Germany must remember..

2017-07-17

The attached article by Timothy Snyder is taken from an address he gave to the German Bundestag earlier this month. It is published by Euromaidan and reprinted in Eurozine. It is worth reading. Most of us in this part of Europe ignore what happenen during and after the second world war in Europe between Russia and Germany. The attached article explains how  Hitler's policy of colonising Ukraine was primarily responsible for the extermination war of the Jewish people that began with Babi Yar in Kiev. In addition to the 6 million Jewish victims, the same number of Polish victims (3 million of them Jewish Poles), his war made 6.5million Ukrainian victims. Germans must remember the truth about the Ukraine for their own sake, writes Timothy Snyder.

European Unification into the Twenty First Century

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

The story of European Unification is fascinating. In 1950, two sworn enemies – France and Germany – decide to seek reconciliation and European federal unity. As a first step, they created the European Coal and Steel Community together with Italy and the Benelux countries. The fathers of this new Europe were visionary persons. Does today`s student or scholar still know who Robert Schuman, Konrad Adenauer, Alcide de Gasperi or Willem Beyen were and what they stood for?

Description

The peaceful collapse of the Soviet totalitarian, communist system has been a watershed of historic proportions in Europe and the world. In 1989, unexpectedly, Communism and the Cold War were behind us, they were bad and should be forgotten. The immediate post-1989 world presented itself as a new era of organised forgetting, as neither East nor West were interested in examining the prolonged period of acquiescence in absurdities.
