(b). Refugees created an exemplary work of the apparel industry apparel factory in Kappeln in the Schlei, a small fishing village in Schleswig-Holstein, energy and initiative. A borrowed sewing machine and three young girls formed the Foundation of the company, now 350 workers and employees busy. 90% of them are refugees from East Prussia and Pomerania. All began their work as unskilled forces. In their operations they take now after the apprentice, journeyman, and eventually also the master test.
Kappeln is solved the problem of refugees in exemplary fashion. The full-time factory is housed in a unused granary.
Most of the production is intended for miner families and refugees. Refugees for refugees - create self help in the best sense of the word.
c. nursery, Berlin the Apple doesn't fall far from the root - assuming that it ever falls. As good and plentiful fruit there only in those places where the trees are properly protected and maintained. So, the courses organised by many nurseries for small settlers are nowadays particularly well attended... like for example this in Berlin.
There they learn the proper treatment of their orchards, okulieren, graft and graft.
Dealing with a sharp garden knife is a special science in itself.
The gardening is more than a sideline or hobby today. And the small settlers courses ensure that the efforts of its participants wear also the right fruit.
[...]. Travel in this time: hotels, to create enough overnight opportunity, for the transient problem unchanged since World War II. Destruction and acquisition of spaces still available for other urgent purposes created the double problem: Hotel emergency - emergency hotels.
In the heavily damaged Regina Hotel at Munich one has transformed the former dressing rooms of the bath in hotel rooms. A sonorous name: Hotel Adlon in Berlin. Of this once world famous construction stopped only a complex, in which 50 rooms have been equipped with furniture saved, about two burned-out farms the guest comes to this last and the new beginning of the Adlon. Compensation for the loss of countless small and medium-sized establishments is even more important. There are sometimes just as practical and original solutions.
In Celle, a refugee couple from a completely bombed-out House created an emergency hotel. They were the own furniture available to create at least a homely space. Found another solution of the problem of the hotel in Cologne. Here, a former Rhine steamer to the hotel was rebuilt. The floating Inn has 20 beds, a kitchen and even a small dining room - almost like on an ocean liner.
The bunker hotels, which are purchased in many cities are a group for themselves. Bunker beneath the Earth or the Earth metre-thick concrete walls or paper dividers, as here in Frankfurt: everywhere it created space to stay. Hotels are important for boosting the economy.
Therefore the JEIA, the United export-import Agency of the Western zones, established now hotels in several cities for foreign business travelers. The famous Knight's Park Hotel in Bad Homburg was opened as first this so-called currency hotels.

Science as detective: perpetrators wanted!
Forensics and science are today closer than ever interconnected. The Kriminaltechnische Institute in Hamburg for example is one of the most advanced and successful scientific detective institutes in Germany.
Often it is just little things that lead to the discovery of a perpetrator. An important helper this is chemistry. By the fake food ration card until washing instructions deleted from, there is nothing, microscope or analysis can not reveal.
Here a bike number that was have been filed, comes after chemical treatment again to the fore. A collection of various burglar tools provides clues and comparisons. The special microscope proves that fact track and comparison are the same.
Documents at de reconnaissance of crime often play a decisive role.
Even the typewriter has its personal character. If there is a sheet with a few typed lines, the science does the rest. Using a punch card system, it determines the model of used typewriter, their origin, their year of manufacture and special features that facilitate their discovery.
A central firearms detection service clarifies all questions that have to do with guns and bullets. And all of the Criminalistic laboratory investigations are unwiderleglich!
On instead of the pipe of smoking Sherlock Holmes science now works as a detective, as soon as the alarm sounds: culprit wanted!

The impregnation provides also protection against the radiating heat.
The non-combustible door already often is used in America especially in hotel buildings.
The latest sensation of Paris is the Monkey family Delubac chimpanzees. She's so human that everyone laughs dead about it.
Habakkuk as reasonably only studied the menu, before giving his monkey sugar... Because the monkey love goes through the stomach.
No one can deny a glass in honor of.
Here comes Georgette, the youngest of the family. If the monkey is too comfortable, he goes dancing on the rope.
Chamber music with Schimpansens. The young folk dances, which others toot, blow and get into it, which keeps the drums. They amused themselves with dazzling speed.
It was a lovely evening. Good night!
05. Science as Detective:
Criminal police and science today work closely together. The Criminal Technical Establishment in Hamburg is one of the most progressive and successful scientific institutes of its kind in Germany. There are often only very little things with which to trace the criminal. Chemistry is important. There is nothing the microscope or an analysis will not reveal, whether it is counterfeit food ticket or a mark on the laundry. Here, a bicycle number which has been removed reappears after chemical treatment. A collection of different burglary tools gives manifold evidence. The special microscope brings up the traces of crime. Often paper documents play a great part in clearing up a crime. Even typed letters have their personal character. By a special system the model, year, and other items of the used typewriter can be recorded. There is a central ballistic service which has to deal with all questions concerning arms and bullets. Instead of "Sherlock Holmes" science work as detective.
