Nazi Youth Camp

A youth camp run by a neo-Nazi organization is broken up by police near Rostock in northern Germany. Authorities said the children were being instilled with Nazi propaganda under the guise of a sleep-away camp. Police have returned 39 teenagers and children who were attending a camp run by a neo-Nazi youth organization to their homes. The group that ran the camp, the Heimattreuer Deutsche Jugend (HDJ) had described it as a youth adventure holiday.

The police raid uncovered racist propaganda and Nazi material, including tea towels with swastikas on them and maps showing Europe and Germany with pre-1918 borders. The camp was in an isolated spot in the German state of Mecklenburg-Western Pommerania, down a concrete road, surrounded by forest. From the outside it looked just like any other summer camp. Authorities there were tipped off to the camps true intentions by some locals, said Volker Werner, spokesman for the Rostock police, who took charge of the investigation.
After receiving a search warrant, police and youth authorities entered the camp. In addition to the 39 campers, there were also a dozen adults. The camp's alleged leader was a 24-year-old from the town of Rottenberg in the southern state of Baden-Wuerttemberg. The organization Network Against Nazis believes that camp was designed to bring whole families over to the right wing movement. The children, who came from all over Germany, said they had permission from their parents to take part in the camp. 

Is the nightmare waking up or the miserable results of a consuming society with rising unemployment?


Socialist Palace is … in Dubai

Tearing down the socialist Palace of the Republic - once dubbed the "Palazzo Prozzo" by the East Berliners, is bringing handsome profits for scrap firm operators involved in its demolishment.
Vast-sized steel girders from the socialist era building some of them 90 meters long and weighing more than 100 tons, have been removed from the premises recently, amidst a blaze of sparks and noise.
Hardly a happy ending for the former seat of the East German parliament which apart from its political role was once a popular dance and leisure facility for East Berliners in the 1980s. Not that many people shed tears about the demise of the former 180-metre-wide building, considered a prize piece of socialist architecture when it opened in 1976.
Heavily involved at the Schlossplatz Palace site is Schrott-Wetzel, a Rosslau-based scrap company in Saxony-Anhalt, some 120 kilometers (75 miles) south-west of Berlin. In recent weeks, 30 of its workers have been using powerful steel-cutting gear to get at the building's maze of steel girders.

The communism realism and art moving to ... south Arabia!!! That’s definitely a contemporary phenomenon!


A bullet-proof bra

It is being dubbed the new "bullet-proof bra", a new kind of Wonderbra which could help protect thousands of women police officers here in Germany. This is a serious matter - the policewoman who came up with the idea said normal bras can be dangerous when worn in combination with a bullet-proof vest. "The impact of a bullet can push the metal and plastic bits of the bra into an officer's body, causing serious injury," said Carmen Kibat, an adviser on equal opportunities for the Hamburg-based Bundespolizei - Germany's federal police force.

"I always thought normal bras posed a safety risk and I wanted to change that," she said. "These new bras are very important and they will help all our women officers." Dozens of German policewomen have already tested the new bras and, after a two-month long trial, the underwear is being issued to officers as part of their uniform.
