Matter: Many updates

Tonight this year's Dresden ceremony will commence. The web site has not been updated the last few years, and our e-mail has not been active. It will be activated soon, and the photos from tonight will also be put on-line, like the ones from 2009. Last year's photos are now available for viewing.

Matter: The ceremonies of 2008

As usual a small moment of remembrance is to be held for the victims of Wilhelm Gustloff.

The Dresden ceremony will also be of a smaller format this year. The location will be some place else than Almhöjden at Skogskyrkogården.

We want to encourage everyone who wants to honour the memory of Dresden, to hold ceremonies on their own, either in privacy or through organizations or societies they may be involved with.

Afterwards we will gladly accept pictures and a few words for publishing.

Matter: The legal dispute between the City of Stockholm and the Police regarding our licence of assembly

Before the Dresden ceremony of 2006, the Cemetery administration of the City of Stockholm opposed the decision by the Police department to grant us permission to hold a public gathering on the cemetery. They appealed against it in the county administrative court, whose judicial decision was to the advantage of the Police (and us). As late as on the 13th of February, the matter had even been settled in the Swedish administrative court of appeal, which also cast its decision to our advantage. At the end of February that year, the City of Stockholm appealed to the Swedish Supreme Administrative Court in order to have the decision of the lower court repealed in case of possible future situations of this kind.

We actually didn't know any of this until we almost a month after the remembrance ceremony learned about it in an article in a major Swedish newspaper:

Shortly thereafter we filed a petition of our own to the court in order to counter some of the unjustified accusations against us delivered by the City of Stockholm through the City lawyer:

Though almost a year has past since then, the court has not yet made its decision. When it does, we will post a report.

Matter: Many updates on the web site

In addition to this year's remembrance ceremonies, the web site has been updated with three new sections:

One page (this one) with current issues of a general interest regarding the activities of the Dresden Committee.

One page with pictures and a few words from private remembrance ceremonies around the world.

One page with letters and commentary from visitors, and also links to commentary elsewhere.
