Radom

Massacre in Ciepielów. After graduating from trade schools in Lubań and Radom, Tomasz Arciszewski moved to Sosnowiec, an ever-growing centre of heavy industry of the region of Zagłębie. There in 1894 he started working as a factory worker in a steel foundry. In 1896 he joined the Polish Socialist Party (PPS) and soon afterwards took part in a strike (Strike action), for which he was dismissed. History Development of the RAK dates back to the late 1950s when the concept was first proposed at the Warsaw University of Technology in response to a requirement for a light hand-held defensive weapon for rear-echelon soldiers such as gun crews and vehicle drivers. After the death of the chief designer Piotr Wilniewczyc in 1960, the submachine gun’s development was assumed and completed by the state-operated Łucznik Arms Factory in the city of Radom, where it was produced until 1974. After close examination, the PM-63 was accepted into service with the People's Army of Poland and police in 1965 as the ''9 mm pistolet maszynowy wz. 1963'' ("9 mm submachine gun model 1963"). Small numbers of the weapon were exported to several Arab countries, Vietnam and the former East Germany. A slightly modified, unlicensed version of the PM-63 was produced by the People’s Republic of China as the '''Type 82''', who sold the weapon to politically allied nations in Asia. Woźniak, Ryszard.

His parents, Wolf and Yetta (Kitty) Weintrop were Polish (Poland) Jews who were married in the city of Radom, Poland, and fled to Łódź on their wedding day to avoid a pogrom. Wolf and Yetta Weintrop intended to escape to the "New World" from Eastern Europe - they paid for a ticket to New York (New York City) and a dishonest ticket agent gave them a ticket to London. In London, Wolf learned to be a shoe and bootmaker, and earned extra money singing as a part-time cantor (cantor (church)) (Hazzan) and by singing in pubs on Saturday nights. Wolf and Yetta Weintrop had ten children all born in London. At the time of the 1881 UK Census, Wolf "Wienkopf" and family lived in Brick Lane and by the 1891 UK Census, the "Wientrob" family had moved on to 12 Hanbury Street, Spitalfields.

Encyklopedia najnowszej broni palnej - tom 4 R-Z. Bellona. 2002. pp11. Personal biography His mother Ilse Strehlke was a niece of the violinist and composer Louis Spohr. His father was the neurologist Kurt E. Moser (July 21, 1895 – June 25, 1982), who was born to the merchant Max Maync (1870–1911) and Clara Moser (1860–1934). The latter descended from 17th century French Hugenot immigrants to Prussia. Jürgen Moser's parents lived in Königsberg, German empire and resettled in Stralsund, East Germany as a result of the second world war. Moser attended the Wilhelms-Gymnasium (Gymnasium (school)) in his hometown, a high school specializing in mathematics and natural sciences education, from which David Hilbert had graduated in 1880. His older brother Friedrich (Friedel) Moser (August 31, 1925 - January 14, 1945) served in the German army and died in Dodrowolsk, Russia. He married the biologist Dr. Gertrude C. Courant (Richard Courant's daughter, Carl Runge's granddaughter and grandniece of Emil DuBois-Reymond) on September 10, 1955 and took up permanent residence in New Rochelle, New York in 1960, commuting to work in New York City. In 1980 he moved to Switzerland, where he lived in Schwerzenbach near Zürich. He was a member of the Akademisches Orchester Zürich. He was survived by his younger brother, the photographic printer and processor Klaus T. Moser-Maync from New York, his wife, Gertrude Moser from Seattle, their daughters, the theater lighting designer Nina S. Moser from Seattle and the mathematician Lucy I. Moser-Jauslin from Dijon, and his stepson, the lawyer Richard D. Emery from New York City. Moser played the piano and the cello, performing chamber music since his childhood in the tradition of a musical family, where his father played the violin and his mother the piano. He was a lifelong amateur astronomer and took up paragliding in 1988 during a visit at IMPA (Instituto Nacional de Matemática Pura e Aplicada) in Rio de Janeiro. Solyanka is also popular in the former German Democratic Republic (GDR or East Germany), where it is commonly found in restaurants and available in canned form in grocery stores. (The German (German language) transliteration is ''Soljanka''.) This practice stems from the era when Soviet (Soviet Union) troops were stationed in the GDR, and ''Soljanka'' was found on the menu at many East German restaurants. The '''Ernst Thälmann Pioneer Organisation''', consisting of the '''Young Pioneers''' and the '''Thälmann Pioneers''', was a youth organisation of schoolchildren aged 6 to 14, in East Germany. They were named after Ernst Thälmann, the former leader of the Communist Party of Germany who was murdered in Buchenwald concentration camp. thumb A paper recycling drive to fund the 1973 World Festival of Youth and Students (File:Bundesarchiv Bild 183-L1003-0014, Pioniere sammeln Altpapier für Weltfestspiele.jpg) in Berlin The pioneers took part in a range of activities including sports, ceremonies and performances, meetings and waste collection for different causes. In their uniforms, and with their children's enthusiasm, they were an attractive accompaniment to GDR (East Germany) anniversaries and festivals. In 1966, for example, a delegation of children from the Pioneers and the FDJ symbolically handed over a bunch of red carnations in honour of the SED (Socialist Unity Party of Germany)'s 20th anniversary. thumb 400px (File:2006-04-Stubnitz.jpg) The '''Motorschiff Stubnitz''' e.V., a registered non-profit (non-profit organization) association, is the operator of an 80m former freeze & transport vessel of the GDR (East Germany) high seas fishing fleet based in Rostock. Since 1993 it has been transformed into a mobile platform for music, cultural production, documentation and communication. Inside this listed historical monument, the former cargo holds are used as venues for live music, exhibitions (art exhibition), performances and media art. Artists and co-workers are lodged and fed on board. Kok reached her peak at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. She won the gold medal in the 200 meter butterfly race in a time of 2:24.7, beating the East German (East Germany) Helga Lindner by 0.1 seconds. The 100 meter butterfly race in that Olympic Games ended in disappointment for her, when she did not feel well beforehand, and finished in fourth place.. thumb 280px The baroque Town Hall. (Image:Coburg-Rathaus1.jpg) In 1920, two years after the abdication of the last duke, the locals voted to join Bavaria. Thus whilst the other Saxon-Thuringian principalities were later incorporated into the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) after World War II, Coburg became part of West Germany. As a result, the town spent the Cold War years lying right next to the Iron Curtain, surrounded by East German territory on three sides. Wagenknecht was born on July 16, 1969, in the East German (East Germany) city of Jena. European Parliament profile Her mother worked for a state-run art distributor. Her father, whom she never met, was Iranian (Iranian peoples). She was cared for primarily by her grandparents until 1976, when she and her mother moved to East Berlin. While in Berlin, she became a member of the Free German Youth (FDJ). She completed her Abitur exams (Abitur) in 1988 and joined the Socialist Unity Party (Socialist Unity Party of Germany) (SED) in early 1989. "Günter Gaus im Gespräch mit Sahra Wagenknecht" from Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (rbb), 11 February 2004. "Kurzbiographie" from www.sahra-wagenknecht.de (29 June 2007). Following the merger of the PDS and the WASG (Labour and Social Justice – The Electoral Alternative) that formed the Left Party (The Left (Germany)), Wagenknecht considered campaigning for the position of party vice-chair. However, party leaders such as Lothar Bisky and Gregor Gysi objected to the idea (primarily because of her perceived sympathies for the former German Democratic Republic (East Germany)). Following the controversy, she announced that she would not run for the post. Wagenknecht successfully contested a seat in the 2009 federal election (German federal election, 2009) in North Rhine-Westphalia. DIE LINKE.NRW (Party website), "(21 April 2009). Being in the Bundestag she became the left party's spokesperson for economic politics. The Nazi additions were repealed in East Germany in 1950, but homosexual relations between men remained a crime until 1968. West Germany kept the more repressive version of the law, legalizing male homosexual activity one year after East Germany, in 1969. The age of consent was equalized in East Germany through a 1987 court ruling, with West Germany following suit in 1989; it is now 14 years (16 18 in some circumstances) for female-female, male-male and female-male activity. The company was greatly affected by World War II. Steenbergen left Dresden in 1942, never to return, and the Ihagee factory was destroyed during the Allied bombing of Dresden in April 1945. The partitioning of Germany after the war left Dresden and Ihagee in the Soviet occupation zone, later East Germany. The Soviet Union quickly reestablished Ihagee, producing some Exakta and Exa cameras from the parts and machinery that had survived the bombing. The company was taken over by Pentacon, the maker of the successful Praktica camera, in 1951. New immigrants face prejudices and problems integrating with the native population and often segment into separate communities. Higher rates of delinquency and more general integration problems persist amongst some migrant groups. Notwithstanding police operations focusing on this matter, migrants may still be subject to racist assaults mainly in rural areas or small towns in former East Germany. Such problems are not unique to Germany and the incidence of the more severe of these problems are relatively rare in perspective. Some German states (which are responsible for education affairs) have banned Muslim teachers from wearing headscarves (headscarf) in class, generally by prohibiting the use of all religious symbols by teachers; this issue is being intensively discussed in the general public. Unlike France, German states have not extended this ban to pupils. German political backlash due to integration with Europe is resulting in new laws seeking to equalize the pay of eastern European workers (such as those from Poland and the Czech Republic) in an effort to curb the advantages to their hire. Alleged and real competition of "cheap" labour force mainly from Eastern Europe is an issue which right and far-right political groups - in some areas with some success - try to use to promote nationalist approaches in immigration policy. However, during the last decades, no far-right movement has been able to gain enough support to win seats in federal elections or to play any important role in politics on the federal level. Geography Neighbour states were: West Germany and East Germany, People's Republic of Poland, Soviet Union, People's Republic of Hungary, and Austria.

. 24 and vz. 26 (Sa vz. 23) submachine guns. The vz. 58 externally resembles the Soviet (Soviet Union) AK-47 but is internally a substantially different design based on a short-stroke gas piston (Gas-operated reloading), which shares no parts with the Kalashnikov design. http: findarticles.com p articles mi_m0BQY is_3_55 ai_n31326578 History Development of the weapon began in 1956; leading the project was chief engineer Jiří Čermák assigned to the Konstrukta Brno facility in the city of Brno. The Soviet Union had begun insisting that the Warsaw Pact forces standardization on a common ammunition. As a result, the prototype, known as the '''"Koště"''' ("broom"), was designed to chamber the intermediate Soviet 7.62×39mm M43 (7.62×39mm) cartridge, rather than the Czech 7.62×45mm vz. 52 round, used in both the earlier vz. 52 rifle and the vz. 52 (vz. 52 (machine gun)) light machine gun.

Retrieved January 26, 2007, from http: www.thai-tour.com thai-tour North Petchabun main.htm History Development of the MG 30 took place under the direction of Louis Stange at Rheinmetall's Sömmerda office. However actual production of machine guns was prohibited in Germany under the Versailles Treaty, and the design was rejected by the Reichswehr. Rheinmetall then turned to other companies and licensed the design to Solothurn in Switzerland and Steyr-Daimler-Puch in Austria. Production soon followed, entering the armed forces of both countries as the '''Solothurn S2-100''' and '''''Maschinengewehr'' Solothurn 1930''', or MG 30, respectively. 2000-3000 were also purchased by Hungary, where it was known as the '''Solothurn 31.M Golyoszoro'''. They lived in Oxford, England until they moved their residence to Switzerland in 2006. Alonso owned a house in Mont-sur-Rolle, near Lake Geneva from 2006 to 2010, and in February 2010 he moved house to Lugano in order to be closer to his new Formula One employer Ferrari. It is highly common for Formula One stars to take up residence in Switzerland to reduce their tax bills (Tax haven). In the winter of 2010–11, Alonso moved back to Oviedo in order to be closer to friends and family, costing him an estimated £50 million in tax. commons:Confoederatio Helvetica
