man who will is still missing fabiani is imprisoned somewhere ready. joachim gary hart wonders if your sons still hold radical beliefs. or if they've come to regret having joined the i.a.s. . and gosh i wanted to can they weren't that children in germany but the things he did down here they'll have to face the consequences for that. and if need be he'll have to face a sentence in germany. in germany your him says his sons lived a sheltered life untouched by war. now he realizes many germans would fear them as terrorists. i want to ask him how he got to this point do these things he never learned any of this in germany. says that he
6:36 am
really believes that this is what a good life is about taking others as slaves torturing them and this if you really think that's ok i'd like to ask him myself even if he has committed atrocities he's still our child that's just the way it is. you are him has to wait 5 days before he can meet his son finally he gets to meet the spokesman for the kurdish authorities. their reception is friendly but their willingness to help him is limited. one reason is germany's reluctance to take back german i asked members. which. is a part of the terrorist group these terrorist killed are people they sold on the girls and women the markets the slaves our victory over the terrorists has also helped prevent terror in germany europe and the world have met this is why we are hoping for cooperation including when it comes to sentencing. the next evening your hymns request is rejected. outright i was already in bed when i heard

6:44 am
about the viking age this is quite different from the history they'd be on learned at school. here at school you don't learn anything about the vikings daily lives that's what's so incredibly fascinating the respect. no one item do you want to write you know a few of these vikings were really pretty brutal. and would want to have been messed with them meant a lot but most of the vikings never travelled by state to look after the house. of a person. interested perspective vikings can apply to this beautiful community college and sell your art in 7 norway it's even office room and board on the market it's not hard to spot from which students are taking the viking class. the teachers have no problems with using modern tools for training supervising explains it's more about exploring the viking way of life and the precise reenactment of the poem
6:45 am
i always think about what materials people had available to them back then. and then we use that and built something with the techniques current ahead of time we go from 0. to being the popular series vikings focuses more on techniques for a minute during and pillaging the fighting's the baby on his temperament find the commercial image of the northmen problematic so. the more people hear that i'm interested in viking things they like approaching about its most basic they know a lot of a vikings from what they've seen on t.v. . so i always have to explain what's accurate about that and what's not. but they smile king has no objections to television's depiction of bloodthirsty swashbuckler as i'm just who belongs to the lovers men a group of hobby vikings dedicated to keeping norway's mediƦval legacy
6:46 am
a knife in their free time he climbs out of his car ready in full battle gear. for left men have faithfully reconstructed a viking longship they even forge their weapons and themselves they also practice this sort of play skills. you're not allowed to strike the head or neck the legs or hands. you only score points or if your sword touches your opponent's body. wooden planks instead of sleek fine but last leather shoes instead of sneakers is no women on deck noways modern day vikings bring the past back to life. today we live in a highly intellectual culture if someone's good at school get ahead and earn money . but. whoever was stronger they could lift the heavy stone was valued higher. virtues are much
6:47 am
closer to human nature. students of the viking school who learned that life back then wasn't necessarily all that primitive even if they have to make fire using flint. it's certainly a change from computer games and you tube. fabian has learned a lot at this college but he's worried that the viking trend could be misused by political extremists. you know sister or racists or neo nazis misuse vikings on the ruins claiming they are racially pure germanic people to the. major checked out system be taken but just running around in these clothes i might be mistaken for someone who believes ideals like that's your so-called airbus it also ma'am you know them all the viking school once there is to open possibilities for a simpler more authentic lifestyle and that's what more and more young people are looking for not only in
6:48 am

6:49 am
a special home they share a yana and her surrogate grandma live together with 30 other children and over $100.00 pensioners. they're all in one big housing complex where they spend their lives together. most pensioners live here because their relatives no longer want to care for them and most young people are here because their parents are no longer allowed to care for them many were alcoholics who lost custody. as a result many of their children were born with disabilities. with no other family to rely on young and old alike would be lonely if it weren't for this haven. for you to hear or read to you. you know for my entire family died in 1903 in
6:50 am
a car crash it was horrible. i almost lost my mind. back then i didn't want to live anymore. i would have preferred to die with my family. this unique home where young and old lived side by side was founded 12 years ago. it's an start of a shove in russia's brush court is done with public bicycle and it's one of a kind in the entire country. that. actually does establish i children are happy that they have loving care taken and live in a loving environment the kids don't need to feel ashamed if their disability they can get through life with their heads held up high yes i've seen it it's news just like other children without disabilities get the glow will use the because that's it because it's about. these residents are lucky. their home is widely acclaimed. thanks to funding by the state donors and volunteers the facilities are in create
6:51 am
condition. new other russians with disabilities or special needs are as fortunate human rights activists have repeatedly reported cases of abusive caretakers corrupt directors insufficient fire safety measures and a lack of funding in other homes. but often the public is unaware of this grim reality as most homes are isolated from the outside world. yes the director says this is long overdue to change. i did to save us i feel remains a huge barrier between people with and without disabilities in our society bringing my parents from the soviet generation to not want their children socializing with kids that have special needs and i shoot for that but this home away young says and pensioners live side by side still shows that it is possible not store they prefer
6:52 am
the same air walk under the same sun and to ordinary people when you've got less of the health of them. though of course with people of all ages residing here it's not always smooth sailing. living together and caring for each other can be challenging. still everyone here is very close they are eager to share their lives rather than just co-exist. if you will when i see children i forget all my problems to be a plug they just vanish so you fear and all i see are the good things from other well what to do with. the day of the special residential home winds down with a small dance performance. life is good because here russia's most vulnerable are not left to fend for themselves.

a little seal that someone used to stamp a letter 400 years ago and you think. you can go home and research it and it's very very very addictive. from sinatra's story and sticks to light footwear. take a different more technological approach. not only are the mudlarks looking for relaxation and historically interesting objects. we're also searching for unique materials for their artwork. in our studio nicholas burns old glass shards into colorful fish. there's a practical use for a place of honor for everything. pieces of roman plates victorian doll science and this fine collection of old pipes. after all like to show off the treasures. but
