Ohma - the inofficial chief of the Himba Village This is Ohma. She is probably about 79 years old. She belongs to the Himba people, one of the last semi-nomadic tribes in Africa. She was the wife of the chief and is still the unofficial authority in the village although her son has taken over a while ago. But nothing happens withouth Ohma being ok with it...!

Africa | Scenes at the village school. Classes are held out-of-doors as the small mud huts cannot accomodate all the children who want to learn reading and writing; text books are few, and children learn to write on the dusty ground, copying letters from a blackboard.

Hauptsturmfuhrer Günther Eberhard Dieter Wisliceny was a right hand man to Adolf Eichman, chief administrative architect of the slaughter of European Jews. A theology student in his younger days, Dieter became the hot pursuer of the Jews in Slovakia, Hungary and Greece. After the war, Wisliceny provided key evidence against Eichmann that was used in the 1960s against the latter during his trial in Israel. Wisliceny was tried and hanged in Czechoslovakia in 1948.
