Nancy Wake photographed in 1945

Nancy Wake, a spy the German Gestapo nicknamed “The White Mouse” during WWII because of her evasion of them and who once topped their most-wanted list, has died. She passed away Sunday while hospitalised in London within days of turning 99.

Born in New Zealand, she was raised in Australia but ran away when she was sixteen. By the 1930s she was a journalist in Paris when, in 1933, she took a trip to Austria to witness Nazi crimes against Jews. After interviewing Adolf Hitler, she chose to dedicate herself to being a thorn in his side. “In Vienna they had a big wheel and they had the Jews tied to it, and the stormtroopers were there, whipping them. When we were going out of Vienna they took our photos. That was my experience of Hitler,” she later said.

—Nancy Wake

France surrendered to the Nazis in 1940, with Wake and her rich husband, businessman Henri Fiocca, joining the Resistance of the German occupiers. The duo helped fleeing soldiers and Jews in their journeys to Spain, with Wake’s roles including spy, courier, and saboteur.

Her husband convinced her to flee to the UK in 1943; upon arrival in England she joined British Special Operations. Wake and Fiocca never met again. The following year she parachuted back into France to give Resistance fighters a weapons delivery, but only found out after the nation’s subsequent liberation that Fiocca had been captured by the Gestapo. They tortured and killed him through his defiance: he refused to give up his wife.

The most decorated Australian servicewoman – and one of the most decorated among the Allies – Wake’s honours included the Legion D’Honneur (France’s highest award), the UK’s George Medal, the US Medal of Freedom, and being made a Companion of the Order of Australia.

Wake made her way back to Australia in 1949 and failed in repeated attempts to be elected to parliament. Since 1957 she has lived in England, married to ex-UK Royal Air Force pilot John Forward. She has been in a veterans’ retirement home since 2003.

“Nancy Wake was a woman of exceptional courage and resourcefulness whose daring exploits saved the lives of hundreds of Allied personnel and helped bring the Nazi occupation of France to an end,” Australian PM Julia Gillard said in tribute, calling her “a devastatingly effective saboteur and spy”. Warren Truss, leader of the Australian National Party, called her exploits “the stuff of legend.” “[A]ll Australians feel very proud of this wonderful woman,” he said.

New Zealand’s Veterans’ Affairs Minister Judith Collins shared the sentiment, calling Wake “a woman of exceptional courage and tenacity, who cast aside all regard for her own safety and put the cause of freedom first”. Wake’s stance on freedom was clear: “Freedom is the only thing worth living for,” she said after the war. “While I was doing that work, I used to think it didn’t matter if I died, because without freedom there was no point in living.”

Her story inspired Charlotte Gray by author Sebastian Faulks, later made into the movie of the same name. Wake retained pride in her work; “I have only one thing to say: I killed a lot of Germans, and I am only sorry I didn’t kill more,” she would later say of her fighting.

Hitler’s wax model is to return to the Madame Tussauds museum in Berlin, Germany after getting its head ripped off by a 41-year old man who was arrested but subsequently released.

At the grand opening of the museum, the man, currently only known as Frank L., pushed aside two officers who were protecting the exhibit. Yelling “No more war!”, he proceeded to rip off the wax sculpture’s head.

The man was arrested but later released pending investigation. He told the German newspaper Bild am Sonntag he was angry about the exhibit. It has been reported that he had committed the act to win a bet started by his friends at a bar.

The waxwork was criticized around Germany where, generally, Nazi memorabilia or symbols are banned. Critics have argued that it is inappropriate to display a person who started a world war, but the museum has noted that Hitler was an important figure in German history.

The museum has announced its intentions to reinstate the €200,000 (£160,000) model after repairs, which could take weeks.

A man ripped off the head of a wax model of Adolf Hitler during the opening ceremony of a museum in Berlin, Germany.

An unknown 41-year old German, reported to be the second one in line at the opening of the Madame Tussauds museum in Berlin, pushed aside 2 officers then went to the exhibit depicting Hitler. He then yelled “No more war!” and ripped the wax head off only a few minutes after the museum opened.

Police arrested the man, charging him for assault and damaging property, said spokesman Uwe Kozelnik. The accused is currently in custody.

In the weeks preceding the opening, critics argued that it was inappropriate to show Hitler with other famous figures, while others say that Hitler’s role in German history justifies his placement within the exhibition.

Narayanhiti Royal Palace has been converted into a museum, signifying the end of Nepal’s 239-year-old monarchy.

Sunday, June 15, 2008

Narayanhity Royal Palace, home to Nepal’s kings for over a century, was today converted into a public museum, further signifying the country’s recent transition from a monarchy to a republic.

At a brief ceremony, Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala hoisted the national flag where previously only the royal flag had flown, and unveiled a plaque reading “Narayanhity National Museum”. Proclaiming the museum as belonging to the people, Koirala said, “Today the son of a common people has hoisted the country’s flag in this palace. Now Nepal has entered a new era.”

Nepal’s deposed king Gyanendra vacated the palace on Wednesday, after the newly elected Constituent Assembly voted to abolish the 239-year-old monarchy on May 28. He then moved to Nagarjuna Palace, a summer home on the outskirts of the capital Kathmandu, where he is now living as a civilian. However, this home is only a temporary one, and he will soon be asked by the government to leave it as well.

—Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala

Prime Minister Koirala said he was glad the transition occurred peacefully. “The world’s eyes are on Nepal for the unique example it created of proclaiming a republic without any bloodshed,” he said. He also thanked the former king for “understanding the desire and expectation of the people by voluntarily moving out to live an exile-like life.” Koirala also addressed the need to focus on more pressing issues, such as drafting a new constitution and choosing a new federal structure.

The process began around two years ago, when a national uprising forced the king to relinquish the absolute power he had installed and to reinstate the parliament. In late 2007, the parliament agreed to declare Nepal a republic, which was to be implemented after the April 2008 elections. The Maoists, who had been fighting against the monarchy for over 10 years, won the majority of seats, and the monarchy was officially ended in an overwhelming vote.

Despite the ceremony, Narayanhity National Museum is not yet open to the public. Nepali home minister Krishna Prasad Sitaula said, “After proper preparation, the palace will be opened to the public in two to three months.” There are some differing opinions of what to do with the museum; Nepal’s national library wants the museum to include a national archives of important documents, while others want to develop the museum into a major tourist attraction.

Officials say the museum will likely include the king’s crown, sceptre, and royal throne, as well as a 1939 Mercedes-Benz given to Gyanendra’s grandfather by Adolf Hitler. “The car will be a major attraction there,”, said Govinda Kusum, a senior Home Ministry official. King Tribhuvan used to ride the Mercedes when there were no other cars in the country, and it currently lies on the palace grounds, after an engineering college in Kathmandu said they didn’t have enough money to restore it.

Philipp Freiherr von Boeselager, the last surviving member of a cabal that on July 20, 1944 attempted to kill Adolf Hitler with a briefcase bomb, has died at the age of 90, according to a statement released Friday by the German Bundeswehr.

Von Boeselager, then a Major in the German Wehrmacht, was one of a number of officers involved in the Stauffenberg plot orchestrated by Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg.

He was born near the German city of Bonn and started to publicly show his hate for Hitler in June 1942, after discovering that people were being shot due to their country of origin.

Many of the other people who were involved in the plot were executed.

Ukranian manufacturer preparing to sell Adolf Hitler dolls

Ukranian manufacturer preparing to sell Adolf Hitler dolls

Correction — May 3, 2008
 
This article has been retracted. This article has been deemed a hoax. Please see the follow up article, Hitler doll story found to be hoaxed, for more information.
 

Adolf Hitler

News reports are claiming that dolls depicting former Nazi leader Adolf Hitler will go on sale in Ukraine. These reports cite Ukraine’s Zerkalo Nedeli newspaper which reported that a toy manufacturer would release the line of Hitler dolls in the summer.

The 40cm doll will reportedly first be available in Kiev with a £100 (GBP) price tag and comes with a large range of accessories in a presentation box with the dates of Hitler’s birth and death.

Nazis images are illegal in Ukraine, with positive portrayal specifically banned. However, there are allegations that right-wing nationalist politics are gaining strength in the country and that xenophobia and racism are on the rise, including some said to be comparable to that present in Germany under Nazi rule. Fascism and propaganda are also banned.

When the former Soviet Union, including Ukraine, was invaded by Germany under Hitler’s rule 2–3 million Ukrainians were among the casualties, of which 1.5 million were Jews.

Adolf can be dressed in various guises, including “early days Adolf”, which consists of a brown shirt and jodhpurs, and “Wartime Adolf”, which features a grey tunic, black trousers and the Iron Cross medal. The doll also comes with boots and shoes, caps, gloves, full uniforms, cane and belt which can be placed on Hitler, whose arms move, allowing the doll to replicate the famed salute of its real life counterpart.

—Saleswoman

Also included is a model of Blondi, Hitler’s female German Shepherd, who was exceedingly loyal to Hitler. Hitler poisoned Blondi with cyanide in 1945 at the same time as taking his own life in his bunker at Berlin.

“It is like Barbie. Kids can undress fuhrer, pin on medals and there’s a spare head in the kit to give him a kinder expression on his face. He has glasses that are round, in the manner of pacifist John Lennon,” said one saleswoman. The company, which will release the dolls in Summer, says that if demand is high a range of toys themed on the Third Reich may be released, to include barracks, working models of crematoriums and gas chambers, concentration camps and interior models of the chancellery.

The doll is not set to be released until the summer, but BBC News Online has footage suggesting that some stores are selling the doll already.

Screen shot from the movie trailer.

A war museum located in Norway has stated that Adolf Hitler has drawn characters from the Walt Disney film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and were found hidden inside a painting signed “A. Hitler”.

Director William Hakvaag says that colored images of the characters Bashful and Doc along with the initials ‘A.H.’ appear hidden in a painting which tests say date back to 1940, sometime during World War II. Pinocchio is also reported to be among the characters drawn by Hitler. He says that he bought the painting for US$300 at an auction in Germany.

Long before he ruled Germany and his conquest of Europe, Adolf Hitler twice tried, unsuccessfully, to enroll at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in 1907 and 1908. He continued to work as an amateur artist until World War I.

“I am 100 percent sure that these are drawings by Hitler. If one wanted to make a forgery, one would never hide it in the back of a picture, where it might never be discovered,” said Hakvaag. Hitler was reported to have owned a copy of the movie, made in 1937.

Hakvaag also says that the initials on the painting, match other historical documents containing authentic Hitler initials.

So far there has not been any other confirmation of the museum’s claims, but other alleged Hitler drawings that sold at auction have turned out to be forgeries.

Johannes Heesters

For the first time in over 45 years, Dutch operetta singer Johannes Heesters sings in his home town of Amersfoort today. Heesters is, at age 104, the oldest performing artist in the world. Despite his advanced age, he is still active in Germany and Austria both on stage and television.

Heesters has been controversial since he moved to Germany in the 1930s. He continued to perform in Nazi Germany during the Second World War, and was accused of paying a visit to perform at the Dachau concentration camp. Nazi leader Adolf Hitler attended his shows more than once.

Hostile attitudes toward Heesters did not ebb after the end of the war. In 1963 he was cast in a Dutch production of The Sound of Music as Captain von Trapp, but the Dutch audience boycotted the show. He went back to Germany, but is still a Dutch citizen.

Heesters’ biggest wish was to perform in Amersfoort once again. His past is however not forgotten, and there will be organised protest actions against Heesters in Amersfoort before, during and after his show. For security reasons the Amersfoort police will check visitors to the concert for dubious objects.

Hein van Kasbergen, spokesman for the committee “Heesters Raus” (“Heesters, get out!” in German) says: “Heesters is like the inventor of the A-bomb: he has blood on his hands and with his shows he has extended the war.”. “He kept singing for the Nazi regime, for the Wehrmacht, and he earned millions,” said Piet Schouten, another representative of the committee. “We have a problem with that on behalf of all the victims.”.

According to researcher David Barnouw of Dutch Institute for War Documentation, Heesters was not a major war criminal, and there is no proof that he performed in the Dachau camp. “It is nonsense to suggest that there was a warm relationship between Heesters and Adolf Hitler,” says Barnouw.

Mulroney gives an interview following the release of his memoirs.
Image: Joshua Sherurcij.

Written in his new book “Brian Mulroney: Memoirs 1939-1993”, a 1,100-page to-be-released book, former Progressive-Conservative Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, who was PM of Canada from 1984 to 1993, has revealed that he called former Liberal Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau a “coward” and criticised his decisions on the Meech Lake Accord, questions Trudeau’s moral leadership, his refusal to fight against Nazis, his admiration for leaders such as Adolf Hitler, anti-Semitic and anti-immigration views, and his belief in the independence of Québec.

According to the Canadian Press, Mulroney was quoted saying after Trudeau died that he was “an exceptional individual who served his country effectively and well . . . a gallant political warrior who loved his country.”

In his book, one quote says “Pierre Trudeau, Captain Canada? I think not.” Another quote says Trudeau was “opposed to enlightened policies designed to wipe out the curse of Nazism.”

“‘Bunglers’, ‘cowards’, ‘snivelers’ — Trudeau knew whereof he spoke,” Mulroney also writes.

The book not only criticises Trudeau, but former Liberal Prime Minister Jean Chretien and former Quebec premier Lucien Bouchard.

The book hits stores next Monday. A 90-minute special television interview conducted by news anchor Lloyd Robertson entitled “Triumph & Treachery: The Brian Mulroney Story” will air on Sunday night on CTV at 7:00pm ET. [1] Quebec French-language channel TVA will air a version in french.

“This is a Brian Mulroney Canadians have never seen before,” a news release written by Robertson said. “He opens up and shares intimate details about world leaders such as Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher and Nelson Mandela. He also lashes out at his political opponents and deals with the controversies that have followed him through the years.”

“This is a man who questioned the Allies and when the Jews were being sacrificed and when the great extermination program was on — he was marching around Outremont here on the other side of the issue,” Mulroney told CTV.

Trudeau, who died in 2000 at the age of 80 from Parkison’s disease, was prime minister of Canada from 1968 to 1984. He is considered the most well-recognised prime minster and particularly popular with many in Canada. Both prime ministers were from Quebec.

Liberal leader Stephane Dion and many others rebucked Mulroney for his comments.

It is regrettable that, after attending Prime Minister Trudeau’s funeral and praising him as ‘an exceptional individual who served his country effectively and well … a gallant political warrior who loved his country,’ Mr. Mulroney would seem to be at such odds with his own views.

While Mr. Mulroney’s track record in politics may indeed explain his frustrations with Prime Minister Trudeau, they do not qualify him as a historian.

If Mr. Mulroney wanted to fight with Mr. Trudeau when he was alive, that’s one thing. But Mr. Trudeau is not there any more and Mr. Mulroney should respect the man and respect what he did for the country and for the world.

Adversary or not, one cannot ignore Mr. Trudeau’s contributions to Canada. In bringing us the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Prime Minister Trudeau ensured that the human rights of all our citizens would be protected.

Surely Mr. Mulroney wouldn’t dispute that in so doing, Prime Minister Trudeau earned the respect of all Canadians.

– Dion said in a press release on the Liberal party’s website.

“I wasn’t angry when I read it; I was just kind of sorry for him,” said Tom Axworthy, Trudeau’s principal secretary. I just think it’s sad that this former prime minister (Mulroney) is still so consumed by his predecessor that he’s spending time attacking a man who’s dead rather than talking about his own accomplishments. I’m sorry that he still obviously feels so threatened by the achievements of Trudeau.”

Trudeau’s sons, Justin, who will be a Liberal candidate for the Montréal, Québec riding of Papineau in the next federal election, and Alexandre, a journalist, have not yet commented.

In 2005, secret recordings taped by German-born arms dealer Karlheinz Schreiber of his conversations with Mulroney, 68, were released in a book. In them, Mulroney made harsh statements and used bad-language. Schreiber said he paid Mulroney CAN$300,000 ($285,000) during the ongoing Airbus affair, which is now a subject of a legal battle.

Location of Germany

The decomposed bodies of 22 children ranging from the ages of zero to seven and 29 adults have been found in a mass grave, believed to date back to the 1940s, in a Catholic church cemetery in Menden-Barge, a small village in Germany.

The buried are believed to be victims of Adolf Hitler’s program in which numerous disabled people were murdered.

“We assume that these were victims of the Nazi regime,” state prosecutor Ulrich Maass stated.

At least three of the children’s skeletons’ show signs of being physically handicapped, further supporting the evidence that this was part of the euthanasia program.

While most of the bodies look like they were carelessly tossed in the ground, a few adults were placed in coffins.

Medical instruments were also found in the grave, supporting the possibility that the children were murdered by injections and drug overdoses.

Mr. Maass also noted that authorities would investigate the suspected murders and search for any witnesses. Already, a former church assistant said he saw a horse-drawn cart bring corpses to the mass grave.

Apparently, the town remained silent about the existence of a mass grave until about three years ago when investigations led by the local authorities gave evidence that a mass grave may exist in the cemetery.

Mr. Maass also admitted that, after 61 years from the end of World War II, bringing charges against someone would be a difficulty.
