german underground

what really disturbs me about trump is that he says he’s proud to have that “german blood”. i’m an almost 20 years old german girl and never in my life i’ve heard a german say that he’s ‘proud to be german’. don’t get me wrong, it’s not like we’re ashamed but with a past like ours we’re just very careful using words like this. yet these expressions are mostly used by german nazi underground groups and also by donald trump, future president of the united states of america.

Techno ist Underground. Nie Mainstream. Bei Techno geht es um die Musik – nur um die Musik. Techno ist nichts für den schnellen Musikkonsum, sondern der Soundtrack für die Reise ins Ich. Und: Techno ist nicht gleich Techno. Dunkel und endzeitlich ist zum Beispiel der Sound von Rebekah und Rødhåd. Melodischer, treibend dagegen der Drumcode-Style von Adam Beyer, Alan Fitzpatrick und Sam Paganini. Schnörkellos und puristisch klingen Klaudia Gawlas und Torsten Kanzler mit ihrem straighten abstract-Techno. Viele Strömungen – eine Leidenschaft, die alle für immer verbindet: Die Leidenschaft Techno.

Irena Sendler, also referred to as Irena Sendlerowa in Poland, nom de guerre “Jolanta” (15 February 1910 – 12 May 2008), was a Polish nurse, humanitarian, and social worker who served in the Polish Underground in German-occupied Warsaw during World War II, and was head of the children’s section of Żegota, the Polish Council to Aid Jews.

Assisted by some two dozen other Żegota members, Sendler smuggled approximately 2,500 Jewish children out of the Warsaw Ghetto and then provided them with false identity documents and shelter outside the Ghetto, saving those children from the Holocaust. With the exception of diplomats who issued visas to help Jews flee Nazi-occupied Europe, Sendler saved more Jews than any other individual during the Holocaust.

The German occupiers eventually discovered her activities and she was arrested by the Gestapo, tortured, and sentenced to death, but she managed to evade execution and survive the war. In 1965, Sendler was recognized by the State of Israel as Righteous among the Nations. Late in life, she was awarded the Order of the White Eagle, Poland’s highest honor, for her wartime humanitarian efforts.
