A World War II hero returns to Germany to solve a mystery -- and meet an enemy - CNN

Saturday, December 8, 2018

It was March 6, 1945, and Smoyer was part of the Allies' last push into Nazi Germany. The lanky 19-year-old with a mop of curly hair was part of a tank crew that had crawled into the German city of Cologne for what would become the US Army's biggest house-to-house fight in Europe. The Germans called it "Endkampf," the final battle for their homeland."Gentlemen, I give you Cologne," Smoyer's commander announced over the radio. "Let's knock the hell out of it!" Smoyer didn't need any added motivation. Before he entered the shattered city, he'd received word that his cousin and his wife's brother had both been killed in the war. Those bastards are going to pay, he vowed. Now he intended to fulfill his promise. His M26 Pershing tank had just been engaged in a shootout with a German tank at a sprawling intersection in the town's center. But then the enemy tank ducked behind a building. Smoyer searched for it, scanning a hellish urban landscape of rubble, sagging streetcar cables and collapsed bu...

Death of German fuels fears of far-right violence in Köthen - DW (English)

Saturday, December 8, 2018

Pro Violence, one of the speakers insisted this wasn't a neo-Nazi demo, and media reports to the contrary were the work of the "Lügenpresse" (lying press). That denial was repeated at the "march of mourning" from the town's central square to the playground led by thepopulist Alternative for Germany (AfD) and joined by some of the neo-Nazis from Monday's demo, swelling the numbers to a group of about 500. At the playground, a wreath was laid by a local AfD leader, who called on the marchers to disperse peacefully as soon as they had paid their respects. Despite the AfD's insistence that this was not a political event and no speeches were held or AfD flags displayed some of the demonstrators carried signs that said Saturday's death was "Merkel's integration" at work, or wore T-shirts that read "multiculturalism kills." Köthen lies about 160 kilometers (100 miles) southwest of Berlin Far-right rise The incident had already raised fears of comparisons with Chemnitz two weeks ago when another deadly fight triggered far-right demos and violence. But there were also calmer heads in Köthen on Monday. "It was in the major media outlets, and then it got round really quickly," said Dennis Krüger, a young man who was also paying his respects at the playground. "And it got bigger and bigger because of the Chemnitz thing, and I think if it hadn't been for what happened in Chemnitz it wouldn't have got so big in Köthen." Köthen's mayor, Bernd Hauschild, told DW his town would not become a "second Chemnitz." "There has always been solidarity between all parties here," he said.

What started out as a war of words resulted in a 35-year-old man being stabbed to death. Hours later, spontaneous, anti-migrant protests took over the streets of Chemnitz. How the Chemnitz protests unfolded German-Cuban killed A German-Cuban man was stabbed in an altercation involving 10 people, several of whom were of "various nationalities," police sources said. The victim, named only as Daniel H., was apparently well-known among various political groups in the area. Two men in their 30s were also stabbed and seriously injured, and a 22-year-old Iraqi and 23-year-old Syrian are in custody over the killing. How the Chemnitz protests unfolded Police reinforcements called By Sunday afternoon, some 800 people had gathered to protest the man's death, including far-right groups. Authorities said the crowd was largely uncooperative and threw bottles at police officers. Police reinforcements had to be called in from nearby cities. The mobilizations were spontaneous and are thought to have surfaced following calls to demonstrate on social media. How the Chemnitz protests unfolded Misinformation German authorities said that that far-right groups spread misinformation on the internet. Among the false claims was that the...

A guide to the best exotic marigolds - Financial Times

Saturday, December 8, 2018

This year is the Year of the Marigold. You may have been thinking of it as the year of drought, forest fires and snow in March but marigolds will brighten your view of it. The plant has been declared the flower of the year by Fleuroselect, the assessor of bedding plants for worldwide use. It declared 2017 the Year of the Zinnia, just in time for slugs and snails to eat the young zinnias when I bedded them out. Marigolds leaves are more pungently flavoured. Slugs attack some of them, but not all, and rarely kill them outright. In their branded year, marigolds are on display at four main sites. One is in Erfurt in Germany, another is in the Jardin des Plantes in Paris. The third site is at the RHS garden at Wisley, Surrey, where visitors are invited to vote on the varieties on display, and the fourth is at the Cotswold Wildlife Park near Burford in Oxfordshire. Among its animal and reptile houses, the bedding in its walled garden is always worth admiring. As it is near to my garden, I have been to check it out. Some 146 varieties are being trialled side by side. The family of marigolds has a most surprisin...

Bavaria election: German conservatives lose their fizz - BBC News

Saturday, December 8, 2018

AfD's anti-Islam stance, CSU Prime Minister Markus Söder ordered that crosses should be hung in all state buildings. Bavaria orders crosses in state buildings Germany's far right march en masse Bavaria key facts Nearly 13 million inhabitants and the biggest by area of Germany's 16 federal states Capital Munich is Germany's third-largest city, after Berlin and Hamburg Second-highest GDP out of 16 German states Historically conservative region, with strong Catholic and local traditions Industrial powerhouse: car and IT sectors especially strong, rich in family-run firms While support is nowhere near the levels seen in eastern Germany, AfD has made gains here and is likely to enter the state parliament for the first time. The CSU's leaders have echoed its terminology - Markus Söder speaking of "Asyltourismus" (asylum tourism) - and AfD's anti-migration policies. CSU leader Horst Seehofer nearly scuppered Mrs Merkel's coalition government twice - by insisting on a cap on the number of people seeking asylum in Germany and then pushing plans to turn people away at the borders, in defiance of the German chancellor. It hasn't worked. Germany's far right on the march in the east Germany country profile Migration politics continues to be a source of public protest and concern but, even as far-right sympathisers take to the streets of places like Chemnitz, they are mobilising others too.More than 20,000 people, horrified by the political tone in the run-up to this election, took to Munich's streets for an anti-hate demonstration last week. And many are turning to the Green party.It's on course to do far better than AfD and take second place. The Greens' leaders are coy for now about such a prospect, but a coalition with the weakened ruling CSU is likely. On Christian Meidinger's chicken farm, green fields roll to the horizon - a reminder that this is a rural state. He's voting Green. "Bavaria has changed," he says. "Many - whether it's those who were born here or those who moved here - don't feel that connected to its traditions. The CSU missed the boat, didn't change with the people. And now it tries desperately to reclaim Heimat and Bavaria, but society has moved on - you can't turn back time." Angela Merkel will be keeping a close eye on Bavaria. What happens here won't affect her immediately - beyond perhaps a face change at the coalition table, should the CSU oust its leader, Horst Seehofer. But this election illustrates the complexity of the challenge faced by so many of Europe's large established parties. It's not simply the rise of the far right. It's that voters are walking away in favour of smaller, newer movements. Bavaria's political landscape, once a near certainty, is fragmenting fast. With a force the old centre can no longer resist.

Driving Germany's 'Romantic Road' - Condé Nast Traveler

Thursday, March 15, 2018

Main to the Alps in the 1950s, when it needed a bit of post-war positivity; it's said the earliest visitors were "friends and families of American soldiers stationed in the large bases in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg." Americans still flock here, as do Asians, Europeans, and even Germans themselves, and though main attractions can get crowded, there are more than enough quiet corners of castles and cobblestoned alleys in 12th-century towns for everybody.The Trip: Three days, 285 milesStarting in Munich, head southwest toward Füssen at the beginning (or end) of the Romantic Road, and from there, go north to the wine city of Würzburg.What to DriveFor the love of all that is good and muscle-bound, please rent a fast German car. A BMW, an Audi, a Mercedes—doesn't matter. Just pick one and don't let the rental car company try to give you something compact. You'll be on the Autobahn for the initial stretch of the drive out of Munich, and you'll feel safer in a ride with a big engine when everyone else is going 120 mph. Plus, who goes "wooo!" in a Geo on the Autobahn?Day 1: Follow the commuters zooming south out of Munich on A96 toward Füssen and, nearby, King Ludwig II's Neuschwanstein Castle in Schwangau, known as the real-life inspiration for Disney's Sleeping Beauty palace. The 19th-century Romanesque Revival up on the hills does set the fairy-tale tone for this 285-mile ride, though before that, the drive is all highway, all business. You can either start the touristing straight a...

Die neuen Herren der HSH Nordbank

Thursday, March 15, 2018

Deutsch spricht – sehr großzügige Bonusansprüche. Auch die Bawag hat sich jetzt mit einem kleinen Anteil von gut zwei Prozent an der HSH beteiligt. Bereits im Dezember hatten die Österreicher die in Baden-Württemberg tätige Südwestbank mit etwa 650 Mitarbeitern und rund 100.000 Kunden übernommen."Möglicherweise werden die neuen HSH-Eigentümer versuchen, auf dem deutschen Markt durch Kooperationen oder Zusammenschlüsse größere Einheiten zu bilden und dadurch Mehrwert zu schaffen", sagt Faust. Auf dieses Motiv könnte auch die Tatsache hindeuten, dass Cerberus auch an der Deutschen Bank und der Commerzbank mit drei beziehungsweise fünf Prozent beteiligt ist. Das ändere aber nichts daran, dass Deutschland als Bankenmarkt "sehr wettbewerbsintensiv" sei.Das sieht auch ein Banker so, der sich gerade mit den Verhältnissen im Norden exzellent auskennt: Haspa-Chef Harald Vogelsang. "Der Vorstand der HSH Nordbank hat erklärt, man wolle sich auf das Geschäft konzentrieren, das für kleinere Sparkassen zu groß und für Großbanken zu klein ist", so Vogelsang. "Aber genau dieses Kundensegment der klassischen Mittelständler haben auch schon viele andere Banken als attraktiv für sich entdeckt. Die HSH Nordbank wird es dort nicht leicht haben." Nach Einschätzung des Haspa-Chefs ist der Verkauf der HSH schon deshalb eine einschneidende Veränderung für Norddeutschland, "weil die neuen Eigentümer der Bank keinen Bezug zu dieser Region haben und es somit keinen Gleichklang der Interessen mehr gibt."© Hamburger Abendblatt 2018 – Alle Rechte vorbehalten..small-print__copy {display: block; font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 0.7em; margin: 1em 0 1em;} .r-teaser-content {/*background: #E4E4E3;*/ padding:5px 0; display: inline-block; width: 100%;} .r-teaser {margin: 3em 0 4em;} .r-teaser img {display: inline-block; float: left; margin-right: 10px;} .r-teaser strong {display: inline-block; color: #006e27; font-family: Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: 24px; margin: 20px 0 0 -4px;} .r-teaser p {color:#333; font-size:14px!important; font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif} .r-teaser a {float:none; color: #333; text-decoration:none;} .r-teaser p a {color: #333;} .r-teaser p .more {color: #006e27; margin-left:5px ; text-decoration:underline;} .article .r-teaser-content p a {border-bo...

Cerberus, der Höllenhund: Was wir über den HSH-Käufer wissen -

Thursday, March 15, 2018

Deutschen Bank, womit Cerberus dort viertgrößter Anteilseigner ist. Bereits 2006 hat Cerberus die Mehrheit der österreichischen Bawag übernommen, die ihrerseits im vergangenen Jahr die Südwestbank in Baden-Württemberg gekauft hat. Cerberus beteiligt sich weltweit an Unternehmen und ist auch im Immobiliengeschäft aktiv.Der Name: Das Unternehmen ist benannt nach dem dreiköpfigen Höllenhund Kerberos oder Zerberus, der in der griechischen Mythologie den Eingang zur Unterwelt bewacht. Feinberg soll der Gedanke gefallen haben, dass einer der drei Köpfe immer wach ist – so wie sein Fonds immer wach sein soll für gute Investments.Der Zweite im Bunde: Bei der HSH Nordbank mit im Boot ist auch der US-Investor J. Christopher Flowers, der bereits seit mehr als zehn Jahren an dem Institut beteiligt ist. Feinberg und Flowers kontrollieren künftig rund 80 Prozent der Anteile an der Bank. zur Startseite...

Why Germany comes alive with religious bombast on Fronleichnam

Saturday, June 24, 2017

The first Fronleichnam procession was held in the year 1270.Where is it celebrated? If you are lucky enough to live in Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, Hesse, Saarland, Rhineland-Palatinate or North Rhine-Westphalia, you have a holiday on Thursday because of Fronleichnam. If you live anywhere else, more fool you for picking a part of Germany where Martin Luther got the upper hand.A water based parade in Staffelsee, Bavaria. Photo:: DPAWhen is it celebrated? Fronleichnam is always celebrated on the second Thursday after Whitsun. It is really a sort of delayed celebration of the Last Supper which took place on Maundy Thursday. According to Dom Radio, the radio station of the Cologne Cathedral, celebrating the fest on Maundy Thursday wouldn’t befit the reflective nature of Easter. Catholics in states that don’t have a public holiday have their processions on the following weekend.How is it celebrated? Differently in different places. In Fritzlar in north Hesse, the celebrations start on Wednesday night with the so-called Katzenkoppschießen. During this ceremony, the eight bells of the town cathedral are rung and a canon is fired, a ritual that is repeated three times. In Cologne, there is a procession involving over 100 ships, while in Bamberg 18 men carry a huge cross through the town.A floral carpet in Hüfingen, Baden-Württemberg. Photo: DPA Generally the fest is celebrated with processions in which believers carry an ornately decorated monstrance with a sacred Eucharist wafer through the streets. The towns of Hüfingen and Mühlenbach are renowned for their carpets made of flowers, which decorate the route of the procession and stretch to 100 metres in length. It is also common for flags to festoon the route of the procession, while processions often visit alters along the way.The political dimension According to Dom Radio, the processions have often had a subversive element. The extrovert and bombastic character was meant to show Protestants how great it is to be a Catholic. Luther, for his part, described th...
