Woman Arrested For Giving Nazi Salute At Auschwitz

Published

on

A Dutch tourist was charged with Nazi propaganda after doing a Nazi salute in front of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp in Poland.

The woman, 29, was posing in a photograph taken by her husband in what she has described as a ‘bad joke‘. The photo had been taken at the Arbeit Macht Frei (Work Sets You Free) gate.

Guards from the Auschwitz Museum reported the woman and she was arrested and taken into custody. Her husband, 30, was questioned as a witness, and the woman pleaded guilty to promoting Nazism, police added.

The camp is now a museum to the Holocaust and stands in the southern Polish town of Oswiecim. Almost a million of the murdered people at the camp were Jewish – as part of the Final Solution intended to eradicate Jewish people from Europe.

The camp was the site of 1.1million murders by Nazi Germany after they built it in 1939 after the invasion of Poland in September of that year. The vast majority of the murders were via gas chambers at the camp but many died from starvation, disease and even medical experiences at the death camp.

Soviet troops liberated the camp in early 1945.

Guards from the Auschwitz Museum reported the woman and she was arrested and taken into custody. Her husband, 30, was questioned as a witness, and the woman pleaded guilty to promoting Nazism, police added.

Under Polish law she could have faced a prison term of up to two years, according to the police statement. The woman was only fined.

Do you think she deserved jail time instead?

RSPCA Shares Terrifying Reality Of What It’s Like To Be A Dog In A Car On A Hot Day

Published

on

Most dog lovers will be aware of not leaving your pet in a car when it’s a hot day. The poor pups can quickly become dehydrated or suffer from heatstroke, even if the windows are left open. In the worst cases, your dog can die.

Following the news of a scorching heatwave hitting the UK tomorrow, an RSPCA staff member opted to lock himself in a car to demonstrate how dogs feel on a hot day.

Chris O’Brien of RSPCA Cymru took a video of himself sitting in his car for 25 minutes outside his Cardiff office to discover what it would feel like to be a dog. The staff member used a digital thermometer and stopwatch to highlight the different stages of conditions within the car and also how he personally felt.

Within five minutes, the temperature had already risen to 35.1C from an initial 23.3C.

Chris said: “I am baking, it is so, so hot in here. I can’t even begin to tell you.

“Obviously I’m sweating a lot.

“Dogs obviously sweat very differently to humans and regulate their body temperature in a very very different way.”

Within the next 10 minutes, the temperature within the car had rocketed up to 43.6C and a struggling Chris noted how his breathing was getting heavier and his heart was beating faster.

At the 15 minute mark, the temperature had doubled to a whopping 48.8C to a further 50C by 17 minutes.

Watch the video below:

 

 

RSPCA campaigns manager Carrie Stones said: “With normality returning to people’s lives this summer in Wales, it’s more important than ever that we spread the word – dogs die in hot cars. Up to 30 million Brits are expected to holiday in the UK in 2022, and many of us will be taking our four-legged friends along – so these reminders will be vital.

“Awareness raising measures like this from the Welsh Government will help save the lives of dogs. We welcome any steps to remind motorists that – not long is too long when a dog is left in a car. Even a quick stop-off at a shop could prove fatal as temperatures escalate.

“If anyone sees a dog in distress in a hot car, they should dial 999 immediately – but we hope, each year, more and more people will get the message about not exposing their dogs to the potentially fatal heat.”

Ginger-haired people offered free cinema tickets to avoid the sun

FREE Cinema Tickets

Showcase Cinemas are offering ginger-haired people free cinema tickets on Monday and Tuesday so that they can stay protected from the sun.

 

Dubbed SPF (Sun Protecting Flicks), this initiative follows an extreme weather warning issued by the Met Office, with a red heat warning for England between Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th July. Temperatures in large parts of England are expected to reach the high 30s and even 40°C in some.

 

With fair skin and red hair, redheads tend to have an aversion to the sun as they are vulnerable to its rays.

 

Mark Barlow, UK General Manager for Showcase Cinemas said: “While the UK enjoys some much-needed sunny weather, we know how hard some people find the heat.”

 

He continued to add that free entry to cinema screens will be offered to redheads “so they’ll be able to enjoy some of the amazing films on offer in the comfort of our air-conditioned cinema screens and ensure they stay protected from the sun”.

Parents could face an electronic tag in new child maintenance enforcements

Parents could face an electronic tag

The Department for Work and Pensions is considering a new lockdown-style curfew to be imposed on parents who persistently fail to pay child support in the form of an electronic tag that will track their location.

 

This comes as part of a new crackdown in which the DWP are following proposals to retrieve more money owed to the children of separated parents. Their Child Maintenance Service has said that these child support payments are “a crucial weapon in the battle against child poverty,” helping to lift around 140,000 children out of poverty each year.

 

The curfew orders will act as an alternative to, but act alongside, other methods of enforcement already in place such as passport and driving license confiscation or earnings deduction orders. Some non-compliant parents who continually refuse to pay even face prison, but the CMS have recognised this to be costly and further preventing payments.

 

Curfews would be controlled by an electronic monitoring service which would keep track of non-compliant parents in order to make sure that they follow the sanctions placed upon them. The CMS hope that this will act as a “deterrent” by restricting and disrupting the lifestyles of non compliant parents’ lifestyles, “stopping them, for example, from going out for dinner, to the pub or going on holiday.”

 

Failure to comply may lead back to a court referral, which could extend the curfew order or end in the imposition of a prison sentence.

The DWP Lords Minister Baroness Stedman-Scot said: “For low income households, maintenance payments can make all the difference, lifting them out of poverty. We are not afraid to go after those parents who deliberately and repeatedly refuse to pay for their children.”

 

This is one more step towards the CMS gaining full control and powers to make sure children have financial access to the best start in life.

 

These orders are subject to parliamentary approval. Consultations into the proposals began on Saturday and are set to continue until August 12.
