    Notorious SS unit 'traced' Polish authorities claim to have identified three survivors of an infamous SS unit that garnered a reputation for brutality that shocked even German wartime commanders. By Matthew Day in Warsaw Published: 5:47PM BST 17 Apr 2009 Prosecutors attached to Poland's Institute of National Remembrance (IPN), the body charged with investigating crimes committed during the war, have announced that they intend to bring the men to justice for their apparent involvement in the suppression of the Warsaw Uprising while serving with the SS Dirlewanger Brigade.

    He was a soldier in one of the most fanatical divisions in Hitler's war machine. As a member of the SS, Heinrich Steinmeyer expected little mercy as he surrendered to British troops towards the end of the Second World War. But instead, he says he was treated with humanity by both the troops who captured him and the guards at the Scottish prison camp where he was kept until the end of the war. Sixty-five years later, Mr Steinmeyer has pledged to leave his home and life savings of Ł430,000 to elderly residents in the village of Comrie, Perthshire, as...

    A reading of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform report on ACORN leaves only one conclusion, ACORN is a criminal enterprise. In fact, the only doubt, according to the committee, that ACORN is not RICO was a debate late in the report whether it is technically an organization. The evidence gathered by the committee is damning. The committee quoted several news sources, "insiders", Marcel Reid, Karen Inman, Anita Moncrief, and the law firm of Harman, Curran, Spielberg, and Eisenberg. HCSE was retained by ACORN as outside legal counsel. Ironically enough, a lot of the most damning evidence came from...

    Following overwhelming House passage last week, the Senate tonight voted 74 to 14 on a procedural move that essentially guarantees a major expansion of a national service corps, a cornerstone of volunteerism that dates back to the era of President Kennedy. It’s akin to a call to arms by President Obama, who has harkened back to those early days to demand giving back by those who voted for him. In fact, Senator Edward M. Kennedy, the senior Democrat from Massachusetts whose battle with brain cancer has oft kept him absent from the Senate these days, appeared on the floor to...

    An Oklahoma City police officer wrongly pulled over a man last week and confiscated an anti-President Barack Obama sign the man had on his vehicle. The officer misinterpreted the sign as threatening, said Capt. Steve McCool, of the Oklahoma City Police Department, and took the sign, which read "Abort Obama, not the unborn." Chip Harrison said he was driving to work when a police car followed him for several miles and then signaled for him to pull over. ''I pulled over, knowing I hadn't done anything wrong," Harrison said in a recent phone interview. When the officer asked Harrison if...

This year, Basij Week ended on November 27 with extensive media coverage and a raft of activities, including a high-profile review march by 15,000 Basij members in Tehran.

    For decades, a fairly consistent share of workers -- about 60 percent of women and about 52 percent of men -- have claimed a Social Security check at 62, the earliest age at which most people qualify for benefits. However, collecting Social Security before "full retirement age," which is climbing gradually to age 67, results in a permanent reduction in a person's monthly payout, says the Wall Street Journal. In a study published in June by the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College, researchers found: Some 48 percent of women and 43 percent of men who turned 62 in...

    The toughest questions. The best calculators. The coolest strategies. And a lot more. Starting in January, the first of an estimated 78 million baby boomers turn 62 years old and become eligible for Social Security. Time to reach for the aspirin. Now in its eighth decade, Social Security is arguably more important -- and certainly more complicated -- than ever before. Boomers, for the most part, are on their own when it comes to planning for later life; pensions and related safety nets are disappearing from the workplace. Thus, Social Security checks -- the closest thing to a sure bet...

Vacated by the Belgian army last year, it sheds light on the systematic brainwashing that churned out a generation of fanatics. Now it's being spruced up to teach visitors about the perils of indoctrination.

    These days, he is mostly known as a German scholar who hid his youthful membership in the SS while publicly affirming support of Germany’s left-wing Social Democratic party. But Jonathan Brent, editorial director of the Yale University Press, shows us in the September 8th installment of the Chronicle of Higher Education that Grass has long been ambivalent, at best about the nature of totalitarian governments. Moreover, Brent has found that this ambivalence is alarmingly typical of students and can have disastrous global implications in the work of graduates. In 1987, Brent and Irving Howe got a chance to see Grass...

    Poland's Walesa says Grass owes Poles explanation By Natalia Reiter REUTERS 8:58 a.m. August 18, 2006 WARSAW – Polish Solidarity hero Lech Walesa urged German author Guenter Grass on Friday to prove that a confession about his membership in Hitler's SS was not just a marketing ploy to promote his new novel. The former Polish president also said he would give up his honorary citizenship of Poland's city of Gdansk, if Grass, also a holder of the same title, failed to explain why he decided to confess when his autobiography 'Peeling Onions' came out. 'If Grass will not address his...

    Jewish leader criticizes Grass 2 hours, 11 minutes ago BERLIN - The head of Germany's main Jewish organization has criticized writer Guenter Grass for waiting decades to reveal that he had served during World War II in the Waffen-SS, the Nazis' dreaded military force. Charlotte Knobloch, president of the Central Council of Jews, said Tuesday that the admission negated Grass' longtime criticisms of German politics and society for not adequately dealing with the Nazi past. "His long years of silence over his own SS past reduce his earlier statements to absurdities," Knobloch was quoted as saying by the Netzeitung online...

"My silence over all these years is one of the reasons I wrote this book [Peeling Onions],"...

    Yesterday I visited Buchenwald concentration camp, the largest such camp in Germany (the larger ones Germany put outside of Germany.) Since it is my 4th time in Germany I felt kind of an obligation to visit it...a duty to face the truth in this beautiful land. Most of the camp is gone, almost all of the prisoner's barracks are. Outside the fence, about half the SS barracks are there--nicely painted yellow, with red tile roofs, resembling ten thousand other German buildings in other places. I had heard that birds don't roost inside the camp , and I think it may...

    Enhanced pension deals are county's albatross... The county has the distinction of carrying more retirees (6,050) than active employees (4,631) on county health insurance. Add in 3,100 spouses and dependents of retirees, and the county is insuring more than 9,000 individuals on the retiree side. The county now pays out more in health care for retirees than for active employees. In addition to her monthly check, she was promised, and cherishes, free health insurance for the rest of her life. It is the sum of such promises to Schumann and 6,000-plus other retirees that is a major stumbling block as...

That's why when the 59-year-old Cape Girardeau resident is asked for it, she's more than reluctant. She refuses. "I guess I'm just stubborn about it," she said last week. "I have no idea what they're going to do with it or where that number is going to wind up. My Social Security number is just private to me." (Me)has lost doctors, changed where she shops and told more than one eye-rolling cashier that she...
