Schneller travels 1913 to the Holy Land in order to inspect his father's work in Jerusalem, Bir-Salem and Nazareth.

The second institution was Bir-Salem, the 'training centre' for young adults becoming farmers.

>21 thornton37814: It's more a booklet, Lori. I found the description of the orphans and their school quite interesting: They all learned German and Arabic, mathematics, music, and biblical teaching. They also had gymnastics and practical work. The Armenian kids were much better in math then the Arabs. The Armenian also learned, in addition, Armenian and Turkish. The Germans also introduced steam engines for use in the lingerie, woodwork, and brickwork. They also brought showers along. Because hygiene was not exactly a virtue among the locals then, so many diseases could be avoided, like blindness. They took also took blind children. Later one these kids became the trombone teacher for the next generation. On one of the pictures you can see a plough drawn by 10 horses.

>22 SqueakyChu: Thanks, Madeline

Hello Paul! My summer has been disrupted - all in good ways - and I haven't visited threads like I should have.

Happy new thread, and I really like that photo of you - thanks for sharing.

From your previous thread - I was fascinated with all the bookmarks, and congratulations on reaching 75. I also thought your photos from the week course were interesting and balanced and just a pleasure to look at.

In November 1999 the Muslim authorities of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem illegally removed around 9000 tons of debris from the Temple Mount and dumped it somewhere else. Students discovered coins, pottery sherds, bones, tiles and other finds in the dumps and started collecting it. So this sifting project started and they unearthed thousands of finds from different periods, from the First Temple in Jerusalem till modern times. Interesting reading

91) Zieh hin, mein Kind! by Erich Schick. A councelling boook. There is an old song about Goodbye and Dying: Depart, Go, Move on. In the Bible we often read: Come, Come to me, come home, but the song writer writes about the last part of life: Depart in peace, move from this world into God's presence. Printed in 1942, when dying was an everyday experience.



Zieh hin, mein Kind; denn Gott selbst fordert dich
aus dieser eitlen Welt.
Ich leide zwar, dein Tod betrübet mich;
doch wie es Gott gefällt,
so unterlass' ich alles Klagen
und will mit stillem Geiste sagen:
Zieh hin, mein Kind!
Zieh hin, mein Kind!

English translation:
Depart, dear child!
Our God has called your soul
this futile world to leave.
Though I now grieve,
God's love does me console;
He will you now receive.
No need for further lamentation!
God gives the spirit consolation.
Depart, dear child!

written by Hoffmann, Gottfried (1658-1712)
melody written by Dora Rappard-Gobat (1842-1923) (from Basel)

96) 20 Jahre Teemobilarbeit 1989-2009 : wie alles angefangen hat, Rückblick, Teemobilarbeit heute by Johannes Vogel. In August 1989 some Christians had the idea of providing free coffee, tea, and some sandwiches in Basel for the people living in the streets (homeless, drug addicts, prostitutes ...). So they bought an old camper, pimped it up, and so went to the Lower Basel two or three evenings a week. There were many interesting encounters with different people. Some just used the opportunity to get some warm drink, others just wanted to talk, others asked for help (home, work, depression ...). This booklet tells about the first 20 years.



I joined that mobile home coffee regularly for several years and served coffee, tea, sandwiches, biscuits or whatever we received from local shops. I had some very interesting discussions till late in the night. The work had to close down a few years ago because of lack of finances.

97) Not over-population but under-education the cause of destitution not more emigration, but more education, and of better quality, the remedy for destitution. An old treatise about poverty and over-population. The unknown writer argues that 'over-population' cannot be the reason for destitution. He tells us that when the potatoes were introduced in Ireland there were still destitution around, the same since emigration is so popular: the problem is the poor education of the poor. Those who do not know how to support themselves are the cause of destitution, not that there are too many people. He is telling society then (around 1850) that with proper education also the poor will learn to support themselves and even will grow to help others. His conclusion: 'After providing for their own self-support, which their good conduct, the fruit of their good education, will readily enable them to do, they will devote their surplus energies and talents to the assistance of those who are unprovided with the means of securing a fair start for themselves.'



Well argued till he speaks about the Red Indians in America as savages: 'The natives, as is the case of all savages, were ignorant, incapable of steady labour, untractable, improvident, without skill, and without self-control.' Well, the land was stolen, how should the natives survive?

But he also realizes that sending the destituted, the drunkards, those unwilling to work etc. as migrants abroad does not actually solve their problem. But as soon as they are migrated he talks of them as bringing prosperity to the new lands ...

98) Muster aus Hans : ein Bericht by Eleonore Frey. Hans ist an autist. 'Hans ist anders als die andern. Das sind die andern auch.. Es ist sein Anderssein, das anders ist.' (others and different are the same words in German: Hans is other than the others. The others are, too. But his otherness is other.) The story tells us his thoughts and his deeds. His willingness to accept that he is different, and his uneasiness when others do not accept his being different. He works as a gardener. He lives within his boundaries and every change, every loud word can make him freeze - become a tree, as he puts it. One day he reads in the papers about an island called 'Hans' far away near the North Pole, this island is nothing but a rock looking outr of the sea, and Hand sympathizes and feels like that rock: always washed over by the waters, but wishing to be left alone in a calm sea... An interesting read, some fascinating thoughts.

99) Edgar Siegrist : ein Pionier des Schweizer Schwimmsports by Peter Wüthrich. Edgar grew up in Bern and wasn't able to swim when in high school. Learning to swim in the 1920s was like that: each kid got a swimming aid made of cork and there attached to it was a kind of fishing rod which the teacher was holding in his hands. But Edgar decided to end all mockery and learned to swim, then he challenged every boy in school till he became the fastest of all of them. He then was the first Swiss to take part in an international championship. He became third in the European championship in Magdeburg (Germany) in 1934 (backstroke). He held several Swiss records (backstroke and crawl) till he finished his active career in 1947. He then became trainer/coach for some clubs. He was the first Swiss who started a workout plan during the whole year. He had a big influence on Swiss swimming.

102) The Šiauliai Ghetto by Arūnas Bubnys. A dry, accurate record into the history of the Jews in Siauliai from 1941 till 1945. When the Germans arrived, the Lithuanian were quick in adapting the new hatred. Before WWII there were almost 8000 Jews living in Siauliai, the second largest population of Jews in Lithuania after Vilnius. They had there own Jewish council which worked together with the civil council of Siauliai. The biggest industry was that of leather, the largest factory founded by Chaim Frenkel. This factory saved many Jewish lives in the beginning of the persecution because the German army depended on shoes and gloves made in Siauliai. But the two ghettos were liquidated in 1944 and the remaining Jews were brought to concentrations camps in Germany and Poland. There only survived 350-500 Jews from Siauliai ....
