German extremist shoots cops down

Today, 11:06

In the German state of Bavaria four police officers were injured when they wanted to take away weapons from a man. The 49-year-old resident of the town Georgensgmünd had been allowed to own such weapons, but police doubted whether that was wise. The man opened fire when police came for them.

The man considers himself a “Reichsbürger”. Reichsbürger do not recognize the current German polity because they say it was imposed by the Allies after World War II.

They say that the Allies did not have the right to abolish Adolf Hitler‘s, and his appointed successor Admiral Dönitz‘s, German empire, the ‘Third Reich’.

The movement emerged in the eighties and, according to the Interior Ministry, has a few hundred supporters. The German security service considers the Reichsbürger to be a far right-wing movement.

One of the police officers’ life is still in danger. The neo-fascist culprit Wolfgang P. was a hunter and owned thirty firearms. The Reichsbürger are anti-Semites. They have injured police officers before; see also here.

UPDATE 20 October 2016: the most critically wounded policeman has died.

At least one Reichsbürger leader, Volker S., is an ex-policeman.

5 Most Evil Nazi Human Experiments

28 June 2015

Nazi human experimentation or nazi medical experiments was a series of medical experiments 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.

During World War II, a number of German physicians conducted painful and often deadly experiments on thousands of concentration camp prisoners without their consent.

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 became known as the Doctors’ Trial, and revulsion at the abuses perpetrated led to the development of the Nuremberg Code of medical ethics.

Now, from Hitler’s Third Reich to the time after it.

Drugs tested on healthy German orphans

Today, 14:16

In German orphanages widespread drug trials were conducted on children. Research has shown that hundreds, perhaps thousands of orphans have been administered drugs while they were not sick.

The tests took place from 1950 to 1975 in orphanages in the states of Schleswig-Holstein and North Rhine-Westphalia.

So, in what was then the German Federal Republic (West Germany). Maybe in West German state Bremen as well. See also here.

It is mainly about vaccines and psychotropic drugs which at that time really only were prescribed to mentally severely ill patients. Researcher Sylvia Wagner in pharmaceutical journals of that time found evidence for at least 50 of such experiments.

Smallpox vaccine

It these journals was written openly about drugs that were given to the children. “A realization that what they did was wrong, seems not to have existed,” says Wagner.

In an orphanage in Düsseldorf for example, a smallpox vaccine was tested in 1954 on at least 50 children who were younger than 2 years. After the test, the children got painful bone marrow aspirates to see what the vaccine had done. The vaccine was found to have damaged their bone marrow severely.

There was also the Dipiperon medication in a psychiatric hospital in the form of juice for at least thirty children.

That Dipiperon was made and supplied by the Janssen corporation.

According to Wagner these surely were experiments, not treatment. “That on such a large scale children suffered from such serious illnesses that they needed these drugs is unlikely.”

How many victims there are exactly is unclear. Many of the children do not know they have been guinea pigs. The German broadcaster WDR spoke with a victim who remembers the experiments. He still suffers from them and takes antidepressants.

He had then realized that something was amiss. “The first time you swallow the pill just like that, but then, if you find that it is not good for you, you, as a child, revolt. You try to refuse, but that really was not an option.”

It turned out in Ms Wagner’s research that the doctors in these post-1950 experiments in the ‘democratic’ German Federal Republic had often been nazi party members during Hitler’s rule and had committed crimes against humanity then. According to Ms Wagner, p. 28, part of the money for the experiments came from the Fritz Thyssen Stiftung. Fritz Thyssen had been one of the first Big Businessmen to finance Hitler, already in 1923. When in 1945, Hitler’s Third Reich was almost finished, a scion of the Thyssen dynasty was hostess to an ‘entertaining’ massacre of Jews.

Sylvia Wagner writes (her summary, pp. 46-47):

Summary

In the years from 1950 to about 1975, beside the medicine study in the Neu-Düsselthal orphanage, which according to the final report of the RTH was the only known experiment so far, there were on a much larger scale experiments on German children and adolescents in homes in the Federal Republic of Germany. Eg, vaccines, psychopharmaceuticals and libido inhibiting drugs were tested.

To some extent, government agencies and institutions were at least by their knowledge of the experiments, by their consent (eg, polio vaccination in West Berlin in 1960, chlorprothixene in Neu-Düsselthal in 1966) and in one case even by commissioning by the Federal Health Authority (smallpox vaccination 1954) co-responsible for the experiments. In addition, often the responsible doctors and officials used to be high level Nazi officials. …

With the orphanage children who, as inmates of a “total institution”, had no possibility to represent themselves, or have themselves represented, to the outside world, a “vulnerable” group was added to the experiments. This chapter of the history of the orphanages is another act of violence against children living there, which has so far not received attention and opens up a new perspective on the theme.

‘German neonazis murdered nine-year-old girl’

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Neo-Nazis also possibly killed nine-year-old German girl

A German neo-Nazi trio, held responsible for at least ten racist murders, is possibly also behind the murder of a girl of 9 years of age. Remains of the child’s corpse were found this summer, and now it appears that there are DNA traces of Uwe Bönhardt on them, German media report.

Bönhardt committed suicide in 2011, together with the second member of the trio of the Nationalzozialistischer Untergrund (NSU) Uwe Mundlos. The third member Beate Zschäpe, is in jail and on trial.

The NSU is now also linked to the murder of the 9-year-old girl. She disappeared in May 2001 in the city of Lichtenberg (Bavaria). A mushroom collector found this summer remains of her body in a forest.

For the murder of the girl a man was convicted, but that verdict was overturned in 2014 because of errors in the trial.

German police also claimed for years that the NSU murders of Turkish and Greek immigrants were supposedly not by racists, but because of conflicts between Mediterranean countries’ criminal gangs.

The murders by Böhnhardt, Mundlos and Zschäpe were only a small minority of the total murders by German neonazis.

Did the NSU murder still more children? Here.

STORYLINE

Two alleged victims of a child abuse scandal connected to the Catholic church in Germany came forward on Thursday, including a former member of an all-boys choir led by the pope’s brother.

Germany’s top education representative sharply criticised the church on Thursday for failing to report cases of physical and sexual abuse in a timely fashion.

The uproar came a day before Germany’s highest bishop was to meet Pope Benedict XVI in Rome.

At least 170 former students from Catholic schools in Germany have come forward with claims of sexual abuse recently and others have spoken of physical abuse.

Wolfgang Blaschka, a 52-year-old graphic designer, said that corporal punishment was the rule, not the exception, when he was a student at the Etterzhausen school just outside Regensburg.

“One day I found myself hanging in the air by my hair – my whole bodyweight – in the claw of this Principal Meier,” he said, referring to then-director Johann Meier.

He alleged that Ratzinger had hit him too.

The scandal has clearly shaken the Vatican.

One hundred new reports of abuse in German choir

Today, 17:46

A German bishop who does research on abuse and violence at the German Catholic boys choir Regensburger Domspatzen, has now received reports from 422 people. These are over a hundred more than earlier this year, the bishop of Regensburg has said. 65 of the 422 reports concern sexual violence.

Since last year research has been done about abuses at the Bavarian choir in the period 1945 to 1992. The sexual violence ranged from fondling to rape. Boys also said they were beaten until bloody with a stick, key ring or seal ring. If a child had wet the bed, then he was banned from drinking anything.

End of next year a committee will decide on compensation. Victims can look forward to financial compensation of between 5,000 and 20,000 euros and are offered therapeutic help. There will also be an investigation into the causes of the abuse at the choir.

Benedict

The perpetrators of abuse are now deceased. Georg Ratzinger [still alive], the older brother of former Pope Benedict, was between 1964 and 1994 the leader of the choir. The lawyer of several victims thinks he knew about the abuse. Ratzinger is in denial about that.

The Regensburger Domspatzen is the choir of the cathedral of Regensburg. The choir is more than a thousand years old.

This 2015 video is a German documentary about the abuse scandal in the Regensburger Domspatzen children’s choir.

German racists bomb mosque


This video from Germany says about itself:

27 September 2016

The Fatih Camii Mosque and an international congress centre were hit in separate bomb attacks in the city of Dresden, late on Monday. No one was hurt in the explosions, which police are investigating as connected xenophobic attacks.

The first explosion targeted the mosque at just before 22.00 local time while the second, at the congress centre, occurred around 20 minutes later. The charred exteriors of both buildings were seen on Tuesday morning as police arrived to begin their investigations. Officers say the explosions were caused by homemade devices.

SOT, Bacaru Mahmut, President of Mosque committee (German): “Yesterday, at around 21:55, a young man wearing a blue jacket and a bag came here, to our mosque. And he dropped a bomb here or whatever it was. Our imam called me and then I called, very quickly, the police and firefighter department. They arrived very quickly. A firefighter team extinguished the fire.”

Bombs at mosque, congress center in Dresden, no one hurt: German police

Two improvised bombs exploded in the eastern German city of Dresden on Monday evening – one at a mosque and one at an international conference center – but no one was injured, police said on Tuesday.

“Even if we so far have no claim of responsibility, we must go on the basis that the motive was xenophobic,” Horst Kretzschmar, president of Dresden police, said in a statement.

He said police believed there was a link to celebrations planned for the coming weekend in the city to mark the anniversary of German reunification on Oct. 3, 1990.

At the time of the first explosion, the imam of the mosque was inside with his wife and sons but they were not hurt. Damage was, however, done to the building through pressure waves.

Soon after, the International Congress Centre was damaged by a home-made device and the bar of a nearby hotel was evacuated.

During the night, police officers were sent to protect other mosques in the city.

Dresden was the cradle of the anti-Islam PEGIDA … movement whose weekly rallies attracted around 20,000 supporters at the height of its popularity at the start of 2015.
