Пивная зла: как антисемитские лозунги Гитлера нашли поддержку в Германии

24 февраля 1920 года в мюнхенской пивной «Хофбройхаус» Адольф Гитлер и его единомышленники учредили национал-социалистическую партию. От этого дня до прихода фюрера к абсолютной власти оставалось всего 13 лет. Партия с самого начала провозгласила антисемитский уклон в своей политике — и уже в 1938 году поддержала франко-польский план выселения европейских евреев на Мадагаскар. О том, как могла бы развернуться история Второй мировой войны и каких масштабов достиг бы холокост, если бы план трех стран сбылся, — в этом материале. Всё начинается с пива. Старейшая в столице Баварии пивная «Хофбройхаус» открыла свои двери в 1607 году и прославилась на весь мир …

Zinedine’s zen vs Pep the perfectionist: Guardiola against Zidane is one of the great managerial culture clashes of our times

Zinedine Zidane insisted this week that Real Madrid’s Champions League last 16 tie against Manchester City was about far more than just him pitting his wits against Pep Guardiola for the first time in the dugout. “It’s Real Madrid vs Manchester City, there’s nothing about Guardiola vs Zidane,” the Frenchman told the attendant press at the Bernabeu on Tuesday.

Зеленский лучше Гитлера. Ростислав Ищенко

Киев готовит большую войну. В войне заинтересованы как местные радикалы, так и внешние глобалисты. Вылазка диверсантов в Луганске, разведывавших тропы сквозь минные поля, обстрелы донецких и луганских населённых пунктов, репетиция майдана в связи с самолётом и автобусом с вернувшимися из Китая туристами, казалось бы пустые заявления президента, осталось поджечь Буди́нок Верхо́вної Ра́ди, а то и весь Хрещатик, – и всё ради большой войны, которая может быть приурочена к Великой Победе Проблема почти сутки кружившего над Украиной самолёта с её гражданами, эвакуированными из Китая, быстро вытеснила из новостных лент сообщения об очередном обострении в Донбассе.

The review was published on Tuesday following hearings over the past two years. The investigation, which went into allegations dating as far back as the 1960s, concluded that “political parties showed themselves, even very recently, to be more …

‘She likes the banter’: Raheem Sterling reveals daughter trolls him with Mo Salah chants

In an alternate timeline Raheem Sterling could well have been lining up alongside African star Mohamed Salah in Jurgen Klopp’s all-conquering Liverpool, and this is something which would apparently have delighted his daughter. Sterling could be forgiven for wanting a little respite from his former club this season, given how Liverpool are all but certain to wrestle the Premier League crown from Manchester City and have reached two Champions League finals (winning one) in the last two years – an achievement which has eluded Sterling since he signed up to join the blue half of Manchester in 2015.  But, as …
