A German court on Tuesday convicted a 97-year-old woman of being an accessory to more than 10,000 murders for her role as a secretary to the SS commander of the Nazis’ Stutthof concentration camp during World War II.

Irmgard Furchner was accused of being part of the apparatus that helped the camp near Danzig, now the Polish city of Gdansk, function. The Itzehoe state court in northern Germany gave her a two-year suspended sentence for being an accessory to murder in 10,505 cases and an accessory to attempted murder in five cases.

The court said judges were convinced that Furchner “knew and, through her work as a stenographer in the commandant’s office of the Stutthof concentration camp from June 1, 1943, to April 1, 1945, deliberately supported the fact that 10,505 prisoners were cruelly killed by gassings, by hostile conditions in the camp,” by transportation to the Auschwitz death camp and by being sent on death marches at the end of the war.

New Teachers Are Drawn To The Profession By A Strong Desire To Teach

New teachers are drawn to the profession by a strong desire to teach. They go into teaching aware of the demands of the job and the salary levels they can expect. Once in the profession, new teachers feel a tremendous sense of fulfillment and job satisfaction, much more so than college graduates of the same age working in other jobs. Despite this, teachers leave their chosen profession at higher rates than professionals in many other fields do. By some estimates, 40 to 50 percent of new teachers leave after five years on the job.

“B” Prepared

Several years ago my family traveled the Alzheimer’s Journey and I spent a lot of time going to support groups to learn more about Alzheimer’s and how best to cope and make things easier. In the course of these meetings I learned a very important lesson that can and should be applied to several avenues of our everyday existence. That tip was to always have a Plan “B”.

Redefine And Add Volume To Your Lips With Dermal Filler

Thinning lips and fine lines are both part of getting older. Between our mid-thirties and early fifties we can lose around half of our supply of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance that moisturises our lips from within and keeps them firm, full and hydrated.

We’ve heard a lot about hope recently, but one thing was not said. Hope is scary. Anyone who dares to hope runs the risk of disappointment and feelings of failure.
