07. The disarmament of Helgoland Heligoland, the Green Island in the North Sea, a well-known seaside resort in the war is a waffenstarrender naval base in peace today one debris field. Now, the remains of the former fortifications shall be eliminated permanently by blasting.
A group of journalists from Europe and America, including German journalists and cameramen visit the island. Already the lowlands with the artificial port shows the traces of the attack, which destroyed Helgoland in the last days of the war. Barely a House still standing. And the surface looks like a crater landscape.
Also the lift from the lowlands to the Oberland is burnt out and destroyed. Even more, the Oberland with the settlement of Helgoland was hit.

01. Repairing the "Munich Kindl"
Recently the Munich "Kindl" on the City Halls's highest peak had unexpected visitors! Weather and war had damaged the Gothic ornaments of the tower: The "Kindl" himself was observed to stagger slightly when the wind was blowing. So one Sunday morning stepple-jacks climbed the tower and removed the loose ornaments which endangered passers-by. They discovered that some screws had been loosened. After a little repair work there was no objection against the Munich "Kindl" continuing as a famous landmark high over the roofs of the city ... a pleasant sight for the people of Munich, strangers, and the building authorities.
At the same time another landmark of Munich was recovered under the ruins of the former "Residence" (the Royal Palace): The Patrona Bavariae, the Patron Saj[...]t of Bavaria.
This model for all Bavarian Madonnas, together with other historical sculpture, was buried in 1942 under the "Kaiserstairs". Now the "Madonna with the Sickle," created in 1600 by Hans Krumper, has been recovered undamaged after removing 2000 cubic meters if rubble. When the Residence is rebuilt Patrona Bavariae will come back to her old place.
Teachers as pupils - another sign of our times. Kant University in Brunswick is an important school for teachers. The students here receive instruction as teachers for primary schools. Their education takes from 2 to 3 years. There are brief courses for those who have to refresh their knowledge of their subject. 15.000 teachers are wanted in the British Zone alone, and the average age of the teachers employed at present is about 50 years. After passing the finishing examinations each young teacher is given an assignment by the School Board.
Trade is also short of workers. Many skilled occupations have vacancies, while others on the centrary are overcrowded. To solve this problem the Working Office in Frankfurt established re-education courses under the direction of trained teachers. The building-trade needs young apprentices. In these courses the young applicant learns side by side with old handicraftsmen, and with P.O.W's who are seeking new professions. After re-education they will find good and useful jobs.
