Pestalozzi-Stiftung Hamburg

The Pestalozzi-Stiftung Hamburg is a social and charitable organization founded in 1847 in Hamburg, German Confederation. Over a period of more than hundred years, the organisation ran a children's foster home which changed its location several times within Hamburg. Constant adjustments have taken place over the last decades; the organisation has maintained facilities and projects in many parts of Hamburg and to a lesser extent in Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein. Its main goal is to provide support and counselling for children and families, it maintains day care facilities for children and facilities for adults with disabilities and mental illnesses. The organisation's work depends to a large extent on public funds and owns only a limited amount of capital assets which are not used for funding external projects; the Pestalozzi-Stiftung Hamburg appeals to the convictions of Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi whose aim in education was "to strengthen the human being" and to move him to a point where he is "able to help himself".

The organisation is based on the idea of offering people the means to attain the ability of "help to self-help". The Pestalozzi-Stiftung Hamburg was founded on 12 January 1846; the idea to establish a charity foundation was born during the celebration of the 100 years commemoration in honour of Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi. The charity was initiated by the Masonic' lodge "Zur Brudertreue"; the intention was to provide support for orphan children whose parents lead a destructive or abusive lifestyle and in situations which show a degradation and hazard of the children's moral and physical state. The idea was to take the children out of their family and raise them as free-thinking human beings in an enlightened spirit based on Pestalozzi's ideas and methods; the charity created an aid organization in the form of a children's foster home which would take in neglected children when families could not care for them anymore. The first children's home was established on 8 August 1847 in Hamburg, in the district Billwerder and became a shelter for 32 children.

In 1865 the foundation was laid for a new and bigger facility in the district Barmbeck on the Hufnerstraße. The number of places for children rose to 78. Due to the urban development of Hamburg the construction of Barmbek station as well as the necessity for more space within the home, the children's home had to move to another location again; the new children's home which could take in 100 children was inaugurated on 29 August 1906, in the district Volksdorf. In 1930, the Pestalozzi-Stiftung Hamburg had to move another time to the district Ohlstedt, where a part of the facilities has been used as a residential home until today. During World War II, the director of the children's foster home, Elisabeth Schleuß and the chairman Hugo Poppe behaved restrained towards the prevailing political convictions, and, noticeable in terms of the children's education; the attitude was reflected in the fact. Furthermore, ideological ideas or songs which glorified the national consciousness or the fighting spirit of the army were not spread at any time in the children's home.

In 1943 the imperial governor Karl Kaufmann arranged a confiscation of the main building so that the children's hospital of Rothenburgsort, bombed and destroyed could be moved into the building of the children's foster home and the Pestalozzi children had to move out of their house. The children's home was saved from closing and could continue its work only under considerable restrictions with twenty out of forty children who were housed in the cramped accommodations of the adjoining building. After the war, in 1947, the Pestalozzi-Stiftung Hamburg received its property back and could again accommodate 40 children, yet due to the monetary reform in 1948, the assets had become valueless, the biggest part of the real estate had to be sold little by little for the maintenance of operation. Moreover, the following years were marked by structural difficulties. Throughout the years, the charity has been changing its shape, it has broadened its range of facilities in the field of child and family services, as well as the care for people with handicaps.

Over the years the concepts and practical offers have been developed due to historical and social changes and adjusted to the newly arising circumstances. Today the headquarters is settled in the district St. Georg; the classical idea of a home for children has been converted into various regional facilities for children, youths and people with handicaps. The facilities are spread throughout the city of Hamburg, as well as the states of Schleswig-Holstein and Lower Saxony; the philosophy of the Pestalozzi-Stiftung Hamburg is based on the values and insights of its eponym, Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi. The charity aims to support people in difficult circumstances providing help in their daily life tasks; the basic idea of the charity work is to provide people "the help to self-help". In education and upbringing the idea is that youths should not be forced into a preset mould, rather the initial development of the original vigour should be supported and facilitated; the essence of the charity's work is described well in the following quotation by Pestalozzi: "Only through one´s heart can the heart of another human being be lead and the love of one´s heart is revealed through care and considerate deeds."

The daily charity work rests upon the fundamentals of appreciation, benevolence and self-determination. Employees of the Pestalozzi-Stiftung Hamburg act according to the principles of Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi, his motivation was based on his own experience of a

Moll was author of many scientific studies and books on both medical and social care for new-borns and children, he founded social services to orphans and women with children. Leopold Moll was born on March 2, 1877 into a Jewish family at what was known as Böhmisch Leipa, his father was a master butcher, running this trade just like his father. Moll studied primary and secondary school in his birthplace, went to the German University in Prague to study medicine, which he finished in 1902, he worked as an assistant to Julius Pohl at the Institute of Pharmacology in Prague. In 1904–1910, he was an assistant to paediatrician Alois Epstein at the Prague University Children’s Hospital, where he became acquainted with the issues of infant nutrition and nutritional disorders, which became his lifelong focus. In 1909, he habilitated at Prague University with the thesis'Clinical Importance of the Phosphorus Excretion in Urine of Infants'.

Shortly afterwards, Moll left for Vienna. After arrival in Vienna, he attracted substantial attention with his plans to introduce systematic care for mothers and new-borns, in 1910 he was commissioned to build the Imperial Central Institute for Maternal and Infant Care in Vienna-Glanzing; this project was to be built with funding of 2 million Austrian crowns donated by people for the 60th birthday of Emperor Franz Joseph I, as a model project for the monarchy. The institute opened in 1915 and Moll remained, until his death, its administrative and medical director, as well as founder of an professional school for nurses; these so-called'Moll sisters' contributed to spreading his style of work and ideas in care for mothers and infants. Moll published his ideas and scientific findings in the fields of dietetic issues in physiological infants and children with absorption disorders. In clinical practice, his name was associated with the used calcium Moll milk, almond milk and'keksmilch', he was one of the first paediatricians to focus on the nutrition of premature infants.

Through these foundations, mothers with young children, whose husbands had been conscripted or served in the army, were provided with material support to secure better and healthier nutrition for their children, he promoted the introduction of the system of guardianship, or foster care, which he considered much better for raising children that placement in orphanages. He took them there for recreation. In 1921, he founded the'Unified Health Insurance for Children Endangered by Tuberculosis' renamed'for Children with Endangered Health'.

Def FX

Def FX was an Australian band created by Sean Lowry in 1990 and included Fiona Horne on lead vocals, Blake Gardiner on guitar and Martyn Basha on bass - the band had no drummer. They released four albums, Light Speed Collision, Ritual Eternal, Majick before disbanding in April 1997. For United States releases and touring they used Definition FX as their band name to avoid confusion with named groups. Top 50 ARIA hit "Psychoactive Summer" is one example of Def FX's music, combining elements of electronica and heavy-metal instrumentations and grunge vocals and pop, their music throughout their career can be described as a fusion of elements of psychedelia, grunge and heavy metal, commercial pop and in their early days reggae and disco. Basha and Horne resurrected Def FX for touring in 2012 and 2013. Def FX were formed in 1990 in Sydney with the line-up of Martyn Basha on bass guitar, Blake Gardner on lead guitar, Fiona Horne on lead vocals and Sean Lowry on record player with a padlock on it, sequencers and samples.

According to Australian musicologist, Ian McFarlane, their "intention from the outset was to mix energetic dance beats with hardcore grungy rock." & electronic dance music." Larry Van Kriedt was a "hidden fifth member" on saxophone and sequencers. It featured the song, "Surfers of the Mind", which Joanna Palmer of Tharunka described as "a violent whirlpool of high-voltage house metal where puts her larynx through a militant aerobic workout, while the cool delivery of's 21st century gospel raps around her." The track appeared on national radio station, Triple J's listeners' poll for 1991. They toured Australia, promoted it with the band's first music video. Water was produced by Nick Mainsbridge. At the ARIA Music Awards of 1992 the EP was nominated for Best Independent Release and Producer of the Year, they followed with a second EP, Surge, in November, which included the track, "Under the Blue". A third EP, included the track, "Sex/Game/Sucker". Gardner was replaced on guitar by Dave Stein late in 1992.

Lowry summarised the group's attitude to signing with a major label, "It was always important to stay independent long enough to set the parameters of the band, so that anyone who came on board would be clear what the band was like and how it should be marketed."Their first album, Light Speed Collision, was released in November 1992 in a vinyl-only format via Phantom Records. The album included guest vocals by Margaret Urlich. For its United States version, on RCA/BMG in June 1993, the band used the name, Definition FX, to avoid confusion with a US band, Das EFX, they added material from two of their EPs. Lowry explained to Nic Haygarth of The Canberra Times that "People get the misconception that because we're a technology-based band we do a lot of our work and development of songs in the studio, but I suppose what we do there is attempt to transfer the live show to record, we might put up a rough mock-up of a song and start playing it."The second album, released in 1993, is a compilation of three Australian-released EPs Water and Blink as well as a 12-inch single, "Surfers of the Mind".

Baptism featured the track, "Make Your Stash", so rare that Horne had no idea of its existence when presented it for autographing by a dedicated Def FX fan. The single was rather atypical of Def FX, in that it had no cover art and no B-sides, which had characterised their EPs; the band preferred to make each release, be it album or EP, a conceptual work that made full use of the compact disc format that had come into commercial prominence. At the ARIA Music Awards of 1993 Blink was nominated for Best Independent Release. Three more EPs followed No Time for Space Time Disco and Post Moronic. At the end of 1993 Basha had departed and his duties on bass guitar were taken up by Van Kriedt. Post Moronic appeared on the ARIA Singles Chart in the top 50. One of its tracks, "Masses Like Asses", was listed on the Triple J Hottest 100, 1994. Ritual Eternal, their third album, is more experimental: including tracks without standard guitars and others with Charlie McMahon on didgeridoo, who joined Def FX on tour.

It was recorded and produced entirely by Lowry, following the cancellation of their contract with EMI, was issued via independent label Cicada Music and distributed by MDS. McFarlane felt the CD was "over-ambitious". Ritual Eternal introduced their new bass guitarist, Peter Tasker, forced out of the band months and replaced by Sean Fonti. At the ARIA Music Awards of 1995 they were nominated for Best Independent Release for their third album. In November 1995 they issued a single, "Psychoactive Summer", which reached the top 50 on the ARIA Charts, it was followed by their fourth album, Majick, in mid-year, which peaked at No. 21 on the ARIA Albums Chart. It provided four singles; the band dissolved in May of that year with the split announced by Horne on ABC-TV's Saturday morning youth variety show, Recovery. Fiona Horne followed her stint with Def FX with musical releases'Shut Up and Kiss Me' with Paul McDermott and a solo single "Let's Go Out Tonight" before subsequently become a writer, with 11 books, including two autobiographies and guides to her practising of Wiccan rituals
