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.
