was then an orthodox Stalinist (Stalinism). … The real power broker during the immediate postwar period was Ford himself, who established a small film empire of his own."'' For the next twenty years, Ford served as professor of the state-run National Film School in Łódź (Państwowa Wyższa Szkoła Filmowa). He is perhaps best remembered for directing the first postwar documentary ''Majdanek - cmentarzysko Europy'' (Majdanek – the Cemetery of Europe) and the feature film ''Knights of the Teutonic Order (Knights of the Teutonic Order (film))'' (1960), based on a novel of the same name (The Teutonic Knights (novel)) by Polish author Henryk Sienkiewicz.

Kastner's wife joined him in Budapest in July 1941. He tried to persuade József Fischer, who had lost his law practice, to join them but he refused, feeling responsible for the Jewish community in Kolozsvár. Komoly continued to introduce Kastner to key figures in the Budapest Zionist movement. One of them was Sam Springmann, who was bribing officials — in part with money from the Jewish Agency — to carry messages and food parcels into Łódź and other ghettos in Poland. It was Springmann who introduced Kastner to Joel Brand, a meeting that was to change both their lives. *'''Norway''': Stavanger is host to the annual Nuart Festival, one of Europe's leading events dedicated to promoting street art. *'''Poland''': Łódź in September 2011, under the patronage of Mayor Hanna Zdanowska, a permanent city exhibition was financed called Urban Forms Gallery. http: www.mymodernmet.com profiles blogs polish-city-embraces-street-art The exhibition included work from some of Poland's elite street artists as well as some more globally known artists. Since the 1990s street art has been prevalent in Poland, which is most likely related to the collapse of communism in 1989. Street art is largely, though not exclusively, inspired by the hip-hop music scene. It is mostly accepted by the public, with the authorities occasionally giving licence to artists to decorate public spots. Despite this, public property is still illegally targeted in some cases. Warsaw and Gdansk are among some of the other Polish cities with a vibrant street art culture. http: www.fatcap.com country poland.html http: polskistreetart.blogspot.com *'''Russia''': Moscow, in 2010 the ''New York Times'' reported that the city was increasingly becoming a stage for local and international graffiti artists.

Alice Pfeiffer, "Graffiti Art Earns New Respect in Moscow", ''New York Times'', October 13, 2010 In 1939 the Nazis initiated the annihilation process of the Jewish population. The most notable persons of the community, about 6,000, were sent to the Dachau (Dachau concentration camp) and Buchenwald concentration camps. The main concentration camp in Austria was the Mauthausen Concentration Camp (Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp), which was located next to the city Linz. Many other Jews were sent to the concentration camps in Theresienstadt and Łódź and from there to the Auschwitz concentration camp. In the summer of 1939 hundreds of factories and Jewish stores were shut down by the Austrian government. In October 1941 Jews were forbidden to exit the boundaries of Austria. The total number of Jews who managed to exit Austria is about 28,000. Part of the Vienna Jews was sent to the transit camp Nisko in Nazi occupied Poland. In the end of the winter of 1941, an additional 4,500 Jews were sent from Vienna to different concentration and extermination camps on the territories of Nazi occupied Poland (mainly to Izbica Kujawska and to other ghettos in the Lublin area). In June 1941, a direct delivery exited the city to the Sobibor extermination camp, which had around one thousand Jews. In the fall of 1942, the Nazis sent more Jews to the ghettos to the towns of the cities they occupied in the Soviet Union: Riga, Kaunas, Vilnius and Minsk. Those Jews were murdered by Nazi soldiers mainly by gunshots. right thumb 250px Liberation of the Mauthausen concentration camp (Image:KZ Mauthausen.jpg) by the American forces. birth_date

Already, such teen films as ''Rebel Without a Cause'', ''Earth vs. the Flying Saucers'', ''I Was a Teenage Werewolf'', and ''Rock Around the Clock'' had been huge successes. With $45,000 raised with the help of local businessmen, Rhoden Jr. hired Kansas City filmmaker Robert Altman to make the juvenile delinquency melodrama ''The Delinquents (The Delinquents (1957 film))'', which was sold to United Artists and released in 1957, grossing $1,000,000 and also firmly establishing Altman as a film director. *St. Paul (w:Saint Paul, Minnesota), Minnesota (w:Minnesota) *Kansas City Assembly (w:Kansas City Assembly) of Kansas City (w:Kansas City, Missouri), Missouri (w:Missouri) *Norfolk Assembly of Norfolk (w:Norfolk, Virginia), Virginia (w:Virginia) Still, Harlan was in attendance at Yankee Stadium (w:Yankee Stadium) during the team's Opening Day series this year.
