LithuaniaFor decade

Lithuania:For decades a confessional in a church inLithuania’s capital Vilnius kept a precious secret: a trove of documents offering an unprecedented glimpse intoJewishlife in Eastern Europe before and during the Holocaust The cache with documents dating back to the mid-18th century includes religious texts Yiddish literature and poetry testimonies about pogroms as well as autobiographies and photographs "The diversity of material is breathtaking" David Fishman professor of Jewish History at New York’s Jewish Theological Seminary told AFP via telephone describing the discovery as a "total surprise" "It’s almost like you could reconstruct Jewish life before the Holocaust based on these materials because there is no aspect and no region and no period that is missing" he added Representational image Reuters The trove was discovered earlier this year during a cleanout of the church that was used as a book repository during Soviet times The documents together with a larger cache found in Vilnius nearly three decades ago are "the most significant discovery for Jewish history since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in the 1950s" Fishman said Jerusalem of the North Among the most treasured finds are several original manuscripts of poems written in the Vilnius ghetto by celebrated Yiddish poet Avrom Sutzkever including the haunting "To My Brother" "We had the versions that he reconstructed from memory and published right after the war" Fishman said of Sutzkever who survived the Holocaust "Now we have the manuscripts that he actually wrote in the ghetto and there are differences – that was a very powerful find" An 1857 agreement between the Jewish water carriers in Vilnius and the city’s famous Ramailes rabbinic Talmudic academy or yeshiva offers a telling insight into everyday life 160 years ago In exchange for copies of the Bible and Talmud the yeshiva agreed to let the water carriers use a room for prayers on the Sabbath and holidays free of charge A ledger of the patients of Zemach Shabad a famous Jewish doctor and social and political activist whose monument stands in central Vilnius was also among the documents seen by AFP Known as the "Jerusalem of the North" before World War II Vilnius – Vilna in Hebrew and Vilne in Yiddish -was a hub of Jewish cultural and religious life and home to hundreds of Jewish social religious cultural and scientific organisations Book Smugglers Established in 1925 the YIVO Yiddish Scientific Institute was among the most important Co-founded by Shabad it documented and studied Jewish life in Eastern Europe Its New York branch was founded in 1926 and became the institute’s headquarters in 1940 as Nazi Germany invaded Eastern Europe After occupying Vilnius in 1941 the Nazis destroyed the Jewish community and plundered its cultural wealth Jewish poets and intellectuals were coerced by the Nazis in the Vilnius ghetto into selecting Yiddish and Hebrew books and documents for a planned institute in Germany about the people they had slated for annihilation Their story has been chronicled in a book written by Professor Fishman entitled "The Book Smugglers" The Germans sent a portion of the plundered texts to Frankfurt but the Jewish archivists risked their lives to hide a vast array of precious documents from their tormentors Then the Soviets But that was not the end of the threat After the war a Lithuanian librarian Antanas Ulpis intervened to save those documents that had survived the Nazis from the country’s new Soviet occupiers who were bent on destroying them as part of dictator Joseph Stalin’s anti-Jewish purges Ulpis deftly hid some of the manuscripts "under a pile of Soviet journals – that’s why no one bothered to look that’s why they weren’t discovered sooner" Renaldas Gudauskas director of Lithuania’s National Library told AFP There they remained untouched for decades in the confessional in St George’s Church that the Soviets used as a book repository after the war It was only earlier this year when any remaining papers were being cleared out in order to hand the building back to the Catholic Church that the pile of Jewish documents was stumbled upon They were transferred to Lithuania’s newly renovated national library in Vilnius which already holds a larger archive of Jewish documents discovered in the capital after the collapse of the Soviet Union nearly three decades ago The entire collection includes roughly 170000 pages Lara Lempertiene head of the national library’s Judaica Research Centre told AFP History online Library archivists who read Yiddish and Hebrew pore over the newly-found documents that Fishman estimates will take five years to catalogue They are also preparing them to be accessible on the internet The New York-based YIVO Institute has spearheaded a bid to put the collection online along with Jewish documents from Vilnius that the US Army found in defeated Germany in 1946 and sent to New York Launched two years ago the cyberspace history project aims to put the overall total of more than one million documents online in a digital archive highlighting Jewish life in Eastern Europe before and during the Holocaust Archives that were once scattered on both sides of the Atlantic "are now conceptually intellectually and physically being reunited" says Lempertiene For Simonas Gurevicius one of the city’s few Jews who still speaks Yiddish the newly discovered archive proves that Hitler and Stalin ultimately failed to wipe out his language and the civilisation built around it "The star of the Northern Jerusalem nearly burnt out but its light is still shining" Gurevicius told AFP Some 195000 Lithuanian Jews perished under the 1941-44 Nazi German occupation Today there are around 3000 Jews living in the NATO and EU country of 28 million people Beijing: Finance officials of major economies pledged on Sunday to boost sluggish global growth but announced no joint initiatives and promised to defend against the shockwaves of Britain’s vote to leave the European Union In a joint statement after a two-day meeting envoys of the Group of 20 also rejected trade protectionism an issue that has risen in prominence as US Republication presidential candidate Donald Trump has talked about restricting access to American markets The United States China Britain Germany and other governments at the meeting in Chengdu in western China pledged to use spending monetary policy and regulatory reforms to strengthen growth They promised to strengthen communication and cooperation but announced no joint action as some financial traders had hoped The gathering of finance ministers and central bank governors took place against a backdrop of tension over Chinese exports of low-priced steel and Britain’s EU vote AP "We are taking action to boost confidence and promote growth" said the statement It promised to use"any and all policy instruments" to achieve "strong sustainable balanced and inclusive growth objectives" US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said ahead of the meeting that it was not the right time for coordinated action similar to that in 2008-09 following the global crisis because economies face different conditions The gathering of finance ministers and central bank governors took place against a backdrop of a weak global recovery tension over Chinese exports of low-priced steel and Britain’s EU vote which jolted global markets Sunday’s statement called for a "close partnership" between Britain and its European neighbours in the event British leaders go through with plans to leave the trade bloc On Friday the director-general of the International Monetary Fund Christine Lagarde called for quick action to end uncertainty about the British-EU split She said that turmoil prompted the IMF to cut its forecast of this year’s global growth by 01 percentage points The referendum "increased global economic uncertainty" said Sunday’s statement "G20 members are ready to actively respond to the potential economic and financial impact brought by the British referendum" it said "In the future we hope to see Britain as a close partner of the EU" The envoys also pledged to avoid devaluing currencies to boost exports "We will oppose all forms of protectionism" the statement said Trump who was named the Republican Party’s nominee for president on Friday setting up a race with presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has stirred alarm about thetrade by calling for measures to protect American industry though he has given no details Sunday’s G20 statement also cited the importance of reducing excess production capacity in steel and other industries that have led to a glut of supply and depressed prices That is a source of tension between China and trading partners that accuse Beijing of exporting steel at improperly low prices hurting competitors and threatening a loss of jobs Beijing has announced plans to shrink its coal and steel industries eliminating millions of jobs The United States has imposed anti-dumping duties on Chinese steel and European officials have launched trade probes Lew emphasisedUS interest in seeing progress on that during a meeting with his Chinese counterpart Lou Jiwei according to Lew’s department Berlin: Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge lamented drawing holders Borussia Dortmund in the third round of the German Cup in a repeat of last season’s semi-finals The two heavyweight giants of German football are already due to meet in the Bundesliga in Dortmund this Saturday but will clash again in the last 16 of the Cup at Munich’s Allianz Arena on 19 or 20 December "That’s come very early That will be an intense game just before Christmas which no one wants" rued Rummenigge on Monday File image of the Bayern Munich team in their 2nd round clash against FB Leipzig in the German Cup AP "Normally that would be a final which we have often had in the last few years" Bayern have won the German Cup 18 times while Dortmund lifted the trophy for the fourth time by beating Eintracht Frankfurt in last season’s final Borussia beat the Bavarians 3-2 in the semi-finals after Bayern and Dortmund had met in the German Cup finals of 2012 2014 and 2016 Dortmund trounced Bayern 5-2 in 2012 before the Bavarians gained revenge with a 2-0 victory in 2014 also winning two years later when the final was decided by penalties after a goalless draw It is the second tough cup draw Bayern have been dealt this season after needing penalties to see off RB Leipzig last Wednesday in the second round "First a tough second-round game now again in the third round – these are important games for us" Bayern defender Mats Hummels who played for Dortmund until 2016 was equally unimpressed "This game has been seen more often than ‘Sissi’ or ‘Dinner for One’" quipped Hummels on Twitter referring to two movies which are extremely popular in Germany over the festive period However Dortmund midfielder Nuri Sahin is clearly relishing the clash tweeting: "I’d say ‘All-In’" after the draw London:Frustrated by a series of miserable experiences at Wembley Tottenham Hotspur host Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday desperate to finally vanquish the ghosts that haunt them at the national stadium When Mauricio Pochettino’s side kick off their Champions League campaign against the Germans it won’t be just priceless Group H points that are up for grabs Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane Harry Winks and Kyle Walker-Peters during training Reuters For Tottenham Wembley is in danger of becoming the bogeyman that wreaks havoc on their ambitions to challenge for silverware at home and abroad The north London club have been forced to relocate to Wembley while White Hart Lane is being rebuilt But Spurs have now played 12 matches at Wembley since the famous old arena was revamped — winning just twice and suffering eight defeats Tottenham’s struggles at Wembley came into harsh focus last season in the Champions League when they won just one of their group matches there CSKA Moscow were the only team they could beat as defeats against Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen sent them crashing out Even playing against Gent in the Europa League at Wembley proved a painful experience as the Belgians claimed a draw that eliminated Tottenham in the last 32 Remarkably there was still more Wembley woe in store for Spurs before the end of the season as they lost the FA Cup semi-final to Chelsea 4-2 The contrast between their form at Wembley and White Hart Lane is stark Last season’s second-place finish in the Premier League was built on a brilliant unbeaten record in front of their own fans which saw them win 17 and draw two of their 19 home league games Yet as soon as they pitch up at Wembley Tottenham’s invincibility evaporates They’ve done their best to make Wembley feel like home draping the stadium in the club’s livery hanging posters with Spurs slogans and employing a drummer to lift the noise levels But after the more intimate atmosphere of White Hart Lane where the fans were much closer to the pitch Wembley hasn’t been conducive to generating the intensity Tottenham thrive on Facing Chelsea in their first home game this season Tottenham fell behind to Marcos Alonso’s goal before Michy Batshuayi’s late own goal drew them level Not for the first time at Wembley Tottenham couldn’t keep calm at the other end and Alonso won it after a mistake from goalkeeper Hugo Lloris with two minutes left Malaise It was the first time Tottenham had lost a home league match since Southampton beat them 2-1 in May 2016 Pochettino’s side fared little better against Burnley in their second home game as Dele Alli’s opener was cancelled out by Chris Wood’s last-gasp equaliser Some Tottenham fans claim the size of the Wembley pitch which Spurs had a request to make smaller turned down by the Premier League is a factor in being unable to reproduce the kind of high-octane approach that harried teams into submission last term However Pochettino made it clear it was his players who are to blame for Tottenham’s Wembley malaise rather than the so-called curse "There’s nothing to complain about Wembley I think it was us" he said "It doesn’t play on the minds of my players The way we concede a goal is not Wembley It’s because of us" Dortmund have their own Wembley pain to soothe as they return to the stadium that played host to the most painful defeat in the club’s history With just seconds remaining in the 2013 Champions League final Dortmund looked destined for extra time with the score level at 1-1 against Bayern Munich But Arjen Robben snatched the trophy away from Dortmund with an 88th-minute winner Taking a positive approach that would serve Tottenham well Dortmund midfielder Nuri Sahin who came on as a substitute after Robben’s goal insisted his team won’t dwell on past agony "We’re really looking forward to playing at the stadium again" he said

Virender Sehwag had a ‘demoralising’ effect on him Ashwin in a chat show recalled an incident when he was bowling to Sehwag and the latter was smashing him all over the place “There was an incident in Dambulla where every ball that I bowled first ball I bowled outside off stump Sehwag cut me” he said “Next ball I bowled on off stump he cuts me Next ball I bowled on middle stump he cuts me The next ball I bowl on leg stump he again cuts me So I said ‘what the hell is happening’ So I just bowled a ball fuller Sehwag stepped out and slugged me out for a six” Ashwin said It was the time Ashwin struggled to cement his place in the Indian team “So I said to myself either I am just not good enough or this guy is just way too good … which he was But to the greater Sachin Tendulkar also I didn’t struggle with bowling so much in the nets too I was very inquisitive I observed this for a few days” Ashwin then said that he asked the former Indian batting great how it is that he can improve himself to which he got a very typical Virender Sehwag answer “But then I couldn’t hold myself back I went to him (Sehwag) and asked ‘so what should I do to improve’ If I had ask to Sachin he would have given me some tips If it were MS he would have given me a perspective” he said “Viru said ‘You know what I don’t think off-spinners are bowlers They do not trouble me at all I just find it easy smashing them’ I said ‘Sir you are cutting me’ He said ‘Yeah I hit off-spinners against the spin on the off side and for left-arm spinners I will hit against the spin on the leg side” Ashwin eventually found out a way to dismiss Sehwag and in the most unconventional manner possible “So basically for Sehwag it was very simple he hit people on good balls So my simple strategy to Sehwag was to bowl rubbish balls And it worked Because when you start bowling rubbish balls he starts dictating the pace to you with your rubbish balls or your so-called against him” Ashwin is currently in
