“Operation Last Chance” was launched on Tuesday and offers the German public a grand total of 25,000 euro ($33,000) for any information pertaining to surviving suspects complicit in World War II hate crimes.
There were far more Nazi “camps” than anyone had realized, according to recent research, some 42,500 of them, including not just “concentration camps,” but centers for euthanasia, forced abortions, forced prostitution, and other components of Hitler’s eugenics machine.
From The Holocaust Just Got More Shocking – NYTimes.com:
The researchers have cataloged some 42,500 Nazi ghettos and camps throughout Europe, spanning German-controlled areas from France to Russia and Germany itself, during Hitler’s reign of brutality from 1933 to 1945.
The figure is so staggering that even fellow Holocaust scholars had to make sure they had heard it correctly when the lead researchers previewed their findings at an academic forum in late January at the German Historical Institute in Washington.
“The numbers are so much higher than what we originally thought,” Hartmut Berghoff, director of the institute, said in an interview after learning of the new data.
“We knew before how horrible life in the camps and ghettos was,” he said, “but the numbers are unbelievable.”
The documented camps include not only “killing centers” but also thousands of forced labor camps, where prisoners manufactured war supplies; prisoner-of-war camps; sites euphemistically named “care” centers, where pregnant women were forced to have abortions or their babies were killed after birth; and brothels, where women were coerced into having sex with German military personnel.
Australian Gold Rush was a period of significant migration of workers, both more locally and from overseas, to areas which had discoveries of gold deposits. There were a number of gold finds in Australia prior to 1851, but it is only the gold found from 1851 onwards which created gold rushes. This is mainly because, prior to 1851, the colonial government of New South Wales (Victoria did not become a separate colony until 1 July 1851, and Tasmania did not become a separate colony until 1856) had suppressed news of gold finds which it believed would reduce the workforce and destabilise the economy. It was only after the Californian Gold Rush, which began in 1848, caused gold prospectors to move from Australia to the United States that the New South Wales government rethought its position, sought approval of the Colonial Office in England to allow the exploitation of the mineral resources and also offered rewards for payable gold to be found.discovery of gold in payable quantities was an epoch-making event in Australian history, for as one writer aptly phrases it, this event "precipitated Australia into nationhood." A reference to the population figures prior and subsequent to the year 1851 amply demonstrates this fact. Thus on 3lst December, 1841, the population of the Commonwealth was only 220,968; at the end of 1851 it was still under half a million, viz., 437,665, while by the end of 1861 the had reached 1,168,149 persons, that is, the population had quintupled itself in twenty years.
The first gold rush in Australia began in May 1851 after prospector Edward Hargraves claimed the discovery of payable gold near Bathurst, New South Wales at a site he called Ophir. Hargraves was offered a reward by both the Colony of New South Wales and the Colony of Victoria. Before the end of the year the gold rush had spread to many other parts of the state where gold had been found, not just to the west, but also to the south and north of Sydney. In July 1851 Victoria's first gold rush began on the Clunes goldfield. In August the gold rush had spread to include the goldfield at Buninyong (today a suburb of Ballarat) 45 km (28m) away and, by early September 1851, to the nearby goldfield at Ballarat (then also known as Yuille's Diggings), followed in early September to the goldfield at Castlemaine (then known as Forest Creek and the Mount Alexander Goldfield) and the goldfield at Bendigo (then known as Bendigo Creek) in November 1851. Gold, just as in New South Wales, was also found in many other parts of the state. The Victorian Gold Discovery Committee wrote in 1854:
The gold rushes caused large influxes of prospectors from overseas resulting in mass international immigration. Australia's total population more than tripled from 430,000 in 1851 to 1.7 million in 1871. Australia first became multi-cultural during the gold rush period. Between 1852 and 1860, 290,000 people migrated to Victoria from the British Isles, 15,000 came from other European countries, and 18,000 migrated from the United States. The non-European immigrants, however, were unwelcomed, especially the Chinese.

Muhammad Isma'il Salama is a blogger who also occasionally publishes articles in various Egyptian papers. In an article he published recently in the newspaper of the Egyptian party Al-Wafd, he wrote that the figure of six million Jewish Holocaust victims was exaggerated and contradicts testimony and historical documents regarding the number of Jews who lived in Europe at the time. According to Salama, the Jews wished to convince the world they were victims of the Nazis in order to extort millions of dollars in compensation from Germany.
Documentary evidence, such as newspaper articles and reports to parliamentary committees, suggest a range of rationales. Motivations evident include child protection, beliefs that given their catastrophic population decline after white contact that Aboriginal people would "die out", and a fear of miscegenation by full-blooded Aboriginal people. Terms such as "stolen" were used in the context of taking children from their families – the Hon P. McGarry, a member of the Parliament of New South Wales, objected to the Aborigines Protection Amending Act 1915 which then enabled the Aborigines' Protection Board to remove Aboriginal children from their parents without having to establish that they were in any way neglected or mistreated; McGarry described the policy as "steal[ing] the child away from its parents". In 1924, in the Adelaide Sun an article stated "The word 'stole' may sound a bit far-fetched but by the time we have told the story of the heart-broken Aboriginal mother we are sure the word will not be considered out of place."
Community leaders here say the key to reversing this college town's population decline—to 47,000 in 2011 from 80,000 in the 1950s—is to persuade students such as Olivia Yin to start local businesses after they graduate.
Ms. Yin remains unconvinced.
"It's not quite an ideal place for a start-up business," said Ms. Yin, who is from China and majors in financial economics and German studies at Binghamton University. She said the lack of a local start-up culture made it less likely students would put down roots to create new companies. "I just don't see my peers, classmates staying around."
The population of Broome County, near the New York and Pennsylvania border, dipped by 2,540 during 2011 and 2012—to 198,060, the biggest drop of any New York county in that period.
To combat the population loss and anchor an economic revival, Binghamton leaders are banking on small businesses and, increasingly, the 15,000-student Binghamton University. The potential for an energy industry based on the region's prime location atop the gas-rich rock formation known as the Marcellus Shale also has drawn enthusiasm—and stirred debate.
"We really need to focus on homegrown small businesses, incubated businesses that will create an identity in our city and be proud to be here," said Matthew Ryan, mayor of Binghamton, the largest city in Broome County.
