#AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES (Philadelphia) – July 09 – An elderly Nazi war crimes suspect will remain jailed in Philadelphia as part of a German criminal case after a U.S. judge denied him bail this week.
Defence lawyers argued that 89-year-old Johann “Hans” Breyer is in frail health and deteriorating in prison. He has heart disease and dementia, and he had a stroke in recent years.
“Due to Mr. Breyer’s age and condition, he is incapable of fleeing or endangering others, as he himself needs daily assistance,” lawyer Dennis Boyle said in a bail petition filed after his arrest last month.
German authorities hope to try Breyer on accessory-to-murder charges for his guard service at the Auschwitz death camp in 1944. Breyer told The Associated Press in 2012 that he was forced to work there as an SS guard but never took part in the mass killing of Jews and others.
He was charged last month with 158 counts of accessory to murder — one for each trainload of victims brought to Auschwitz during his time there.

Under an agreement signed Sunday by Israeli culture ministry director general Orly Froman and German Culture Minister Monika Gruetters, art experts from the two countries will undergo training and coordinate the formation of joint data bases.
“The cooperation between German and Israeli institutions on provenance research of Nazi-confiscated art and Judaica is a great vote of confidence,” Gruetters said in a statement.
Israeli Culture Minister Limor Livnat said the agreement could lead to restitution of art stolen by Nazis to the Jewish heirs, a statement from her ministry read.
Livnat noted the ongoing cooperation between Israel and Germany on Nazi-era art provenance, including the presence of two Israeli curators in a German committee dealing with the collection found in the Munich flat of Cornelius Gurlitt.
Gurlitt, who died last month at 81, was the son of a Nazi-era art dealer who hoarded hundreds of paintings valued at hundreds of millions of dollars.
Prior to his death he had struck a deal with German authorities to help track down the rightful owners of the 1,280 artworks, including Jews whose property was stolen or extorted under the Third Reich.
Art experts from the two countries will undergo training and coordinate the formation of joint data bases.
#AceWorldNews – RIGA – May 19 – Latvian human rights organization Non-Citizens Congress is going to challenge amendments criminalizing “public denial of the Soviet Union’s and Nazi Germany’s aggression against Latvia” in the Constitutional Court.
The organization would go to court if President Andris Berzins approves the amendments introducing criminal penalty for justification of the mentioned aggression, said the organization spokeswoman Jelena Bacinska.
“These amendments ban opinions about historic facts differing from the official line and neglect the freedom of speech, which contravenes democratic values of modern Europe. Neither do these amendments promote cohesion of the Latvian society,” she said.
The amendments adopted last week propose imprisonment up to five years as well as compulsory works and fines.
#AceWorldNews – MOSCOW – May 09 – (NYT) – Russia’s thundering Victory Day parade, a lengthy review of its newly refurbished military and of its most advanced hardware, rolled through Red Square in Moscow on Friday as the event played out under global scrutiny in light of tensions with neighbouring Ukraine.
Celebration of the March annexation of Crimea was not subtle, as the first vehicles to enter the square behind row after row of tightly choreographed marching soldiers made clear.
The first vehicle, an armoured personnel carrier from a Black Sea Marines brigade, flew a big Crimean flag. Some 11,000 soldiers and 150 military vehicles, from tanks to intercontinental ballistic missile launchers, rumbled through the square.
Through cloudless skies, the flyover included 69 aircraft, marking the 69 years since the victory over Nazi Germany in World War II.

#AceWorldNews – German police have arrested a former Nazi medic on suspicion of “multiple counts” of aiding and abetting murder when he was serving as a medic in the Auschwitz death camp, according to the local prosecutors’ office.
A 93-year-old suspect was arrested on Monday at his home near the town of Neubrandenburg, in the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in northern Germany.
A doctor examined the man after his arrest and determined that the suspect “was in good enough health to be held in custody while authorities investigate further,” according to Stefan Urbanek, spokesman from the prosecutors’ office in Schwerin, the state capital.
The prosecutor refused to reveal the pensioner’s identity due to German privacy rules.
The man is now being held in pre-trial detention.
A former member of the SS (Schutzstaffel), a major paramilitary organization under the Nazis from 1925 to 1945, the accused allegedly assisted in massacres of prisoners transported from Germany, Austria, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Slovenia to the Auschwitz -Birkenau camp in September 1944.
#AceWorldNews Latvia’s environment minister will be fired over plans to participate in annual commemorations of Latvian soldiers who fought in Nazi units during World War II, AP reported, citing a government spokesman. Einars Cilinskis, of the right-wing National Alliance, said Friday that he would attend Sunday’s events in Riga.
The politician has ignored warnings from Prime Minister Lamidota Straujuma, who had called on cabinet ministers to stay away from the March 16 events.
They are expected to prompt counter-protests from members of Latvia’s Russian-speaking minority.
#AceWorldNews says that on March 9, legendary Soviet cosmonaut Yury Gagarin, the first man in space, would have turned 80.
His 108-minute epic orbital flight on April 12, 1961 ushered in the era of space exploration – and his charming smile became its symbol.
Blasting into space aboard Soviet rocket Vostok One, Gagarin also blasted into the history of mankind. He returned to Earth as an international hero, proving that a human can indeed fly to the stars.
One of the most famous people on the planet, he remains a much loved and respected figure in Russia. For many, Gagarin is the symbol and pride of the Soviet epoch; the epoch that was not all about the Cold War, Communist ideology, and the Iron Curtain, but also about scientific, engineering, and technical progress and achievements – something that some Soviet-born people still feel nostalgic for in the new era, where market and money rule the game.
Yury Gagarin was born into a poor family on a collective farm on March 9, 1934 in the village of Klushino, near Gzhatsk (now called Gagarin in his honour) in the Smolensk region. In 1941, just as Yury entered secondary school, the village was occupied by Nazi forces who shipped his elder brother and sister to labour camps in Germany.
