3:03 pm
is important it has to do with a 2011 a verdict in a separate case that was seen as a precedent back then the old german prosecutors were actually focused on trying to find concrete evidence attached to specific crimes and back through 1011 verdict so that you could also convict people as accessory to murder and nazi crimes basically as being part of the nazi machine and this is what happened right now in this case as well there's lots more to talk about thomas but 1st let's have a quick look at who bruno di is and the crimes he has been convicted of. bruno these conviction is for crimes that took place here at the foremost it off concentration camp near good density in won't is now poland it's estimated that around $65000.00 people were murdered here in a gas chamber or by shooting through disease and exhaustion. camp records show bruno d. was going to church home from august 944 to april 945. was to keep

3:05 pm
a very difficult process here in germany how the country grips with the with its past that reckoning with the past has been a difficult sometimes very painful process and one of the reasons has to do with the what i mentioned already that 2011 verdict with change the way that german prosecutors dealt with these kinds of issues since then there have been a few more cases german media reporting for example that there are i think there are around 30 cases similar cases now under way but this just shows how difficult the process has been in germany in the last few decades but also how important it is also for the future this is not only about trying to understand the past it's also about trying to send a message because it's becoming more important than ever also given current developments here in germany to try understand what happened in the past and how it can be prevented in the future as well thomas sparrow thank you very much for. now to some other stories making news around the world a new u.s.

now from delhi with more money iraq has there been any help forthcoming from the government for these children particularly seeing as their education prospects have been severely affected. well of the beginning you know we need to see these 2 not separately but as a part of the systems which basically exist because of extreme depreciation so unless you uplift the entire family and to empower them and children really it's a difficult to imagine any kind of future for the 2 of them so that is why the government on its spot has been taking get of subtle things like announcing this to packages or distributing food to these family and giving direct cash transfers but specificially for the children there's not a lot which has been happening if you talk about education anyway on the ground in the ratio you have done mostly by civil society groups and n.g.o.s but now we just want chopping down it's been a said back and here it is where you see a photo or digital divide and
