Incredible images show the everyday life of thousands of Yugoslavian refugees who spent 18 months at an Egyptian camp during World War II
Thousands of Yugoslavians were sent to El Shatt, a United Nations refugee camp in Egypt, during World War II
The camp, located near the Suez Canal in the Sinai desert, was established by the British in summer 1944
More than 30,000 people lived in the refugee camp for a total of 18 months until the war ended in 1946
Now at the camp rests a cemetery with 825 graves for people who did not withstand the camp's conditions

Millions of people are in the ruins of World War II without shelter, food, clothing and medication. In 1945, in the year of despair and hope, the private organization CARE was founded in Washington. 22 American welfare organizations are launching an unprecedented relief effort for Europe - and their donors make them a major success in the history of humanitarian aid.

Nearly ten million CARE packages with food, clothing or tools are also reaching Germany. The packages worth 15 US dollars feed a family for a month and thus literally save lives. Until the packages in the destroyed post-war Germany reach their recipients, they must go a long and arduous way. CARE even supplies lorries with fuel and supplies them with tires to transport the urgently needed packages.

Through CARE, former war-fighters meet their needs in the face of need and do not ask for guilt or national origin. This unexpected assistance has helped many to hope for a new beginning, and from 1946 to 1960 contributed to reconciliation and international understanding. To this day, CARE is committed to the bridge of humanity, which was once also defeated to Germany. source: http://spende.care.de/history.php

Harold Cole (24 January 1906 – 8 January 1946), also known as Harry Cole or Paul Cole, was a British soldier, who assisted and later betrayed the French Resistance during World War II. According to some accounts, he caused significant damage to the Allied cause. Cole was killed while resisting arrest by French law enforcement authorities after the war ended.

On 4 September 1939, after recently being released from prison,[why?] Cole enlisted in the British Army (Serial No. 1877989RE). He was assigned to an engineering unit, the 18th Field Park Company, part of the 4th Infantry Division. His unit was sent to France in late 1939 as a part of the British Expeditionary Force and was stationed in Loison-sous-Lens. Cole was promoted to sergeant, but was taken prisoner by German forces during the Fall of France in mid-1940.

Cole escaped soon afterwards, hiding in Lille and then Marseilles, where he helped establish and operate escape lines with the French Resistance. During this period he was known as "Paul Cole".

In 1941, he was re-captured by German forces. The Gestapo persuaded Cole to collaborate and betray the French Resistance in relation to the escape lines he had helped form in occupied France. He denounced many important figures in the resistance movement, including Ian Garrow and Albert Guerisse of the Pat Line. It is believed Cole betrayed at least 150 members of the French Resistance, of whom 50 were executed by the Gestapo. Deputy Commander Reginald Spooner of Scotland Yard described him as "the worst traitor of the war".

By the end of the war, Cole was wanted by both French and British governments, and was pursued by MI9. He was captured at Bad Saulgau in June 1945 and imprisoned at the SHAEF military prison in Paris. He escaped on 18 November 1945 and a large manhunt was initiated to recapture him.

On 8th January 1946, after receiving a tip-off, French police shot Cole dead after discovering that he had been hiding on the fourth floor of a bar in the Rue de Grenelle in Paris. He was later buried in an unmarked pauper's grave in Paris

Interpreters at the Nuremberg trials, 1946. Since the prosecution of Nazi war criminals was conducted by a group of international lawyers and judges, IBM developed the world’s first simultaneous-translation system, the ancestor of what is used today at institutions like the UN. Speakers even had a system which flashed a yellow light if they needed to slow down for the translators.

The management of all consumer goods introduced in the war is also maintained by the occupation authorities. But the allocation of the rations shown on the food cards is often not secured. The black market is therefore an important factor in everyday survival in the post-war period. Especially city dwellers are dependent on their supply to the black market or the exchange centers. Currencies, jewelery and other commodities are exchanged for food and luxury foods. "Ami cigarettes" are replaced by the worthless Reichsmark as a substitute currency.

From the bicycle hose to the complicated machine is almost everything to get on the black market, provided that you have appropriate counter values to offer. Refugees and bombs, who have nothing to exchange, however, depend solely on the poor food rations.
The attempts of the Allies to prevent black trade through raids and drastic penal sanctions remain unsuccessful. Only the monetary reform of June 1948 and the accompanying normalization of the supply of goods dried the black market.
