The Man Who Volunteered for Auschwitz – David de Sola – The Atlantic.

It is into this environment that Witold Pilecki, a 39-year old veteran of the Polish-Soviet War of 1919-1921 who fought against the initial Nazi invasion and a member of the Polish resistance, volunteered himself in 1940. Pilecki’s mission was to allow himself to be arrested and, once inside Auschwitz, to collect intelligence for the Polish resistance in the country and the government-in-exile in London, and to organize a resistance from inside the camp.

History of Medicine: The former Chairman of Bayer, maker of childrens aspirin, was found guilty of Nazi war crimes and sentenced to prison.

I.G. Farben was a powerful cartel comprised of Bayer, BASF, Hoechst, and other German chemical companies which experimented mercilessly on Jewish prisoners as Hitler commanded, inside the World War II Auschwitz Concentration Camp, testing dangerous drugs and vaccines and killing thousands. In fact, Auschwitz was the largest mass extermination factory in human history (http://www.nizkor.org/faqs/auschwitz/auschwitz-faq-06.html).

Ironically, just two weeks after Germany’s unconditional surrender, the designer of the Nazi guided missile, Herbert Wagner, arrived in Washington D.C. This was the beginning of the mass influx of “mad scientists” who would go to work in the United States for a mission called “Project Paperclip,” headed up by President Roosevelt to supposedly “exploit the knowledge of Nazi scientists.”

A few years later, the Nuremberg War Criminal Tribunal convicted 24 of the I.G. Farben executives for mass murder, slavery and other crimes against humanity; however, in less than 7 years, every single murderer was released, and began consulting American corporations. From 1950 to 1980, Bayer, BASF, and Hoechst filled their highest position, Chairman of the Board, with convicted mass murderers.

A German mountain haunted by Hitlers ghost < German news | Expatica Germany.

On a mountain-bike, the cyclist comes barreling through the Bavarian pine forest, racing along a rough alpine track straight through what would have been Adolf Hitler’s living room.

The women’s suffrage movement in Switzerland < Expat groups and clubs in Switzerland | Expatica Switzerland

New Zealand and Switzerland are similar in many aspects – both countries are considered reasonably well-developed and advanced in most social, economic and political spheres; both are comparatively neutral in world affairs; and are definitively (sometimes defiantly) independent, which may be seen as somewhat remarkable for the small size and population of both nations.
