This is a newspaper interview with a draft doctor, Sibylle Teichert, at the end of the draft (but it will continue for her with the volunteers. She can go on as usual). http://www.ftd.de/politik/deutschland/:ende-der-wehrpflicht-besuch-bei-der-scheidenden-musterungsaerztin/60146075.html the whole article is focused on genitalia, the powerlessness of the victim and Mrs Teichert’s power over stripped young men. This woman (52) has spent the last 26 years checking conscripts for forced service in the armed forces, and, though she never herself, due to her gender, was subject to the draft and/or humiliating ‘medical’ examinations, she is described in the interview as missing the times, now gone (since a year or two) when she could ask the police to pick up youngsters who in fear had tried to stay away from her thorough inspections of them. Each and every one of them have then had to present to her their genitals and turn around and bend over to have their anus checked. Ultimately the police would secure that they didn’t escape this woman and/or her colleagues. “Nun müsse man noch einer eventuellen Analfistel auf den Grund gehen – die störe beim Marschieren” or in English: “We have to look for anal fistulas, she said. They disturb the marching…” Interesting, only men are checked for that, women who volounteer for the army are not…. And how ridiculous an excuse to humiliate people: anybody with such problems (not being able to walk… I hope we are not talking about “Stechmarsch” or goose step…. or are we, Mrs Teichert?) would seek help from decent medical personal long before ending up infront of this woman or her colleagues.

Over 20 000 deserters and war resisters paid the ultimate price at the hands of Hitler’s brutal war judges and executioners; thousands of others died in prison camps and penal battalions. Even for those who escaped death, life was never the same. They were left to live as pariahs, scorned by a society that professed to hate the regime they had actively opposed.
In contrast, their judges, masters of unbelievably draconian sentences, thrived in post-war Germany and beyond as honoured men in prestigious positions. Deserters is the story of this incredible injustice. It is the disturbing story of what happened to those who refused to fight for the Third Reich, and – even more disturbing – it is the story of an international community that has turned its back on them.

“Let us kill off youth – For the sake of truth – We who are old know what truth is – Truth is a bundle of vicious lies – Tied together and sterilized – A war-makers’ bait for unwise youth – To kill off each other – For the sake of – Truth” Comment on War by Langston Hughes and why not start with sexual humiliation – the fast track to the finished product and perfectly safe for the abusers. Why? Because nobody will ever talk about it openly, neither the victims nor the perpetrators. Beat them up and they will complain. Strip them and degrade them and they will help you keep it as a ‘secret’, pretending it never happened. Read more
As a trained nurse Lars G Petersson has spent years in the profit-obsessed British nursing home industry – from Surrey in the south to Edinburgh in the north. In Abuse UK he takes his reader on a detailed tour behind the curtains of this hidden world where so many Britons end their lives in utter misery. By doing so, he paints a picture of not only appalling standards and abusive care but also of systematic staff exploitation, toothless regulators and a catastrophically flawed government control system
Abuse UK is a book about failed system that betrays those it was meant to shelter and care for. It is also a book about a business that closes its ranks against the pestilential dissident and supports the perpetrators’ efforts to keep it all in the dark.
Read here and do something. After all, one of those behind the ‘protective’ walls of the nursing home could one day be your own mum or dad. It could even be yourself.
