Volk also occurs in German socialist usage, as in the Volkspolizei (People's Police) or "Volkseigene Betriebe" (People's-Owned Business) of the former German Democratic Republic.

In addition, the State sought to refute Volk's statement to the police that Swim's injuries were caused when she "bit her own lip." Volk objected, arguing that the incident with Swim differed from his assaults on his former wife and, therefore, evidence as to his prior assaults would confuse the jury.
Volk then "shoved his fingers down [her] throat, scratched the inside of [her] throat, pulled them back up and ripped [her] tongue on the way back out of [her] mouth." The tear to Swim's tongue occurred when Volk grabbed it and pulled it to the side.
Volk testified that the incident began when Swim "cracked a beer open" and it "triggered" him to approach her and push her backwards.

 Borzoi Reader | Authors | Patricia Volk
Patricia Volk’s family is as American (background: Austrian-Jewish) as “Rhapsody in Blue.” They came to these shores determined to make their mark; each of them is a piquant morsel of history.

For three generations, just about every Volk and Morgen (with the exception of Uncle Al, who had an eleven-year affair with Aunt Lil and then refused to marry her because she wasn’t a virgin) has, no matter what the circumstances, exhibited a terrifyingly positive attitude.

 Stuffed:VOLK, PATRICIA:0375724990:eCampus.com
Patricia Volk's delicious memoir lets us into her big, crazy, loving, cheerful, infuriating and wonderful family, where you're never just hungry -- you're starving to death, and you're never just full -- you're stuffed.
Volk's family fed New York City for one hundred years -- from 1888 when her great-grandfather introduced pastrami to America, until 1988 when her father closed his garment center restaurant.
But as seductively as Volk evokes the cuisine, Stuffed is at heart a paean to her quirky, vibrant relatives: her grandmother with the "best legs in Atlantic City"; her grandfather, who invented the wrecking ball; her larger-than-life father, who sculpted snow thrones when other dads were struggling with snowmen.
