Stained glass of St Nicholas at Grade II* listed St Nicholas Plumstead - a church has stood on this site since 960. This is the oldest surviving wall and dates to the 11th century. The window was a gift from #thomasford #architecture firm to say thank you for being involved in the refurbishing of the church after the #secondworldwar

"Neste libelo contra o Holocausto, o autor italiano mundialmente famoso procura responder àquelas perguntas que tanto cobraram as posições e a consciência dos sobreviventes das câmaras de gás: por que vocês não fugiram? Por que não se rebelaram?"

I always like seeing photos of German soldiers using captured weapons especially a PPSH41.

The Jagdpanzer IV, Sd.Kfz. 162, was a German tank destroyer based on the Panzer IV chassis and built in three main variants. As one of the casemate-style turretless Jagdpanzer (tank destroyer, literally "hunting tank") designs, it was developed against the wishes of Heinz Guderian, the inspector general of the Panzertruppen, as a replacement for the Sturmgeschütz III (StuG III). Guderian objected against the needless, in his eyes, diversion of resources from Panzer IV tank production, as the Sturmgeschütz III was still more than adequate for its role. There were about 2000 built. This tank fought in Normandy, The battle of the buldge and On the Eastern front. #ww2 #germany #history #wwhistory #germany🇩🇪 #secondworldwar #ww #jagdpanzeriv 🇩🇪

O MARINE MAIS CONDECORADO DA HISTÓRIA
Tenente-general Lewis Burwell Puller (1898 - 1971) foi um oficial do Corpo de Fuzileiros Navais dos Estados Unidos, o marine mais condecorado na história dos fuzileiros navais norte-americanos e o único a ser condecorado cinco vezes com a Cruz da Marinha, a mais alta condecoração dada pelo Departamento da Marinha dos Estados Unidos. Concedida por extrema bravura e risco de morte em combate com uma força inimiga armada, servindo além do dever.
Durante sua carreira, ele lutou contra guerrilheiros no Haiti e na Nicarágua, e participou de algumas das batalhas mais sangrentas da Segunda Guerra Mundial e da Guerra da Coréia. Puller se aposentou dos fuzileiros em 1955, vivendo o resto de sua vida na Virgínia, estado em que nasceu.

Gé Bijlsma & Reem Al Khaled

Evacue Battle of Arnhem
As a little boy of 5 years, Gé (79 years) was traumatized by the horrors of the Second World War at the Battle of Arnhem. He has seen, heard and felt too much. For nine days they had to hide in the basement. Sitting still and waiting was the only thing they could do. The ground quivered from the bombs that struck. One day he managed to escape and crawled up into a cupboard. There he was overwhelmed by loneliness, fear and sadness.

Reem Al Khaled, Refugee Iraq
Reem fled from Syria to the Netherlands three years ago. A journey of 10 days full of setbacks. Twice she tried to make the crossing from Turkey to Greece. The second time it worked. Between Serbia and Hungary they were with a group of 60 refugees. Smugglers would take them to Budapest by taxi. They had lied to them. Nobody knew how far the next village was. They ran out of water and food and it was cold and dark. They were alone. All alone.

The outfit
The outfit is inspired by the meeting between Gé and Reem. They shared their experiences and recognized themselves in each other. •
Violin
Reem used to play a lot of violin. This was her passion. Since she arrived in the Netherlands she can’t play this instrument. It reminds her of the past.
Gé said: "There comes a time when you want to play again, and then you will enjoy it."

Sheep
Gé carries a little sheep with him in a box. Everyday he carries it around. He gets quiet and cuddles the creature regularly. It is his guardian angel.

.
The Battle of the Somme is one of the most infamous battles of the First World War.
.
The battle served to relieve pressure off the French, who were near defeat at Verdun from the German offensive. It was hoped a breakthrough on the Somme would not only divert German forces from Verdun, but also lead to an advance to win the war.
.
On July 1, 1916 250,000 British troops supported by the French went over-the-top on the river Somme in France. The French saw success at the southern part of the front, and the British next to them too. Though the British assault further north did not succeed at all.
.
By the end of the day the British had suffered 57,472 casualties of whom 19,240 were killed. These losses were due to ineffective artillery, communication failures, safe German dug-outs and inexperienced troops. July 1, 1916 is the single most bloody day in British military history.
.
The battle had to go on, as the French were still suffering at Verdun.
.
The battle turned into a battle of attrition, where success is not measured in territory gained, but losses inflicted on the opponent. All sides suffered incredible casualties. Nevertheless the Allies did slowly advance.
.
By November 18, winter was approaching and the Allies temporarily called off the offensive.
.
During January and February 1917 local assults on the Somme took place, before the Germans withdrew to their defensive Hindenburg Line, a line they had been constructing since September 1916.
.
By March 20, 1917 the Germans had completely withdrawn from the Somme.
.
The Battle had inflicted 420,000 casualties on the British with 95,000 killed and 200,000 on the French with 50,000 killed. The Germans had suffered 500,000 - 600,000 casualties, though some estimate up to 729,000, with 164,000 killed. It was a loss the Germans would never recover from.
.
This brings a total of 1.2 - 1.3 million casualties, the single most bloody battle on the Western Front. The Allies had advanced 6 miles; that's 103,000 Allied casualties for each mile gained.

STAATSOPER BERLIN • XI .
Year zero` for the Staatsoper: view from the fence of the Humboldt Universität of the heavily destroyed Opera at Unter den Linden where two cows graze in the grass.
Notice at left the ancient statue of Wilhelm von Humboldt made in 1883 by sculptor Reinhold Begas.
It seems that the main entrance portico of the Neoclassical theater survived barely intact to the Allied bombs.
It was one of the first historical buildings at Unter den Linden secured against further decay and plunder.
