True War Crimes of the Gestapo: Stories of the Feared German Police Force... The Gestapo were the secret police that Hitler instituted to ferret out spies and other people who did not fall in line with his ideologies; if, for instance, someone was suspected of being of Jewish origin, Hitler would send the Gestapo to round them up, take them into custody, interrogate them - often with violent and painful methods - and then either kill or send them to a concentration camp where they would probably die in any case. When the Second World War came to an end, the Gestapo was found to be responsible for the deaths of millions of people. At the Nuremberg Trials, where most of the WW2 criminals were put on trial and then punished, the Gestapo was declared to be an official criminal organization and many of their leaders were convicted of a number of war crimes. In the end, the German secret police force was an organization that struck terror and fear into the hearts of all civilians. What made them so effective was not just their field skills or their ability to complete their mission, but the fact that they enjoyed what they did and truly believed in the skewered Nazi ideology of racism and Anti-Semitism. We will look at some of the horrific stories of the Gestapo, where they destroyed thousands of innocents and trace the lives of a few individual police offers who are known for their brutality and their cruelty during the war...

I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in.

An acclaimed German writer makes his American debut with this gripping and sophisticated thriller reminiscent of The Dinner and the early novels of Ian McEwan, about the murder of a neighbor who had been harassing a middle-class family - and the relative imprisoned for the crime. ´´I had always believed my father capable of a massacre. Whenever I heard on the news that there had been a killing spree, I would hold my breath, unable to relax until it was clear that it couldn´t have been him.´´ Randolph Tiefenthaler insists he had a normal childhood, though he grew up with a father who kept 30 loaded guns in the house. A modestly successful architect with a wonderful family and a beautiful home, he soon finds his life compromised when his father, a man Randolph loves yet has always feared, is imprisoned for murder. Fear is the story of the twisted events leading up to his father´s incarceration. It begins when Randolph and his family move into a new building and meet their neighbor, Dieter Tiberius, the peculiar yet seemingly friendly man living in the basement apartment. As the Tiefenthalers settle into their home, they become increasingly disturbed as Dieter´s strange behavior turns malevolent. Randolph unravels the tale of Dieter´s harassment - the erotic letters he sends to Rebecca, his spying, his accusations of child abuse, the police reports he filed against them. Finally, Randolph admits his own feelings of desperation and helplessness, which ultimately lead to his father´s intervention. As Randolph plumbs the depths of his own uncertainty surrounding the murder - pondering fundamental questions about masculinity, violence, and the rule of law - his reliability is slowly but irrevocably called into doubt. The result is an unsettling meditation on middle-class privilege and ´´civilized life´´ that builds to a shocking conclusion. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Glouchevitch.

If you suffer from a phobia, or fear, of snakes, you most likely find it impossible to picture being relaxed near a snake. Even the suggestion of a snake (or the word itself) can be enough to strike terror into lots of snakephobics.

Happily, with hypnosis, it is now possible for you to cure your fear in complete comfort. All self-limiting beliefs, phobias, and bad habits are simply bad programs buried in the subconscious area of the mind.
