FRONTLINE UKRAINE: CRISIS IN THE BORDERLANDS

by Richard Sakwa


The unfolding crisis in Ukraine has brought the world to the brink of a new Cold War. As Russia annexes Crimea and tussles for the eastern regions of Ukraine, relations between Putin and the West have reached an all-time low. Richard Sakwa traces the path to the recent disturbances through the events which have forced Ukraine, a country internally divided between East and West, to choose between closer union with Europe or its historic ties with Russia. He examines the controversial Russian military intervention and annexation of Crimea, and reveals the extent of the catastrophe of the MH17 disaster.

PRORA: DAS ERSTE KDF-BAD DEUTSCHLANDS

 by Bernfried Lichtnau

In 1935, under the auspices of the Third Reich's cultural and recreational organization "Kraft durch Freude" (Strength through Joy), Robert Ley enlisted architect" Clemens Klotz for an ambitious project. At Prora, a beach resort on the island of Rügen, a huge resort complex was built for the German Labour Front - DAF. Eight huge buildings were constructed extending over a length of 4.5 kilometres, fronting the long, flat, sandy beach. Although planned as a holiday resort for workers, they were never used as such. During the Cold War the resort was used by the National Peoples' Army of the GDR. Today the partially ruined complex is listed as a striking example of Nazi architecture.
