Honor for the Jewish patron James Simon



In spite of all the serious talks at the summit of the Group of Eight in St. Petersburg, the US President George W. Bush did not lose his sense of humor. He frightened the German Chancellor Merkel by sneaking up on her from behind and grabbing her neck. The famous European Newspaper Bild-Zeitung (Germany) published this photograph on Tuesday, July 18, 2006, giving the impression of a love attack. But all was really harmless. "It was just a joke", said a German diplomat. For our article, see George W. Bush and Angela Merkel: Barbecue and Politics

*** Spiegel und FAZ auf Hass gegen Arno Breker abboniert, von B. John Zavrel


The glorification of the human being in art is the basic idea for the Olympia Cyclus of Arno Breker. As models, he had crowned Olympic champions. This corresponds to the Olympic spirit of the antiquity. To these sportsmen belongs Ulrike Meyfarth, who won twice the Olympic gold medal in high jump. July 19, 2006 is the 106th birthday anniversary of the artist, who is considered the "Michelangelo of the 20th century."

By the River Piedra, by B. John Zavrel

Dante Climbs from Sin to Repentance, by B. John Zavrel (Part 1 of 6)



Great honor for the famous Jewish patron James Simon in Berlin. His admirers unveiled a portrait relief in bronze in the German Capital. Simon (1851-1932) was the founder of the German Oriental Society and a great supporter of archaeology during the era of the last German Kaiser. One result of his admirable engagement was the discovery of the now world-wide famous bust of the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti.

Consul B. John Zavrel, Director for International Affairs of the European Art Foundation, said: "James Simon is an idol in our time. If we had more of such magnanimous personalities to support art und culture, our society would be on the right track.."The photograph shows the grand-grand-nephew of James Simon, Mr. Tim Simon (right) from USA. He took part in the ceremony in Berlin. Left: Dr. Ulrich Sewekow, leading member of the Deutsche Orient Gesellschaft (DOG). For the article, see Honor for the Jewish patron James Simon
