Germany's churches warn against upsurge in racism

Thursday, September 13, 2018

Bavaria and Hesse. The head of Germans lay people Catholics did not hesitate to draw a parallel with the Nazi Party, which came to power by the ballot in the last phase of the Weimar Republic. While denouncing the demonization of immigration, Thomas Sternberg also recognized the need to set economic, social and societal limits for immigration. Exploring these limits, particularly to be able to ensure the necessary protection for those who need it, is an enormous challenge for our society, Sternberg said, wondering at the reasons why some Germans felt abandoned. However, he added: I think a democratic state can overcome all that. Dignity at the heart of social consensus In late August, at the heart of the Chemnitz riots, the president of the Council of the Protestant Church in Germany, Bishop Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, also warned German voters against the AfD. Those who vote for the AfD need to know that they are giving legitimacy to forces that go all the way to the extreme right and which use Nazi slogans, he said. Repositioning human dignity at the heart of the social consensus, the head of Germanys Protestants urged those who see themselves as Christians to seize the opportunity of the upcoming elections to send a clear signal against such slogans. https://international.la-croix.com/news/germanys-churches-warn-against-upsurge-in-racism/8381

Thursday, May 4, 2017

Survivors and mourners gathered near the city of Weimar in eastern Germany on Sunday to mark the liberation of the Buchenwald concentration camp 72 year ago. Around 500 people, including 25 survivors, attended the event, placing wreaths and flowers in honor of the dead and listening to talks from eyewitnesses.Those witnesses included survivors from Hungary, Italy, Israel and Germany, according to German news agency DPA. Eva Puzstai, Gilberto Salmoni, Naftali Fürst and Günter Pappenheim, who are also members of the International Committee of Buchenwald-Dora, used the opportunity to symbolically pass on responsibility for taking care of the site and protecting the memory of the dead to the younger generation of the organization's members.Established in July 1937 at Ettersberg in Thuringia, Buchenwald was one of the first and became one of the largest concentration camps on German soil. It held mostly Jews, as well as many other groups who became targets of the Nazi regime, including ethnic Poles and Slavs, Roma and Sinti, as well as Fr...http://www.dw.com/en/survivors-mourners-mark-liberation-of-buchenwald-concentration-camp/a-38360095

How the Alternative for Germany Has Transformed the Country

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Left Party. The unrest in Chemnitz in August marked a turning point for the AfD. There, the party joined a phalanx of agitators and neo-Nazis, with the AfD's Thuringia state chapter leader Björn Höcke marching side-by-side with an activist from Pegida -- the anti-Islam and anti-immigrant group -- who has multiple criminal convictions on his record. For years, politics in Germany had been shaped by the old polarity between left and right. But those days are over. The question of identity now seems to be more important, which seemingly scrambles the party system. Sahra Wagenknecht of the Left Party is creating a new movement called "Aufstehen," German for "Stand Up," that she hopes will be a magnet for voters who would like to see a bigger welfare state and fewer immigrants. The move places additional pressure on the center-left Social Democratic Party (SPD), which has fluctuated between a culture of welcoming refugees and warnings of a loss of control since the refugee crisis. The business-friendly Free Democratic Party (FDP), meanwhile, has morphed into a law and order party. And the only thing still holding the CDU and Christian Social Union (CSU), the CDU's Bavarian sister party, together is the fear of losing power. The only parties that seem to be profiting from the new political complexities are the Greens and the AfD. So, how to deal with a party that fulminates against the mainstream with such abandon while at the spreading its own tentacles further into the center of society, into gov...http://www.spiegel.de/international/germany/how-the-alternative-for-germany-has-transformed-the-country-a-1227360.html

Neo-Nazi gang member jailed for life in Germany after troubling trial

Thursday, August 2, 2018

An only child, Zschäpe grew up with her alcoholic single mother in a high rise development outside the university town of Jena in the eastern state of Thuringia. As a teenager she found an ersatz family in a local neo-Nazi gang, headed by her future skinhead boyfriend, Mundlos. She left school early and moved in with him and Böhnhardt and by 1995 they were key members of a a hardcore neo-Nazi gang specialising in petty crime and provocation. They defiled concentration camps, dangled dummies marked Jew from Autobahn bridges and sent mock-up bombs to police. After police raided an NSU depot containing weapons and explosives in December 1998, the trio went off the grid. Their first murder came two years later, on September 9th, 2000: the shooting of Nuremberg flower shop owner Enver Simsek. The two men took pictures of the dying man, lying in a pool of his own blood, and – alongside pictures of their other victims – created a ghoulish DVD slideshow that Zschäpe posted to media organisations. Apart from two killings – of a Greek man and a German police woman – all victims were migrants of Turkish origin. ‘Skilful liar In written testimony, Zschäpe told the court she flipped out when she heard of the first murder and urged the two to hand themselves in. Her defence – she had five lawyers in five years – portrayed her as a fearful victim of emotional blackmail. In a statement to court last week, she asked judges not to sentence her for crimes she neither wanted nor did. In sentencing her to life imprisonment, with no chance of early release, the court followed the prosecution and its portrayal of Zschäpe, who lived under eleven different aliases, as a skilful liar. Her refusal to testify means families of the victims still dont know why their loved ones were selected to be killed. The legacy of the NSU trial, they say, is a pattern of institutional racism among police who classified the murders as clan crime. Abdulkerim Simsek says his flower-shop owner father, the NSUs first murder victim, was portrayed by police as a criminal, and his family as co-conspirators or even perpetrators. They searched our entire apartment, the newspapers said my father was a drug dealer because he went to Holland every week to buy flowers, he said. Their lawyers believe investigators have worked to conceal the scale of the NSU supporter and sympathiser network in a bid to keep under wraps the extent of contact between the neo-Nazis and police informers. One special security agent conceded he was in an internet cafe in April 2006 when the 21-year-old owner was shot dead by the NSU. Chatting online with his mistress in the cafés back room, he claimed neither to have heard the shots nor seen the dead body.

Antique watering can made in Aesthetic style in 19th century

Thursday, August 2, 2018

Prov. Saxe, which was used by the Erdmann Schlegelmilch Porcelain Factory. The factory was founded by Leonard Schlegelmilch (1823-1898) and named for his father, Erdmann. It was in business in Suhl, Thuringia, Germany, from 1861 to 1937. The company made decorated and undecorated porcelain. The Prov. Saxe mark was used beginning in 1902, and was one of several marks used by the company. The country of origin was required on items imported into the United States beginning in 1891. Since the mark on your plates doesnt include the word Germany, they may have been made for local use. Some small plates with floral decoration have sold online for less than $10. Q: We inherited an inventory of handwritten and typed jokes and scripts from Lucille Klinker, wife of Zeno Klinker, the head writer for Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy. We would like to donate this material to someone interested in the collection or to a museum. Please let me know any information you can provide. A: Zeno Klinker (1900-1985) wrote jokes for two of Edgar Bergens movies in the 1940s and for his radio program in the 1950s. He also wrote jokes for other radio shows. He and his sister designed a series of humorous greeting cards in the 1930s. He wrote the text and his sister did the illustrations. Charlie McCarthy, Edgar Bergens dummy, is in the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. (americanhistory.si.edu). The American Radio Archives at the Thousand Oaks Library Foundation in Thousand Oaks, California (thousandoakslibraryfoundation.org), has a collection of radio scripts, sound recordings and other materials. Contact these museums to see if either is interested in your collection. Q: I bought a bag of uniform buttons several years ago that have a crown in the middle and Kent Constabulary written around the edge. Some are shiny silver-tone metal and some are dark and hard. I cant tell what the dark material is; its possible that its leather. The dark buttons are marked on the back J.A. Grove & Sons, Halesowen. The buttons are about ⅞ of an inch in diameter and have a shank on the back. A: The dark-colored buttons you have are horn buttons made by James Grove & Sons, a company started in Halesowen, England, in 1857, which became the largest button manufacturer in the United Kingdom. The company specialized in uniform buttons for police, military, post office and railroad workers, and was one of the worlds largest manufacturers of horn buttons. It made buttons for both the Union and Confederate armies during the American Civil War. James Grove & Sons went out of business in 2012. Some of the dies and pattern books were sold online and a new company, Grove Pattern Buttons, began making buttons in 2013. The business was closed by 2016. The Kent Constabulary is a police force established in Kent County, England, in 1857. It became the Kent Police in 2002.

Penny Launches Transitional Organic Fruit And Veg Range - ESM - The European Supermarket Magazine

Friday, April 13, 2018

Junior Helden apples was the first product launched today for the price of €2.99 per kilo in Penny stores across federal states, excluding Thuringia, Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt.The initiative is targeted at producers who are transitioning their farming practices to organic standards, according to Penny.Organic TransitionIn Germany, farmers have to adapt organic practices for a period of a few years before they are allowed to use the official organic label on their products.The Junior-Helden products will come at a slightly higher price than regular fresh produce, but cheaper than organic, in order to help farmers offset the financial burden of this transition phase.“Simply put, the effort to adapt organic farming practices gets larger, while the product becomes smaller,” said Patricia Brunn, Penney head of fresh fruit, vegetables, flowers and plants. “We frequently hear from farmers that they would like to transition from conventional to organic farming but that the financial risk is too high.”Financial Incentive“With the Naturgut Junior-Helden we’ve created a concrete financial incentive by paying farmers more for their produce during the transition period,” Brunn continues. “For apples, the price is 26% higher. However, only a small part of this premium will be felt by the consumer, so that won't stop Naturgut Junior-Helden from becoming a popular alternative...
