NGC 281

NGC 281, IC 11 or Sh2-184 is a bright emission nebula and part of an H II region in the northern constellation of Cassiopeia and is part of the Milky Way's Perseus Spiral Arm. This 20×30 arcmin sized nebulosity is associated with open cluster IC 1590, several Bok globules and the multiple star, B 1, it collectively forms Sh2-184. A recent distance from radio parallaxes of water masers at 22 GHz made during 2014 is estimated it lies 2.82±0.20 kpc. from us. Colloquially, NGC 281 is known as the Pacman Nebula for its resemblance to the video game character. E. E. Barnard discovered this nebula in August 1883, who described it as "a large faint nebula diffuse." Multiple star'B 1' or β 1 was discovered by S. W. Burnham, whose bright component is identified as the luminous O6 spectral class star, HD 5005 or HIP 4121, it consists of an 8th-magnitude primary with four companions at distances between 1.4 and 15.7 arcsec. There has been no appreciable change in this quintuple system since the first measures were made in 1875.

The nebula region is visible in amateur telescopes from dark sky locations. In his book Deep Sky Wonders, Walter Scott Houston describes the appearance of the nebula in small telescopes: "There was a faint glow in the immediate vicinity of the multiple star, with an occasional impression of a much larger nebulosity... Its surface brightness was much less than that of M33 in Triangulum or NGC 205, the distant companion of the Andromeda galaxy."

Majdanek trials

The Majdanek trials were a series of consecutive war-crime trials held in Poland and in Germany during and after World War II, constituting the overall longest Nazi war crimes trial in history spanning over 30 years. The first judicial trial of Majdanek extermination camp officials took place from November 27, 1944, to December 2, 1944, in Lublin, Poland; the last one, held at the District Court of Düsseldorf began on November 26, 1975, concluded on June 30, 1981. It was West Germany's most expensive trial, lasting 474 sessions. A number of former high ranking SS men, camp officials, camp guards, SS staff were arraigned before the courts on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity committed at Majdanek in the period between October 1, 1941, July 22, 1944. Notably, only 170 Nazis who served at Majdanek had been prosecuted at all, of the 1,037 camp personnel known by name. Half of the defendants charged by the West German justice system were set free after complaining of aches and pains in detention, acquitted of killing.

By contrast, those tried earlier by Poland were found guilty. During the 34 months of camp operation, more than 79,000 people were murdered at Majdanek main camp alone and between 95,000 and 130,000 people in the entire Majdanek, system including several subcamps; some 18,000 Jews were killed at Majdanek on November 3, 1943, during the largest single-day, single-camp massacre of the Holocaust, named Harvest Festival. Notably, two KL Majdanek concentration camp commandants were put on trial by the SS themselves in the course of the camp operation because of what Majdanek was merely a storage depot for gold and furs stolen from trainloads of Holocaust victims at death factories in Belzec and Treblinka. Both SS men were charged with wholesale stealing from the Third Reich to become rich. Karl-Otto Koch was executed by firing squad on April 5, 1945. Retreating Germans did not have time to destroy the facility, it remained the best preserved example of a Holocaust death camp in history, with intact gas chambers and crematoria.

The advancing Soviets were shocked into disbelief after discovering it, overestimated the total number of victims. A group of six members of Majdanek personnel – who had not managed to escape – were arraigned before the Soviet-Polish Special Criminal Court following the camp's liberation of July 23, 1944. After the trial, deliberations which lasted from November 27, 1944 to December 2, 1944 all accused were found guilty of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide, sentenced to death by hanging, they included SS-Obersturmführer Anton Thernes, SS-Hauptsturmführer Wilhelm Gerstenmeier, SS-Oberscharführer Hermann Vögel, Kapo Edmund Pohlmann, SS-Rottenführer Theodor Schöllen and Kapo Heinrich Stalp, all of whom were executed by hanging on December 3, 1944 except for Pohlmann, who had committed suicide the night before. The series of trials which took place between 1946 and 1948 in Poland – referred to as the Second trial of Majdanek – consisted of trials of many kinds; some 95 SS-men guards, were charged with war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Seven of the defendants were given the death penalty. The most prominent of them was Elsa Oberaufseherin of the women and children camp division, she was responsible for the selections to gas chambers. Ehrich was found guilty of all charges, hanged in July 1948. Ehrich made an attempt to launch a Nazi brothel in 1943, but the project was abandoned before fruition after one of her slave sex-workers was diagnosed with typhus. Most other SS men were sentenced from 2 to 12 years' imprisonment; some of the more prominent defendants in the 1946–1948 series of trials included over 60 SS-Schütze camp guards. The multiple proceedings were held in Lublin, as well as in Radom and Świdnica, Kraków, Toruń and in Warsaw, where the last appellate court case of Jacob Gemmel took place in November 1950. At the Third Majdanek Trial held between November 26, 1975 and June 30, 1981 before a West German Court at Düsseldorf sixteen defendants were arraigned. Five were cleared of all charges, two released due to ill health, one died of old age, eight were found guilty.

They were sentenced to 3 to 12 years imprisonment. The 3rd Majdanek trial was preceded by the Treblinka Trials at Düsseldorf in 1964 and 1970; the Majdanek trial lasted for six years, concluded on June 30, 1981. There were insufficient grounds to lay charges against other suspects, according to prosecution. Notably, the Camp deputy commandant Arnold Strippel implicated in the torture and killing of many dozens of prisoners received a nominal three-and-a-half year sentence, he received 121,500 Deutsche Mark reimbursement for the loss of earnings and his social security contributions, which he used to purchase a condominium in Frankfurt, which he occupied until his death. In 1989 Karl-Friedrich Höcker was sentenced for his actions in Majdanek. Auschwitz Trial held in Kraków, Poland in 1947. Tried 40 SS staff of the Auschwitz concentration camp Belsen Trial Belzec Trial before the 1st Munich District Court in the mid-1960s, of eight SS-men of the Belzec extermination camp Chełmno Trials of the Chełmno extermination camp personnel, held in Poland and in Germany.
