Watercolor (21 x 25 inches) by Hans Christoph, one of the “artworks” that poor,  persecuted Jews are fighting to get their hands on. Called German Expressionism, how is this different from ordinary cartoons or caricatures that thousands of run-of-mill artists can do?

More of the art in the Cornelius Gurlitt collection has been put online, while a task-force, under Uwe Hartmann, has been set up to investigate the provenance of each one. Organized jewry is howling in protest because this could take a long time, and could prove much of their tale of “Nazi theft from Jews” to be wrong.  Cornelius will immediately get back over 300 of the artworks as rightly belonging to him, bringing more criticism from jews.

News from the National-Socialist Underground Trial in Munich: Defense attorneys file a complaint that they are not receiving the required amount of euros they are entitled to. Uwe Böhnhardt‘s mother, Brigitte, testifies for two days in a way that displeases the court – she makes excuses for her son, is not remorseful toward the Turks, and thanks Beate Zschäpe for her kindness. She is a bad woman and parent!

Mark Weber is appearing on WN radio programs treated as a great asset to “our cause.” His large role in the destruction of the once-vibrant Institute for Historical Review is forgotten or unknown by younger activists whose world-view only reaches back to the year 2000 or so. Carolyn briefly reviews Mark’s undistinguished career and asks: Do we forgive betrayers and hold them once again in high esteem in our ranks? Should we celebrate weakness?
