In #GeneralMaczek memorial in #Breda today - instead of #BlackFriday #shoppingtime ... Trying to understand why the Dutch needed to be liberated by Polish, Canadian, Americans after Soviets broke the nazi backbone in the East front... 😳
I think I know why, but it's rather upsetting: Dutch cheered #nazi thugs, enthusiastically joined the nazi army when #Hitler attacked #USSR, cooperated willfully on deporting their jew compatriotes to nazi concentration camps (visit Dutch chamber in #Auschwitz ) #HistoryMatters
And then Dutch cheered the execution (without prosecution!) of #nazicollaborators #NSB after the liberation - just as enthusiastically as they greeted #nazi thugs in the late 30s - begin '40s 🤦‍♀️

Oorlogsachtergrond in een week dat een politieke partij implodeert na o.a. vermeende nazi-sympathieën. In @BNDeStem vandaag een monument voor priester en journalist Arnold van Lierop.

Geboren in Steenbergen werd Van Lierop priester (1921) en werkte als kapelaan in Den Hout en Breda. In 1931 werd hij door de bisschop vrijgesteld om te werken voor de Katholieke Wereldpost, het katholieke persbureau van oprichter Hein Hoeben (foto) aan de Teteringsedijk in #Breda Image
De #KatholiekeWereldpost leverde congresverslagen, nieuwsberichten, feuilletons, achtergrond en opinie aan tientallen kranten en tijdschriften. Onversaagd en onbevreesd.

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites" Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)… Image
People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.
(for one week, as of now)

1/ U vraagt zich wellicht af waarom de overheid opeens is overgegaan tot het op grote schaal uitkopen van #boeren en het opkopen van hun #grond en #landerijen. Het officiële antwoord luidt: om het #stikstof-overschot terug te dringen.…
2/ U vraagt zich wellicht ook af waarom de overheid plotseling is overgegaan tot het massaal kappen van #bomen in #Nederland. De hoofdreden is evident. Het hout van de bomen wordt versnipperd en gebruikt als brandstof voor ‘groene’ #biomassacentrales.
3/ Maar er is nog een andere reden dat op dit moment in #Nederland grote lappen #grond en masse worden opgekocht, kaalgeslagen en vrijgemaakt. En daar wil ik het met u over hebben. 💡
