emdash; ...
From 1941 onwards, the majority of prisoners in Neuengamme concentration camp came from countries occupied by Germany. Between 1941 and 1942, Polish prisoners were the largest group in the camp; from 1942 and 1943 on, Soviet prisoners were the majority. In total, 90 percent of the prisoners in Neuengamme concentration camp were foreigners. More than half came from Eastern and Central Europe, but there were also large groups of prisoners from France, the Netherlands, Belgium and Denmark. They were imprisoned because they resisted German occupation, because they were slave labourers serving punishment or because they had been abducted as hostages and victims of "acts of retaliation". In 1941, Soviet POWs began arriving at Neuengamme, and in 1944 and 1945 larger groups of Jews from different European countries were sent to the camp ...
Jews and other devalued and dehumanized groups were regarded as fitting "material" for medical and biological experiments that were forbidden under Germanys Guidelines for Human Experimentation (1931) (details above). These included handicapped persons and numerous ethnic and groups who were expelled from German society. Foremost among these were Jews, who were systematically stripped of their rights as citizens and through a series of German Racial Hygiene laws, they were stripped of their property, expelled from schools, forbidden to use telephones, banned from public transportation, exempted from labor safety legislation, allowed limited rations, subjected to forced labor and tax laws, restricted to ghettoes, and beginning in 1941, Jews were required to wear a Star of David on their clothing to readily identify them. These measures were all backed by the academic medical and scientific community.. Jews were relegated to sub-human pariah status; equated with vermin that carry contagion and ...
Scientific experiments were also done in other concentration camps. A decisive fact is that IG employee SS major Dr. med. Helmuth Vetter, stationed in several concentration camps, participated in these experiments by order of Bayer Leverkusen. At the same time as Dr. Joseph Mengele, experimented in Auschwitz with medications that were designated B-1012, B-1034, 3382 or Rutenol. The test preparations were not only applied to those prisoners who were ill, but also to healthy ones. These people were first infected on purpose through pills, powdered substances, injections or enemas. Many of the medications caused the victims to vomit or have bloody diarrhoea. In most cases the prisoners died as a result of the experiments. In the Auschwitz files correspondence was discovered between the camp commander and Bayer Leverkusen. It dealt with the sale of 150 female prisoners for experimental purposes: With a view to the planned experiments with a new sleep-inducing drug we would appreciate it if ...
Latrine in the Womens Camp - BIb. On the wall, Verhalte dich ruhig (Behave yourself quiet). Gisella Pearl, an inmate in BIa described in her book the situation the prisoners faced. There was one latrine for thirty to thirty-two thousand women and we were allowed to use it at only certain hours of the day. We stood in line to get in to this tiny building, knee deep in human excrement. As we all suffered from dysentery, we could rarely wait until our turn came and soiled our ragged clothes, which never came off our bodies, thus adding to the horror of our existence by the terrible smell which surrounded us like a cloud.*. What motivates men and women to treat their fellow humans in this fashion? Places so primitive, so bereft of human dignity, they are really nothing more than what we offer cattle, if that. At least we feed our cattle and protect them from disease. One answer is the SS saw the prisoners as less than human, dehumanized, even not human, merely insects. There was also a ...

January 1915 [corrected 11/24/15] and was a university student at the time of his arrest. Unlike many homosexuals during this time, he had revealed his homosexuality to his mother and was still accepted in his family. Under paragraph 175 of the criminal code Heger was arrested without warning in March 1939 and taken to a prison where he remained for six months with criminal inmates. Although he was promised release after six months he was then transported to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp. He was later transferred to the Flossenbürg camp, where remained until its liberation by US forces in April 1945... Much of Heger s autobiography is devoted to the description of the terrible condition the inmates were forced to survive in and the methods Heger used for survival. Although many men, including Heger, were put into concentration camps because of their homosexuality, this did not prevent other men, not convicted as homosexuals, to participate in homosexual acts. In fact, Heger was able to ...

When the American Nordhausen-Dora process began in Dachau, summer of 1947, there was almost nothing to be seen from the Dora camp. Accused were at Dachau besides 14 members and four Kapos also the Factory-General-Manager George Rickhey. In contrast to the previous American processes in the concentration camp Dachau the Judgements passed down were quite mild. With the former detention camp leader Hans Möser only one was sentenced to death. Georg Rickhey and three other defendants were for lack of evidence acquitted (he, Rickhey, managed successfully to put all the blame on the deceased head of production in the Mittelwerk plant, Albin Sawatzki), and all others received prison sentences, but none of them had to serve the sentences passed down by the Military Court. Even Otto Brinkmann, the former officer in charge of the camp Ellrich-Juliushütte, who was convicted to life imprisonment left 1958 ahead of its full term, the prison of Landsberg am Lech.The Dachau-Dora Trials in their process was ...

Introduction. Families who take care of a mentally-ill family member might experience immense difficulties (Hughes 2005). These families are in desperate need of support and understanding (Hughes 2005). Lately, the tendency of caring for a mentally-ill family member at home is common because of the high costs of institutional care, poor institutional care and limited availability of institutional care (Sreeja et al. 2009).. The main goal of taking care of a mentally-ill family member at home is to enable people with mental health problems to integrate into society and lead normal lives (Hsiao & Van Riper 2010). As a consequence of this unexpected shift, the families of mentally-ill family members were given an unexpected caregiving role for which they were both untrained and unprepared (Corsentino et al. 2008). As a result of this, families and healthcare providers had to form new partnerships to provide care to mentally-ill family members.. Caring for an individual with a mental illness in ...
Are you being manipulated by your own ignorance of the history of "National Socialism?" Read this all-telling quote written by the prolific journalist Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge regarding the Lefts idiotic comparisons of the Southern U.S. border to the actual Concentration Camps of WWII:. Tweets childishly mocking political opponents and regulations preventing a small number of self-declared trans people from joining the Army have nothing to do with Dachau. To cite 2019 border facilities or exaggerate the historical impact of a march in Charlottesville is to turn Dachau relative, the dial jiggered to magnify some other event. It makes people numb; it dumbs down discussion; it is cheap, inaccurate, and exploitative. It demands mighty outrage from a partial set of facts. Both butterflies and elephants have legs, but no one should claim a butterfly is an elephant.. Thats the plan from the Left. Theyre going to further dumb down the National Socialists who want free everything and spread the ...
It was outrageous to me that the adults would cave to the intimidation. My passion for not backing down was as a student broadcast journalist and the lessons Id learned making our first film, We Must Remember. In response to that film, it was white supremacists who were angry and contacting us, but we didnt drop the project. The documentary was about American teens who discover the horrors of the Holocaust first hand by interviewing survivors, traveling to several concentration camps in Europe, and interviewing German teens with Nazi grandparents. The Academy Award winning producer for Schindlers List, Branko Lustig, took our team to Croatia for the international premiere. There the filmmakers had the opportunity to speak to Serbian, Muslim, and Croatian teens about the lesson we learned. We Must Remember was made to promote tolerance and alert people to the dangers of bullying, while teaching history from a peer-to-peer approach. How could we back down from a topic because of bullying after ...
In this remarkable, never-before-told account of the Ovitz family, seven of whose ten members were dwarves, readers bear witness to the best and worst of humanity and to the terrible irony of the Ovitzs fate: being burdened with dwarfism helped them endure the Holocaust. Israeli authors Yehuda Koren and Eilat Negev weave the tale of a beloved and successful family of performers who were famous entertainers in Central Europe until the Nazis deported them to Auschwitz in May 1944. Descending into the hell of the concentration camp from the transport train, the Ovitz family known widely as the Lilliput Troupe was separated from other Jewish victims. Dr. Josef Mengele was notified of their arrival and they were assigned better quarters and provided more nutritious food than other inmates. The authors chronicle Mengeles experiments upon the Ovitzs, and the creepy fondness he developed for these small people, even the songs he composed and sang to this family of singers, dancers, and klezmorim. ...
By Nathan Grubman. Usually reminiscences from the Holocaust mean tales of terror and of brutality, which can never be properly told because no language in the whole world has the words adequately to describe what has happened. Some forty odd years have passed since. One would think that all stories that possibly could have been told have already been told and there is nothing more left to say. Not so. This is a yet untold story about a speckle of individual compassion and humanity, which sparkled in that time of darkness and indifference. It is a story about one nameless hero who, in his own ever so small way, while putting his own life on the line, eased the agony, and saved the life of an equally nameless victim - prisoner number 86916. It was early summer of 1944. I had not yet turned seventeen and already was a veteran of several concentration camps. My left hand, badly injured in a factory accident, was wrapped in old papers and rags. It was a painful reminder of the last slave labor camp, ...

First, a confession: I have never read the X-Men comics. I have never seen the X-Men movies. I am an X-Men virgin. So the fact that I liked X-Men: First Class, the fifth installment in the 20th Century Fox/Marvel big screen franchise, can be seen as either my fabulous, intuitive taste or hopeless naivete, depending on your position. Naturally, I prefer the former.. I realize that die-hard fans-especially comic book nerds-can get crazy about the integrity of the film adaptation, from overall plot points to minute details such as the precise color of a characters hair or breastplate insignia, and admittedly I cant comment on that. Hell, I dont even know if X-Men: First Class has real fanboy roots or if its just a creative spin-off, a Muppet Babies for the ComiCon set. But its big, its flashy and its fun to watch-what more could you ask of a summer blockbuster, really?. X-Men: First Class opens with a scene set at a concentration camp in Poland during the Holocaust, during which Kevin Bacon, ...
WASHINGTON - A secret history of the United States governments Nazi-hunting operation concludes that American intelligence officials created a "safe haven" in the United States for Nazis and their collaborators after World War II, and it details decades of clashes, often hidden, with other nations over war criminals here and abroad.. The 600-page report, which the Justice Department has tried to keep secret for four years, provides new evidence about more than two dozen of the most notorious Nazi cases of the last three decades.. It describes the governments posthumous pursuit of Dr. Josef Mengele, the so-called Angel of Death at Auschwitz, part of whose scalp was kept in a Justice Department officials drawer; the vigilante killing of a former Waffen SS soldier in New Jersey; and the governments mistaken identification of the Treblinka concentration camp guard known as Ivan the Terrible.. The report catalogs both the successes and failures of the band of lawyers, historians and investigators ...
However, Likud Party leader Benjamin Netanyahu actively curries their favor (see July 1-2, 1994). On the floor of the Knesset, he often attacks Rabin (see September 21, 1993) for giving away "parts of our homeland." After one particularly fiery speech, thousands of right-wing protesters gather in Jerusalems Zion Square, where they put of posters of Rabin wearing a Nazi SS uniform, display banners calling Rabin "Arafats Dog," and chant, "Death to Rabin! Nazis! Judenrat!"-a particularly odious epithet referring to the "Jewish councils" that were forced by the Nazis to expedite the transfer of Jews to concentration camps. Housing Minister Benjamin Ben-Eliezer is horrified by the frenzy of the mob, and tells Netanyahu, who is orchestrating the demonstration, "Youd better restrain your people. Otherwise it will end in murder. They tried to kill me just now.… Your people are mad. If someone is murdered, the blood will be on your hands.… The settlers have gone crazy, and someone will be murdered ...
would translate well on the big screen, particularly given the thinness of basic plot. Fortunately, the movie does not disappoint in this regard. Todd Bowden (Brad Renfro) is an high school student who, after being fascinated by Nazi history, finds an honest-to-goodness Nazi General, Kurt Dussander (Ian McKellen), living in his town. Todd confronts Dussander, who is living under the assumed name of Arthur Denker, and blackmails him into revealing the gory details of the atrocities the Nazi committed during the war. In his quest for knowledge, Todd ignores his schoolwork and lets his mid-term grades slip, thus risking exposure of his after-school activities. At this point, Dussander suddenly turns the tables by pretending to be Todds grandfather and making a deal with his guidance counselor: Todd must get straight As in the finals in exchange for his poor mid-term grades being wiped off of his record. Dussander then uses the skills he acquired running a Nazi concentration camp and drives Todd to ...
Because trying to make sure that parents who make a potentially damaging health decision about their child have at least been made aware of the potential adverse consequences of that decision is just like Nazi Germany. After all, the penalty is much like the Nazis favored methods of punishment: brutal prison, concentration camps, and execution (often by guillotine). Oh, wait. Its not anything like that at all. All it says is that a child who doesnt get all the mandated vaccinations or doesnt have a valid religious or philosophical exemption cant attend public school. Fascists! Nazis! Schneider doesnt even understand what actually happened a couple of days ago. It wasnt that AB 2109 passed. The bill was only approved by the California Senate Health Committee, which means that it will now go to the full Senate to be debated and voted on. If the Senate approves it, it will then go to the governor to be signed into law.. Next up, Schneider goes into a predictable (from an antivaccine ...
Viktor Frankl was a Jewish psychiatrist who spent three years during World War II living under unspeakable circumstances in several of the most notorious Nazi concentration camps.
One of the inspirations for Kathleen writing Unspeakable Things was when she was in France at a time when the French were coming to terms with the "unspeakable things" that occurred during World War 2, such as turning over their Jews to the Nazi occupiers even before the Nazis asked for these. She had always been interested in merging the two identities she had felt she had - her American identity and her European identity - and she went to France in an attempt to do so, which worked out. It was while she was being given a ride home by one of her female students, during her first year of teaching in France, that the latter remarked that her father and grandfather had been guards at the first French concentration camp for Jews (Drancy?) and that she had seen scratches made by the fingernails of people who were desperate to get out. Kathleen found this confession unusual, and her French colleagues remarked that that student wouldnt have told them about that ...
After the German invasion of the Netherlands in May 1940, a civil administration was installed under SS auspices. Arthur Seyss-Inquart was appointed Reich Commissar. He presided over a German administration that included many Austrian-born Nazis. They in turn supervised the Dutch civil service. This arrangement was to prove fateful for the Jews of the Netherlands. During 1940, the German occupation authorities banned Jews from the civil service and required Jews to register the assets of their business enterprises. In January 1941, the German authorities required all Jews to register themselves as Jews. A total of 159,806 persons registered, including 19,561 persons born of mixed marriages. The total included some 25,000 Jewish refugees from the German Reich. A Jewish council was established in February 1941. The arrests of several hundred young Jews (sent to the Buchenwald and Mauthausen concentration camps) led to a general strike by Dutch workers on February 25, 1941, and a hardening of Nazi ...
On January 27, 1945, the concentration camp in Auschwitz was liberated. By May of the same year, around 20 similar camps had been discovered. What they revealed is so shocking that it is difficult to put it in words.. Today, on HOCOCAUST MEMORIAL DAY, I quote (shortened and slightly modified) from articles I published many years ago (references can be found in the originals) to remind us of the unspeakable atrocities that occurred during the Nazi period and of the crucial role the German medical profession played in them.. The Nazis euthanasia programme, also known as "Action T4″, started in specialized medicinal departments in 1939. Initially, it was aimed at children suffering from "idiocy, Downs syndrome, hydrocephalus and other abnormalities". By the end of 1939, the programme was extended to adults "unworthy of living." We estimate that, when it was stopped, more than 70,000 patients had been killed.. Action T4 (named after its address: Tiergarten Strasse 4) was the Berlin ...
Its a fact George Bushs grandfather was a partner in an investment bank. Its a fact one of the hundreds of clients at that bank at which he was a partner was the personal account of a German national who had, at one time, given money to the Nazi party ... and its a fact said client (of which we have no evidence Prescott Bush was even aware) was subsequently expelled from the Nazi party for publicly opposing the German invasion of Poland, had to flee the country, was captured and sent to a concentration camp ...
Mario Capecchi was born in Verona, Italy, as the only child of Luciano Capecchi, an Italian airman who would be later reported as missing in action while manning an anti-aircraft gun in the Western Desert Campaign,[12] and Lucy Ramberg, an American-born[13] daughter of Impressionist painter Lucy Dodd Ramberg and German archaeologist Walter Ramberg. During World War II, his mother was sent to the Dachau concentration camp[13] as punishment for pamphleteering and belonging to an anti-Fascist group.[14] Prior to her arrest[15] she had made contingency plans by selling her belongings and giving the proceeds to a peasant family near Bolzano[12] to provide housing for her only child. However, after one year,[16] the money was exhausted and the family was unable to care for him. At four-and-a-half years old he was left to fend for himself, living as a street child on the streets of northern Italy for the next four years,[12] living in various orphanages and roving through towns with groups of other ...
With his internationally acclaimed films The State I Am In, Yella and Jerichow, Christian Petzold established himself at the forefront of the group of contemporary German filmmakers known as the Berlin School. Following the success of his previous film, Barbara, Petzold returns with another story of a fiercely determined woman-and the deeply divided society to which she belongs-caught between a tragic past and an uncertain future.. Emerging from a concentration camp at the end of World War II, Nelly Lenz (played by the formidable Nina Hoss, Petzolds regular star) undergoes significant reconstructive surgery to repair a facial injury caused by a bullet wound. Nelly wants everything to be exactly the way it was before the war-including her appearance-but it is not. Presumed dead by her friends and relatives, fixated on the memories of her former life and unable to accept the shattered reality before her, Nelly returns to Berlin to fulfill the dream that sustained her throughout her imprisonment: ...
Jackson successfully ran for Congress as a Democrat in 1940 and took his seat in the House of Representatives with the 77th Congress on January 3, 1941. From then on, Jackson did not lose any congressional election.. Jackson joined the Army when the United States entered World War II but left when Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered all representatives to return home or resign their seats. He visited the Buchenwald concentration camp a few days after its liberation in 1945. He attended the International Maritime Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1945 with the American delegation, and he was elected president of the same conference in 1946, when it was held in Seattle, Washington. From 1945 to 1947, Jackson was also the chairman of the Committee on Indian Affairs.. In the 1952 election, Jackson relinquished his seat in the House for a run for one of Washingtons Senate seats. Jackson soundly defeated Republican Senator Harry P. Cain and remained a senator for over thirty years. He was Washingtons ...
After the Second World War Indonesia fought the Netherlands for its independence, which it won in 1949. The peace treaty provided for a federation of Indonesian states, but the Indonesian government changed this to a unitary state and Moluccan nationalists declared the Republik Maluku Selatan (RMS) to be an independent state in 1950. Indonesian forces invaded the islands and a bloody civil war began. Moluccan soldiers, who had fought with the Dutch and were garrisoned in Java and Sumatra, were evacuated with their families on a temporary basis to the Netherlands in 1950. The Dutch government undertook to negotiate Moluccas independence from Indonesia, and once this was achieved, the Moluccans would return there. The 12,500 Moluccan soldiers and their families were placed in former Nazi concentration camps at Westerbork, Vught and elsewhere in the Dutch countryside The soldiers were discharged from the army but initially forbidden to work. Peaceful protests gained them little or no support from ...
Thats right, this sweet and beautiful film is about nazis and concentration camps and all the terrible things in the second world war.

Emperor Hirohito and the Japanese government decided to build a secret state-of-the-art chemical and biological warfare testing center in the province of Pingfang. The project was started in 1934 and the complex was completed in 1939. The Japanese government had originally named the facility, Epidemic Prevention and Water Purification Department of the Kwantung Army. The name of the complex was changed to Unit 731 in 1941. The prison camps were filled with prisoners of war from Russia, China, South East Asia, America and from captured British soldiers.. The complex can best be described like a Nazi concentration camp encompassing a cluster of buildings, which made up the laboratory complex, surrounded by prison camps. It was built in an uninhabited area and the local population was prohibited from entering the area. The official explanation was that the Japanese government had built a large lumber mill and declared it a military zone for security reasons.. The Japanese government allocated the ...
Shawn Doherty - 10/01/2008 12:25 pm In February 2004, Benjamin Thompson was sent to Abu Ghraib to guard Iraqi prisoners. Two months after he arrived, photos of grinning American soldiers torturing and sexually abusing naked Iraqis were leaked to the world. Thompson saw nothing like that at Abu Ghraib. What he did see, he says, was worse.. The public was told the problem was resolved when a few people were prosecuted, the decorated war veteran told a recent gathering of anti-war activists in Madison. But the culture and the political reality that turned Abu Ghraib into a concentration camp was never addressed. Nothing in the camp really changed.. In a series of interviews with The Capital Times, Thompson described a system with no clear rules or leadership where thousands of Iraqis were held indefinitely without charges. Where they were left out in the open desert, surrounded by razor wire, to die during mortar attacks. Where inept contractors failed to put locks on prison gates and fed ...
The Frank family moved from Germany to Amsterdam in the early 1930s when the Nazis gained control over Germany the Netherlands. In May 1940, Germany invaded the Netherlands and the government began to persecute Jews by the implementation of restrictive and discriminatory laws; mandatory registration and segregation followed.. On the morning of Monday, 6 July 1942 as Anne Franks father was unable to get the family out of the country, they went into hiding. The family hid in concealed rooms in the building where Annes father worked. The doorway was hidden by a book case. The family spent two years in hiding, during this time Anne documented her thoughts, feelings and daily life in hiding.. In August 1944, the group was betrayed and transported to concentration camps. On arrival, Anne and her family were forced to strip naked to be disinfected, they had their head shaved, and was tattooed with an identifying number on her arm. By day, the women were used as slave labour hauling rocks, digging and ...
For example, in the seven paragraphs released by a British court summarizing observations by British counterintelligence agents of the treatment of Binyan Mohamed by the CIA, the first two of these paragraphs stated:. It was reported that a new series of interviews was conducted by the United States authorities prior to 17 May 2002 as part of a new strategy designed by an expert interviewer….. BM had been intentionally subjected to continuous sleep deprivation. The effects of the sleep deprivation were carefully observed. [emphasis added]. The suggestion was that a new strategy was being tested and the results carefully examined. Several detainees have provided similar accounts, expressing their belief that their interrogations were being carefully studied, apparently so that the techniques could be modified based on the results. Such research would violate established laws and ethical rules governing research.. Since Nazi doctors who experimented upon prisoners in the concentration camps were ...
In the spring of 1945 Germany went down into chaos and defeat. In Germany itself, occupied by its enemies, slave labor, concentration camps, starvation, imprisonment without charge, and executions did not disappear with the Nazis. The revelations of the death camps, spread around the world in April 1945 by newsreel ...
HOW DOES CYANIDE AFFECT RESPIRATION? During WWII prisoners in Nazi concentration camps were killed in gas chambers using Cyclon B. This gas contained CYANIDE, an noncompetitive inhibitor of the enzyme cytochrome c oxidase. Cyanide binds to the iron cofactor in this complex and prevents the passing of electrons from cytochrome c oxidase to oxygen at the end of the electron transport chain. EXPLAIN WHY THIS WOULD KILL SOMEONE. PROVIDE EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT YOUR CLAIM.
If orphans who spent their first years in a Nazi concentration camp can become productive adults (Moskovitz, 1983) and if young children made homeless by war can learn adaptive strategies after being adopted by nurturing families (Rathbun, DeVirgilio, & Waldfogel, 1958; Winick, Meyer, & Harris, 1975), then one can question the belief that the majority of insecurely attached l-year-olds are at high risk for later psychological problems. Even the behavioral differences among animals in laboratory settings are not very stable from infancy to reproductive maturity: "The findings offer meager support for the idea that significant features of social interactions at maturity are fixed by experiences in early development" (Cairns & Hood, 1983, p. 353). This conclusion affirms a discovery, now more than 20 years old, that even the stereotyped, bizarre social behaviors of 6-month-old isolated macaques can be altered by placing them with younger female monkeys over a 26-week period (Suomi & Harlow, 1972). ...
By Whitney Webb. Bayer, who made it rich selling heroin to children and financing Nazi concentration camps, is set to pay over $128 a share to buy the worlds most notorious GMO seed company.. German pharmaceutical and agrochemical company Bayer has finally succeeded in its attempts to buy US GM seed company Monsanto. The merger will create a company that commands more than 25% of the worlds agricultural market for seeds and pesticides.. Bayer first attempted to buy Monsanto for $62 billion this past May but was unsuccessful as Monsanto demanded more money following its failed takeover of the worlds largest GM seed company Syngenta. Antitrust authorities in the US and the EU still have the ability to prevent the merger, the possibility of which has kept Monsantos real value well below Bayers offer of $128 per share.

I found the city much cleaner, more organised and a bit more expensive. The euro can do miracles! Tours about the Nazi or red Berlin are at hand nearly in every angle of the city, new hostels (including ours) flourished like mushrooms. Even an organised tour to Sachsenhausen is now available! The aspect that most stroke me was that at the time it was almost taboo to talk about Nazism or you had to be very careful about the choice of terms. When my dad came to visit me, we went to Sachsenhausen, one of the first concentration camps used as a model for the others. It lies in the north part of the city, in a rather secluded place, not very easy to reach by publich transports. I was not even aware of its existence until my dad mentioned it. We caught the underground and then we had to change two buses to get there. On the way I asked for directions: "Entschuldigung, wissen sie wo die koncentration camp ist, bitte?" (Do you know They would correct me by saying: "Meinst du die Denkmal?" Of, course ...
The Reader is a film based on the 1995 German novel of the same name by Bernard Schlink, and tells the story of law student Michael Berg, who re-encounters his former lover as she defends herself in a war-crime trial stemming from her actions as a guard at a Nazi concentration camp.. The screening of The Reader will be followed by a panel discussion and an opportunity for a Q&A session with experts in psychology debating the concepts present in the film.. Visiting lecturer and Module Leader Bryan Bonaparte commented on the purpose of the Psychology at the Movies series, saying:. "Using movies is proving to be very effective. This has led firstly, to me setting up the Psychology Film Club in our Department at Cavendish Campus and now to the idea of using movies to learn and debate perspectives of psychology and human behaviour, not just with students and staff but for the wider public.. "The mere act of movie-watching can improve mood (emotional), serve as a bonding experience with friends ...
To the Germans in Mayers study, each occasion of Nazi violence was worse than the last, but only a little worse. So they waited for the one shocking event, thinking that they would join with others if or when it happened. But as the violence escalated, no one rose up to condemn the concentration camps and general oppression. No one wanted to act alone, and when a mass uprising failed to occur, the common people just let events take their course, progressively losing the ability to understand the horror of Nazism and the will to oppose it ...
Lichtenburg was among the first concentration camps in Nazi Germany operating from 13 June 1933, it became a kind of model for numerous subsequent .... ...
By: James Felman, MD I have often wondered what the Nazi doctors felt like when they donned their white coats and stood on the platform directing new arrivals at the concentration camps to life or death. How did their value system become so deranged as to allow or encourage physicians to become comfortable with their…
Robertss latest work--A History of the English-Speaking Peoples Since 1900--sounds like a standard-issue neocon narrative. As a sequel to Winston Churchills famous series, it purports to tell the story of how the "Anglosphere" (Great Britain, the United States, Australia, and friends) saved the world from a slew of totalitarian menaces, from the kaiser to the caliphate. It presents Bush as the logical successor to Churchill--only Bush is, of course, even better. Yet, beyond this surface sycophancy, there is something darker and more fetid. Bush, Cheney, and--in a recent, glowing cover story--National Review, have, in fact, embraced a man with links to white supremacism, whose book is not a history but an ahistorical catalogue of apologies and justifications for mass murder that even blames the victims of concentration camps for their own deaths.. ...snip.... Roberts advises Bush to embrace the idea of the United States as a civilizing empire ruling the world: the white mans burden in the ...
In Peru, evidence is piling up that the murderous Shining Path narco-terrorist group has been financed and armed by WWF. At minimum, Shining Path has served as the WWFs enforcers in areas like the Upper Huallaga River Valley, the worlds premier cocaine-producing region and an area dense with ecologically protected areas (4). In the Apurimac Reserved Zone (5), the Peruvian Army recently discovered mass graves and concentration camps run by Shining Path. The victims of the Shining Path brutality: the Ashaninka Indians. As far back as the mid-1960s, WWF had targeted this area of Peru as an ideal site for a future protected area. The obstacle was the Ashaninka, who had farmed and hunted the area for centuries, and were apparently open to modernization and integration into Peruvian society. Shining Path moved into the area in the 1980s, after 1.6 million hectares had been set aside as the Apurimac Reserved Zone and began the systematic murder and enslavement of the Ashaninka. All done under the ...
From our modern perspective, WW II and its results ensued from the ideology of an evil madman and his administration. Hitler, though, did not see himself as evil, but as mankinds benefactor. He felt that many years hence the world would be extremely grateful to him and his programs, which lifted the human race to genetically higher levels of evolution by preventing mixed marriages with inferior races. His efforts to put members of these inferior races in concentration camps was not so much an effort to punish but, as his apologists repeatedly stated, was a protective safeguard similar to quarantining sick people to prevent contamination of the community. Or, as Hoess (1960, 110) adds, such a struggle, legitimized by the latest scientific views, justifies the racists conceptions of superior and inferior people and nations and validated the conflict between them.. Some Conclusions. Although many factors produced the fatal blend which produced the Nazi movement, Darwins notion of struggle for ...
Along those lines, I was reading an older blog of Geneen Roths this morning, and she quotes the Austrian psychiatrist Viktor Frankl, who survived the Nazi concentration camps as he said "what is to give light must endure burning." I understand the fire, the pressure, the pain so much more clearly now. I had fire and pressure and pain before but now I know not to deflect it or avoid as my defense mechanisms kick in, it but to take it, whether I have to get up off the ground and stand back up again and again but to take it and accept it. AND I have experienced glimmers of the light. My mechanisms for coping are so much stronger than before. And this is the kicker, the pain, the fire will keep coming. I use to think oh, I made it through this, I made it through that, nothing else "bad" can happen. It will and it does. That is not pessimism but the reality of life. I see the joy all around me, but it is intermixed with the pain. One of my favorite movie lines is from "Steel Magnolias." (Do you see ...
The reason, Carl, for imagining all the bad things that will happen, when theres enough bad things already going on is that we dont consider the coming bad things to simply to be projections of our imaginations. I certainly agree with you about suffering and torture and I also do not relish being separated from my family and placed into prison. That is exactly why I wish to be certain that my actions are based on what I really believe. That is why the discussion should be encouraged now before we are faced with prison. People who use herb should understand how bad prison is and be sure that HERB is truly a SACRAMENT for them in the context that their faith would include the Grace neccessary to endure such trials. I think that I have shared this story with you before. It has to do with PREPARATION. Corrie Ten Boon went through the Nazi concentration camps and survived. She relates this story: In China the Christians were told, Dont worry, before the Tribulation comes you will be ...
And so, a poor but happy and carefree future may yet await a great many of us, both idle rich and idle poor-one happy though rather impoverished family. But in order to achieve that we would have to change the culture. Let it be known that free lunch is a very good thing indeed, no mater whos eating it or why, and never mind that Lenin said that "He who does not work, does not eat." And while we are at it, lets also dispense with the hackneyed adage that "Work will set you free" (Arbeit Macht Frei) which the Nazis liked to set in wrought iron atop the gates of their concentration camps. Let us consign the communists and the fascists and the capitalists to the proverbial scrapheap of history! Let us instead gratuitously quote Jesus: "Behold the lilies of the field, how they grow. They labor not, neither spin. And yet for all that I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his royalty, was not arrayed like unto one of these... Therefore take no thought saying: What shall we eat? or What shall we ...
In the concentration camps for adults, they wear the clothes they arrived in and have no showers. The smell is so bad that those who work there often wear masks and carry the stench with them when they go into town. In some, the only food is bologna sandwiches or things that are rotten and the inmates become ill. In one camp, nine hundred people are imprisoned at a facility designed for 125; cells designed for 35 people are holding 155. They cannot lie down. They are pressured to sign documents in English they cannot read. The one source of running water in the cell is the single open toilet, where one defecates in the crowd.. *. The head of an anti-immigrant group, the Federation for American Immigration Reform, says the administration doesnt want the detention experience to be Club Med.. *. On any given day there are at least 50,000 adults being held in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention centres; at least 20,000 held by Customs and Border Protection, and between 11,000 and ...

Jeremiah 50:16 Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handleth the SICKLE in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land.. Jeremiah 50:23 How is the HAMMER OF THE WHOLE EARTH CUT ASUNDER AND BROKEN! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!. BABYLON = the HAMMER and SICKLE !. Carl Marx, once wrote that the goal of the Communists was, to quote, "enter into mens minds and cast God down from his throne.". The 20th century was the bloodiest period in human history, with world wars, genocide, concentration camps, the development of chemical and nuclear weapons, bombings, guerilla wars, and terrorist activities unheard before. As a result of this savagery, the number of dead is estimated in the hundreds of millions.. Why was the last century so bloody? First, advancing technology led to the development of weapons much more lethal than earlier ones. But the second ...
Helen Bamber was 20 years old in 1945 when, as she put it, her journey began. The second world war was over, but countless victims remained. Bamber, who lived in London, wanted to help them. She joined the Jewish Relief Unit and was dispatched to Germany to work at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.. When liberated in April 1945, the camp held 60 000 starving and diseased inmates, and 13 000 corpses that had not been buried. Conditions were so horrific that an additional 4000 inmates died after liberation. When Bamber arrived months later, the original camp had been burned to the ground in an attempt to halt a raging typhus epidemic and lice infestation. Remaining inmates were moved to the nearby German Panzer Divisions barracks.. Bamber, who was less than five feet tall, later recalled seeing "awful sights, amputees, gangrene, festering sores." She saw women who had lost loved ones, "pounding the floor, sobbing, pulling their hair, banging their heads against the wall." She listened as ...
In June/July 2003, the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) sent a mission to Iraq. They found that approximately 48% of the population were food insecure and that while starvation had been averted "chronic malnutrition problems persist especially among vulnerable groups including children and mothers due to a lack of nutrition diversity". They emphasised that only a marked improvement in the economy as a whole would change the situation because, although there was potentially enough food in Iraq, half the population lacked the buying power for a sustained nutritious diet. This was due to unemployment, chronic poverty and the absence of a head of household. Now, a year on, this situation has deteriorated on all three counts. Unemployment has risen; many more men have either been killed or are detained in concentration camps leaving women to fend alone, and chronic poverty is worsened by a substantial rise in prices and the absence of any state subsidies. A ...
Chemtrails is a recent phenomenon I started to observe around 2009. At this time I had very little knowledge about geoengineering or even basic chemistry. I then started to familiarize myself with such phenomenons as they began to occupy further lines of dissipated white lines across unaffected clouds. I then further observed the phenomenon, and noted down the dates of such "phenomenons" taking guess on their physical attributes and noticed they were from man-operated aircrafts or some kind of cloaked aerial origin. (geoengineering, synthetic biology) WW2 (World war 2) was for me a couple of popular American movie scenes including films and other things dealing with Jews being intoxicated with poisonous gas in concentration camps. I was not very interested in them and neither in the chemotherapy eugenic "science" which resulted in thousands of deaths. (chemotherapy) ...

How is this the Wests fault? If couples in China and India choose to selectively abort girl fetuses using Western technology, this is no different than Asian countries fighting wars against each other using Western technology. Moreover the selective abortion of girls in India is already a violation of Indian law since passage of the 1994 "PTND" Act. Technology is neutral; how it is used is up to individuals. Barbed wire was invented for cattle fencing, which made animal husbandry - and therefore improved diet for humans - possible on a larger scale. It also made the stalemate on the Western Front during World War One so bloody and drawn out. Since it is cheap, easy to install and can be electrified, it also made the economical operation of modern concentration camps possible.. Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors are highly effective insecticides. They were invented in order to improve crop yields by eliminating insect pests. They also proved the basis for the development of nerve agents; Tabun was ...
INTRODUCTION. The hospital-centered model, characterized by overcrowded mental institutions, segregation, guardianship, and therapeutic processes grounded on the lack of care and ill treatment of mentally disabled individuals received deserved criticism after the end of World War 2. Mental institutions at that time were even compared to concentration camps, given the institutions precarious care and disrespect of human rights(1). This reality demanded a reformulation of care practices and provoked the proposition of a new model towards caring for the mentally ill: the psychosocial model. However, the consolidation of this model involves the deconstruction of long-held ideas and ways of thinking about mental health, as well as the transformation of practices and manners of speech that continue to reinforce the diseases object-based character. The rationalist, reductionist, problem-solving-based paradigm still shapes our social relationships. Therefore, the deconstruction of the physical ...
Jerusalem Post) Israeli-born author Tuvia Tenenbom has called for the dismissal of Volkhard Knigge, the head of the Buchenwald concentration camp memorial in Weimar, Germany, after alleging that Knigge told him that Jews should have settled in Uganda instead of establishing the State of Israel.

The killing of prisoners was also accompanied by research into the changes that occur in the human organism as a result of starvation--in particular, liver atrophy ("braune Atrophie"). This research was carried out at Auschwitz Concentration Camp by SS-Obersturmführer Johann Paul Kremer, M.D., Ph.D., professor at the University of Münster, where he lectured on anatomy and human genetics. At the Block No. 28 clinic in the main camp, he carried out assessments of prisoners attempting to gain admission to the hospital. Many of them were at the point of exhaustion, in the "Musselman" state, in the final stages of starvation to death. Kremer ordered most of them killed by phenol injection. Kremer selected prisoners who struck him as particularly good experimental material, and questioned them just before their deaths, as they lay on the autopsy table awaiting injection, about such personal details as their weight before arrest and any medicines they had used recently. In some cases, he ordered ...
1945: During post-war efforts to bring scientists who worked for the Third Reich into the United States, the US War Department obeys President Trumans order to exclude scientists who supported Nazism, rather than rewriting candidates files to conceal the evidence. The United States and the Soviet Union divide the German scientists with more equality. In particular, the Soviet Union acquires Arthur Rudolf, former operations director of the Mittelwerk factory at the Mittelbau-Dora concentration camps.. January, 1946: Rather than anticipating a post-war crisis of overproduction in the USA, Soviet economists predict that the United States will try to avoid the crisis by maintaining its wartime military industry and trying to open the new Europe and Asia to free trade. Based on their advice, Stalin now views the United States as the chief threat to the Soviet Union, instead of the reemergence of Germany or Japan. Continue reading. ...

And on and on. Those of us who have served in the military know very well what kind of a rumor factory a camp can be. All sorts of things are spread from one person to the next. Nobody questions what he hears, and usually he asks someone else for confirmation who is just as clueless. Needless to say, the misinformation problem was much worse in a concentration camp with the crematories next door, in the middle of a war. And the prisoners had no way of knowing the truth.. Now, what is most interesting is that there are two women who actually saw their fathers after they had been told that they were dead. The first talked with him for a while and later received a note from him before eventually losing all contact (p. 27). The second found out that her father was at Buna and perished during the retreat (p. 143).. So, most of the survivors are not lying. They fell victim to the rumors that were rampant at the camps. Here is another well-known rumor:. ...

cAMP and Ca2+ are key regulators of exocytosis in many cells, including insulin-secreting pancreatic β-cells. Glucose-stimulated insulin secretion from β-cells is pulsatile and driven by oscillations of the cytoplasmic Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i), but little is known about the kinetics of cAMP signaling and the mechanisms of cAMP action. Evanescent wave microscopy and fluorescent translocation biosensors were used to monitor plasma membrane-related signaling events in single MIN6-cells and primary mouse β-cells. Glucose stimulation of insulin secretion resulted in pronounced oscillations of the membrane phospholipid PIP3 caused by autocrine activation of insulin receptors. Glucose also triggered oscillations of the sub-plasma membrane cAMP concentration ([cAMP]pm). These oscillations were preceded and enhanced by elevations of [Ca2+]i, but conditions raising cytoplasmic ATP triggered [cAMP]pm elevations without accompanying changes in [Ca2+]i. The [cAMP]pm oscillations were also synchronized ...
March 30, 2006. A secret concentration camp in Sujiatun, China has stockpiled thousands of Falun Gong practitioners who are being killed for their organs, say two separate witnesses. They say the organs are removed at an adjacent hospital, the Liaoning Provincial Thrombosis Hospital of Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine, while the prisoners are still alive. A subsequent investigation has provided corroborating details.
In The Diary of a Young Girl-one of the most touching books ever written about life under fascism-Dutch teenager Anne Frank observed, "Extraordinary things happen to people who go into hiding." Published in 1947 with an introduction by Eleanor Roosevelt, Franks diary awakened the world to the daily lives of Jews hoping to escape concentration camps and gas ovens. Franks story was sentimentalized on stage and in the Hollywood movie, but the book itself resonated-it still does-with gritty realism and the kinds of details that just will not die.… That same year, 1947, saw the publication of Every Man Dies Alone, the last novel to be written by Hans Fallada, the lost man of twentieth-century Germany literature. Like Franks Diary, Falladas Every Man alerted readers around the world to the corrosive force of fascism and the extraordinary things that happen to people in hiding. The main characters are not Jews; they are neither religious, nor do they spout Marx, Engels, or Rosa Luxemburg. Every ...
Nearly 300 synagogues were burned, 7,000 Jewish businesses and homes destroyed and 30,000 Jews rounded up and sent to concentration camps. The theater, incidentally, has been reconfigured for this dance to reflect Karps vision of the stage as a boulevard of event, actions, moments: The audience faces Artauds huge wall of factory windows and the eerie yellowish crime lights outside the theater. The rest of Currans score is on tape, an arresting chorus of sounds that range from the prayers of Yemenite Jews at the Wailing Wall and a bar mitzvah recitation to unlikely quotations from Verdis Va, pensiero (from Nabucco) and Strauss On the Beautiful Blue Danube. Two women touching hands brought images of the loss of loved ones, and even just running to a window and waiting carried all the horror of an uncertain world outside.
As one account of a visit to the DPRK states " The imperialists claim that there are hundreds of thousands of people held in camps in the DPRK , such camps would have to be massive and with a huge number of guards but I did not see such a thing in the DPRK countryside. Moreover the DPRK is very peaceful and calm you rarely see emergency vehicles rushing through the busy streets. If it what the imperialists say about "human rights " and " forced labour camps " in the DPRK was true, then you would say police or security personnel on the streets arresting many people and putting them in lorries to go to "labour camps " or "concentrations camps " but I saw no such thing happen. I did not see heavily armed police on the streets that you sometimes encounter in London , either on the streets or at railway stations or at airports . Indeed I was able to go for a walk near the Mansudae Assemby Hall the home of the DPRK Supreme Peoples Assembly , the highest organ of legislative power in the DPRK and ...
Description: In 1942, the lonely German Johann travels through the arid roads in the country of the Northeast of Brazil in his truck selling aspirins in small villages, using advertisement movies to promote the medicine. He meets the drifter Ranulpho, who intends to go to Rio de Janeiro seeking a better life, and gives a ride to the man. While traveling together, they develop a close friendship, but on 31 August 1942, Brazil declares war to Germany and Johann has to decide if he should return to his home country and fight in the war, or stay in Brazil in a concentration camp; but the option of moving to Amazonas with the migrants of the drought seems to be feasible. ...
Each box contains a set of bricks, that can be used to build the element of a concentration camp as shown on the box. All elements in the sets as well as those depicted on the boxes have either been taken from the mass-produced sets of LEGO bricks, or have been slightly altered by the artist. The prisoners are played by smiling skeletons from the "Pirate" set, while slightly modified figurines from the "Police Station" set appear as tormenters. In the upper-left corner of each box we find the following statement: "This work by Zbigniew Libera has been sponsored by Lego" - as the project was made possible thanks to the bricks presented by the polish department of the Danish company. Upon its presentation in Denmark, LEGO headquarters has launched legal complaints against the artist, however as a result of a fierce press campaign it has decided to drop the lawsuit. The controversies concerning Liberas LEGO also appeared in Poland, yet those where of a somewhat different character. ...
It felt good going back with her-regardless of how intolerably devastating visiting a concentration camp was. The fact that she survived, along with my grandmother, aunt and uncles-the fact that she was living evidence against the perpetrators of the Holocaust-was kind of uplifting.

LTM with some crucial reissues of works by a late-period master of the analogue synth epic genre. Bernard Szajner worked as a visuals designer and lazer expert for Gong, Magma, and Klaus Schulze. His first venture into music-making, 1979s Visions of Dune was inspired by Frank Herberts s.f. epic and its swirling clouds of drone and unearthly melodies would have made for a much superior O/S/T for the ill-starred David Lynch movie than the dismal score by Toto. Superficial Musics first side consists of four tracks of ever-more formless wuthering made using the source tapes for Visions of Dune played backwards at half speed and then tweaked with effects; the second side is a triptych titled Oswiecim after the Polish word for Auschwitz (Sjazners being a Polish Jewish family who managed to narrowly evade being deported to concentration camps) and lives up to its harrowing inspiration. Some Deaths Take Forever, which came between Visions of Dune and 1981s Superficial, is not quite as astonishing ...
its all about the narrative - the big lie - concentration camps (gulags) are for nationalists who do not buy the big lie - and the big lie here is it is police who are responsible for killing blacks, when in Chicago alone last year 2000 blacks were killed by other blacks. We neednt get into the history of the social engineers who created the regressed black inner-city self-destructive underclass or that there are 50% more unemployed blacks now than in 2008 - but this failed social experiment to ghettoize blacks on a Democrat voter plantation is linked to the lie now that black inner city cultures degenerative outcome is the product of racist police ...
Tatiana Navka and her dance partner performed in striped pajamas and six-pointed yellow stars that were worn by Jewish concentration camp prisoners.
Coercion is a somewhat ambiguous term within process theology. In their standard metaphysical discussions, process theists usually define coercive power as the power to bring it about that another entity is totally devoid of any degree of self-determination. But they uniformly agree that every entity always possesses some degree of self-determination (freedom). Thus, process theists uniformly deny that any entity, divine or human, can coerce in this sense.. But coercion has a different, weaker meaning in normal human discourse. Take, for example, the common contention that Hitler acted coercively when he placed Jews in concentration camps or the claim that parents are acting coercively when they finally pick up their recalcitrant children and make them go to bed or the common contention that a government is acting coercively when it refuses to give its citizens any input into the formulation of the laws by which they are governed. In such cases, the claim is not that Hitler or parents or ...
This is the story of Sim Kessel and his plight in the Auschwitz and Birkenau concentration camps. He was in the French resistance but the bulk of the book takes place after his arrest by the NazisSim tells you his experience as they transported him to the camps where he was packed and left for days with corpses and people urinating and defecating on themselves. His time working the long stressful labor they had at the camps. His rations of soup that was almost water and his thankfullness to find a potato in it every once in a while. He battled disease from malnutrition, doing his best to sustain on 500 calories a day while working all day ...

Are FEMA camps so far fetched that they are to be called a conspiracy theory of the crackpot right? I sure seem to recall that about two years ago, Obama pushed through an executive order authorizing such camps in cases of national emergency. Note, I do not call them concentration camps as they are supposedly going to be used to house people after calamities like Katrina. Seemingly, at least to me, that they might be implemented in an Ebola outbreak does not seem far fetched. Nor does it seem far fetched, if there is truly a huge outbreak, that the government by way of militarized law enforcement would seize food and other supplies from the citizenry (also authorized by executive order). Besides signing the executive orders authorizing such, add the fact that Obama recently said the CDC will send in a CDC SWAT team to scoop up the patient(s) when they are advised that anyone has contracted Ebola. For some reason, that seems to add to the concerns that, if this Ebola outbreak gets much worse, the ...

The exact nature of a Czech-run camp where hundreds of Roma-mainly children-died from disease, hunger or abuse during the German occupation has long been a polarising issue for the nations politicians. But the stench of the pig farm built above the mass graves of the Lety u Pisku concentration camp back in the 1970s has now, metaphorically speaking, travelled all the way to Brussels.

The Dozy household became very involved in the underground movement to help people escape deportation; and in May 1943 her father was imprisoned for 9 months in the German Vught concentration camp in the Netherlands for his involvement in those activities. In 1952 Ms. Dozy took a hematology research position in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Groningen, beginning a 46-year career in medical research. Ms. Dozys lifelong studies were devoted to the biochemistry and genetics of hemoglobin, the red pigment that carries oxygen in red blood cells. First with Professor J.H.P. Jonxis in Groningen, and then with Professor Titus Huisman in Augusta, Georgia, Ms. Dozy described the structure of the hemoglobin molecules and their abnormalities. Ms. Dozy was a member of The American Society of Hematology, the American Society of Human Genetics, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the New York Academy of Sciences, and the Dutch Association of Medical Technologists.
My mother-in-law, Sarah, survived Auschwitz, but at age 76, cancer of the pancreas did her in. Being a physician, I was involved, along with my husband, Fred, in her medical care during the final months. One afternoon, Fred and I attended an oncology appointment with Sarah.. "Mrs. Davidowitz, tell me, when you were in the camps, were there any toxins in the air where you worked?" Dr. Levin asked. He threw out the question, seemingly comfortable discussing the concentration camps. The office, cluttered with books, charts and diplomas, smelled of cleaning solution. My mother-in-law, barely 5 feet tall, sat in an oversized chair across the desk from Dr. Levin.. "Oh no, the munitions factory where I worked was clean, very clean," Sarah said. She peered at the doctor, hoping he would like her response.. "Did you smell chemicals in the air?" asked the doctor.. "No chemicals," she said.. "Do you remember names of any materials they used in the factory?" he gently prodded.. "Names, I dont know. But ...
About the memorial: Memorial sculpture group to the memory of prisoners of war and victims of concentration camps 1914-1945, c.1967-69 by Fred Kormis, sited at Gladstone Park, Dollis Hill. This group comprises five fibreglass resin sculptures with bronze powder. Four male seated figures occupy a series of stepped platforms, with a fifth standing at the margin of the group. The platforms are clad in dark brindled brick paviours and surrounded by a cobbled surface of pebbles set into cement with a paviour border. The group is set against a sloping wall of shuttered reinforced concrete, painted white. Although the seated figures are arranged in contrasting postures they depict male figures of similar appearance, with swaddling-like wound strips of clothing, as if the same individual is shown at different states or conditions. Kormis described the sequence of figures as a five-chapter novel, each chapter describing a successive state of mind of internment: stupor after going into captivity; ...

Unethical human experimentation violates the principles of medical ethics. It has been performed by countries including Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan, North Korea, the United States, and the Soviet Union. Examples include Project MKUltra, Unit 731, Totskoye nuclear exercise,[18] the experiments of Josef Mengele, and the human experimentation conducted by Chester M. Southam.. Nazi Germany performed human experimentation on large numbers of prisoners (including children), largely Jews from across Europe, but also Romani, Sinti, ethnic Poles, Soviet POWs and disabled Germans, by Nazi Germany in its concentration camps mainly in the early 1940s, during World War II and the Holocaust. Prisoners were forced into participating; they did not willingly volunteer and no consent was given for the procedures. Typically, the experiments resulted in death, trauma, disfigurement or permanent disability, and as such are considered as examples of medical torture. After the war, these crimes were tried at what ...
The modern republic of Austria came into being in 1918 as a result of its defeat in World War I. In its wake, the empire was split into many components. They included Austrias current borders, an independent Hungary, lands given to Italy (South Tyrol, Trieste and Trentino), lands given to southern Poland (which also came about from lands taken from the Russian and German Empires), and an independent Czechoslovakia and the northern and western half of Yugoslavia. Following an unresisted invasion and annexation by Nazi Germany in 1938, Austria more or less functioned as a part of Nazi Germany during the Second World War. Thus, a large proportion of the population supported Hitler and Austrias incorporation into Germany. Austrian soldiers also fought in the Wehrmacht. Cities were bombed heavily by the Allies and concentration camps also existed on Austrian soil (such as Mauthausen near Linz).
In 1943, the Jewish population of Thessaloniki was estimated at 56,000 individuals. By the end of World War II, only 1,950 remained and/or returned to the city. The near decimation of the Thessaloniki Jewish community has recently become the focus of many studies. These studies can be divided into two major groups: those that analyze the various aspects of Holocaust in Thessaloniki and those that give voice to individuals who suffered during this period. Steven Bowmans The Holocaust in Salonika, Eyewitness Accounts is a compendium of three personal accounts: those of Yomtov Yacoel, Dr. Isaac Aaron Matarasso, and Salomon Meir Uziel. Bowman provides an introductory essay, and the personal accounts are translated from Greek and Judeo-Spanish by Isaac Benmayor. Benmayor also provides introductory comments and notes for each of the accounts. This book attempts to shed light on the events of the period, the internal conflicts within the Jewish community, and some of the hopes, fears, and suffering ...

by Jonathan Sarfati. Contemplating the atrocities in East Timor, Kosovo, Bosnia, and Rwanda, many have wondered if the murderers could be brought to justice. But then, whose justice? This question was faced half a century ago when Nazi leaders were tried at Nuremberg after WWII. As Hitler was dead, Hermann Göring was the top surviving Nazi on trial. He claimed that the Nazis were on trial only because they lost the war, not because they were guilty of any crime-a trial of the victors over the vanquished.1 After all, the Nazis own laws permitted persecution of the Jews.. In his stunning opening address, the Chief U.S. Prosecutor, Justice Robert Jackson, appealed to moral as well as legal wrong and the moral sense of mankind.2 Jackson clearly recognized that the Nazis had violated a higher, universal moral law against mass murder, no matter what their own laws said.. But how can there be an absolute moral law without an absolute moral Lawgiver? Jesus Himself noted in Mt. 15:19 that evil ...
Bibliometrics and Citation Analysis From the Science Citation Index to Cybermetrics (eBook) : De Bellis, Nicola : Can the methods of science be directed toward science itself? How did it happen that scientists, scientific documents, and their bibliographic links came to be regarded as mathematical variables in abstract models of scientific communication? What is the role of quantitative analyses of scientific and technical documentation in current science policy and management? Bibliometrics and Citation Analysis: From the Science Citation Index to Cybermetrics answers these questions through a comprehensive overview of theories, techniques, concepts, and applications in the interdisciplinary and steadily growing field of bibliometrics.Since citation indexes came into the limelight during the mid-1960s, citation networks have become increasingly important for many different research fields. The book begins by investigating the empirical, philosophical, and mathematical foundations of bibliometrics,
