In 2015 krijgen we te horen:
Minister van Buitenlandse Zaken Minderop (Nederland Hoera), die namens de regering aanwezig was op de twintigste herdenking van de Val van Sebrenica, verklaarde dat in 1995 weliswaar helaas vele mannelijke slachtoffers onder de moslimbevolking te betreuren waren, maar dat dankzij de standvastigheid van de toen aanwezige Nederlandse soldaten voorkomen had kunnen worden dat ook vrouwen werden afgevoerd en vermoord.
Let op: het gaat gebeuren ook.
The US military has launched an operation against insurgents around Fallujah only six months after its officials proclaimed the city "the safest place in Iraq". The initiative, launched on Thursday but publicised only at the weekend, involved hundreds of marines supported by 100 Iraqi soldiers sweeping through the fertile farmland and villages south of the city

Kijk Simon, die kan het ook goed.

The feat is scheduled to take place at the historical Juyongguan Gate, a landmark site considered among the top tourist destinations of the Great Wall.

Danny Way, already holds multiple world records including two for distance jumped (24m) and height out of a skateboard ramp (7.14m). These records, set last year, are merely the backdrop to Way's world record setting attempt in Beijing where he will soon unveil his specially designed MegaRamp and try to again break the height record plus another for speed on a skateboard.

Way acknowledges the importance of the Quiksilver Great Wall Jump: "Skateboarding has yet to realize its full potential and by bringing this event to the people of China and the rest of the world, I hope to contribute to the future of skateboarding and the global attention this sport can achieve," he said.

In every American war from the Revolution to the Persian Gulf War, military men and women captured the horror, pathos and intensity of warfare by writing letters home. Many of them were still teenagers at the time. Taken together, the letters form an epic record of wartime events. Read individually, they reveal the deep emotions of people in the midst of a unique -- and terrible -- experience. Featured here are excerpts from some of the letters in Andy Carroll's book, War Letters: Extraordinary Correspondence from American Wars, dramatized in the American Experience film. Read each excerpt to find out more about the letter writer, and what happened to him or her at the end of the war.

" You may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you " Leon Trotsky

Ever since I can remember, I've been troubled by the state of things. Maybe it was all that talk about heaven in Sunday school. A perfect world, why isn't it like that here? I feel ripped off. Even the animals didn't eat each other in heaven. Imagine that. Given this beautiful planet and all our talents, one would think that things for us would be a lot better than they are. I suppose I've carried a general disappointment in human nature for quite a while and that makes itself apparent in most of my work. It seems to me that in terms of what we do to each other and to our environment, we really are fiddling while Rome burns. Perhaps we are either too smart or too dumb for our own good.

You are invited to anonymously contribute your secrets to PostSecret. Each secret can be a regret, hope, funny experience, unseen kindness, fantasy, belief, fear, betrayal, erotic desire, feeling, confession, or childhood humiliation. Reveal anything - as long as it is true and you have never shared it with anyone before. Create your own 4-by-6-inch postcards out of any mailable material. But please only put one secret on a card. If you want to share two or more secrets, use multiple postcards. (Please do not email your secret.) Please put your complete secret and image on one side of the postcard. Be brief - the fewer words used the better. Be legible - use big, clear and bold lettering. Be creative - let the postcard be your canvas.

On Monday night a boy jumped out of his dorm room window on the 8th floor of a dorm at my school. No one knows why he did it, one of my very closest friends was good friends with him and he didn't really see it coming. I wish Morgan had known about this site because I think maybe he would have realized that there are a lot of people who don't feel like they fit in anywhere, and some people believe that's why he decided to end it. Seeing some of these secrets is really shocking and heart breaking but in the end it just draws everyone closer together as a people. And who knows, someone's secret might reach out and save someone's life."

i am a psychotherapist. while doing paperwork after a long, long day i heard the story about the website on npr. i checked it out right away...a good distraction, i thought. these secrets are the kinds of things i hear all day long. shame, guilt, guilty pleasures, simple pleasures, pride, fears. the images are so powerful, the notion of giving away your secrets to the world, a release. can i refer my clients to this?"

Memory of the camps.

Sixty years ago, in the spring of 1945, Allied forces liberating Europe found evidence of atrocities which have tortured the world's conscience ever since. As the troops entered the German concentration camps, they made a systematic film record of what they saw. Work began in the summer of 1945 on the documentary, but the film was left unfinished.

FRONTLINE found it stored in a vault of London's Imperial War Museum and, in 1985, broadcast it for the first time using the title the Imperial War Museum gave it, "Memory of the Camps." Klik op watch the full program online. Er zijn wat films om te zien hoe het was. En toch zijn er nog mensen die alles ontkennen. Vreselijk toch ?
