Ach Mamaaaa, ich hätte so gerne eine neue Mütze Soll ich dir eine stricken? Eine Blaue soll es sein oder eine Graue. Er zeigt auf mein French Cancan Tuch, welches ich gerade zufällig trug. So eine richtige Pudelmütze, so eine wie Mama sich letztes Jahr gemacht hat? Nee mit ganz vielen von diesen Zopfmustern. Ich schau mal was sich da machen lässt. Vor ca 4 Wochen hatte ich genau so ein Gespräch mit meinem ältesten Sohn. Und klar, wenn eins der Kinder was von mir gestrickt haben möchte, fackel ich nicht lange und schon geht es los.
Zumal Santino sich wirklich aufrichtig über meine handgearbeiteten Sachen freut und sie gerne und häufig trägt. Aber so eine richtig passende Anleitung habe ich nicht gefunden Geht ihr auf ein Stricktreffen?
Ich leider viel zu selten. Aber es gibt eine Strickrunde, die habe ich besonders gern und das nicht nur wegen der sympathischen Strickerinnen, sondern auch, weil jede ihre fertigen Projekte der letzten Wochen mitbringt und das immer in ein herrliches, bewunderndes Ahhh und Ohhh endet. Begeisterung und Inspiration pur sag ich euch! Und genauso erging es mir beim letzten Treffen, als Rike ihren Zweig Sweater hervor holte.
Ich war sofort angefixt. Gänzlich überzeugt hat mich dann letzten Endes, dass ich Rikes Exemplar mal Probe tragen durfte und der moderne, lockere Sitz des Sweaters ist genau mein Fall. Sofort war klar, dass wird mein nächstes Projekt. Zweig Sweater von Caitlin Hunter auf englisch via ravelry.

Welch Glück, dass unserer Str Endlich, endlich nach über 2 Jahren habe ich es geschafft den 3 Color Cashmere Cowl von Joji Locatelli fertig zu stricken.

Prior to evacuation of the camp, prisoners were shot to death on 31 August - 1 September The 70th anniversary of this execution of those who resisted Nazi occupation was commemorated at the museum in Polish Leon Weintraub was in the camp, age 18, as one of a string of Nazi camps until he escaped from a train to a town in the Black Forest just as the Allied Armies liberated it.
The two men were sent to Dachau, where they were liberated. Polish writer Tadeusz Borowski came from Auschwitz and was held here briefly at the Dautmergen subcamp, and then sent to Dachau, where he was liberated.
Boris Pahor , a Slovenian man and noted writer born in Trieste, survived his time at this camp, and wrote an autobiographical novel about his experience, Necropolis , now translated into many languages. His main character visits Natzweiler-Struthof, where he was held twenty years earlier, and recalls his experience. Hayter who were involved in "The Great Escape" and murdered by the Gestapo after re-capture,  were cremated at Natzweiler-Struthof. British bomber Sergeant Frederic Habgood was hanged at this camp, after his plane crashed in Alsace on 27 July and he was betrayed to the Nazis by a local woman.
His death was known as a war crime in and his family was informed, but the most personal evidence of his presence there, a silver bracelet with his name on it, emerged out of the soil in July , as an area with flowers was being watered by a volunteer. The camp had five commandants and numerous doctors in its history. The Jewish skeleton collection was an attempt by the Nazis to create an anthropological display to showcase the alleged racial inferiority of the "Jewish race" and to emphasize the status of Jews as Untermenschen "sub-humans" , in contrast to the Germanic Übermenschen "super-humans" Aryan race which the Nazis considered to be the " Herrenvolk " master race.
Some initial study of the corpses was performed, but the progress of the war stalled completion of the collection. The collection was sanctioned by Reichsführer of the SS Heinrich Himmler , and under the direction of August Hirt with Rudolf Brandt and Wolfram Sievers who was responsible for procuring and preparing the corpses as part of his management of the Ahnenerbe the National Socialist scientific institute that researched the archaeological and cultural history of the hypothesized Aryan race.
In a documentary by Sonia Rolley and others, two historians remark that "Hirt is one of the most absolutely criminal of National Socialist ideology," adds the historian Yves Ternon.
In , the inmates selected at Auschwitz were shipped to Natzweiler-Struthof. They spent two weeks eating well in barracks there in Block 13, so they would be good specimens of normal size.
The deaths of 86 of these inmates were, in the words of Hirt, "induced" at a jury rigged gassing facility at Natzweiler-Struthof on several days in August and their corpses, 57 men and 29 women, were sent to Strasbourg for study. Natzweiler-Struthof was considered the better place for gassing the selected victims better than at Auschwitz , as they would die one by one, with no damage to the corpses, and Natzweiler-Struthof was at Hirt's disposal. The next part of the process for this "collection" was to bring the corpses to the Reichs University, where Hirt's plan was to make anatomical casts of the bodies.
Powerful photos of the corpses as found by the Allies who saw them in the Reichs University make the totality of the strange project quite real, though the intent never justified the project—measurements made under the name of science could not justify the genocide underway. Neither of those steps, making the casts nor reducing the corpses to skeletons, was carried out. In , with the approach of the Allies, there was concern over the possibility that the corpses could be discovered.
In September Sievers telegrammed Brandt: This, however, would mean that the whole work had been done for nothing-at least in part-and that this singular collection would be lost to science, since it would be impossible to make plaster casts afterwards.
Two anthropologists, who were both members of the SS, Dr. Hirt's collection of 'racial types', the man who devised the project of the Jewish skeleton collection. Beger was found guilty, although he was credited for pre-trial imprisonment and served no time.
For many years only a single victim, Menachem Taffel prisoner no. Hans-Joachim Lang , a German professor at the University of Tübingen succeeded in identifying all the victims, by comparing a list of inmate numbers of the 86 corpses at the Reichs University in Strasbourg, surreptitiously recorded by Hirt's French assistant Henri Henrypierre, with a list of numbers of inmates vaccinated at Auschwitz.
The names and biographical information of the victims were published in the book Die Namen der Nummern The Names of the Numbers. August Hirt's project of the Jewish skeleton collection.
Forty-six of these individuals were originally from Thessaloniki , Greece. The 86 were from eight countries in German-occupied Europe: In the remains of the 86 victims were reinterred in one location in the Cronenbourg-Strasbourg Jewish Cemetery. On 11 December memorial stones engraved with the names of the 86 victims were placed at the cemetery. One is at the site of the mass grave, the other along the wall of the cemetery. Another plaque honoring the victims was placed outside the Anatomy Institute at Strasbourg's University Hospital.
The first camp commandant, Hans Hüttig, was sentenced to death on 2 July by a French military court in Metz , but the death sentence was not carried out. In , he was released from detention after being imprisoned for eleven years. Josef Kramer, the former commandant of the camp during the time of the Jewish skeleton collection project, was arrested at Bergen-Belsen concentration camp on 17 April and tried at Lüneburg in the British-occupied sector for his crimes, including the murder of Jews in the gas chamber at Natzweiler.
The commandant of Natzweiler at the time that 4 female resistance agents were executed, Fritz Hartjenstein and five others were tried by a British war crimes court at Wuppertal , from 9 April to 5 May All of the accused were found guilty; of these, three were sentenced to death and two hanged. Hartjenstein was sentenced to death by firing squad on 5 June Those tried at Wuppertal were: He was accused of having murdered four British female spies.
Heinrich Schwarz was tried separately at Rastatt in connection with atrocities committed during his tenure as commandant of Natzweiler-Struthof. He was sentenced to death and subsequently shot by firing squad near Baden-Baden on 20 March During the night of 12—13 May , neo-Nazis burned the camp museum, with the loss of important artifacts.
Structures were rebuilt, placing the artifacts that survived the fire as they were found originally. The reconstructed camp museum was officially opened on 29 June The European Centre of Deported Resistance Members, a new structure at the site, opened in November , and at the same time, "the museum was entirely redesigned to focus solely on the history of Natzweiler concentration camp and its subcamps.
A documentary film was shown in about the 86 who were murdered in the camp and whose remains were later identified by name, as described above in The Jewish skeleton collection section. The DVD is in French. In the name of Race and Science, Strasbourg — Its goal was to explain what happened at Reich University of Strasbourg, at Natzweiler-Struthof, in the strange use of science in this Nazi project to eliminate the Jews, but keeping some remains for history and science, the project never fully completed, and still shocking in the 21st century.
