1. ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY
20th November 1946
The Nuremburg Trials begin
The Nuremberg trials (German: die Nürnberger Prozesse) were a series of military tribunals, held by the Allied forces after World War II, which were most notable for the prosecution of prominent members of the political, military, and economic leadership of Nazi Germany who allegedly planned, carried out, or otherwise participated in The Holocaust and other war crimes. The trials were held in the city of Nuremberg, Germany.
The first, and best known of these trials was the trial of the major war criminals before the International Military Tribunal (IMT). Held between 20 November 1945 and 1 October 1946, the Tribunal was given the task of trying 23 of the most important political and military leaders of the Third Reich, though one of the defendants, Martin Bormann, was tried in absentia, while another, Robert Ley, committed suicide within a week of the trial's commencement. Bormann, officially missing, had died unrecognized during the Soviet assault on Berlin in 1945
Twelve of the accused were sentenced to death: Herman Goring, Martin Bormann, Hans Frank, Wilhelm Frick, Alfred Jodl, Ernst Kaltenbrunner, Wilhelm Keitel, Joachim von Ribbentrop, Alfred Rosenberg, Fritz Sauckel, Arthur Seyss-Inquart, and Julius Streicher. Hermann Göring committed suicide using a potassium cyanide capsule the night before his scheduled hanging. Seven received prison sentences (ranging from 10 years to life in prison): Rudolf Hess, Karl Donitz, Albert Speer, Wlather Funk, Baron Konstantin Von Neurath, Erich Raeder, and Baldur Von Schirach, three were acquitted: Hans Fritzsche, Franz Von Papen and Dr. Hjalmar Sclacht, and two, Gustav Krupp (medically unfit) and Robert Ley (suicide) were not charged.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
A further sense of relief was that we can now conclude that Missus knee had suffered a strain and nothing more serious. The doctors, though I was displeased with them at the time, were absolutely right in their diagnoses.
So with everything back to normal, it's a case of of simply getting on with it gratefully. In particular, to be intuitively guided. Both in good times and bad, a quiet mind functioning at the "machine code" subconscious level has proved beyond doubt to be best for my wellbeing. The hard part is in keeping the focus up in the face of distraction to enable me to stay in this mental mode. As Bruce Lee described it, "not thinking yet not dreaming". That is simply a case of persistence, practice, and keeping it as Priority #1. It is only in this state that I'm truly conscious and fully alive.
