    Focus On Europe [#3205] Ukraine: Rich Remain Ruling Party Poland: The last death march - A small group of elderly Poles has paid tribute to the victims of the last death marches from Auschwitz by walking the same route. It took them three days to cover the 77 kilometers. In mid-January, 1945, shortly before the Red Army arrived, the Nazis ordered the evacuation of the Auschwitz concentration camp. About fifty-six thousand inmates were forced to head on foot towards the town of Wodzislaw ?laski. Fifteen thousand died on the way. From Wodzislaw, the survivors were taken by train to camps in Germany. Jan Stolarz initiated this commemorative walk three years ago and takes part every year. Along the route there are numerous graves, monuments and memorial plaques. Ukraine: Winning the Oligarchs' Favor - Whoever wants to win the struggle for power in Ukraine will have to have country's rich business magnates on board. So far, most of Ukraine's oligarchs have supported the government. It's an open secret in Ukraine that the government of President Viktor Yanukovych is closely linked to influential barons of industry. That includes the Donetsk clan, of which the president was a leading member. It was created by multi-billionaire Rinat Akhmetov, the wealthiest man in Ukraine. But there are also oligarchs who have now shown sympathy with the opposition demonstrators. France: La Reunion: Shark attack - The French holiday island La Reunion is in a state of alarm because of shark attacks. In the past two years alone there have been five deadly shark attacks on the island in the Indian ocean. Now the island administration wants to "remove" about 80 sharks. They are to be killed. The plan has triggered a heated debate, with environmentalists on the one side and the tourist industry and many local residents on the other. Bull sharks up to 3.5 meters in length, a species that is considered responsible for many attacks on humans around the world, are not allowed to be sold as food on La Reunion. It's suspected that's the reason their numbers have increased considerably. Italy: Children of the 'Ndrangheta - Teenagers in Italy who come from Mafia families scarcely ever manage to avoid a criminal career. A juvenile court judge has now resolved to change that. For two years, Roberto di Bella has been head of the juvenile court in Reggio Calabria, the center of the 'Ndrangheta criminal organization. He has developed a method to help children from 'Ndrangheta families escape the vicious cycle of criminality. He removes criminal or dangerous teenagers from their families and sends them to care homes or host families. At present 15 teenagers are living with host families, far from their criminal parents. duration 26:10   STEREO TVG

Students in the program have seen their chances of dropping out fall from 90% to 10% while their tests scores in many cases exceed that of their peers, and it has generated national interest as a model for schools with significant Latino populations. duration 26:30   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

Afterward, as they head back on the Road, an unfortunate event happens-an unexpected mechanical issue leads the Green RV to catch fire.
