Hitler’s birthplace shows that confronting dark past can take decades

first_imgAs anti-racism protesters topple statues of slave traders and colonizers worldwide, some nations are pondering how to mark their dark past. In Austria, debate over confronting one link to Adolf Hitler has taken decades, and it’s not over yet.Austria recently unveiled plans to convert the house where the Nazi leader was born, in the town of Braunau am Inn on the German border, into a police station.It also suggested moving a rock that stands on the sidewalk outside, which is inscribed with an anti-fascist message, to a Vienna museum. ‘Never again’The rock, which carries the inscriptions “fascism never again” and “millions of dead” but does not mention Hitler, was installed by the town in 1989.At that point, Austria was moving away from its position of denying responsibility for the Holocaust, a post-war stance during which it described itself as the first victim of the Nazis.Partly because of that, some say that Austria has done less to confront its Nazi past than neighboring Germany.”Sometimes it feels like something that is done as a chore rather than a commitment made out of deep conviction,” said Gerhard Baumgartner, a historian and scientific director at the Documentation Centre of Austrian Resistance.While progress has been made in terms of education on the Holocaust and erecting memorials since the 1980s, Jewish and survivors’ groups say more remains to be done, especially in explaining how widespread and systemic the Nazis’ crimes were.”That is very important – that people really know there was something everywhere,” said Charlotte Herman, head of the group officially representing the Jewish community in the province of Upper Austria, which includes Braunau.She and Mernyi mentioned the “Stolpersteine”, or “stumbling blocks”, project as one way to raise awareness.Originally a German initiative, it involves laying small brass plaques to Holocaust victims in the pavement at relevant places, like where they lived.Those plaques cover a fraction of Holocaust victims, but are a relatively common sight in Vienna, where a notoriously repressive and anti-Semitic system was put in place with local support after Hitler’s Germany annexed Austria in 1938.”In all of Austria, in every corner, in front of almost everyone’s door, something happened, whether it’s death marches, people walking past and dying in the street,” said Herman.Hitler’s role in history is well known, so there is no need to spell it out in great detail at the house, she added. But attention should be called to the building.”Because this is where evil was in fact born.”  While many agree that the house should not be allowed to become a pilgrimage site for neo-Nazis, the idea of removing the rock has upset some Jewish and survivors’ groups who have said that Austria must confront its role in the Holocaust.More consultations on the rock will now be held.”Clearly [the government] wants to let the world forget that the worst mass murderer in history was born in Braunau,” said Willi Mernyi, head of the Mauthausen Committee, Austria’s main Holocaust survivors’ group.”This approach is wrong … One must recognize what happened.”center_img Topics :last_img read more

IOC approves $800m to address COVID-19 crisis

first_imgInternational Olympic Committee (IOC) anticipates that it will have to bear costs of up to USD 800 million for its part of the responsibilities for the organisation of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, its own extended operations and the support for the wider Olympic Movement. Loading… Additionally, the Swiss Federal Council agreed yesterday to offer support to the Switzerland-based IFs in a joint programme with the IOC. ‘The IOC thanks the Swiss Federal Council for the offer to support the International Federations jointly with the IOC. We are fully committed to successfully delivering this International Sports Federation support programme in cooperation with the Swiss authorities. This initiative is a great acknowledgement of the importance of the International Sports Federations and sport,’ IOC President Thomas Bach commented. It was previously announced that Olympic Solidarity has increased the budget for its athlete programmes by USD 15 million, which covers scholarships for over 1,600 athletes from 185 NOCs and the IOC Refugee Olympic Team. Olympic Solidarity had also increased the budget for IOC subsidies for the participation of NOCs in the Olympic Games by USD 10.3 million. This additional budget will allow Olympic Solidarity to make available additional funds relating to exceptional Games-related costs incurred by NOCs due to the postponement of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. President Bach said: ‘The Olympic Movement is facing an unprecedented challenge. The IOC has to organise postponed Olympic Games for the first time ever, and has to help its stakeholders come through this global crisis. read also:IOC to discuss providing financial support to international federations This new situation will need all our solidarity, creativity, determination and flexibility. We shall all need to make sacrifices and compromises. Extraordinary circumstances call for extraordinary measures. This situation requires every one of us to do our part, and this applies to all of us, including the IOC. With today’s financial plans, we are addressing these needs.’ FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 This amount will be covered by the IOC itself, including any funding from the Olympic Foundation. This number includes the cost for the organisation of the postponed Games of up to USD 650 million for the IOC, and an aid package of up to USD 150 million for the Olympic Movement, including the International Federations (IFs), the National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and the IOC-Recognised Organisations, to enable them to continue their sports, their activities and their support to their athletes. Today, the IOC Executive Board (EB) approved this financial plan. At the moment, the IOC is undergoing a deep analysis process to evaluate and assess the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on all of its operations. This is a complex exercise because of the constantly changing factors which have to be considered in the current environment. The IOC, as the leader of the Olympic Movement, is playing a critical role in supporting its stakeholders during the COVID-19 outbreak. To stand in solidarity with the Olympic Movement, it has also put together an aid package of up to USD 150 million, from which the IFs, NOCs and IOC-Recognised Organisations can benefit. This funding is meant to help them continue their mission to develop their sports, prepare for the Olympic Games and support their athletes. The IOC and its stakeholders are still going through the analysis process to assess the needs on a case-by-case basis.

first_imgWashington D.C. — AdvancePierre Foods, Inc., an Enid, Okla. establishment, is recalling approximately 20,373 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) beef patties that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically soft purple plastic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.The frozen RTE flame-broiled beef patties were produced on Nov. 30, 2018. The following products are subject to recall: [View labels (PDF only)}14.06-lb. cases containing three bags with 30 pieces for a total of 90 portions of “CN FULLY COOKED FLAME-BROILED BEEF PATTIES CARAMEL COLOR ADDED” with case code 155-525-0 and package code 8334.The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 2260E” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to food service locations nationwide. While the product was distributed to schools, it resulted from a commercial sale and was not part of food provided by the USDA for the National School Lunch Program.The problem was discovered on April 1, 2019 after the firm received two consumer complaints regarding soft purple plastic found in the product.There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in food service freezers. Food service locations who have purchased these products are urged not to serve or consume them.

O’Rourke misses out

first_img Press Association Ireland’s Derval O’Rourke missed out on a 60 metres hurdles medal by just 0.01 seconds at the European Indoor Championships in Gothenburg. She continued: “It’s the best indoor run I’ve had since 2006 and possibly the most disrupted preparation I have had. “I had an injection in my Achilles in November and then got a sinus infection in December and lost 4kg. “I believed I had a chance to win and that’s why I came. I got a fantastic start, there was not a whole heap wrong with the race. It’s hard to criticise 7.95 but right now I am gutted.” center_img O’Rourke, a former world indoor champion, finished fourth in a season’s best 7.95secs to fall agonisingly short of a place on the podium. Indeed, her time was only 0.06secs off gold medal winner Nevin Yanit. O’Rourke said: “I ran it to win it, not finish second or third, but I would love to have a medal. I thought I had silver because I was right next to Yanit. And I wish they would change the photo-finish.” last_img read more

Louisiana judge: Roger Goodell must give deposition in Saints-Rams no-call suit

first_imgThe controversial no-call stems from the play in which officials missed Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman interfering with Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis in the final minutes of the meeting. Because of the blown call, the game went into overtime, where the Rams kicked a field goal to win, 26-23, and punch their ticket to Atlanta for Super Bowl 53. Related News Bengals’ receiving corps takes another hit with John Ross hamstring injury It’s been six months since the infamous no-call in the NFC championship game, but the Saints still aren’t over it.NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and three officials from January’s matchup have been called for questioning under oath by a Louisiana judge after attorney Antonio LeMon filed a lawsuit over the game, The Associated Press reported Monday. Le’Veon Bell tweets ‘overdue’ apology to fantasy football owners Jerry Jones says Cowboys could win Super Bowl without rushing champion Ezekiel Elliott However, other suits over the botched call haven’t exactly been successful and a petition started by fans demanding the NFC championship game be replayed was laughable, so it’s unlikely this will go over any different.Expect the league to file appeals that could delay or cancel the questioning altogether to avoid admitting once again what has already been stated: that a human error was made. The report noted the two sides will convene in September and “pick a mutually agreeable date for depositions in New Orleans.” The suit is seeking $75,000 in damages, which will be donated to charity.last_img read more
