- -German Federal Court Rejects Voting Machines (Bundes-Verfassungs-Ggericht)
"However, the Federal Voting Machines Ordinance (Bundeswahlgeräteverordnung) is unconstitutional because it does notensure that only such voting machines are permitted and used which meetthe constitutional requirements of the principle of the public nature ofelections. According to the decision of the Federal ConstitutionalCourt, the computer-controlled voting machines used in the election ofthe 16th German Bundestag did not meet the requirements which theconstitution places on the use of electronic voting machines."
Editor's Note: Voting machines were rejected because they did not allow public scrutiny of the individual ballots. This standard would also be relevant to voting machines in other countries, such as the United States. 03-09

- Holocaust Participation by German Diplomats (Time.com)
"One of the pillars of Germany's political establishment, the Foreign Ministry, was a "criminal organization" during the Nazi era, and the country's diplomats played a far more active role in the Holocaust than was previously acknowledged. Those are some of the troubling findings of a new 880-page government-sponsored report, called "The Ministry and the Past: German Diplomats in the Third Reich and the Federal Republic," which has shaken the nation. Drawn from thousands of historical documents, the report, due to be officially released on Thursday, makes for uncomfortable reading as it debunks a long cherished belief that Germany's Foreign Ministry was a hive of resistance to the Nazi regime and that German diplomats were not involved in the mass extermination of millions of Jews in Nazi death camps."
