Also visited the amazing Te Papa Gallipolli exhibition which was very interesting and moving! Weta studios that make props for some of the world's biggest films created these soldier figures which are 2.4 times larger than human sized!

(4/4) “I may not, either, for that matter. But important thing is to leave the positive truth that we’ve done what we could do, for ourselves, for others, and for our world.” “Yes.” He said. “Now let’s do something fun. Do you play an instrument? Do you like music? Do you want to hear some piano?” “Sure. Yes. Not anymore. I used to play, but—“ before I could finish, he invited me to a small musical interlude the the hotel sitting room. “This is what I do every day.” He sat down at the piano. From the fragile keys came notes from various composers that spoke to the wonderfully timeless experience: of individuals who chose to climb a thorny bush just to smell its roses and, after being pricked, even bleeding some, still capture only the essence of the flower. 🌹 🎹 🎼 It is easy to travel from place to place and escape before the parts of a foreign land and its culture get under your skin. It is even easier to focus on the worst parts of other places and call our homeland’s the greatest place on Earth. But if you travel far enough and stay long enough, you will find people everywhere have the same issues. You will see that people here and there want and need the same things you do. Since meeting Ruben, I’ve kept my eyes peeled for female drivers, just to prove Ruben wrong. Not to my surprise, I’ve spotted quite a few. I discussed the topic of driving to my female friend, an English teacher at the Sisian Base School No. 1, where I’ll teach. She holds a license and sometimes drives to work and other places. According to her, many women want to drive here and their husbands support them. As opposed to the men, though, few women work far away from home enough to need to use a car. Most women, however, love driving and are safer drivers than men. While some people of older men think women can’t drive properly (a statement I and many American women have also heard in the US more than once in their lives), Sisian women who do drive just ignore it and do their thing anyway. Kudos. As for gender equality, well, that is another sensitive topic that requires some careful wording and deserves its own post. As Armenians say, Thanks for your attention. This much for now.

(3/4) Ruben told some of his own favorite anecdotes and the mood became light again. I asked him where else in Armenia he had traveled. His answer was, “many places,” but mostly he comes to Sisian because it’s his favorite place. He veered back into the unsettling issues about this place. He was bothered about the unkempt roads. He explained the problem by demonstrating the crippled infrastructure as the result of decades of corrupt leadership. He took money from an imaginary wallet and stuffed it into his pocket. I reminded him that many Americans (and French) complain about the same issue: misappropriation of hard-earned taxpayer dollars while their local businesses and communities suffer. “That doesn’t mean we should ignore it,” Ruben repeated. I reminded him that I chose to come to Armenia in order to do SOMETHING. “The important thing to remember is to do what we can, to keep faith and good spirits. To trust that the situation will improve with time.” “It’s been a very long time,” Ruben muttered. “Armenia is still losing their young men in Nagorno-Karabakh.” I could see the visual image of war overcome Ruben’s face. There was no place for joy, only some kind of bitterness and remorse for the Armenian reality. “Help must come in the form of sustainability. People here welcome innovation, new ideas, and they want their country to be better.” I asked him if he was so unhappy about conditions in Armenia, why did he come here? “You know… I care here to calm my nerves.” His mother had recently passed away. I thought of the irony: he was not the first person who I met, who traveled to escape some sadness, only to be engulfed in some other source of disappointment or anxiety. “What is the meaning of happiness for you?” He asked me. “To reach a sense of fulfillment.” The word “fulfillment” did not translate well, but I did my best to explain that when I do what my heart tells me is true, as a navigator says of “true North” then I feel happy, despite any source of ongoing source of melancholy. “I also want to see change in my lifetime, but it’s more realistic for a post-conflict country to need about 50 years to come around,” I said. “I won’t be here...” he began.

(2/4) “The problem is complex.” “Don’t tell me about complex. Europe went through the same war and look where they are now.” “But when a country loses almost half its men to a genocide, and then half of the ones who survived get killed in war, and another several million leave to spare their lives, a country becomes destitute and people live for a long time in a state of melancholy, with only the thought of their own survival, which isn’t enough to restore a post-conflict country.” “I try to help,” he cried. “I went to the music conservatory and tuned all their pianos. You give them a hand and they want take your whole arm. I said no. No more.” I knew exactly what he was saying. I restrained myself from personalizing the conversation to help him appreciate my point of view. I didn’t want him to think that I was ambivalent nor turning a blind eye. Then I explained that I was a Peace Corps Volunteer English Teacher on a 2-year appointment in Sisian. “Well, I hope you manage.” he said with some appreciation. “You know, I don’t filter myself when I talk about what I don’t like to the locals. I tell them they ought to be ashamed of themselves. And they tell me I’m right.” “Do you speak Armenian?” I asked. “Of course!” he said. “You can criticize them freely because you’re Armenian,” I laughed. “Also, you’re not working for anyone, and you’re respected because of your family.” Ruben knocked his knuckles on the table and lit another cigarette. “We complain about the injustices of our world, but we willfully do harm to our own bodies…” I said contemplatively. “What do you mean?” “If your lunges had a voice, they’d protest against you for killing them with cigarettes,” I said in French carefully. He laughed. “That’s a good anecdote,” Ruben said.

(1/4) “This is Ruben,” Karineh said. She left me at a handshake to take care of domestic affairs after a long day of work at her NGO’s primary site, the Sisian Tourism Center. Ruben rose from his chair, “Ararat” cigarette in one hand. “Bonjour!” “Ah! Bonjour!” I replied. We each surprised ourselves with discovering a fellow French speaker in the heart of Sisian, several hundred kilometers away from Yerevan, where most tourists seek distance from their homelands while still surrounded by the comforts and conveniences of modernity. “Do you like Armenia?” he asked me with a blank face. “Yes, very much. It’s a beautiful country with so much potential,” I said. He nodded, closing his eyes and shaking his head as though he was recalling some breathtaking sight he’d seen somewhere. “The people are lovely, too,” I added. “Aw, yeah, yes, they are.” He agreed with some reservation. “And you?” I asked. “Are you enjoying your stay?” I hadn’t quite introduced myself nor my occupation. I hadn’t even mentioned that I was a Peace Corps Volunteer. “They don’t take care of their women. Not a single woman driver here. Gender equality is awful.” I tried to divert the conversation towards something positive. “What do you like about Armenia?” “I like to wander in the woods and the mountains,” he said. “It’s so peaceful.” “Do you have friends here?” I asked. “Of course!” I’ve been visiting Armenia for many years. My whole family’s Armenian. My grandfather was the first commander of…” I lost his attention for a moment as I realized I wasn’t speaking to a “real” foreigner. I was speaking to the grandson of a renowned WWI military official who immigrated to France at the start of WWI. Many of his grandparents’ relatives and friends died during the massacre by the Ottoman Empire in 1914-15. He was part of the generation of the beloved Charles Aznavour. Ruben was a retired mathematics professor from Paris and virtuoso pianist. My attention resurfaced. Ruben was talking about how much his family, for generations, has done for their homeland, to no avail. I interrupted him: “We can’t blame the poor!” “That doesn’t mean it’s OK, that we should let it be. It’s wrong! It’s a shame!"

O MASSACRE DE KATYN - Sete décadas depois do massacre de Katyn pelo exército soviético cai a sentença. . O tribunal não satisfez a reclamação dos familiares dos mortos quanto à ineficiência dos investigadores russos, decidindo, no entanto, que a Rússia não informou os requerentes suficientemente sobre o destino de seus familiares falecidos. . Após a invasão pela URSS, em setembro de 1939, de regiões polaca do Leste, em virtude do pacto germano-soviético, cerca de 22.000 oficiais polacos, prisioneiros do Exército Vermelho, foram abatidos na floresta de Katyn e em Mednoe (Rússia), assim como em Kharkiv (Ucrânia). . Durante décadas, a União Soviética acusou os nazis por esses assassinatos. Só foi em abril de 1990 que o dirigente soviético Mikhal Gorbatchev admitiu a responsabilidade de seu país nesses massacres. . 💻 Material divulgado pela Euro News em 16 de abril de 2012 > https://pt.euronews.com/2012/04/16/russia-condenada-pelo-massacre-de-katyn . • • 🚫 it is not a political opinion, it is only images and facts that have occurred and must be shown to alert the new generations to the dangers of hatred and racism ⚠️ • • #segundaguerramundial#lasegundaguerramundial#wwi#wwii#eua#winstonchurchill#eisenhower#montgomery#feb#שואה#shoah#iwojima#holocausto#midway#weremember#stalingrad#urss#japan#italy#wordwar#wordwar2#segundaguerramundiall#normandia#overlord#operaçãobarbarossa#dday#adolfhitler#germany#stalin#forçaexpedicionáriabrasileira

O MASSACRE DE KATYN - Retratado acima são exumações em Katyn, em 1943. . Em 1942, trabalhadores de ferrovias poloneses na região ouviram habitantes locais referir-se a sepulturas coletivas de Kozielsk perto de Katyn, tendo sido descoberta uma delas e reportado o caso à resistência polonesa. A princípio, não foi dada importância à notícia, já que ninguém pensava que pudesse haver muitos corpos ali. No começo de 1943, Rudolf von Gersdorff, um oficial alemão servindo como elemento de ligação entre o Grupo de Exércitos Centro da Wehrmacht e a Abwehr, teve conhecimento da existência de valas coletivas de oficiais poloneses. A informação indicava que essas sepulturas encontravam-se na floresta de Katyn. A notícia foi passada a seus superiores - fontes divergem de quando exatamente os alemães tiveram conhecimento do fato, entre o fim de 1942 e janeiro/fevereiro de 1943, e de quando os líderes em Berlim receberam essas informações, entre 1 de março a 4 de abril). . Joseph Goebbels viu na descoberta uma excelente ferramenta para criar uma rachadura entre os poloneses, os aliados ocidentais e a União Soviética, e para reforçar a propaganda nazista contra os horrores do bolchevismo e a submissão dos americanos e britânicos a ele. Após intensa preparação, em 13 de abril de 1943 a Rádio Berlim transmitiu para o mundo a notícia de que forças alemães haviam descoberto na floresta de Katyn, perto de Smolensk, "... uma vala com 28 metros de comprimento por dezesseis de largura, dentro da qual estavam enterrados e empilhados em doze camadas o corpo de 3 mil oficiais poloneses...". A transmissão então começou a acusar os soviéticos de terem cometido o massacre em 1940. . • • 🚫 it is not a political opinion, it is only images and facts that have occurred and must be shown to alert the new generations to the dangers of hatred and racism ⚠️ • • #segundaguerramundial#lasegundaguerramundial#wwi#wwii#eua#winstonchurchill#eisenhower#montgomery#feb#שואה#shoah#iwojima#holocausto#midway#weremember#stalingrad#urss#japan#italy#wordwar#wordwar2#segundaguerramundiall#normandia#overlord#operaçãobarbarossa#dday#adolfhitler#germany#stalin#forçaexpedicionáriabrasileira

Quando nós chegamos os alemães estavam removendo uma camada de terra de um metro de espessura. E nela havia corpos e casacos, dispostos em fileiras. Eles estavam mexendo nos corpos, verificando os bolsos, retirando relógios e montando uma espécie de museu com aquilo fora das covas. Os alemães queriam testemunhas.

O MASSACRE DE KATYN - Retratado acima são Prisioneiros de guerra poloneses capturados pelos soviéticos. . O número de vítimas de Katyn é estimado em cerca de 22 000, com pelo menos 21 768 mortes confirmadas. De acordo com documentos soviéticos liberados em 1990, 21 857 prisioneiros e internos poloneses foram executados após 3 de abril de 1940: 14 552 prisioneiros de guerra (a maioria deles dos três campos, Kozelsk, Ostashkov e Starobelsk) e 7 305 prisioneiros em áreas do oeste da Ucrânia e da Bielorrússia. Do total, 4 421 eram de Kozelsk, 3 820 de Starobelsk, 6 311 de Ostashkov, e 7 305 de prisões ucranianas e bielorrussas. O chefe do departamento de prisioneiros de guerra da NKVD, major-general P.K. Soprunenko, organizou seleções de oficiais poloneses para serem massacrados em Katyn e nas outras áreas. . Entre os que morreram na floresta de Katyn, estavam um almirante, dois generais, 24 coronéis, 79 tenente-coronéis, 258 majores, 654 capitães, 17 capitães de marinha, 3 420 suboficiais, sete capelães, três fazendeiros, um príncipe, 43 oficiais de forças diversas, 85 soldados, 131 refugiados, 20 professores universitários, 300 médicos, várias centenas de advogados, engenheiros e mais de 100 jornalistas e escritores, assim como 200 pilotos de combate da Força Aérea. No total, a NKVD executou mais da metade do corpo de oficiais das forças armadas polonesas. Contando com os massacres nas outras áreas, foram executados catorze generais , entre eles Leon Billewicz. Nem todos os mortos eram de etnia polonesa, uma vez que a Segunda República Polonesa era um estado multiétnico e vários de seus oficiais eram ucranianos, bielorrussos e judeus. Estima-se que cerca de 8% dos militares assassinados em Katyn sejam judeus poloneses. • • 🚫 it is not a political opinion, it is only images and facts that have occurred and must be shown to alert the new generations to the dangers of hatred and racism ⚠️ • • #segundaguerramundial#lasegundaguerramundial#wwi#wwii#eua#winstonchurchill#eisenhower

O MASSACRE DE KATYN - Retratado acima é o mapa das áreas onde ocorreram os massacres. . O termo "Massacre de Katyn" originalmente refere-se especificamente ao massacre na floresta de Katyn, perto das vilas de Katyn e Gnezdovo, localizadas cerca de 19,5 km a oeste de Smolensk, dos oficiais do exército polonês presos no campo de prisioneiros de guerra de Kozelsk. Esta foi a maior das execuções simultâneas perpetradas contra prisioneiros poloneses. Ocorreram outras execuções em campos mais afastados, situados em Starobelsk e Ostashkov, no quartel-general da NKVD em Smolensk, em prisões em Kharkov, Kalinin, Moscou e em locais da Bielorrússia e da Ucrânia ocidental, baseadas em listas de execução de prisioneiros preparadas pela NKVD especialmente para estas regiões. Várias organizações polonesas do pós-guerra investigaram não só os massacres na floresta mas também os ocorridos nestas regiões, e consideram as vítimas polonesas de outras regiões além de Katyn como parte do massacre em geral. . • • 🚫 it is not a political opinion, it is only images and facts that have occurred and must be shown to alert the new generations to the dangers of hatred and racism ⚠️ • • #segundaguerramundial#lasegundaguerramundial#wwi#wwii#eua#winstonchurchill#eisenhower#montgomery#feb#שואה#shoah#iwojima#holocausto#midway#weremember#stalingrad#urss#japan#italy#wordwar#wordwar2#segundaguerramundiall#normandia#overlord#operaçãobarbarossa#dday#adolfhitler#germany#stalin#forçaexpedicionáriabrasileira

O MASSACRE DE KATYN - Retratado acima é uma cova coletiva na floresta de Katyn. . Massacre de Katyn (em polonês/polaco: zbrodnia katyńska; em russo: Катынский расстрел), também conhecido como Massacre da Floresta de Katyn, foi uma execução em massa ocorrida durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial contra oficiais poloneses prisioneiros de guerra, policiais e cidadãos comuns acusados de espionagem e subversão pelo Comissariado do Povo para Assuntos Internos (NKVD), a polícia secreta soviética, comandada por Lavrentiy Beria, entre abril e maio de 1940, após a rendição da Polônia à Alemanha Nazista. Através de um pedido oficial de Beria, datado de 5 de março de 1940, o líder soviético Josef Stalin e quatro membros do Politburo aprovaram o genocídio. O número de vítimas é calculado em cerca de 22 000, sendo 21 768 o número mínimo identificado. As vítimas foram executadas na floresta de Katyn, na Rússia, em prisões em Kalinin e Kharkov e em outros lugares próximos. Do total de mortos, cerca de 8 mil eram militares prisioneiros de guerra, outros 6 mil eram policiais e o restante dividido entre civis integrantes da intelectualidade polonesa - professores, artistas, pesquisadores, historiadores, etc - presos sob a acusação de serem sabotadores, espiões, latifundiários, donos de fábricas, advogados, funcionários públicos perigosos e padres. . 💻 Decision to commence investigation into Katyn Massacre.

It has an area of 835,100 km², it was one and a half times the size of the German Empire in Europe at the time. It had a population of around 2,600 Germans. On September 13th, 1914, during the Great War, German SW Africa was invaded by the military forces of the British Empire in the form of South African and British forces. After the war in November 1918, its administration was taken over by the Union of South Africa (British Empire) and the territory became SW Africa under a League of Nations mandate. It became independent Namibia in 1990. -------------------------------------------- The NS Elephant (S11) (Chinese Haixun 01 patrol vessel) has a large flight deck but no hangar. It has bunks for an additional 150 passengers. On its deck it may carry 6-by-12-foot (1.8 m × 3.7 m) containers, totalling 24 tonnes or six APCs of 12 tonnes each. The superstructure has a fire control radar mounted for targeting the main 37 mm gun. The two twin 14.5 mm guns are manually operated. It carries two large lifeboats amidships. There is a crane on the port side and a smaller launch boat on the starboard side. She is powered by two V16 diesel engines and has three generators and an emergency power generator plus a bow thruster. -------------------------------------------- Construction of this ship began in mid-2011 at the Wuhan Shipyard. Named for the African elephant, she was accepted by the Namibian Navy on July 3rd, 2012 after sea trials were completed. The ship is operational, for general Economic Zone Patrol. Is also used to train junior sailors and officers. It participates in training operations with the marines with marine amphibious operations being launched from the ship. — #WarshipsofAfrica

It greatly increased resentment towards the Germans. -jp #occupationofparis#germanoccupation#occupiedparis#occupation#worldwartwo#ww2#history#ww2history#wwiihistory#wwii#onthisday#onthisdayinhistory#wwi#ww1#worldwarone#wwihistory#ww1history#historyjokes#historymemes

Medical VC 25 - George Allan Maling VC - http://www.vconline.org.uk/george-a-maling-vc/4587496416 On 25th September 1915 near Fauquissart, France he worked for over 24 hours collecting and treating in the open the wounded under heavy shell fire. At one point he was stunned by a blast nearby which killed his assistant and several patients but continued regardless. He was later covered in debris by a second blast. #vc#victoriacross#forvalour#medicalvcs#wwi#trenchwarfare

In preparation for my next book on the history of plastic surgery, I've been researching the extraordinary soldiers who were disfigured during WWI, and a surgeon named Harold Gillies, who worked tirelessly to reconstruct their faces. Here you see a before/after shot of a sailor severely burned in the Battle of Jutland - the greatest Naval battle of the First World War, and the biggest battleship action of all time. . In the early days of June 1916, naval casualties from the Battle of Jutland began pouring into the Cambridge Military Hospital in Aldershot, their faces blackened with hideous burns, as though they had been licked by the flames of hell. Gillies had never seen anything quite like it. Their burns had rendered them “hideously repulsive,” leaving them “well-nigh incapacitated” by their injuries. He watched in amazement as these sailors arrived at the Cambridge Military Hospital: “How a man can survive such an appalling burn is difficult to imagine, until one has met one of these survivors from fire, and realised the unquenchable optimism which carries them through almost anything.” . This image comes from Gillies's published case files. I am constantly humbled by these stories. This book is very intense (emotionally and otherwise). It's taking longer than I originally had anticipated, but I hope you will think it's worth the wait once it does go into production. I only hope I can do this epic tale justice. Thanks for your patience, and for your interest in this project. #WWI#haroldgillies#plasticsurgery#facialreconstruction#surgery#amwriting#WorldWarI#battleofjutland

Stonehenge in Maryhill, Washington. This was the first monument in the United States dedicated to the fallen soldiers of World War I. The artist, a pacifist, modeled it after Stonehenge in the United Kingdom, since the belief at the time was that the large stone structure was an alter for human sacrifices to the gods. The monument overlooks the Columbia River, with Mt Hood visible in the distance. Within the monument are the names of 14 Klickitat County men who died during the war. #stonehenge#maryhill#washington#worldwarone#wwi#klickitatcounty#columbiarivergorge#mthood#pnw#pacificnorthwest#maryhillwashington

113 років тому армія Російської імперії під командуванням Олексія Брусилова розпочала штурм Чернівців, і наступного дня вибила звідти австрійські війська. Австрійці говорили до того, що місто укріплене настільки, що його просто неможливо захопити 💥 #Спогадісором#Чернівці#історія#війна#WWI

I’m fine with someone being Gay, Bi, or any of the sort. But is it really fair that you all got a month of recognition while soldiers who bled their lives out and served their country only get a few days of the year to be recognized. It is truly a shame to me, it really is. . . . . . . . . #military#soldiers#veterans#gay#bi#pride#june#soldier#war#ptsd#servicemen#wwii#wwi#vietnamwar#koreanwar#gulfwar#waronterror#pridemonth#respect#reverence#mia#kia
