Jari Litmanen

Jari Olavi Litmanen is a Finnish former footballer. He was the first-choice captain of the Finland national team between 1996 and 2008 in an international career that ran from 1989 to 2010. Litmanen is considered to be Finland's greatest football player of all time He was chosen as the best Finnish player of the last 50 years by the Football Association of Finland in the UEFA Jubilee Awards in November 2003, he finished 42nd in the 100 Greatest Finns voting in 2004. The Association of Football Statisticians' compendium of'Greatest Ever Footballers' listed Litmanen as the 53rd best footballer ever. In Finland, he is called "Litti", which dates from his early years, is known as "Kuningas". During his club career, Litmanen represented Reipas, HJK, MyPa and Lahti in Finland, Ajax, Liverpool, Hansa Rostock and Malmö FF abroad. Once considered one of the best attacking midfielders in the world, he became the first Finnish footballing superstar while playing for Ajax in the mid-1990s, winning the Champions League in 1995, the peak year of his career.

His career was marred by injuries, he was unable to repeat the success of his Ajax years either at Barcelona or Liverpool finding himself on the bench, despite some impressive performances for the latter. Writing about Litmanen in 2009, Paul Simpson, former FourFourTwo editor, went as far as to assert that "his career has not been worthy of his talent". Litmanen made his first-team debut for Reipas in Finland's top division Mestaruussarja at the age of 16 in 1987. After four seasons with Reipas he moved to HJK, Finland's biggest club, in 1991. A year he joined MyPa, where he was coached by Harri Kampman, who introduced him to his agent, the late Heikki Marttinen. Litmanen did not win any medals in the Finnish league, but he did win the Finnish Cup with MyPa in July 1992 in a 2–0 win over FF Jaro in the final at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium, his performance in the cup final, including a goal, convinced a scout of Ajax that the club should sign him. "For me, he was the player," the scout told Finnish television.

His transfer took place during the same summer, he did not complete the Finnish football season with MyPa. Before his move to Ajax, Litmanen had failed to earn a contract with the Romanian club Dinamo București. A number of European clubs, including Barcelona, Leeds United and PSV, had shown an interest in him, but in the end it was Ajax that bought him. David Endt, the Ajax team manager in the 1990s, described his first impression of Litmanen to the Finnish broadcasting corporation YLE in 2010: During 1992–93, his first season at Ajax, he played in the reserves; the Ajax manager Louis van Gaal was not overly impressed with him, but the team physiotherapist suggested using him as a stand-in for Dennis Bergkamp, injured at the time. Van Gaal liked what he saw, knowing that Bergkamp was about to leave for Internazionale, he announced that Litmanen would be Bergkamp's successor, something that people in Litmanen's native Finland found difficult to believe; this turned out to be true, he inherited from Bergkamp the famous number 10 shirt, given to playmakers.

He went on to score 26 goals in the 1993–94 season, becoming the league's top scorer, leading Ajax to the title. He was voted Footballer of the Year in the Netherlands in 1993. Litmanen was one of the star players of Van Gaal's team that won three consecutive Dutch championships and reached the UEFA Champions League final twice in a row. From the beginning of the 1994–95 season to the middle of the 1995–96 season, Ajax went undefeated in both the Eredivisie and the Champions League; when Ajax beat Milan in the 1995 Champions League final, Litmanen became the first Finnish player to win the European Cup/Champions League. In 1995–96, he was the Champions League top scorer with nine goals, including the equaliser in the final against Juventus, which Ajax lost on penalties. In 1995, he won the Intercontinental Cup against Grêmio and came third in the voting for the Ballon d'Or, having finished eighth the previous year. Litmanen spent seven years in Amsterdam, winning four Dutch championships and three KNVB Cups, scored a total of 129 goals, 91 of them in the league.

He is the club's top scorer in European competition with 26 goals in 54 matches. Litmanen has the honour of being one of just three players presented in a special video featurette at the Ajax Museum; the other two are Johan Cruyff. Frank Rijkaard, Litmanen's teammate in the 1993–94 and 1994–95 seasons, once said, "Dennis Bergkamp was brilliant for Ajax but the best No.10 we had was Jari." In his time at Ajax, some fans called him "Merlin" because of the magic. But his proneness to injury earned Litmanen the name "The Man of Glass", injuries hampered his seasons at Ajax causing him to miss many games, his injury problems were to worsen. In 1999, Litmanen was reunited with Louis van Gaal at Barcelona, one of several former Ajax players recruited by Van Gaal in his time as manager. Litmanen's stint with the club was plagued by injuries. An article in The Observer in April 2000 likened him to Pope John Paul II, in that he was "making few appearances and looking more frail each time". Litmanen failed to adapt to his ne

Marcel Ophuls

Marcel Ophuls is a documentary film maker and former actor, best known for his films The Sorrow and the Pity and Hôtel Terminus: The Life and Times of Klaus Barbie. Ophuls was born in Frankfurt, the son of Hildegard Wall and the director Max Ophüls, his family left Germany in 1933 following the coming to power of the Nazi Party and settled in Paris, France. Following the invasion of France by Germany in May 1940 they were forced to flee to the Vichy zone, remaining in hiding for over a year before crossing the Pyrenees into Spain in order to travel to the United States, arriving there in December 1941. Marcel attended Hollywood High School Occidental College, Los Angeles, he spent a brief period serving in a U. S. Army theatrical unit in Japan in 1946 studied at the University of California, Berkeley. Ophuls became a naturalized citizen of France in 1938, of the United States in 1950; when the family returned to Paris in 1950 Marcel became an assistant to Julien Duvivier and Anatole Litvak, worked on John Huston's Moulin Rouge and his father's Lola Montès.

Through François Truffaut, Ophuls got to direct an episode of the portmanteau film Love at Twenty. There followed the commercial hit Banana Peel, a detective film starring Jeanne Moreau and Jean-Paul Belmondo. With a slump in box-office fortunes, Ophuls turned to television news reporting and a documentary on the Munich crisis of 1938: Munich, he embarked on his examination of France under Nazi occupation, The Sorrow and the Pity. Although he enjoyed making entertaining films, Ophuls became identified as a documentarian, using a characteristically sober interview style to resolve disparate experiences into a persuasive argument. A Sense of Loss looked at Northern Ireland, The Memory of Justice was an ambitious comparison of US policy in Vietnam and the atrocities of the Nazis. Disagreements with his French backers over interpretation led Ophuls to smuggle a print to New York where it was shown privately. Legal wrangles left him disappointed and financially broke, Ophuls turned to university lecturing.

In the mid-1970s, he began producing documentaries for CBS and ABC. His feature documentary Hotel Terminus: The Life and Times of Klaus Barbie won an Academy Award; every year the IDFA in Amsterdam screens an acclaimed filmmaker's 10 favorite films. In 2007, Iranian filmmaker Maziar Bahari selected The Sorrow and the Pity for his top ten classics from the history of documentary. At the 65th Berlin International Film Festival in February 2015 Ophuls received the Berlinale Camera award for his life work. In 2014, Ophuls began crowd-sourcing funds for his new film Unpleasant Truths, about the continuing Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories, to be co-directed with Israeli filmmaker Eyal Sivan. In part, the film seeks to focus on possible links between the 2014 Israeli war on Gaza and the rise in anti-Semitism in Europe as well as whether "Islamophobia is the new anti-Semitism." Marcel, like his father Max, prefers not to use the German umlaut in his name. Ophuls senior removed the umlaut when he took French citizenship, Marcel has adopted the same spelling.

Ludwig and Maria Knapp

Ludwig Knapp and his wife Maria Knapp are both Austrian Righteous Among the Nations. In 1944, Ludwig Knapp and his wife Maria were the owner of a sawmill and an agricultural farm in Weitra in Gmünd in Lower Austria; the couple saw. Their business suffered a shortage of workers, so they decided to employ Jewish forced labourers in order to save them from deportation. Knapp received permission to employ 24 Jews in his sawmill; as he knew that the old people and children were not able to work and were vulnerable, he deliberately chose seven old people and four children. Knapp and Maria cared for their workers, they considered their age and their health status in the working time and offered them warm food and clothing. In April 1945, Knapp discovered that the authorities had decided to deport his workers to Theresienstadt, he knew. Ludwig and Maria Knapp wanted to avoid this at all costs, they told them to hide in a nearby forest. Ludwig went with his family on a short trip to Vienna; when he returned two days he reported to the Gestapo that all the Jewish workers had fled during his absence.

During his interrogation he could not explain why they had succeeded in their escape, but he offered to join the search for his “missing” workers. He led the Gestapo in the wrong direction; when the danger was past, the Knapps led the Jews out of the woods and hid them in their house until the war was over.
