This policy: after Mao's death, the headlines of the week, Mao of Zedong reported the death. China's great helmsman was 82jährig. The most important Communist revolutionary of the century died, have completed without his political work.
The son of a farmer from the southern Chinese province of Hunan had become the legend already during his lifetime. He who constantly called on to fight against authority and power demands, left as the father of new China celebrate itself in almost religious way.
A poet and philosopher, the political opponents, if it had to be, rigorously turned off. The politician Mao sought to arrange at the beginning with the Soviet Union. He received Khrushchev in 1959 with great honor. But they came to no agreement. Mao wasn't ready to prevent the leadership in Moscow. What followed was the break with the USSR. On the Ussuri River resulted in the armed confrontation. Since then, the USSR is considered enemy China. Organized mass rallies in Beijing against the intervention of the United States during the Viet Nam conflict. Sharp speeches and warnings to the address of the American "Papiertigers". But in 1972, Mao receives American President Nixon with great warmth. The Dialectician and strategist opens the way to the third great power to China. from now on, she starts an always more important political role to play between the superpowers in the East and West.
As the first German politician a Mao invitation was honoured the CSU leader Franz Josef Strauß. Mao, already drawn from his serious illness, warned once again of Russian imperialism. One of the last Western leaders, who visited the President in Beijing, was Chancellor Schmidt. He made clear the position of the Federal Government to implement a China policy that is not in the contradiction to the efforts of relaxation between East and West. In China's long and changeful history, the Communist revolution under Mao caused upheavals like never before. Despite sharp disputes among the leaders of the new China, Mao succeeded in consolidating his rule through new mass mobilization. Today historical pictures: the drammatischen scenes of the cultural revolution and the battle of the Red garden for Mao's reforms. The clashes continued to the present in the people's Republic between the reformers, who swear by Mao, and the realists who want to make a modern industrial State from the developing country China. The death of Mao's forces to the decision. 800 million search for a new leader in leisure: small cameras in come the photo market is going to be movement. New developments that combine optical refinements with easy to use electronics, among the racers at the photokina ' 76 - the world fair of photography in Cologne. The Japanese offensive is already stopped, the large the photographic industry from the United States and the Federal Republic have recaptured market share. Economy Minister Friderichs congratulated the German industry to an annual turnover of 4 billion marks. Will open up new dimensions for professionals and ambitious amateurs the Rolleiflex SL 2000 - roll ice motorized mirror reflex camera. Format 24 x 36 mm. removable cassette. Automatic, 2 viewfinder systems. Pocket cameras with DSLR Setup were among the most attractive novelties in Cologne. A new buyer's market is waiting for her opinion of experts. The first slide projectors were similar to small Cannon stoves. Playback single images technically endured a similar rapid development as the photography itself. Automatic slide projectors with compact magazine. Individual image Guide and remote control are already in every fifth household. Labor and overhead projectors changing objects with interchangeable tops help in schools and businesses. The GDR has secured a significant market share in us without large advertising effort with their cheap and solid cameras.
Their easy to use SLR cameras have built-in exposure meter and - as with the internships VLC 2 - open aperture. Measurement with electrical aperture value transfer.
The future of instant cameras - an area which was dominated by the company many years Polaroid was a topic of discussion in Cologne. Meanwhile, the photo giant Kodak has strengthened its counter-offensive - with the EK 6 for example out transported their images with the help of an electric motor. Federal President Scheel tried this easy way, to shoot photos, in addition to other cameras - as the pocket cameras with built-in lenses for normal and telephoto. The highest ranking German leisure photographer belongs to the largest and still-growing hobby municipality in Germany: 70% of the 22 million German households now have a camera.
In sports: Sports at the crossroads Germany's track and field athletes their sporting successes and defeats work up - in the stadium and in conversations with politicians, medical professionals and Association functionaries. After the Olympic Games is the national sport at the crossroads. Olympic medalists have good laugh. But the army of Nichtplazierten waiting for answers. One gave Chancellor Schmidt when he received the Montreal team: no sport from the retort, warned the Chancellor facing some gender-neutral super athlete from East Germany. The national sport should remain free of medical manipulations and coercively - a recipe that may be enough for athlete like Annegret Richter. The Olympic champion in the 100 metres - here on a sporting event after Montreal can sporting quartering Eastern bloc model safely forgo. She was the world before Montreal as a most talented sprinter. The Olympic successes in other sports are, however, available for the benefits Government funding: Paul-Heinz Wellmann, bronze in the 1500 metres, and Alexander Pusch. Gold in fencing. are sports soldiers of the Bundeswehr, which could prepare themselves as semi professionals on the Olympic Games. Somewhere between idealism and Government funding of national competitive sports will have to seek his successes. Whether the Chancellor's call brings medals and records to a "human race" is doubtful. The distance to the professional athletes of the East and the new stars from the big talent reservoir of America seems too strong.
