„Steine der Erinnerung“: Ein Projekt, das für die ermordeten jüdischen EinwohnerInnen gedacht. Die jüdische Kultur ist ein sehr wichtiger Teil von der Wiener Kultur. „Steinen der Erinnerung“ ist ein Projekt, das gesetzt wurde, um an die jüdischen Opfer des Holocausts zu gedenken. Der Weg der Erinnerung geht durch die Leopoldstadt, die traditionell ein Bezirk (2. Bezirk) ist. Dieses Projekt ist für die gesamte Leopoldstadt gedacht, weil die Leopoldstadt „Mazzesinsel“ hieß, in dem es ein blühendes jüdisches Leben vor der Machtergreifung der Nazis gab. Während des Zweiten Weltkriegs wurden 30.000 Menschen hier deportiert und ermordet. Durch diese Beispiele können Erinnerungen an das jüdische Leben und an die von den Nazis zerstörte Kultur im 2. Bezirk wach gehalten werden. Das Projekt begann im November 2006. Insgesamt hat es sieben Teile. Am 12. November 2006 wurde der 1. Teil des Weges der Erinnerung feierlich eröffnet. Am 11. November 2007 wurde der 2. Teil fortgesetzt. Am 18. Mai 2008 gab es eine sehr bewegende Eröffnung des 3. Teils des Weges… Am 13. Mai 2012 wurde der 7. Teil weiter eröffnet. 102 Stationen wurden auf dem Weg durch die Leopoldstadt innerhalb von vier Jahren gesetzt, und außerhalb des Weges gibt es 117 Stationen. Zahlreiche Anfragen sind für 2013 und 2014 bereits eingetroffen. Der Herr Bezirksvorsteher Gerhard Kubik und der Herr Kulturstadtrat Mailath-Pokorny stehen hinter dem Projekt. Das Projekt hat genug Geld. Es erhält Subventionen von der Kulturkommission Leopoldstadt, vom Nationalfonds und vom Zukunftsfonds. Patenschaften können für die persönlichen Steine übernommen werden. Die Bausteine finanzieren die Erklärungstafeln und Wegmarkierungen.
Eine Station auf dem Tempelgasse
Eine Station auf dem Tempelgasse „Steine der Erinnerung“ ist ein Projekt, das an die jüdischen Opfer, welche im 2. Bezirk lebten, mahnt. Es gibt eine Station auf der Praterstraße. Die Station hat den Namen von den Schauspielern der jüdischen Bühnen. Zum Beispiel war Else Traube eine Schauspielerin, die 1942 deportiert und 1943 in Auschwitz ermordet wurde. Es gibt eine Station, die die Namen von jüdischen Kindern hat. Beispielsweise war Bella Stepper ein Kind, das 1942 nach Riga deportiert wurde, als sie 3 Jahre alt war.
Es wird durch das Projekt erzielt, dass möglichst viele Menschen in das Projekt eingebunden werden. Das Projekt gibt den Ermordeten wieder einen Platz in ihrem Heimatbezirk. So sind sie und ihr Schicksal nicht vergessen. Es hilft auch der Familie von den Ermodeten Ruhe zu finden. Das Projekt leistet Bewusstseinsarbeit für die Menschen, die vorübergehen, regt sie zum Nachdenken und auch zur Auseinandersetzung mit der Vergangenheit an.
Am 11. November 2007 wurde der 2. Teil des Weges der Erinnerung an Platz des ehemaligen Leopoldstädter Tempels eröffnet. Irma Schwager hielte eine berührende Rede als eine der Angehörigen. Sie wünscht sich, dass die Steine der Erinnerung dazu beitragen, die Achtung der Menschenwürde und das friedliche Zusammenleben der Menschen zu fördern und sich immer mehr durchsetzen können. Das ist auch ein Zweck des Projekts. Alle Menschen sollen hoffen, dass niemals mehr, nirgendwo in der Welt, keinem Menschen, keiner Gruppe so ein Leid widerfahren wird.…...

German Costing

...Volkswagen is an automobile company that uses the German-based costing system. It was founded in 1937 and is the biggest German automaker in the world, as well as the second biggest automaker in the world. The annual financial statements of Volkswagen AG have been prepared in accordance with the provisions of the Handelsgesetzbuch (HGB – German Commercial Code). The main function of costing systems is help companies determine the cost of a product related to the revenue it generates. Two of the more common costing systems used in business are traditional costing and activity-based costing. Traditional costing assigns manufacturing overhead based on the volume of a cost driver, such as the amount of direct labor hours needed to produce an item. A cost driver is a factor that causes cost to incur, such as machine hours, direct labor hours and direct material hours. Activity-based costing allocates the costs of manufacturing a product according to the activities needed to produce the item. Activity-based costing provides a more accurate view of product cost, but companies typically use it as a supplemental costing system. The allocation bases used in activity-based costing differ from those used in traditional costing. Activity-based costing determines every activity associated with producing an item and allocates a cost to the activity. The cost assigned to the activity is then assigned to products that require the activity for production. On the other hand,......

German Wars

...How far does the role of individuals explain the outbreak of the German Wars of Unification? The German Wars of Unification can be blamed on a myriad of reasons however the pragmatism of Otto Von Bismarck often allowed him to take advantage and shape the course of German history. Conversely it would be remiss to state that Bismarck was solely responsible for the German Wars of Unification, nationalist elements as well as growing calls for liberalism all spurred the way for the beginning of a German state. Compounding this was the economic prosperity of Prussia, as Prussia grew economically stronger it diminished Austria’s sphere of influence in the region. This would also spur calls for greater German unity whilst isolating Austria. Prussian ambition can be first seen to rival Austria with the creation of the Zollverein. Prussia in 1818 created a law to integrate Prussian customs systems onto neighbouring small states, over the next fifteen years through a complex mixture of threats and concessions the Prussians managed to create a concrete policy that would lay the foundations for the Zollverein. In 1833 the Zollverein was created and most importantly Austria was firmly excluded. The importance of this is summed up in Metternich’s quote “a smaller rival confederation..which all too quickly will become accustomed to following its own objectives with its own means”. Metternich’s fears would eventually become a reality, this is reiterated by the historian Treitschke...

German Accounting

...German Accounting Introduction We are on the precipice of a fundamental globalisation step. The important and continued globalisation of investment has led to the development of internationally applicable standards and codes of practice. The international demand for standardised regulatory systems and processes has many benefits; however countries have been largely unwilling to adopt the international standards and codes for various reasons. (Mansfield, 2004) This report will focus on Germany and its current rate of adoption of the international accounting practices, whilst observing their history and cultural influences that have impacted on their current practices today. We have chosen Volkswagen to demonstrate Germany’s current standards and practice. A history of German accounting The Franciscan monk Luca Pacioli (1445 - 1514) published the first book on double entry bookkeeping (DEB) in 1494. (Derks, 2008, p. 205). German economic historian Werner Sombart (1863 - 1941) said that DEB was ‘one of the most beautiful discoveries of the human spirit’ (Funnell, 2001, p. 55). German accounting has been dominated by a series of competing theories of accounting. (Kupper, 2005, p. 346) The French Ordonnance de Commerce of 1673 and the 1807 Code de Commerce can be regarded as the roots of accounting principles and regulations in Germany. The first General German Commercial Code, enacted in 1861, has much in common in terms of accounting with its French counterpart. The...

German Expressionism

...German Expressionism ‘The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari’ is a film from the 1920’s and was the most influential and significant film that belongs to the German expressionism film movement. German Expressionism, as it name shows, highlights the expressions of the internal opinions, beliefs, and feelings via the use of artistic, stylistic materials and fundamentals. It had a main goal to advance life, especially, change. Therefore, it may be considered an evolution revealing German civilization through these times of alteration or change. Due to the loss of the German’s in WWI and its consequences, the movement’s plot was about madness, insanity, and poverty. It’s not just a story telling but it had communal, civilizing, and political features. Expressionist first film was ‘The Student of Prague’ (1913), then comes the first vampire movie in 1916 ‘ Nache des Gravens’ (Night of Horror), ‘The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari’ in 1920, and ‘The Golen’ (how we came into the world)… All these films have their special style, the style that specialize the German Expressionism movement. It’s characterized by relying heavily on the story and design, mise-en-scene, with the weird ambiance and work of art but lightly on editing. According to the shooting, the camera moves slightly with unpredictable camera’s position. As for the illumination, we see harsh distinction of light and shadows for diverse effects, known for Chiaroscuro lightning, symbolizing the occurrence of gloomy phases in human......

...must move the instrument in the opposite direction from the desired target on the monitor to interact with the site of interest.” (Surg) Surg explains that with this, hand-eye coordination is then compromised with this limitation. The desire to overcome these limitations is what drives the motivation to develop surgical robotics, to expand the benefits of minimally invasive surgery. In most countries many of the current and projected technological advancements in surgical care often come with deep rooted legal or virtuous implications. Some of these repercussions may be perceived as advantageous, while the effects of others may be more open to debate. In Germany the legal implications are none because of the Social Medicine Platform, Germans cannot sue their health care system. Other countries, such as Canada view this technology as any other surgical procedure, thereby the “legal basis for professional liability remains exactly the same, and litigation with the use of robotic surgery may be complex” (ANGIOL 2010). In cases involving a liability, not only are the physicians and hospitals liable but also the manufacturer of the robotic technology. Ethical issues surrounding robotic surgery would include maintenance, safety of equipment and confidentiality. With the quick introduction of ground-breaking technologies in the surgical circle, such as computer-enhanced robotic assisted surgery, the challenging complications in various aspects, including medical, legal......

...Matt Broach Heidewald C271 1 May 2014 Top 3 Ideas from German MBA Paper As a Kelley student, it is important to be aware of not only business in the United States, but also business all over the world. For this reason I was very excited to see that we as a class would have the opportunity to speak with a set of actual international students who know how business is done internationally, specifically in Germany. Of all of the interesting information I learned from the Q and A session, I believe that the most valuable would be Germany’s directness, the value of honesty, and the fact that it can often be much harder to break the ice with Germans. The first tip that I would try to convey to a student interested in doing business in Germany would be that the German people are very direct. The MBA students gave an example of an interaction between a student and a professor. If a student were to be asked a question in class that they didn’t know in America, he said that the student would likely try to “bullshit” his way out of it (Bruggemann, Spindler). This differs vastly in Germany due to their directness. Rather than try to talk themselves out of the question, they would be direct with their professor and admit that they did not know the answer. This type of distinction would be extremely helpful to an American traveling to Germany. Secondly, it is important to note that Germans value honesty. “Germans do not like surprises. Sudden changes in business......

...about how they are feeling since arriving but then realize that the ticket guy is not really interested in a long answer, he is just waiting to sell them tickets. This is interesting because we have been taught that in Germany “How are you?” is a question that is really asking for a genuine answer, good or bad, and in the US the expected answer is a short “good” or “good, how are you?” in most casual situations. In the US, “how are you” is a polite phrase to say to strangers that adds some warmth to a greeting without prying for detail that might make anyone uncomfortable. Americans are supposedly more open to conversation and making conversation with strangers than they may be in Germany. Therefore, it is interesting that the East Germans in the movie are comfortable to share so much information so readily with a stranger in New York. I now wonder if people in Germany only ask, “How are you?” to close friends and not really to casual acquaintances in order to avoid sharing or hearing too much information? Although this American cultural difference is proven to be true in many casual situations, I find this situation especially true in a city like New York and less true in smaller towns like Houghton. For example, I’m always surprised when I meet someone who is from Europe that has only visited the US once and did not enjoy the experience based on the ‘cold feeling’ they get from the people in New York. While it is never pleasant to feel this, New York is a large......

German Copyright

...Allison Anders 12/6/2010 German Copyright The Anglo-American Copyright is a set of exclusive rights granted by the law to the author or creator of an original work, including the right to copy, distribute and adapt the work, except that it does not protect ideas, only their expression or fixation. Copyright laws are partially standardized through international and regional agreements such as the Bern Convention, the World Intellectual Property Organization, and the European copyright directives such as the Rome Convention for the Protection of Performers, Producers of Phonograms and Broadcasting Organizations. Although there are consistencies among nations' copyright laws the latter one emphasizes the recognitions of moral rights of creators, such as the right to be credited for the work. In 1902 a law in Germany adapted which said that the approval of each author is required for every public performance of the musical work. The Society for Musical Performing and Mechanical Reproduction Rights (GEMA) was established as a collecting society representing the rights of the copyright of those composers, lyricists and publishers of musical works that are organized as a member in it. The task given to the Gema contains protection of intellectual property rights of music creators and the representation of their interests to get properly remunerated for the use of Truckenbrod, Baetcher 2 their works.

German Healthcare

...Global Environment of Business Germany Healthcare Profile Healthcare in Germany has been relatively constant throughout history. The growth of the healthcare to what it is today can be found from the 19th century. During this time industry and an up growth of population came to Germany and this also was linked to the founding of the German National Union. This this growth of organized labor it began to be apparent that a form of health care needed to be found to keep the health of the workers. The Bismark model was founded shortly after. This model used an insurance program and those that provided the insurance were referred to as “sickness funds.” The money for this program was taken from the payroll. This was a national coverage so the insurance companies did not profit. In 1883, there was an amendment to the Bismark model. This model was regulated by a man who was known for his military tactics and originally he wanted a national, central office for the healthcare his model was rejected and a more regional program was established to allow smaller pockets of control. There was final change to the model occurred in three phases through the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. This brought the model to be a nonprofit and self-governing. Originally the board was made up of more labor and only a few people from business were on the seat for representation. This transitioned to 1920’s when there was an equal board seats.

German Expressionism

...ART WORLD Art House: An Introduction to German Expressionist Films Alissa Darsa, Thursday, December 26, 2013 Robert Wiene, Stills for The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (three works) (1919). Gelatin silver print, sold at Christie's New York. Welcome to the first article in Art House, a series detailing the evolution of art house films, and their impact on the relationship between art and cinema. The term art house refers to films that are artistic or experimental in nature, and are generally not part of the commercial mainstream. It is interesting to note that unlike many other forms of avant-garde, filmic avant-garde does not typically generate the profits earned by its musical, visual, and literary counterparts. Most artists who have produced avant-garde films have had to rely on other artistic media as a source of income, including Andy Warhol (American, 1928–1987).1 However, there are several films that have crossed over into the realm of mainstream cinema, and have been both financially successful as well as stylistically influential. This article focuses on German Expressionism, one of the earliest artistic genres to influence filmmaking, and one that arguably paved the way for many other avant-garde styles and techniques. Walter Reimann & Hermann Warm, Le docteur à la foire (from The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) (1919). Sold at Binoche Renaud-Giquello & Associés.
