Question: why are we fascinated by marches??

Alexandra spitzbarth: tales have many different levels. They tell of miraculous events, have fantastic elements such as witches, wizards, giants and magic beanstalks.

Portrait painter gunter rittner has died

Gunter rittner, one of the most important german portrait painters of the present day, has died. He died peacefully at the age of 93 in a munich retirement home, as his son confirmed on thursday.

The artist had painted famous people such as heinz ruhmann, curd jurgens, walter scheel or franz josef straub. His portraits of ludwig erhard and his successor kurt georg kiesinger hang in the chancellor’s gallery.

The people whose faces he painted had troubled lives. But for him they stopped and sang in silence. "I have the gift of empathizing with people and accepting the essence of others – for a while," the silesian-born politician told the german press agency on the occasion of his 90th birthday.

Manuela rottmann calls for concepts for refugee policy

Manuela rottmann calls for concepts for refugee policy

Klaus schmitt

she wants to encourage the people in the country. Citizens should have a say and raise their voices. "They are all more powerful than they think", said bundestag member manuela rottmann (bundnis 90/die grunen) at a discussion evening on thursday at the goller guesthouse in zeil.
Almost 30 participants came to talk to the 45-year-old from hammelburg, who was elected to the bundestag for the first time in september. Many federal policy issues were addressed; the focus was on social policy, climate protection and immigration.
Manuela rottmann listened to the opinions, suggestions, concerns and criticism of the citizens and promised to reflect on their views and incorporate them into the political discussion in berlin. "I take that with me", she assured.

Germany as a role model?

Rainer baumgartner, who sits for the odp in the habberge district council, worries that those in power are losing sight of climate protection. And this in a country like germany, which should be setting an example thanks to its economic strength. If germany is not serious about climate protection, who is??, he asked.
Manuela rottmann shares baumgartner’s opinion. And she is at a bit of a loss. "I don’t understand", the jurist confessed why the topic of climate protection did not reach the union and the SPD. She says that this may be because there are no longer any environmental politicians in these two parties as there used to be. There was simply a lack of contact persons, she explained.
At the lower level, on the other hand, things work better when it comes to environmental issues, said rottmann. As an example, she cited the state of hesse and the city of frankfurt am main, where she was once head of the department for environment and health. Union and green politicians could talk to each other here.

Abused by his supervisor

Abused by his supervisor

"I grabbed him without malice aforethought and shook him awake", the accused said. The 26-year-old is a staff officer in the german army and wanted to reprimand a colleague subordinate to him at a small celebration. Together with about seven other colleagues, they sat in a circle of chairs, he reported to the court. "He was completely drunk, so I asked him for a word in private and told him not to drink any more, says the accused.
However, he was alone with this story, the description of the injured party was completely different. "If you drink one more sip of alcohol, I’ll knock you over.", his words to the victim are said to have been. "I agreed with him, but he still threw me to the ground and put his knees on my back", the injured party paid.
If the evening had ended with that, it wouldn’t have been so bad. But two more incidents followed. First, it was about a burning cigarette that the accused is said to have printed on the forearm of the other man. But then the victim did not even want to accuse the soldier of intention. "I think he did it by accident", suspected the aggrieved. That would fit with what the defendant says: "I didn’t notice anything about a cigarette on his arm". The others did not see anything either." the burn had healed in about four weeks, but a small scar can still be seen today.

Some time later the accused is said to have grabbed the victim again. "This time I was not lying on the floor, but on my knees, then he choked me", reported the victim.

Only when another colleague intervened, did the accused let him go again.
At the beginning of the trial, the defendant denied the abuse, but eventually he changed his mind – among other things, because his defense lawyer had an effect on him. Above all, the fact that the injured party even exonerated the 26-year-old with his testimony regarding the cigarette made him credible. "If he hadn’t stressed several times that it could have been an accident with the cigarette, then the whole thing would have been much worse", the prosecutor says. After all, this situation could have been prevented by more attentiveness. "He had a lit cigarette in his hand, so he had to be careful where he put it", declares judge marc betz.
The accused finally decided to confess to the crime. "I am sorry. I have never done anything like this before and never wanted to", he explained himself. Despite the late confession, the 26-year-old does not get off scot-free. Because there are some points that do not come in his favor – on the contrary. "The accused acted without any comprehensible or justifiable reason. The motive might have been educational, but he can’t use violence", says the prosecutor. In addition, in the german armed forces, the subordinate is, so to speak, at the mercy of the superior. "If the supervisor takes advantage of this, he must be punished all the more", declared the prosecutor.

“Domingo” is a good-natured whirlwind

After a whole year of living in an animal shelter in spain, the four-legged friend was allowed to travel to kronach, in the hope of finding a great family for him there.

Which breeds in "domingos" ancestral lineage can no longer be found out. But everyone at the shelter agrees on the result: despite the lack of a tail (he does not even have a stump, which is probably congenital), he is a real beauty. His expressive face with beautiful brown eyes is particularly pleasing.

Playful four-legged friend

but also in character "domingo" is a dream. He is extremely friendly to all people and buries all visitors to the shelter with enthusiasm. Because he can be a little bit rough-motoric, no small children should live in his new family. He could knock them over with enthusiasm. "Domingo" means it however not bose, but he is very gutmutig and lets everything with itself make.

His main passion is playing, preferably with pads. Besides playing, "domingo" needs as a temperamental young dog of course also a lot of exercise. This whirlwind is therefore not suitable for couch potatoes. As for his obedience, there is still much to be done with "domingo" be worked. He gets along very well with other dogs.

Wirecard investigation committee resolved in the bundestag

Wirecard investigation committee resolved in the Bundestag

The bundestag has resolved to set up the planned committee of inquiry into the wirecard scandal. The afd, FDP, greens and left voted in favor of the committee in the bundestag on thursday.

The union and SPD government factions abstained. The necessary approval of at least a quarter of the 709 members of the bundestag had thus been achieved by far and was even clearly exceeded.

It is to have nine members, but they have not yet been officially named. The committee can question witnesses and experts and demand to see files. The constituent meeting is scheduled for next thursday (8 a.M.).10.) planned.

Luitpoldbad: the excavators will soon be rolling in

Luitpoldbad: the excavators will soon be rolling in

The groundbreaking ceremony was really only symbolic. Calm has returned to the luitpoldbad. Renovation work will not begin until october, if the short-ton statute allows, says erwin full. He is the project manager at the schweinfurt state building authority: "with the revival of the luitpoldbad, which has been vacant for 20 years, the free state is paving the way for the sustainable renovation and use of its cultural heritage." bavaria is paying 32.4 million euros for the project costs.

First, however, comes the wrecking ball: the 35-year-old mineral baths, which were closed in 2005, have to go. Full: in the course of planning, it became clear that its preservation "is not expedient with regard to the future administrative center". He spoke of a "building lesson.

Resilient
The project is not only expensive, but also complex. The spa is located in a protected area for medicinal springs, and it is also an "outstanding architectural monument in bad kissingen. According to full, it is not easy to preserve it and at the same time bring a modern office into the small-scale former bathing cell structure. It also stands empty for a long time. This has left its mark.

Christmas markets in kulmbach attract many visitors

Christmas markets in kulmbach attract many visitors

On the first weekend of advent, the people of kulmbach, but also many visitors from further afield, still have a real taste for advent and christmas. The streets of the old town were bursting with people from friday to sunday. The weather played along – and so the stroll through kulmbach’s old town alleys, through the oberhacken, through the burggut with its arts and crafts market and through the garden of the old villa in the schiebgraben became a wonderful way to get in the mood for the advent season. More than eighty booths attracted the customers.

Silvana pezzi’s spinning wheel was always in great demand. Pezzi showed how wool is turned into yarn. "It’s easier to spin a uniform dark thread than a thick one," the expert explained. And the wool she uses comes from her own sheep: pezzi owns seven coburg foxes.
"Above all, the decorations go down really well at the christmas market", says silvana pezzi and is positively surprised. Even deputy district administrator christina flauder couldn’t resist the felt stand. "I bought a cushion, the colors are so already", swarmed christina flauder.

The loudest stand at the christmas market belonged to michael schutt. He worked with the motorsage. In just a few minutes, tree trunks became small elks. Then another powerful blow with the axe – and the elk got a small slit on the back side. Because the moose also needs a tail.
At the market there was everything your heart desires: decorations for the advent season as well as sweet and savory delicacies.

Knitted on figure

the christmas market went seamlessly over into the arts and crafts market at the burggut and the martin-luther-haus. There the artists outdid each other. Gabriele stemmler has designed funny moufflons – with a little squirrel on their head. There is also a bavarian mutton with female sausage or mabkrug or a grass-grass mutton with rat. And she even knits around coffee and tea pots. "I knit to shape", laughs stemmler. "The squirrel’s mouth is really funny", sigrid kern tries it on right away.
