Johan van Lom (Dutch collaborator)

Johan van Lom was a Dutch lawyer who worked with the Dutch resistance during World War II and toward the end of the war collaborated with the Nazis, allowing them to arrest other members of the Dutch resistance in return for the freedom of a family friend. His betrayal of Teus van Vliet led to the arrest and subsequent execution of Walraven van Hall and leader of the resistance. Van Lom himself was executed by members of the resistance. Van Lom was unable to finish his studies during the German occupation, he found work with the lawyer Jan de Pont, whose firm, in The Hague and Amsterdam, defended Jewish families and members of the Dutch resistance. In that capacity he met a number of high-ranking resistance members, including Wim van Norden publisher of the illegal newspaper Het Parool. De Pont managed to get a considerable number of Parool people released after a trial, the so-called tweede Parool-proces, before the German Obergericht at Utrecht in 1944. After the trial, van Norden asked de Pont to assist him in setting up a pension fund for resistance fighters.

De Pont declined because he wanted at all costs to avoid being associated with illegaliteit, directing him instead to van Lom, an idealistic and newly married young man. Why van Lom subsequently turned collaborator is a matter of contention among journalists and family members. According to this theory, van Lom gave up information that led to the arrest of a number of resistance members in exchange for the freedom of the young woman, he had negotiated with Friedrich Viebahn of the Sicherheitsdienst in Amsterdam that none of the people arrested were to be executed. Van Lom fled Amsterdam after the arrests in January 1945, returned in March. After a meeting with a resistance member he was abducted and interrogated, sentenced to die by poisoning. Either he refused to drink the poison or it did not have the desired effect and he was despatched with a shot to the neck, his body dumped in the Keizersgracht, he was 26 years old

2015 Greater Western Sydney Giants season

The Greater Western Sydney Giants' 2015 season was its 4th season in the Australian Football League. The 2015 AFL season was the 119th season of the VFL/AFL competition since its inception in 1897. Spotless Stadium once again acted as the club's primary home ground, hosting eight of the club's eleven home games, with three games played at their secondary home ground, StarTrack Oval in Canberra; the three matches at StarTrack Oval were against Melbourne, the Gold Coast Suns and Geelong in rounds 2, 4 and 17 respectively. Because Spotless Stadium was unavailable for the first five rounds of the regular season due to its required use by the Sydney Royal Easter Show, the club played its first two home games in Canberra, while the first of the two annual Sydney Derbies against the Sydney Swans were played at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Round 3, with the Giants hosting the return fixture in Round 21; the club played Carlton, Gold Coast, Melbourne, St Kilda and Sydney twice during the regular season, traveled interstate ten times.

Leon Cameron continued as the club's head coach for the second consecutive season, while Callan Ward and Phil Davis continued as the club's co-captains for the fourth consecutive season. Both have held their respective positions since 2012, respectively; the Giants underwent an overhaul of their playing list during the off-season, bringing in experienced players Joel Patfull and Ryan Griffen from the Brisbane Lions and Western Bulldogs during the trade period. In addition to Josh Hunt and Stephen Gilham announcing their retirements shortly before the conclusion of the regular season, the club offloaded several key players, including the previous year's number one draft pick, Tom Boyd, who wanted to be traded to the Western Bulldogs after only one season at the Giants, Kristian Jaksch and Mark Whiley, who were both traded to Carlton, Jonathan Giles, who requested a trade home to South Australia but ended up at Essendon, Sam Frost, traded to Melbourne after requesting a trade back to his home state.

Beyond Birmingham, the district provides public school services for Southfield Township, which encompasses the villages of Beverly Hills, Bingham Farms, Franklin; the current superintendent is Mark Dziatczak. In 1834, the first "district" school in Birmingham opened; this school was housed in John Hamilton's old log house at Hamilton Road and Old Woodward Ave. Rev. Lemuel M. Partridge served as the teacher. In 1855, the brick "Old Red Schoolhouse" was built at Maple and Southfield roads and served as a school until 1869; the Allen House, part of the Birmingham Historical Museum, now stands. A new school became the site of Birmingham's first high school; that first high school became known as Baldwin High School in 1951, Birmingham High School, in 1959, Seaholm High School. The former Baldwin High School became Birmingham's first middle school. Through the 1930s other districts had their own elementary schools and sent paid tuition students to Baldwin High School in the Birmingham district.

Throughout the 1940s, other school districts in the area were encouraged by the state to join Birmingham's school district. Southfield joined in 1943, Bloomfield Village in 1946, Franklin in 1945 and Walnut Lake in 1947. Birmingham Public Schools runs eight elementary schools, one 3–8th grade school, two middle schools, two high schools, one alternative high school; each elementary school hosts a half day preschool program and the district runs a preschool program out of Midvale BPS Early Childcare Center.
