 Kurt von Schleicher - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kurt von Schleicher (4 April 1882–30 June 1934) was a German general and the last Chancellor of Germany during the era of the Weimar Republic.
Eventually, Schleicher, who established a close relationship with President Paul von Hindenburg, came into conflict with Brüning and Groener, and his intrigues were largely responsible for their fall in May of 1932.
He was not as conservative as Papen, however, as evidenced in a 1932 radio address in which he bluntly announced his unambiguous opposition to either a military dictatorship or a puppet regime to be backed by military force.

 BMU - Press 11.05.2004 : Waste water treatment in Germany exemplary within the EU
Germany has achieved one of the important goals set by the EU waste water directive of 1991.
Germany's successes in waste water treatment and its ten years of experience in implementing the Directive cannot hide the fact that enormous challenges had to be met, not only in the "new" states (of the former East Germany) but also in the "old" states.
The Commission notes: "Germany and Austria have fulfilled the requirements of the Directive in virtually all respects." The findings of the report show that although, generally speaking, improvements have been achieved in the European Union, there are still huge delays in many Member States, for example in the designation of so-called sensitive areas.

Germany's forests are in an "alarming" condition with nearly three-quarters of all trees suffering from some kind of damage, according to an official government report.

Yesterday Michael Hopf, a spokesman for Greenpeace Germany, said that the fact Germany's forests had not yet disappeared did not mean there wasn't a problem.
