I was sent an email recently, from a friend in Stockholm, Sweden, expressing concern about a note that had been sent to all parents of the school their children attended.

This note was not officially sanctioned by the school, nor the education authority, so cannot be viewed as being official policy, but is concerning nonetheless, as it addresses something that has become a serious issue in a number of European countries.

A school in a small town in Germany, however, has taken a more formal stance and it’s head teacher has sent out a  simarly worded letter to parents, asking them to ensure that their daughters ‘cover up their arms and legs for their own protection’ – against local Syrian “refugees.”

In this letter, Martin Thalhammer, the head of the Willhelm-Diess-Gymnasium, in the town of Pocking, Bavaria, which has a population of around 15,000 – female students have been asked to refrain from wearing “revealing clothes” because refugee accommodation has been set up next to the schools gym.

School Letter 1

Hundreds of Syrians have been housed in Pocking, as part of the ongoing plan to accommodate the 400,000 “asylum applications” expected this year, to join the 202,815 who have already re-located to Germany as a whole.

The headmaster’s letter also warned the female students against wearing immodest clothes and announced that the schools gymnasium had been shut down as a ‘precautionary measure’ – and the physical education classes would be moved to a neighbouring primary school.

“The Syrian citizens are mainly Muslim and speak Arabic. The refugees are marked by their own culture. Because our school is directly next to where they are staying, modest clothing must be adhered to. Revealing tops or blouses, shorts or miniskirts could lead to misunderstandings”.

These “misunderstandings” to which the letter refers are, of course, unwarranted attention or even sexual attacks upon the teenagers, as has happened elsewhere in European countries where large numbers of mainly male, ‘refugees’ have settled.

In Sweden for example, where as I mentioned earlier I have friends who initially contacted me with very real concerns, the number of rapes has increased so dramatically over the last few years, that the country has now been officially classified as ‘The Rape Capital of the West’, and also holds the unenviable position of being second in the world, behind Lesotho in Southern Africa, for this type of offence.

The letter continues:

“For the refugees, access to the school gardens and buildings is strictly forbidden. The same goes for the school grounds during the day. The number of teachers on duty during class breaks has also been increased”.

The letter, finished with a warning to the children, which some parents have justifiably viewed as being delivered in a somewhat threatening manner, in which the children were told to refrain from:

“Direct eyeballing, ogling or taking pictures”, and went on to say: “Derogatory or racial remarks cannot and will not be tolerated in any way.”

A few years ago there was a scandal concerning the black market sale of human body parts on Ebay.

Not really shocking when you consider that parts of the human body have always held great value in certain parts of the world.

A human skull, for example, would be very valuable to a voodoo priest, a shrunken one even more so.

One South American witchdoctor was reputed to have had a fence around his house made of human spines.

He accumulated these spines by killing a number of college students by slowly peeling off their skin while they were still alive.

He kept the other body parts in a Naganga, a large metal pot, similar to a witch’s kettle.

The reason he tortured his victims was because their screams of agony somehow increased the power of the kettle.

He would then sell bits of the human or animal bodies in the Naganga to the local drug dealers who believed that the charms made them invincible to the police bullets that were usually flying their way.

In the UK a few centuries ago, unscrupulous doctors and medical students paid grave robbers for human cadavers so they could anatomise them.

The so-called ‘Body Snatchers’ operated under cover of darkness right under the noses of the authorities in order to satisfy the need for cadavers by the Medical Profession.


It was against the law to dissect a human body at the time and this method was the only way that they could learn how the human body worked.

Fresh bodies could command a very good price, so were a very lucrative source of income to those who were prepared to get their hands dirty.

But that practice died out centuries ago right?

You would have thought so, but as almost everything these days is seen as a marketable commodity, you could be forgiven for thinking that anything now has a price.

How about human body fat?

The thing that most people have trying to get rid of for most of their life, has, as a source of income never really waned.

Much like Burke & Hare, the infamous ‘Body Snatchers’ who operated around Edinburgh in the 1800’s, these modern day purveyors of human body parts also murder people just to carve the fat out of them.

So what is the destination of the product obtained from this murderous practice?

It is sold to international cosmetic companies…… Where there is a great demand apparently.

What a nice thought it must be, that the next time you put on an eyeliner, some of it’s ingredients may have been extracted from a corpse.

Oh well, I guess that’s slightly better than using animals, I suppose….
