The sources for the following outline of National Socialism in Lithuania can be found in the included links, well documented without a doubt. Many scientists worldwide have carefully revised this dark chapter in human history - whether for Germany, France, Lithuania, etc. Based on these facts, the number of those who embrace the repulsive ideas of the National Socialists of the 20th century should be reduced, even in the current information age.

Due to the narrowness between the Japanese islands of Shikoku and Awaji, the tidal range pushes the water at up to 20 km/h - the third fastest tidal current in the world. This is how the huge Naruto whirlpools with diameters of up to 20 meters are created under the 1.6 km long Naruto Bridge that connects the islands.

To get to the best location for the view of the impressive "Dolsandaegyo Bridge", you either go up by elevator or by cable car from the other side to the park, which was created on a summit. As soon as you arrive, the friendly Koreans will "sort you" with the camera and there will be a lively exchange about all kinds of technical and cultural details.

Blue hour over the cathedral island on the Oder in Wroclaw - On the right you can see the two towers of the cathedral and in front of it the bishop's seat on the cathedral island in Wroclaw. The term island no longer applies, however, since Breslauer filled up the northern arm of the Oder. In good weather conditions you can take excellent pictures of these buildings with their reflections in the Oder. This photo succeeded in the end of the blue hour.

The village named St Lucia by stranded Portuguese in 1554 is located in the uMkhanyakude district of the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa. This location is a popular starting point for excursions to the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, where many different animals can be observed and photographed. Apart from the impressive "hippos", the hippos that occasionally roam the town at night, we were also able to observe and photograph the majestic fish eagles on a tour through the wetlands.



Bruges by night

Submitted by Jürgen Tenckhoff on Fri, 01/22/2021 - 15:41

Venice of the North is called Bruges in Belgium in the Merian. And if you think of the well-known novel by Thomas Mann, Death in Venice, you also understand the title of the film "Seeing Bruges ... and Dying?" From 2008 by Martin McDonagh (screenplay and direction). But that ends the initial similarity between film and novella - while Thomas Mann draws the famous writer Gustav von Aschenbach to Venice, in Martin McDonagh's tragic comedy the two hit men Ray and Ken, masterfully played by the well-known actors Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, travel to Bruges.

After the siege of the German leased area and trading base Qingdao by the Japanese army, the German troops in China surrendered on November 7, 1914 during World War II. Around 4,700 Germans were then interned in 12 camps in Japan. The Bando camp occupies a special position here, because while torture was reported from other Japanese camps, thanks to the liberal attitude of the camp commandant Matsue Toyohisa, a good cooperation between the local population and the prisoners developed here.
