Home Germany

There are about home and home home only in Germany? We always knew it: home only exists in Germany. That’s at least from anglophone perspective. Because, as the English Wikipedia tells us, for the German Word home there no exact equivalent in English – in French by the way, also not. Peter Asaro follows long-standing procedures to achieve this success. Home, so we read further, have anything to do, a “spatially specific social sphere” with the relationship between humans and a “spatial social unit”, so we want to translate again. “Relationship between man and space” is – the difference somehow significant – in the German edition of same network encyclopedia. Home, man, space in a set; There would definitely somewhere on very German territory, or not? The musty smell had frankly we home always believed that this not really not concerns approach us, at least in terms of territory.

This was home, but this musty corner, where it smelled like stale cauliflower; Maggi and the glutamate-containing Finished seasoning at whose smell we always left just embarrassed restaurant. And now? After fourteen months absence from this home appropriate to us”- has this relationship with the spatially specific social sphere changed? Not fundamentally or, to go on the nose, home has not lost its musty scent for us. We still ask ourselves why cope the English-speaking world just fine with “home”, the French with the cute “berceau” (“cradle”) and only we Germans use something so heavy crude such as ‘Home’. Mentality thing? Home and at home but keep. Yes, the word hasn’t lost home to us their olfactory cosmopolitical justified horror; Maybe we understand it but now at least partly.

Not the part of home that would swing the flags; the still does not. But the other, childish naive, which describes an environment, the much smaller is, as a territory, in which but feels at home without asking, to think. Why? Now, she may smell this home maybe bad, but you know the smell just long. You know”the code”, one could also say: man who knows, must neither ask nor fear, to find his way, and know how the people around to tick. Home as a recreational space? Yes, somehow it is. The absence of material distress (nota bene!), assuming it lives in the home, in the social sphere, in the inside it is been socialized, probably the easiest, and not just in the South Seas paradise, at least not on time. So we need this relationship, this home? Yes, somehow, so much we resist us. Without roots it isn’t for us probably, but still rather be home, we say.

The Four Battles Of Monte Cassino

Cassino, which was the scene of several battles between January and May 1944 was one of the most important places of the second world war. The battles concerning the town of Cassino and the Abbey of Monte Cassino, were four and took place between January and May 1944. It was the intention of the allies to strike – the line of fixtures, which then divided Italy into two parts, with the Allied forces in the South and the Germans in the North, and moved through the city Cassino to Rome to lay siege and to join with the allies, who had remained after operation shingle in the vicinity of Anzio, a breach in the Gustav line. The Germans had arrived in Cassino on October 14, 1943 under the leadership of Austrian Colonel Schlegel, who commanded the Goring Panzer Division. The Colonel warned Gregorio India square, the Abbot of Montecassino, being that soon the center of German resistance would become the area, and thanks to this warning many treasures preserved in the Abbey could be saved by transported them to Vatican with 120 trucks (8 December). Also the People who lived near the Abbey, were evacuated, and the Germans fortified the city Cassino with trenches, minefields, and much more.

If you visit the Museum of Cassino, you can learn more about this chapter in the history of the second world war. As already mentioned, Cassino was a mainstay of the German defense and a strategic point, to reach Rome; to break the Gustav line, the allies repeatedly attacked the city. The first two battles that took place between January 12 and February 12, 1944, and February 15, 1944 were disappointing for the allies and led to the destruction of the city and the Abbey. After the Allied attempt to conquer the Abbey, the first battle of Monte Cassino ended with the victory of the Germans; the second battle is known because of the bombing of Monte Cassino, the part of the goals of the allies was, because it was believed that the monastery of German troops occupied. Based on this false assumption, Monte Cassino was bombed the whole morning of 15th February, until the Monastery was turned into a pile of rubble. The bombardment caused numerous deaths and injuries among the soldiers and among the civilian population, who had sought refuge in the monastery, but the area was still in German hands. During the third battle, which began on March 15, 1944, the entire city of Cassino was destroyed by bombs, which caused many victims among the civilian population and the British and Neuseelandischen soldiers, and on the same day the allies went over to the attack, but were immediately blocked by the Germans. The attacks lasted until March 22: Although the third battle had resulted in no Allied victory, the losses among the Germans were substantial, and the Allies began to prepare the fourth battle, which lasted from 11 to 19 May 1944. At the military Museum of Cassino, you can find many testimonies about this phase, which ended with the victory of the allies, this time in the State were to seize the area and to put an end to one of the bloodiest chapters of the second world war in Italy.
