version The "short version", whose appearance shortly precedes the introduction in the 1460s of block book (Woodblock printing)s (books printed from carved blocks of wood, both text and images on the same block), first dates to around 1450, from the Netherlands. It is mostly an adaptation of the second chapter of the "long version", and contains eleven woodcut pictures. The first ten woodcuts are divided into 5 pairs, with each set showing a picture of the devil (Christian teaching about the Devil) presenting one of the 5 temptations, and the second picture showing the proper remedy for that temptation. The last woodcut shows the dying man, presumably having successfully navigated the maze of temptations, being accepted into heaven, and the devils going back to hell (Hell in Christian beliefs) in confusion. thumb Sirandou.net cybercafe IICD Kita, Mali (File:Sirandou.net cybercafe IICD Kita, Mali.jpg) The '''International Institute for Communication and Development''' (IICD) is a non-profit foundation (foundation (charity)) established by the Ministry for Development Cooperation of the Netherlands in 1996.

In the case of Tongeren this traditional claim was supported by excavations in the 1980s, when under the medieval church remains of a 4th century church were identified. Other historic churches in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany were dedicated to the saint, e.g. the Basilica of Saint Servatius in Maastricht, the Abbey of Saint Servatius (Grimbergen Abbey) in Grimbergen, and the collegiate church of Saint Servatius in Quedlinburg Beets''' (13 September 1814 – 13 March 1903) was a Netherlands Dutch theologian, writer and poet.

Beetle production was increasing beyond the capacity of highway trucks (Semi-trailer truck) (autocarriers). Volkswagen engineers worked with German railroads to design a railroad car that was basically an extra long version of a vehicle hauling trailer. The design they came up with was able to carry 10 vehicles on one car. VW's two-level flatcar design effectively became the first autorack. '''Neundorf (bei Schleiz)''' is a Thuringian (Germany) municipality in the district of Saale-Orla. '''Rheinstetten''' is a (German (Germany)) town in the district of Karlsruhe in Baden-Württemberg.

'''Sarband''' is a German (Germany) early music ensemble with musicians from 7 nations, focusing on musical connections between Orient & Occident; Jewish, Christian & Muslim music.

Reformation (1992-present) After a decade of inactivity, Sniff 'n' The Tears were unexpectedly revived in 1992, after the use of "Driver's Seat" in a European advertising campaign pushed the 13-year old recording to the very top of the Dutch (Netherlands) charts (record chart) in mid-1991. Roberts took the opportunity to assemble a new version of Sniff 'n' the Tears, and took them out on the road in the Netherlands and Germany. This version of the band consisted of Roberts and Davidson, with new recruits Jeremy Meek (bass), Steve Jackson (drums) and Andy Giddings (Andrew Giddings) (keyboards). This line-up also cut a new studio album in 1992, ''No Damage Done'', which was the first new Sniff 'n' the Tears release in a decade. Record history In 1977 the yacht ''Merlin,'' designed by Bill Lee (Bill Lee (yacht designer)), set an elapsed time record of 8 days, 11 hours, 1 minute. This record would stand for 20 years. Ending ''Merlin's'' record, in the 1997 race a new monohull elapsed time record of 7 days, 11 hours, 41 minutes, and 27 seconds was set by Roy E. Disney's ''Pyewacket (Pyewacket (yacht))'', a 73 foot maxi ultralight designed by Reichel Pugh. The record fell once again in 2005, with Hasso Plattner's ''Morning Glory'', a maxZ86 from Germany. ''Morning Glory'' was the scratch boat when it led a five-boat assault on the record for monohulls. She finished the race in 6 days, 16 hours, 4 minutes, and 11 seconds to win "the Barn Door" trophy, a slab of carved koa wood traditionally awarded to the monohull with the fastest elapsed time. Kluge was born in Cologne, Germany, and died in Freiburg.

In Old Norse sources, Hunaland often has a mythological character and can shift between different parts of Europe, depending on what kind of skills the hero is to show. It is separated from other countries by the forest Mirkwood, but one source may locate it up in the north at Bjarmaland, another source says that it borders on Reidgotaland, a third source places it in parts of Germany and other sources place it on either side of the Gulf of Bothnia down to Gästrikland, in Sweden. Villeneuve continued his run of consecutive pole positions in San Marino (1997 San Marino Grand Prix). Villeneuve's German (Germany) team-mate, Frentzen (Heinz-Harald Frentzen), won his first and only, Grand Prix for Williams after he finished just over a second ahead of Michael Schumacher, with Eddie Irvine coming third. In the early 1960s Kircher toured Germany doing club gigs as the drummer for The Burnettes, a band featuring Neil Landon as singer and Noel Redding playing guitar. His earliest documented recordings are with Noel Redding, who later played bass (bass guitar) with Jimi Hendrix. More session work followed, before Kircher was recruited in April 1967 to join Honeybus, who, although often written off as one-hit wonders, produced a fine body of work, which culminated in a critically acclaimed 1970 album, ''Story'', released after the eventual dissolution of the band. thumb Prinzhorn's birthplace in Hemer (Image:Hemer-Prinzhornhaus1-Bubo.JPG) '''Hans Prinzhorn''' (June 6, 1886 - June 14, 1933) was a German (Germany) psychiatrist and art historian (Art history). '''Ernst Ludwig Kirchner''' (6 May 1880 – 15 June 1938) was a German (Germany) expressionist (Expressionism) painter (Painting) and printmaker and one of the founders of the artists group Die Brücke or "The Bridge", a key group leading to the foundation of Expressionism in 20th century art. He volunteered for army service in the First World War, but soon suffered a breakdown and was discharged. In 1933, his work was branded as "degenerate (Degenerate art)" by the Nazis (Nazism) and in 1937 over 600 of his works were sold or destroyed. In 1938 he committed suicide. In April 1941 British (United Kingdom) and Indian troops (British Indian Army) had been deployed to Iraq from India under the command of General Sir Edward Quinan to protect British interests, in particular oil concessions, after a coup d'etat had brought to power a government sympathetic to the Axis powers. The force was known as Iraqforce and was engaged in the Anglo-Iraqi War which took place in April and May Iraqi rebellion and took part in the defeat of the Vichy forces in the subsequent Syria-Lebanon campaign. Later in 1941, the force took part in the Anglo-Soviet invasion of Iran to prevent the Axis elements (Axis Powers) from entering Persia, and preventing the possibility of the Germans (Germany) gaining control of the Iraqi and Persian (Iran) oil fields. Following this Iraqforce was renamed Paiforce (Persia and Iraq force). The singer had never been careful with money and the increasing pressure on him to provide for his young family caused even more tension between him and the rest of Cold Chisel. Despite being hugely successful in Australia, the group had still not been able to crack the market internationally and a disastrous tour of the United States in 1981 pulled them even further apart. While the 1982 album ''Circus Animals'' provided Cold Chisel with its second consecutive No. 1 album, Barnes returned from the band's German (Germany) tour in 1983 virtually broke. He asked for a $10,000 advance from the band's management but was refused, as the terms of the group's contract meant that if one member was given such a sum, the rest of them were entitled to the same amount. Howlspace - Jimmy Barnes At a meeting in August, it was decided that Cold Chisel should split up. The group had already begun to fragment, with Ray Arnott having replaced Steve Prestwich earlier in the year. Sessions for the final album were spread across different studios as various members refused to work together but at the end of the year ''The Last Stand'' farewell tour (with Prestwich back in the band) became the highest-grossing concert series by an Australian band ever. The group's final performance was in Sydney on 12 December 1983, reportedly precisely ten years after its original formation. The resultant film of that show remains the best-selling live concert film of any Australian band. He went to Hamburg in Germany because of his admiration of German literature (he learned the language in prison) especially the romantics as Novalis and Friedrich Hölderlin and worked there as journalist traveling widely in Latin America and Africa. thumb left Post-1983 Gemini ZZ-R (File:GEMINI(PF60).jpg) In Europe, the 1976 Gemini was equipped with a 1.3-liter engine known as the 1G13C, which was adopted by Opel in Germany for their Opel Kadett.
