A set of photographs showing the private side of Adolf Hitler have been published for the first time. The colour pictures come from the collection of Hugo Jaeger, Hitler's personal photographer, who captured him on camera him from 1936 to the final days of his rule in 1945.

Herbertus Bikker, also known as De Beul van Ommen ("The Hangman of Ommen"), died at his home in Germany last november.
Bikker was a member of the Waffen-SS. In this function he served as a guard at the prison and work camp Erika near Ommen, the Netherlands. He received his nickname due to his brutal behaviour at the prison camp.
Bikker is the alleged murderer of Dutch resistance fighter Jan Houtman who was killed, twenty-seven years old, on 17 November 1944.

We've tried to run a wiki last 2 years. Unfortunately there are a lot of folks out there just trying to sabotage the wiki. In the end it took a lot of time to keep all articles clean from spam. There were also many great contributions to the wiki by different people. Thanks very much for your corrections and added content. It will find a new home here.
All information from the wiki will be transfered to this site within the next few weeks.
