Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Lots of stories, a few comments:

  • please stop using "riots" to describe the skirmishes and incidents arounf Paris, it's just not fitting;

  • The Struthof camp, near Strasbourg, was technically not part of France when in service, as Germany actually annexed Alsace during the war and made it a territory of the Reich. As a result, young men from the area were forced into the Werhmacht to fight, a sore topic in Alsace still today (if you can read French, the linked article is really good);

  • Le Monde also had a goo piece yesterday about Rusana Guseinova, the widow of an journalist critical of the power in Azerbaijan, who was shot in the back in front of his 16 month old son a few months ago. She is now actively involved with the opposition.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
