Wielun: the first civilian casualties of Nazi Germany | AFP

The city of Wielun is claimed to be the first civilian target of the Second World War. On the same day, on September 1, 1939, as Nazi Germany attacked Gdansk in the north of Poland, the Luftwaffe bombed Wielun killing over a hundred civilians and destroying nearly three quarters of the town. Despite not having any military targets historians claim Nazi Germany decided to bomb Wielun because it was home to a significant Polish community and no German diaspora, unlike other towns near the border.

Holocaust-themed game: ‘Disgrace’ or good educational tool? (DEBATE)

A reality adventure-puzzle game in Greece has sparked an outcry – over its references to the Holocaust.

In particular, it’s based on the story of German businessman Oscar Schindler – who saved more than a thousand Jews during the Second World War. The games website says that players have to assist Schindler in ‘saving innocent people.’ After the public outrage, the company changed the name of a game from ‘Schindler’s List’ to ‘Secret Agent’ – though the story wasn’t altered.

The Jewish community in Greece has condemned the game.

2018 FIFA World Cup: Volgograd Arena (360 VIDEO)

Volgograd Arena is being built on the site of the former stadium of local club Rotor Volgograd. During the construction process, numerous remnants from the Second World War were uncovered at the site, which was part of the Battle of Stalingrad (the city’s former name) during the conflict.

The stadium is located on the banks of the Volga River and at the foot of the Mamayev Kurgan war memorial complex – at the top of which is the giant “Motherland Calls” statue.

Volgograd Arena will host group stage matches during Russia 2018, and after the World Cup will become the new home of Rotor Volgograd.

German search for WWII missing drawing to sombre close

Nearly 75 years after the end of the Second World War, pensioner Diethild Heubel is still searching for her father, a German soldier who was interned in Austria in a Soviet prison camp in 1945. He is one of an estimated 1.3 million soldiers and civilians who vanished at the end of the war.

This WW2-Themed Bar Serves A $140 Cocktail

Codebreaking WW2-inspired bar The Bletchley has launched a cocktail that costs £100.

It’s called King George VI and it’s gin-based. They use three different liqueurs for the mix: Monkey 47 (gin), Lanique (rose vodka), and Chambord (raspberry liqueur.)

Bar manager David Ammar told Business Insider: “The recipe is coming from Montgomery Collins who was a British Air Force soldier during the Second World War and went to Germany to help them to rebuild everything back once the war was finished. Lanique is a Polish liqueur and the Chambord is French. Those two were helping England during the war.”

The mix is completed with fresh lemon juice and bitter lemon and infused with hibiscus tea, berries, lemon and orange peel.

The infusion is chilled using dry ice and topped up with mascarpone foam, gold chocolates, edible diamonds, and caramel. It’s finished with gold leaves and sprinkles of gold.

Guests also get a sparkling wine bomb made with an English garden jelly and a garnish of French toasts, Polish pancakes, chocolates, and lollipops.

The King George VI takes 30-40 minutes to make.

Anti-fascists vs cops: Violent clashes outside right-wing memorial demo in Italy

Clashes erupted in Pavia on Wednesday, between police and anti-fascist protesters who were trying to interrupt a right-wing memorial for the victims of the Foibe massacres.

Following the Second World War, Italy’s right-wing alliance adopted the commemoration of those who died in the foibe as part of an anti-communist propaganda campaign.

Although the National Memorial Day of Exiles and Foibe is generally accepted in Italy, many supporters of the political left view its recent rise in popularity as a manifestation of neo-fascist revisionism.
