Liberation of Mauthausen: 5 May 1945 (David Pike, -France, 05/03/15 9:59 am)

Tuesday, May 5th, is the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Mauthausen, the last camp to be liberated (if we except Himmler's Potemkin at Theresienstadt). The ceremonies in Austria will take place on Saturday May 9. On Tuesday, the official day, we gather here in Paris at Père Lachaise, where I have been invited to give an oration on the Spanish dead. Piece of cake. All the organizers have asked me to do is to sound like Pericles.

Regarding the Pike-WAIS Dictionary of Idioms, it was great that John could get letters D and E out on schedule, Tuesday April 21. I plan to send letters F, G and H on Monday May 4, or early on Tuesday in time for the next deadline. I think WAISers will find consistently fewer blank slots. Italian and Russian have already been completed all the way to Z.

JE comments: Pericles? David Pike can do that. And WAISers: don't forget to work on our much-celebrated Dictionary of Idioms, the Pweedy. Here's a link to get you started:

  • Oration on the Spanish Dead: Pere Lachaise, 5 May 2015 (David Pike, -France 05/04/15 11:09 AM)

    The rendez-vous for my oration on the Spanish dead, is Tuesday 5 May, at 15h30. Père Lachaise cemetery, Porte Gambetta, rue des Rondeaux, Paris 20. Métro Gambetta.

    JE comments:  I won't be able to attend, unfortunately, but I am pleased that WAISer Carmen Negrín will be joining David Pike for this solemn occasion.  If it's not too much to ask, I hope David or Carmen can send a report and possibly a photo.
