This is a 1940 Stoewer Arkona, powered by a 3.7 liter straight six which produce 80 hp. Only 201 of these German luxury cars were built before the factory switched to building off road scout cars for the German army during WWII. The factory used slave labor from the concentration camp it operated during the war, so after the Nazi’s were defeated, the Russian army dismantled the factory and several company executives were tried for war crimes. It’s sad that such a beautiful car has such a dark story.
During WWII, England sent thousands of
Nazi POWs to stately homes where they
could eat, drink, play pool, and even keep
servants. They had no idea that all of the
rooms were bugged and many of their
fellow ‘prisoners’ were actually Germans
of Jewish origin who became spies for
the British after being forced out of their
homeland. The information gained was
so important that the government gave
them an unlimited budget. Source
Byzle Morgan’s head, neck and face are marked by racist tattoos. He also has a teardrop tattoo under his eye, which typically signifies that the person has killed someone, and a swastika in a clover under his other eye. But jurors saw none of that when he appeared in court this week because he had concealer covering them.
Each day a professional cosmetologist meets Morgan prior to the jury being brought into the courtroom and applies his makeup. It is then removed before he returns to the county jail.
Morgan is being charged with robbery after he allegedly stole a man’s motorcycle at gunpoint. He also faces the death penalty in a different case he is accused of killing a 75-year-old woman days before the robbery.
Too bad we can’t change the color of black defendants in order to protect them from the racial prejudices of the jury. #Hate it!
In 1945, future US president
Dwight D. Eisenhower predicted
that people would one day deny
the existence of the Holocaust. He
therefore ordered that all possible
photos be taken and had Germans
from surrounding towns brought inside
death camps to prevent the events
from becoming labeled as ‘propaganda.’ Source
it’s cool if you’re a vegan and all, that’s awesome, but the second you start to compare corporate farms to nazi death camps you cross the line from being an animal rights acitvist to being a person who dehumanizes the 6 million jewish, lgbt+, black, and romani people who were killed during the holocaust, and that is NEVER ok.
The now abandoned Beelitz Heilstätten Military Hospital in Berlin, where Adolf Hitler was treated for his war wounds in WWI. This hospital is the reason Hitler survived and went on to reign terror in WWII, 21 years later.The dilapidated building is reportedly haunted by the ghosts of German soldiers who never made it out of the atrocious battle alive.
