Hans Schaul

Hans Schaul was a German politician and a long-standing trained Party Newspaper managing-editor. As a younger man he participated on the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War. Schaul was born a few years after the opening of the twentieth century, at Hohensalza, a mid-sized newly industrialised town in the Prussian province of Posen, his father was employed in clerical work. From 1915 he attended a Secondary School in Frankfurt that concentrated on Humanities, he between 1925 and 1928 undertook university level study in Economics and Law at Berlin and Heidelberg. The next three years he spent working as a trainee referendary in the Berlin law courts, it was during this period that in 1929 Hans Schaul married Ruth Rewald. Their daughter, would be born in 1937 and killed in the Auschwitz concentration camp in 1944. Schaul received his practice certificate in 1932, thereafter worked as a lawyer in Berlin. However, January 1933 saw régime change and government policies in Germany became viciously anti-semitic.

Schaul and his wife were Jewish. From 1933 he was barred from working as a lawyer in Germany and fled to France, at one stage working in Paris as a photographer, it was from France that in 1936 he joined the International Brigades, following which he took part in the Spanish Civil War on the anti-Francoist side. At times he was working in the International Brigade's General Inspectorate with the high-profile Italian Communist Luigi Longo. In 1937 Schaul became a member of the Spanish Communist Party working as an editor on several political newspapers, he returned to France in 1938 and worked for the "Support Committee" for German fighters in the Spanish Civil War. The next year, in 1939 he joined the Communist Party of Germany, the surviving leadership of which had escaped to Paris after Germany became a one-party dictatorship back in 1933. War resumed, involving France and Germany, in September 1939: Schaul was interned at Saint-Jean-de-la-Ruelle near Orléans, he spent the next few years in a succession of internment camps, ending up by 1943 in the camp at Djelfa, a few hundred kilometers to the south of Algiers.

The internment camp at Djelfa contained enemies identified by the collaborationist French government, who were Communists and former Spanish Civil War International Brigade members. In 1943 Schaul became a member of a British Labour Corps in Algeria, following the Anglo-American military invasion of the entire region. In 1944 he was able to travel to the Soviet Union. Here he was employed as an instructor for Japanese prisoners of war, he was employed by Moscow's Administrative Head Office for Prisoners of War, working as an instructor at various "Antifascist Schools", notably "Anti-Fascist School 2041" at Talitsa.

1886 Peloponnese earthquake

The 1886 Peloponnese earthquake occurred at 23:27 local time on 27 August. It had an estimated magnitude between 6.8 and 7.3 on the moment magnitude scale and a maximum felt intensity of X on the Mercalli intensity scale. It caused extensive damage in Messenia, with the towns of Filiatra and Marathos both affected. Between 326 and 600 people were killed, it was felt over a wide area from the Khedivate of Egypt to Malta and as far away as Bern and Marseille. The western side of the Peloponnese lies close to the convergent boundary between the Aegean Sea Plate and the African Plate. A major NNW-SSE trending thrust fault is mapped off the coast near the location of the 1886 event and displacement on this may have caused the earthquake; the earthquake occurred at about 23:30 local time, although contemporary reports give a range of times. The shaking lasted for between 60 seconds. Intensities of ≥X on the Mercalli scale have been estimated from contemporary reports, with the highest intensity reported from Filiatra and Gargalianoi on the mainland and on the island of Zakynthos.

The aftershock sequence continued for about twelve months with the largest being on 2 March 1887. A small tsunami was observed along the coast from Filiatra to Pylos with minor inundation. An underwater telegraph cable between Zakynthos and Crete was severed about 47 km south of Zakynthos, suggesting that the tsunami may have been caused by an underwater landslide triggered by the earthquake. Smoke and flames were reported out to sea about half an hour after the earthquake by Captain Aquilina of the La Valette; this matches eyewitness accounts from the mainland of flames seen in the direction of the Strofades. Assuming that both observations were of the same phenomenon, it would be located about 150 km offshore; these observations were interpreted as a volcanic eruption, but the lack of any known previous activity combined with its location in the Mediterranean Ridge accretionary complex mean that this explanation is considered unlikely. The accretionary complex is known to have many mud volcanoes and the most cause of the flames is the spontaneous ignition of methane escaping from a mud volcano triggered by the earthquake.

Severe damage was widespread throughout Messenia, with the towns of Filiatra and Ligudista destroyed and Gargalianoi and Messini badly affected. A further 160 villages were either destroyed or damaged. Six other towns and 65 villages suffered significant damage. About 6,000 homes were so damaged as to be 50,000 inhabitants were left homeless. Several bridges were either damaged or destroyed and a 3 km length of train track was damaged near Pyrgos; the number of reported casualties varies from 326 dead and 796 injured, 370 dead and 500+ injured, to 600 dead and an unknown number injured
