    Polish Town to Cut Down 'Adolf Hitler's Tree'

    Source: Telegraph (UK) (6-23-09)
    Town authorities now want it cut down and burned to make way for a new roundabout. But some residents have become attached to the 40-foot oak and are lobbying to save it.

    "The tree has not hurt anyone and is not guilty of anything," Kazimierz Polak said, adding that his group was appealing to local and regional authorities to preserve the tree.

    "It is growing healthy and tall. Let it grow."

    But the town's mayor, Maria Kurowska, said it was a reminder of Jaslo's connection to Hitler, whose Nazi troops razed the town in late 1944 as the Soviet Army advanced.

    Mad Oak is Not Kosher

    Firstly, cutting down an old oak tree like this - that has taken all those years to grow, to make way for a stupid bloody roundabout, is pathetic. Equally pathetic, however, is the fact that the mayor believes that it is a reminder of the town's connection to Hitler. How low can things get.?!




    A sad fate awaits a towering tree believed to have been Adolf Hitler’s gift to the occupied town of Jaslo - planted to the sound of a Nazi band during World War II.

    Town authorities now want it cut down and burned to make way for a new roundabout. But some residents have become attached to the 40-foot (12-meter) oak and are lobbying to save it.

    “The tree has not hurt anyone and is not guilty of anything,” protest organizer Kazimierz Polak said, adding that his group was appealing to local and regional authorities to preserve the tree.

    “It is growing healthy and tall. Let it grow.”

    But Mayor Maria Kurowska said it was a reminder of Jaslo’s connection to Hitler, whose Nazi troops razed the town in late 1944 as the Soviet Army advanced.

    Love all living things whose humble task is not opposed in any way to yours, to ours: men with simple hearts, honest, without vanity and malice, and all the animals, because they are beautiful, without exception and without exception indifferent to whatever "idea" there may be. Love them, and you will see the eternal in the glance of their eyes of jet, amber, or emerald. Savitri Devi
