a heart thank you so much for your company everyone today is a fateful day it's in germany the country honors the victims of kristallnacht the night of violence against jews that marked a dark prelude to the holocaust a country's leaders warn against another rise in anti semitism but november ninth it is also the anniversary of two other crucial days in german history. eighty years on the horrors of the past still resound. german chancellor angela merkel attending a commemorative service at berlin's largest synagogue. let's get. the jewish life is flourishing in germany once again that is an unexpected gift after
7:03 pm
the break with civilization that was the holocaust but at the same time we're seeing a worrying anti semitism that is threatening jewish life in our country and other places in the world why jews the thought themselves say this anti semitism is expressed increasingly openly in unbridled hate speech on the internet and in the public sphere. these anti semitic acts are a distressing reminder of events eighty years ago. on the night of the ninth of november nine hundred thirty eight the nazis unleashed a wave of violence against jews. across germany thousands of synagogues jewish shops and businesses were looted and torched some one hundred jews were killed twenty six thousand were taken to concentration camps. but november the ninth is
7:04 pm
also the anniversary of two other fateful days and german history. one hundred years ago in the closing days of world war one the social democrat politician philip shined a man proclaimed a new german republic from a window of the vice tag. and in one nine hundred eighty nine pro-democracy protests in east germany led to the fall of the wall and ultimately to the reunification of germany three days that loom large in germany's collective memory . but it's our actions today that show whether we have truly understood and learned from their consequences said german president fung five. hundred. actions we must prove that we germans have truly learned from the past and truly become more vigilant because of our history we need to take action at any time another person's dignity is viral. we need to take a stand when a language of hatred spreads its tentacles that we cannot allow a situation where some people claim once again to be the sole voice of the true
7:05 pm
people and marginalize others. with the far i don't turn it into germany party in parliament for the first time and extremist voices on the rise across the country these were poignant words. all right let's go to do to be political correspondent tom sparrow he's standing arrayed outside berlin's central station thomas i see a crowd behind you who are they were they doing and how is this historic data in. capital being commemorated. well it's obviously a day of remembrance here in berlin it's been a day off historical lessons it's been a day also drawing parallels to the current atmosphere in germany and most fear which has been marred by populism marred by nationalism marred by other political
7:06 pm
events are not something that's also clear right here where we're standing in front of the main train station where there are different protests far right protests that were extremely controversial and demonstrations as well as the demonstration that had been precisely mentioning these issues are today and what can be learned from this day of remembrance according to berlin police there are around one thousand two hundred policemen here on duty trying to prevent this situation from from changing. becoming violent there are dozens of demonstrators you can probably see them around me and behind me all with a different message depending oversea on which side of the political spectrum they stand. first so far everything seems under control and peaceful all right let's focus now on these three truly historic and world changing events that occurred on the same day the proclamation of the first republican one nine hundred eighteen then two decades later the anti jewish progress in one nine hundred thirty eight
7:07 pm
and then the fall of the berlin wall in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine which event and i was very difficult to pick one but which event has shaped germany the most. they shape germany in very different ways and that was also something evident from today's events from the different events that were done to commemorate them there are events that are in different eras and that are linked with different types of values if you think for example of the fall of the berlin wall so closely linked to the values of freedom and democracy if you look for example at the program that foreshadowed the whole of course on that germany has tried to learn so much from from that historical responsibility that germany has those three events that are commemorated today are extremely different but they all mocked germany in very different ways and that was something absolutely evident today here in berlin they are at the day a feint the number of anti semitic attacks thomas which include violent offenses
7:08 pm
and hate speech propaganda has remained fairly steady for about a decade at fifteen hundred a year that's at least according to an interior ministry report what do you make of germany and anti semitism in the year twenty team. politicians have been warning authorizing anti semitism here in germany not only on the streets events that we have also covered on d.w. news but also on the line and that's something that they have been trying to fight in fact germany has now for the first time an anti semitism commission of precisely tasked with dealing with these incidents with also teaching school in schools improving integration in germany this is something that angela merkel and other leading politicians in the country have warned time and time again this issue of rising at the same it is i mean the country of hate speech and something that again goes hand in hand with germany's responsibility so obviously there are events that we've been covering and politicians have been clear once again today to say that
7:09 pm
there's that there are historical lessons that have to be learned from the events in the past and that can be applied today by thomas sparrow reporting from the center of berlin and i see the cry crowd behind you growing larger or catch up with you in the next bulletin for now thank you so much. i now as the world remembers the end of world war one france is also finally marking the sacrifices made by african soldiers then on their french colonial rule mali and president abraham bakker cape town joined his french counterparts in my new iraq home this week at a mine went to those who suffered and died in the war. this is what commemorating a world war can look like. but the actual purpose of the money will not cost visit to us was this a monument for the black army it's
7:10 pm
a no mas to the two hundred thousand africans from the french colonies that fought in world war one. one hundred years later their service is still relevant especially for french citizens of african descent. now both of us who see this is important because this is part of africa's and france's history and we're here today because this is ali history this is unprecedented for once the black is being honored when they leave. even mali and president kate came to mark the occasion of. the monument is a source of great pride for many africans the original was built after world war one and then stolen by the nazis but the new version does the trick. everybody is talking about the black army again not all of them are people of color by the way one of its white veterans from the second world war had
7:11 pm
a special message. give a bit of a future give it a good oh my grandfather fought in world war one my father also one of my uncles was killed what we need in my eyes is the end of enmity between the peoples we can't have that anymore. with the warriors of peace or order to give you their love . this resonates in the house more than anywhere else. the city was one of the key battlegrounds in france allied forces managed to hold off the germans the city has been making a comeback ever since because whatever the obstacles there's always hope and better days ahead the power of the human race is that we know how to stick together in difficult times this city has reinvented itself with the help of engineers architects and international solidarity but especially with the force of the people of us claim all squirmy is only eighteen years young this stirs up strong emotions
7:12 pm
in her the demand of the city man must kill it heads yes it does the people from senegal the ivory coast and mali died for france it's true that france colonized them but it wasn't their choice most of them had to fight for fronts that was unjustified you could almost say they died for nothing at least not for their country it hurts to think about that that will be the city's a free man if it's. but one hundred years later it's also a reminder of the value of peace for europeans. and africans. and fitting into centenary anniversary commemorations france is holding a peace conference over the weekend president of the united nations general assembly maria fernanda spinoza will be there she told the daily news that her message would be that multilateralism is not an option it's

7:14 pm
nationalism so which message are you taking to france multilateralism is not an option is the only way to address global challenges in you name it i mean there is no the way to address climate change there is no other way to address the peace challenges the arms race for example there is a need of strong political commitment to make sure that we don't spend more money on weapons than in reducing hunger around the world germany will have a nonpermanent seat in the security council from two thousand nine hundred on or can germany do four more multilateralism germany east convinced player of multilateralism and we very much need that bold messages. for full commitment to multilateral action and to collective responses to global challenges one of them of course being peace and security u.s. president donald trump has called himself

7:34 pm
members of the caravan currently making its way north are said to have disappeared after getting on to trucks the reports from various organizations have not yet been confirmed i am pompadour but i mean i'm probably going to say on differing accounts of the numbers missing your when some sources say eighty at this one hundred most hour on the human rights records he's are looking into this case. and it is your model is stunning in this iran though. it's feared that they may have been kidnapped and handed over to organized crime groups active in the area where they went missing. and now others in the caravan a spooked. when jovan lost sight of his two friends he thought he'd never see them again. with the americans i was really worried they had disappeared and i would never hear from them again but we got separated while i was trying to find
7:35 pm
space on one of the vehicles i had no idea where they had gone. i'd say between ten and twenty thousand migrants have disappeared in the last ten years that's one reason why people are queuing to get into this tent inside they can call their families for free to reassure them that they're still ok i mean work with our lives if you don't fall off the train you got run over by a truck you know a lot of. sonus it us but it just we're told it runs everything here i mean. we're most afraid for the children. because of the danger the people in the stadium divide didn't register according to the region they came from that way they hope any disappearances will be noticed. that it's very dangerous travelling between mexico city and the u.s. border we need to be well organized and able to look after each other we have to
7:36 pm
know about each other every individual every child in that in need they got up it's on that mean you're. going to list crime is lying in white everywhere on the journey ahead the migrants are at risk of kidnapping and blackmail. it with every bit of sun asking us again criminals with the migrants with fake office software. then they're forcibly held the. and subjected to human trafficking in another post. but even those who live in fantasy lament their. attempts to jump the migrants even take place within temporary accommodation in mexico city the president of the mexican federal human rights commission says migrants are often approached by people claiming to be officials. now people who feel that they've been no one had heard of the supposed organization with them and. they offer to take people in lauri's in groups of eighteen. north and over the border into the
7:37 pm
us. and i think we're likely going to start with. the biggest concern for the people in the caravan is to avoid falling victim to criminals exploiting their desperation. i am going to hand you back over to helena and there's been some encouraging news for egypt's economy absolutely tourists are coming back to egypt i mean why not it is such a beautiful country tourism returning to the country after years of political unrest and terrorist attacks the sec's just snapped back last year with more and more europeans returning in interest growing encounters with a lot of potential like china. the tourists are back around the pyramids of giza for example tourists who booked spain last year are coming to egypt this year they want to see the big sights this group from france is taking
7:38 pm
a boat trip along the nile. like you alone in the world a lot of peace and quiet a beautiful moment with family and friends investors are once again active after a long hiatus like investing in the nile's fleet of boats that creates jobs which are desperately needed. to go for several years we've hardly worked at all it's much better now we sometimes work up to twenty eight days a month. tourism is enormously important for the egyptian economy the tourism industry in cairo has just announced that it will make up around fifteen percent of economic output this year and that's not just the returning european tourists to be in. the chinese to have discovered egypt many chinese restaurants have sprung up with national language and cuisine just like at home. and this is the best meal we have. you should be above it but. the locals are glad that
7:39 pm
tourism is picking up again and they hope that might help rejuvenate other sectors of the economy in the country on the nile. to greece's so-called red gold now and suffer on is only cultivated in very few countries but as its nickname suggests age sixteen expense if the greeks have been doing it for three centuries in fact it even helped some of them through the global financial crisis. sucked from the negroes for a few weeks and all to. the spices extracted from three red threats that grow inside the saffron crocus flour. that picked out by hand which is why stuff from is one of the most expensive spices in the world. one gram costs up to twenty euros giving it the nickname bread gold it mostly grows in iran but also in northern greece during the economic crisis greece rediscovered suffer from as
7:40 pm
a source of income this is corinne went to london to look for work despite having two university degrees he had no luck and returned to greece in two thousand and twelve. must agree that it was difficult to find work during the crisis because particularly in civil engineering because there was no construction give them some kind of death. we've been taught how to grow stuff from from our parents and grandparents and we knew our way around the fields. so i thought some from could provide me with a good source of income. on the one form of. curry works for our great cultural collective that's grown enormously since it began back in two thousand they were producing thirty kilograms a year today it's full tonnes the suffering industry employs five thousand people and grace in a region where the crisis left almost
7:41 pm
a quarter of people unemployed. a lot of young people found work in the fields. there are even scientists out head planting practices to try and make a living. stable i think more people will come if a product continues to sell. if there's more demand will increase production. seventy percent of the stuff from is exported to the us germany and from the co-operative is currently negotiating with chinese wholesalers that planning to acquire more land for crops next year. now with global tensions on the rise calls are growing for germany to take on a greater role in conflict zones but given the country's history many germans are wary of assuming a more assertive world ever since compulsory military service was abolished support for the army has been diminishing and it has struggled to retrack new recruits well
7:42 pm
now the ones there has launched a charm offensive hoping to change that and our social media editor gerri is here jared always good to see you talk to us about this image problem it's something that german military is partly using social media to overcome because it's been a couple of years of bad headlines for the blondest fair it gets its underfunded and under equipped and so sometimes it gets accused of not being ready for for combat should it need to go into it last year there was a really really bad scandal that damaged the reputation of the bundeswehr and that was there was a sex abuse and a hazing scandal in one of its military colleges and this did incredible damage so basically the blunder sphere is trying to repair the damage it's also got to deal with this skepticism among the german public generally to missions involving the german army and at the same time it's got to try and recruit new soldiers because the compulsory military service hasn't existed since two thousand and eleven so
7:43 pm
there's a few factors at play here how are they going about winning the hearts and minds of the germans so their latest campaign is a campaign designed specifically for what's up and this is very clever because this is the most popular messaging service in germany let's look at a trailer for this campaign it's called never fire so why featuring what's known here as the k.s. carrier this is germany's elite special forces who gets a follow them around the world as they train for their special missions and people will be given these videos the. directly far into the. very professionally as well as we can see you have spent the a lot of money on a balloon this first puts them and told us today that what they're trying to do is trying to let the public know exactly what the military dollars on a day to day basis because the public generally doesn't know and they want to recruit young men and women to the military that's part of it but also like i said
7:44 pm
trying to repair this damaged image in the public and a bit of a wider context because. lies like the u.s. are pressuring germany to spend more money on defense to right now while we're talking about nato germany isn't alone there the alliance is also trying to spice up its image literally i'm going to introduce you to what's being called night secret weapon and this is a norwegian lift ten and. he's been hiding the face of nato has tried in junction military exercises he's a social media star with six hundred thousand instagram followers he's a model he isn't afraid of taking off his gear and sharing his fitness tips like a hipster viking look at that halo. i got to tell you i spent seven years covering nato summit same brussels i've never come across an iraqi look at no
7:45 pm

you could see. just. pictures from a new and documentary about the first world war called the shall not grow old or least it's part of the commemorative events surrounding the one hundredth anniversary of the end of the great war it has it was made by the renowned director peter jackson and on mail from our culture desk is here our fascinating stuff just by looking at that footage of robin not peter jackson is best known for lord of the rings so why this documentary why that although he did well actually there is a connection because of course a lot of the rings are all talk and tolkien fort in the first world war not only that he fought in one of the worst battles the battle of the psalm way over a million casualties and he was wounded when he was in hospital recovering he dreamt top middle of the drum the idea for the lord of the rings in the hope it's
7:50 pm
for the infantry soldiers because he talks about the camaraderie as well as the whole there's this tremendous camaraderie and the hope it's about as well i mean anyway peter jackson has made this documentary it's got no no aeration it's got no historians it's only the words of the actual men who fought and as he says it's not the story of the war it's the story of the human experience of fighting the war and as people modded noticed that the very beginning that those pictures were in once in black and white which we would expect well we're going to hear a lot more about that now and with the help of modern technology he's made an amazing documentary and here's how he did it. the effect is breath taking. jerky black and white images suddenly move smoothly with sound and in color this footage from the first world war has been digitally first stored and processed frame by frame making it seem as if it had been shot
7:51 pm
only yesterday. because the war was a color war you know that was but the purpose of what we were doing was to try to to make a film where you're listening to the people that were there and you're seeing it as a sort of a sort of like oh it was the director peter jackson sifted through six hundred hours of oral histories by first world war veterans to create part of the soundtrack. in other sections he had expert lip reader study the silent film then he used voices songs and even birdsong to bring the archival footage to life. the mood behind the lines of the horrific war was cheerful these images were shot during breaks in the fighting meant to reassure the soldiers' families back home in britain. jackson says that most of the work involved turning poor quality black and white footage into good quality material
7:52 pm
and altering the frame rate to make the images flow more smoothly if you go to the computer this is for fifteen frames a second but we want to be twenty four the computer without you just press about me than a. human involved in the computer will actually generate it will take the frame before the frame after it will generate frames that don't exist with that with the original material and create its own frames any by using modern technology to make these images feel more immediate and without showing any of the actual bloodshed the film also manages to bring home the fact that many of these relaxed and happy young men did not grow all their lives cut short by the war. it's extraordinary isn't it i mean what he's done with the aid of technology makes it much more realistic much closer to you and it's kind of eerie and has as the title says the shall not grow old you know that it's so poignant that it is you know what happened unfortunately tell us about another artistic and devery that is
7:53 pm
commemorating those who fell or there are a lot going on around the world but one of the really caught my eye was from a british officer who rob something called shrouds of the psalm again about this terrible battle in the first world war he got the names of the seventy two thousand british casualties that fell in the battle of the sun and over the last few years he's made believe the seventy two thousand figures and that currently on display next to him pick stadium in london you just would constantly you know as we see these drone pictures coming out there you see the huge loss of life and it really is an extraordinary commemoration to these people i believe that is indeed very poignant my goodness all right robin we've got very briefly we've got more on our website yeah and on facebook and d.-w. culture facebook site those letters of from a german soldier just the same as an american soldier back you know saying we have
