01A_Natalie_Katherl_AT / 10_Natalie_Katherl_AT
Hello, my name is Natalie, I am 11 years old and I answer your question about maths. Maths is a main subject for us and so it is very important. We have maths five times per week. For me maths is sometimes easy but sometimes also very difficult. For example geometry I find very difficult. Some children from my class find maths particularly difficult and children from my class find maths particularly easy. Many greetings from Germany!

I am Christoph. I am 10 years old. We have a “colourful evening”. That is when the people from the village meet. The children perform sketches, songs and jokes. The school also contributes something. I have participated in a stage play. I was the electrician and wanted to set up the telephone. The service technician pretended the would make a phone call but this was impossible because the phone line was not set up. Usually two women organise this and it is a lot of fun.

06A_Michelle_Katherl_AT / 04_Michelle_Katherl_AT
I am Michelle, 11 years old and live in Ingolstadt. Adolf Hitler, the former dictator of the German Empire, was born on April 20, 1889 in the town Braunau in Austria. He died on April 30, 1945 in Berlin. So he lived to the age of 56.
Almost everything that Hitler did was incredibly bad. For example one thing was his hate and racism against Jews and disabled people. So these people had to live in fear of their lives. Another bad thing also was for example his attack on Poland, with which he started World War 2. In the course of the war the Nazis and their helpers committed mass crimes and genocide by order of their leader Adolf Hitler. They killed about 500,000 mentally and physically disabled people and more than 6 million jews. In addition, Hitler was appointed to be Reich Chancellor on June 30, 1933. Within a few months he was able to remove pluralistic democracy, federalism and the constitutional state by using prohibition and emergency decrees. Political opponents were brought to concentration camps, tortured and then killed.
