At the trial of Irma Grese, a cruel camp guard and rare Nazi woman to be tried

10 Aug 2023  |  Slate.fr
Irma Grese, a young woman who served as a guard in several Nazi concentration camps, became infamous for her extreme cruelty and sadism. Despite her initial aspirations to become a nurse, she was drawn into the Nazi regime's brutal system, eventually becoming a high-ranking guard at Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen. Her trial in 1945, one of the first organized by the Allies, highlighted the significant yet often overlooked role of women in the Nazi regime. Grese's case underscores the broader issue of female complicity in the Holocaust, a topic that has only recently begun to receive scholarly attention.

The Trial of Marie-Antoinette: How the Court Condemned the Queen to Death Without Tangible Evidence

05 Jul 2023  |  rtbf.be
Marie-Antoinette, accused of treason and conspiracy against the state following her husband Louis XVI's execution, faced a biased and hasty trial by the Revolutionary Tribunal. The young French Republic, in turmoil less than a year after its establishment, used her as a scapegoat. The trial, which became a sociological symbol of the Revolution's descent into violence and terror, was not just against the former queen but also against the symbol of the Old Regime and the perceived moral and sexual decay of women. Despite the lack of tangible evidence, public hatred for 'the Austrian' and her Habsburg heritage was used to justify her execution by guillotine on October 16, 1793. The episode of the podcast 'Femmes coupables' delves into the complexities of the trial and the transformation of Marie-Antoinette into a myth and martyr.

The case, which took place while the family was living in Seoul, was revealed when Jean-Louis Courjault discovered two infant bodies in their freezer. DNA tests confirmed the couple as the biological parents, leading to Véronique's trial and raising awareness of neonaticide, a crime historically tolerated but now seen as monstrous and predominantly committed by women.

The European Union's Climate Change Plan and the Global Effort

12 Apr 2017  |  euronews
The article discusses the European Union's new global climate plan, which aims to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and 2050, aligning with the goal to keep global temperature increase below 2°C. The EU's plan includes a legally binding agreement to be proposed at the Paris Conference in December 2015. Despite the EU's commitment, the article emphasizes the necessity of action from other major emitters, particularly the US and China, to make a substantial impact on global emissions. The US and China have recently shown a willingness to address climate change, with both countries announcing their own emission reduction targets. The article suggests that while the EU's leadership in climate regulation is commendable, it is insufficient without global cooperation.
