The Nazis and your privacy

The nonprofit organization to which I belong recently put the personal data of around 410,000 people on the internet, connected to interactive street maps of where they lived. The data includes their full names, date and place of birth, known residential address, and often includes their professions and arrest records, sometimes even information about mental or physical handicaps. It also lists whether any of their grandparents were Jewish. How would you feel if somebody published your per...

Teens in trouble after Nazi salutes go viral

Two high school students from Minnetonka, Minnesota, photographed themselves performing Nazi salutes and holding a dance invitation full of Hitler-themed puns. “While I do not know whether it was an intentionally hateful message or was created out of ignorance, be assured the students will be disciplined for their actions,” Superintendent Dennis Peterson wrote in an e-mail Friday denouncing the post. “The larger issue is that we, as a community, must do an even better job of educating students ...

Lecturing About Proust In A Soviet Prison Camp

Jozef Czapski was a Polish officer fighting the Nazis in 1940 when he and his fellows were captured by the Red Army and shipped to a gulag (and thus barely avoiding the Katyn Massacre). To pass the evenings, the officers took turns giving lectures about what they remembered best, and Czapski chose Proust. Here’s why. — The New York Times Book Review

New Push To Locate Books Looted By Nazis

Given the scope of the looting, the task ahead remains mountainous. In Berlin, for example, at the Central and Regional Library, almost a third of the 3.5 million books are suspected to have been looted by the Nazis, according to Sebastian Finsterwalder, a provenance researcher there. “Most major German libraries have books stolen by the Nazis,” he said. – The New York Times

Trump chose a thin-skinned, blowhard ignoramus as ambassador to Germany, and now no one will talk to him except Nazis

In many ways, Richard Grenell was the perfect pick for Trump's ambassador to Germany: a longtime Fox News pundit and John Bolton protege whose vanity and narcissism cause him to lash out constantly (and undiplomatically) at the nation he's meant to be charming, and whose thin-skinned insecurity sends him into spirals of misery and approval-seeking a the first hint of criticism. Since arriving, Grenell has isolated himself from German politics, leaders and people, advocating regime change in...

"With the start of the new year, Belgium became the latest European country to ban traditional Jewish and Muslim animal slaughtering practices."

"The move was applauded by animal rights activists but condemned by religious leaders who see the ban as a threat to their communities. At issue is whether to allow religious exemptions to European Union rules that state animals must be knocked out before they are slaughtered, which supporters say is more humane. The United States has similar regulations, but allows for religious exemptions.... Religious leaders say minimizing an animal’s pain has always been central to their traditions, and a r...

'Captain America: The First Avenger' Stands Out in a Glut of Comic Book Films

None Discussions of the mythical "superhero fatigue" were in full swing in the summer of 2011, and the concept has been raised every time a superhero film is considered a critical or commercial disappointment. The basis of superhero fatigue is the idea that audiences will grow tired of the neverending glut of big-budget comic book films, and will stop seeing them en masse. It's quaint to think of film bloggers in 2011 foretelling the imminent implosion of the genre when, seven years later, mega...

Steve King Wants To Know Why The Term ‘White Supremacist’ Is Offensive

In true form, Rep. Steve King (R-IA), who barely squeezed out a win in his latest reelection bid after he lost several corporate donors over his chumminess with neo-Nazis, has a burning question: Why is white supremacy offensive? In a New York Times article on King’s penchant for spouting demonizing rhetoric about immigrants, King himself told the newspaper that he doesn’t understand when “that language” became “offensive.” “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did...

The Spiritual Life: the Call to Stormy Beaches

The spiritual life is often called a battleground, a war between temptations and evil against freedom and grace. The anger and confusions we face as a Church are being felt by many as a war between who we are and who we are called to be as the people of God. The faithful are calling for, demanding actually, that we face our sins of sexual abuse, cover ups and episcopal cowardice with honesty, integrity and action. If the spiritual life is similar to warfare then it could do us well to take a loo...

Ocasio-Cortez: ‘No Question’ Trump Is A Racist

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said in an interview aired Sunday that there is “no question” President Donald Trump is a racist. “The President certainly didn’t invent racism, but he’s certainly given a voice to it, and expanded it, and created a platform for those things,” the newly sworn-in congresswoman told “60 Minutes’” Anderson Cooper. “Do you believe President Trump is a racist?” Cooper asked. “Yeah, yeah, no question,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

Roberto Sierra: Globalizing Local Experiences

Video Presentations and Photography by Molly Sheridan Transcription by Julia Lu Composer Roberto Sierra frequently likes to tell the story of how, when he was growing up in Vega Baja, Puerto Rico, he would hear Pablo Casals playing his cello on television while salsa recordings of the Fania All-Stars blared outside on the street. Most of Sierra’s music—which spans numerous works for soloists, chamber ensembles, and orchestra as well as his massive Missa Latina—has forged a synthesis of these two...

‘Schindler’s List’ and ‘Shoah’: How Two of the 20th Century’s Greatest Films Illuminate Each Other

Two of the 20th century’s greatest films are bound together by the same historical tragedy. When it arrived in theaters in mid-December 1993 — just six months after his summer blockbuster, Jurassic Park — critics and audiences alike embraced Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List as a masterpiece. More than just an awards season drama, the film provided what’s been called a “first foundational encounter with the Holocaust” for a whole generation of viewers. It soon emerged as the crowning achie...

Traveling to Elista

On my journey from Murmansk, Russia, to Kerman, Iran, Kalmykia’s capital city of Elista wasn’t a destination I had planned on visiting, but merely a stop that appeared convenient on the map as I tried to reach the Georgian border before my visa expired. The Republic of Kalmykia is a region surrounded by barren flatlands and located between the southern provinces, where ethnic tensions have caused decades of armed conflict, the Caspian Sea, and the rest of Russia.

"Just how much of a Nazi was the most important American architect of the 20th century?"

"Per Mark Lamster’s new The Man in the Glass House: Philip Johnson, Architect of the Modern Century, the answer is nothing short of astonishing, albeit only in the negative sense of the word," writes Armin Rosen in Tablet.In 1934, the 28-year-old Johnson and one of his assistants left their posts as architectural curators at the Museum of Modern Art to begin a brownshirts-style discussion group and activist organization in Johnson’s Manhattan townhouse. Johnson had been enthralled by a Hitler Yo...
