darlingdaantje 93 times a train departed from @kampwesterbork to Eastern Europe. On September 3, 1944 you all 8 were deported to Auschwitz.
Today it is 71 years since you started your last trip. Unfortunately, 7 of you never came home.
Rest in peace Otto, Edith, Margot, Anne, Hermann, Auguste, Peter and Fritz.

everyday.russianfederation This is a village Petrovichi next to my native settlement in Smolensk region. The stone marks the place where in 1920 in a small house Isaac Asimov was born. His parents were Jewish millers, they left USSR and immigrated to the USA when Isaac was 3 years old. Asimov grew up in New York, never spoke russian and became a professor of biochemistry and very famous writer. Almost all of Jewish people who haven’t leave the region were killed by nazis during the Second World War. I took some red apples from a very old apple tree which had to remember baby Issac. I ate one and put the others on the monument to commemorate the writer and his people.

Это деревня Петровичи недалеко от моего родного поселка в Смоленской области. Камень отмечает место, где стоял дом, в котором в 1920 году родился Айзек Азимов. Его родители-евреи были мельниками, они эмигрировали из СССР в США, когда Айзеку было три года. Он вырос в Нью-Йорке, не знал русского языка и стал преподавателем биохимии и всемирно известным писателем. Почти все евреи, не успевшие покинуть этот регион, погибли от рук нацистов во время Второй Мировой войны. Я сняла несколько красных яблок со старого дерева, которое наверняка видело маленького Айзека. Съела одно, а остальные положила к монументу, чтобы почтить память писателя его народа.

aksstory سال ۱۸۷۵ در چنین روزی فردیناند #پورش متولد شد. وی طراح مشهور موتور خودرو اهل #اتریش بود. او در سال ۱۹۲۳ به همراه خانواده به #اشتوتگارت نقل مکان کرد؛ چرا که پدر باید در کارخانه دایملر مشغول به کار می‌شد. فری پورش همانند پدر خود علاقه شدیدی به #اتومبیل داشت و همین علاقه بود که به خلق یک شاهکار دیگر در دنیای اتومبیل‌ها منجر شد. فری ریاضیات را در مدرسه و #مکانیک را در کارگاه پدر آموخت. دوران جوانی فری مصادف بود با به قدرت رسیدن هیتلر در #آلمان و فراخوان او برای بازسازی صنایع. هیتلر می‌خواست که آلمان سریع ترین اتومبیل‌ها را بسازد. رویای پدر برای طراحی یک اتومبیل اسپرت بر مبنای فولکس واگن قورباغه‌ای بود. اتومبیلی که بدین شکل در سال ۱۹۴۷ طراحی شد پورش ۳۵۶ نام گرفت. این مدل از یک موتور چهار سیلندر هوا خنک با قدرت ۴۰ اسب بخار نیرو می‌گرفت که در قسمت عقب اتومبیل نصب شده بود. فری در سال ۱۹۴۹ به اشتوتگارت برگشته و کارخانه #پورشه را در آنجا بنیان نهاد. فری برای کارخانه خود آرم شهر اشتوتگارت را انتخاب کرد. او در سال ۱۹۶۳ خودروی افسانه ای ۹۱۱ را طراحی کرد و با این کار اولین #خودرو اسپرت دنیا تولید شد.

thequint With fighter jets roaring overhead, China's leader presided Thursday over a massive parade of tanks, missiles and troops that displayed growing military might, but also pledged to reduce the army by 300,000 troops in a bid to show his country poses no expansionist threat.

The spectacle through the heart of Beijing commemorated Japan's World War II defeat seven decades ago, with helicopters zooming across the sky in an array forming the number 70, but the event also underlined President Xi Jinping's determination to make China the pre-eminent Asian power.

Xi Jinping kicked off the proceedings with a speech from atop iconic Tiananmen Gate, flanked by Chinese leaders past and present along with foreign dignitaries including Russian leader Vladimir Putin, South Korean President Park Geun-hye and U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

The event involved more than 12,000 troops, 500 pieces of military hardware and 200 aircraft of various types, representing what military officials say is the Chinese military's most cutting-edge technology.

The parade is part of commemorations packaged to bolster the ruling Communist Party's self-declared role as the driving force behind Japan's defeat 70 years ago and savior of the nation, though historians say the rival Nationalists did most of the fighting. The events also minimize the role of the U.S., Britain and others, although Beijing has attempted to stress the support it has received from a wide spectrum of foreign nations.
