Goering - The Star Exhibit (Episode #112Z)

KQED 9: Sat, Aug 25, 2012 -- 3:52 AM

As it was not possible to try Hitler for crimes against humanity at Nuremburg, the prosecutors turned to the next best thing - his deputy, Hermann Goering. Goering had founded the Gestapo, and commanded the Luftwaffe. Strangely the first group to capture Goering was the SS, who had been given orders by Hitler to kill him. The Americans then took up the chase and, in a two week hunt, finally caught up with him. He was sentenced to be executed but, the day before the execution, managed to commit suicide using cyanide.

The Monster and the Butcher (Episode #111Z)

KQED 9: Sat, Aug 25, 2012 -- 3:00 AM

Klaus Barbie was head of the Gestapo in Lyon, France in WWII. His job was to crush French resistance and his barbarity earned him the nickname "Butcher of Lyon." Responsible for the deaths of more than 4000 French men and women, Barbie disappeared after the war. "Ivan the Terrible," aka Ivan Grozny, aka Ivan Marchenko, had been a spectacularly brutal Ukrainian guard at the Treblinka death camp. Husband and wife team Serge and Beate Klarsfeld went in search of Klaus Barbie and first found him in Peru. He then fled to Bolivia, but the Klarsfelds did not give up. In 1983, their relentless political pressure paid off and Barbie was jailed in Bolivia for debt. He was returned to Lyons, the site of his most notorious wartime crimes, and was charged with crimes against humanity. He was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment. 4 years later, he died in prison from cancer. The pursuit of Ivan the Terrible called into question the single minded avenging of war crimes. In October 1983, the Israeli authorities heard that a man suspected of being Ivan the Terrible had been found living in Ohio as a retired auto worker. His name was John Demjanjuk. The US deported him and a sensational trial began. It seemed an open and shut case. But then the case unraveled. The evidence from the USSR turned out to have been faked - probably to embarrass the US by showing how it had been harboring war criminals.

    • KQED all channels, planned overnight maintenance: early Fri 12/19 midnight-6am

      (this includes all DT9, DT54 and DT25 channels, along with all paid services) We will be doing upgrade and maintenance work in our Master Control area during the overnight hours of late Thurs/early Fri 12/19.

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later. Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
