Why there will be no new building area in marktrodach after all

Why there will be no new building area in marktrodach after all

The result of a noise protection survey puts a spanner in the works for building applicants in marktrodach. The designation of the brownfield site in the former quarry area in kleinvichtach as building land is therefore off the table for the time being. Around 20 prospective home builders now have to embark on a new search to fulfill their dream of owning their own home.

As mayor norbert grabner explained, there was a lively demand for construction in his community. It was only in the recent past that the buhl III and IV areas were designated as building areas, developed and built on.

Industrial wasteland eliminated

The market is now planning to convert the former quarry land in marktrodach to residential use. A total of 20 building sites should be created there. The owner of the land wanted to invest the proceeds in a multi-family house that was also to be built on the site.

After stauffenberg’s assassination, the nazis sacked greifenstein castle

After stauffenberg's assassination, the nazis sacked greifenstein castle

In a few days there will be a round commemoration of a remarkable and historically significant event. 75 years ago, colonel claus schenk von stauffenberg was executed at the fuhrer headquarters, the "wolfsschanze", two bombs in his briefcase, with which he wanted to kill the dictator adolf hitler at a meeting. The assassination attempt failed and the subsequent riots also affected french-speaking switzerland.

The 20. July 1944 was a thursday, a day etched in the history books and in people’s minds: the last known attack (of some 40 suspected) on hitler. It failed, but in the eyes of the european public there was a small hope that not all germans were automatically nazis who despised humanity.

Conspirators executed

Hadn’t stauffenberg betrayed himself by flying to berlin and launching "unternehmen walkure"?, the overthrow of hitler’s dictatorship, he might never have been exposed. But hitler very quickly learned of the overthrow plan and was able to take immediate revenge. Still in the night of 20. July, the graf and other conspirators were executed in berlin. Several thousand people were gradually arrested, and about 200 more conspirators were court-martialed. They were sentenced to death by the famous judge roland freisler. A very painful time began for the von stauffenberg family. On 21. July the gestapo occupied the greifenstein castle near heiligenstadt. For three days, the state police interrogated all members of the family, the assassin’s nephew, otto philipp schenk von stauffenberg, recalled many years later. The castle was confiscated in july. According to the will of heinrich himmler, it was to be rounded off in august "and the clan destroyed".

Married for 70 years: 'above all, there is love'

Elmar wendenburg delicately reaches for the hand of his wife dorothea. They look deep into each other’s eyes. The two of them don’t have to say much on the bench in their garden at home: after 70 years of marriage, they know about each other: "above all, there is love!", says the 93-year-old senior with a mischievous laugh and receives a nod of approval from his 94-year-old wife. "Love has kept us together for 70 years, through all the highs and lows," adds elmar wendenburg, adds elmar wendenburg.

On wednesday, the mentally active couple will celebrate the rare occasion of their gracious wedding anniversary in their house on the stephansberg – together with their daughters sylvia and isolde, four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. One or two guests of honor will drop by. Andreas stark, the head burgermeister, has also confirmed his attendance. It was important for the couple to celebrate the day of the catholic-church wedding: on 29. July 1950 they were married in the knight’s chapel at habfurt. They had gone to the registry office a day earlier.

Dancing close to each other

Elmar wendenburg, a native of habfurt, and the refugee girl dorothea nafe from wroclaw met on club bales. Dancing and chatting brought them closer together. The common future was sealed and also received the necessary rustzeug by the former breslau company of the parents-in-law of elmar wendenburg in habfurt again founded. "Iron merchant" this is simply the name of his profession, in which he moved the business to bamberg in 1953 and, in his own words, made it one of the leading specialist shops in northern bavaria.

shocking allegations of abuse in catholic us church

Sexual abuse up to and including rape and deliberate cover-ups: more than 300 catholic priests in the u.S. State of pennsylvania are alleged to have abused thousands of children over the past 70 years.

"Although the list of priests is long – we don’t think we got them all," said pennsylvania attorney general josh shapiro. The accusations cover six of the eight dioceses in pennsylvania.

Shapiro, who presented the results of the investigation so far in a nearly 900-page report on tuesday, assumes thousands of victims. He believes that many of them had not dared to report the abuse. About 1000 have been identified. "Priests raped little boys and girls, and the men of god who were responsible for them not only did nothing – they hid everything," the report says. "The church protected its institutions – no matter the cost."
