To celebrate this day, I wanna show you a video, that is a bit older (from 2011) but really beautiful. In the video you can hear two songs, the first is "Die Gedanken sind frei" The thoughts are free,
a german folk song from around 1800, sung by a children choir. The second one is the german antheme:
Why did the Germans follow Hitler?In this journal I wanna try to explain all of you, from what I know and read, why the Germans followed Hitler. Many people think, all the Germans were evil racists and everyone wanted to kill jews or hated people that were not blonde.

Before we come to the 3. Reich, I want to explain you the situation before all that happened.
We know 1871, the first german nation the Deutsches Kaiserreich was founded thanks to Bismarck and Wilhelm I and all the german states. During the Kaiserreich the jews got full rights by law and they became very often proud Germans, they changed their names to typicall german ones like Grünbaum, Spielberg, Eisenberg and so on.
There was also an antisemitism, but it was the antisemitism that was used all around Europe, not only in Germany. After some french and british authors made theories about races and that jews are not part of the european race in the 19th century, also german authors started to believe in it.

Denmark 'rewards' returning IS terroristsI can't express how ashamed I am of my country right now... Apparently, Denmark has taken a very soft approach towards returning IS terrorists. Instead of throwing them in jail or out of the country as they should (not one has been jailed!), Denmark is providing "free psychological counseling while finding returnees jobs and spots in schools and universities." Yes, this means that terrorists, enemies of our country, of our civilization, of the entirety of humanity, are wandering freely around the streets of Denmark. And it's outrageous! We're basically rewarding them for their barbaric crimes against humanity. We owe them absolutely nothing, they have betrayed humanity and must be banned from ever entering our soil! At best, they should be killed while down there, I have zero sympathy for them. Of couDenmark 'rewards' returning IS terrorists2 months ago in Personal More Like This
How to make a viking dressI used to be a part of one history reenactment group some time ago. Such groups basically reconstruct elements of daily life of people from a selected time period; my group was interested in early Middle Ages, from the 8th to the 11th century, from the Eastern and Northern Europe. Personally, I used to reconstruct a viking woman from today's Sweden areas. Most of you will be shocked, but vikings were not half-naked barbarians with horned helmets. They had no horned helmets.

Anyway, my favourite part of reenactment has always been all the suit making. Buing materials, planning, cutting, sewing (hand sewing!), embroidering. Then, wearing. Generally, viking clothes are very easy to make, though I admit that the materials aren't the cheapest, if you want to make it as much accurate historically as you can.
Our goal: a simple dress, no emboirdery. This is actually my first viking dress I've ever made.

My Virtues- Prussian VirtuesIn my ongoing series about appreciation of art, I would like to stress that art should not be destroyed for religious purposes. In the Middle East many famous sites of religious and artistic importance were destroyed by the Teleban. It was no better than book burning in the 1930's through the 1970's. The historian in me and the art lover believes that these cultural treasures need to be preserved. Now, the human in me has my personal interests as does everyone else.My Virtues- Prussian Virtues2 years ago in Personal More Like This
One of my dearest to heart is my ancestrial home of Prussia, that land which was wiped from the map by the allied committee after WWII. It is my goal to take back those honors that were tarnished and rebuild something with the old and new. Art is naturally connected to this. Frederick the Great was a lover of the arts. Like all cultures all over God's green Earth, Germany has a unique and special story regarding evolution of art.

The Birthday of AustriaToday Austria is turning 1038!The Birthday of Austria5 months ago in Personal More Like This
On July 21th 976 Margrave Leopold I is first mentioned to be the ruler of the march that would later be known as Austria - that is the closest thing we have to a “Birthdate” for the History of Austria.
After a long war against the Hungarians Emperor Otto I secured his border by establishing marches along it. One of these was placed under the government of a guy named Burckhardt, but when he joint an uprising lead by Henry of Bavaria, he was kicked out by Otto II in 976 – his place was then taken by Leopold, who was a faithful supporter of the emperor.
However it would not be medieval History if there was not a Legend to go with it…
It is said, that Leopold once saved the Emperors life during a hunt. When an angry bear attacked Otto, his bow broke; Leopold reacted quickly and handed him his own bow just in time to shoot the animal. Gratefully Otto handed o

We added a new video permanently on the main-page of the group, because it really touched me.
It is about the downfall of the Germans and their cities in the 2. world war and the big resurrection!
You must know, no country was ever bombed so badly like Germany, the british and american bombers destroyed around 1000 historical cities, often causing a so called firestorm, even in the last weeks of the war, like in Dresden, Würzburg or Potsdam. The capital city Berlin was a collection of ruins, what the Germans built in 2000 years, was destroyed...the allied thought, Germany will become an unimportant land of farmers now, a borderland between east and west. But they were completely wrong, because they forget the character of the german folk! Hard working, disciplinated people that help each other!
And so Germany could rise from the ruins, like a phoenix from ashes and after a few decades, Germany is again the strongest economy in Europe, after two lost world wars. After e

orld War I (1914-1918) was a human catastrophe
that devastated Western civilization and mocked the hope inherent in “modernism”. The sheer volume of the war’s slaughter was beyond belief. The horror of it all destroyed the trust in science, medicine and technology as the golden gateway to a harmonious and peaceful future for humanity. All that was thought to be good had been twisted to the evil purpose of a global war. A global sense of hopefulness was replaced with a global sense of fear and loathing.

Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.

In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.

While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.

Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.

Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

I am not a bad person. I believe in God hardly but I just got lost. I couldn't find my way in Islam, I was alone with all that, no one was next to me to help me and teach about Islam. The problem is that being muslim here is not easy at all, I was forced to be muslim by my ex-boyfriend from Egypt. He was intimidating me and forcing to join islam. After I did and found it a good choice, I prayed 5 times a day, do fast in Ramadan and so on... Then I become hated among my family and friends. It was all really too hard and I was becoming mentaly sick of that all... I decided to leave Islam for my own safety. Just... Please, don't hate me, don't call me a bitch, slut and whatever...
