Admiral’s Men

The Admiral’s Men (also called the Admiral’s company, more strictly, the Earl of Nottingham’s Men; after 1603, Prince Henry’s Men; after 1612, the Elector Palatine’s Men or the Palsgrave’s Men) was a playing company or troupe of actors in the Elizabethan and Stuart eras. It is generally considered the second most important acting troupe of English Renaissance theatre (after the company of Shakespeare, the Lord Chamberlain’s or King’s Men).

They were first known as the Lord Howard’s Men, named after their patron Charles Howard, 1st Earl of Nottingham. The company played once at Court on December 1576 (the play was called Tooley), again on 17 February 1577 (The Solitary Knight), and a third time the following Christmas season, 5 January 1578 (all dates new style). They toured widely, from Bath to Nottingham, in the years 1577–79.

A powerful patron like Howard could make a great difference in a company’s fortunes. Though there is little evidence that he was actively concerned with drama, Howard was almost alone among Elizabeth’s closest councillors in opposing the Lord Mayor of London’s 1584 drive to close the public theatres. The theatres stayed open.

When Howard became England’s Lord High Admiral in 1585, the group’s name was changed to reflect his new title. They performed regularly in the provinces and at Court in the 1585–87 period; but a fatal accident at one of their performances forced them into a temporary retirement. (During a performance in London on 16 November 1587, stage gunfire went wrong, killing a child and a pregnant woman.) But they returned to activity with two performances at Court in the winter of 1588–9, on 29 December and 11 February.

Despite the power of their patron, the Admiral’s Men were not entirely free of official interference. Both they and the Lord Strange’s Men were stopped from playing by the Lord Mayor of London in November 1589; it seems that Edmund Tilney, the Master of the Revels, had taken a dislike to their choice of plays. During this period of difficulty the Admiral’s Men moved into James Burbage’s The Theatre for a time (November 1590 to May 1591), and there they played Dead Man’s Fortune with a young Richard Burbage in the cast — the only time that the later competitors Burbage and Edward Alleyn, the longtime star of the Admiral’s, are known to have acted together.[citation needed]

If the Admiral’s Men were having difficulties in the City in this period, they were still welcome at Court (28 December 1589; 30 March 1590), and still popular in the towns and shires, where they toured more in 1589–90. Indeed, this was perhaps the height of their achievement: in these years Alleyn was making a sensation acting the heroes of Christopher Marlowe. Tamburlaine was printed in 1590 with their name on its title page. Some of the plays of Robert Greene, and Thomas Lodge’s The Wounds of Civil War, were also in their repertory in the early 1590s.

It was during the later 1580s that the company established its long-term relationship with Philip Henslowe, theatre builder, producer, impresario. Henslowe’s Rose Theatre was home to the Admiral’s Men for a number of years, and Henslowe played a key role as a blend of manager and financier. After the major disruption of the 1592–94 era, when the public theatres endured a long closure due to bubonic plague, the Admiral’s Men entered another lush period in 1594 and after.

The re-constituted company resumed performances on 14 May 1594, with The Jew of Malta and two anonymous and lost plays, The Ranger’s Comedy and Cutlack. The Admiral’s Men had Edward Alleyn as their leading man; other personnel included George Attewell, Thomas Downton, and James Tunstall, all veterans of the earlier pre-1592 version of the Admiral’s, and Richard Jones, a former mate of Alleyn’s and Tunstall’s in Worcester’s Men in the 1580s. (Jones and Downton would defect to Pembroke’s Men in early 1597, only to be caught up in their disastrous performance of The Isle of Dogs, and return to the Admiral’s by the end of that year.) Attewell was a „jigging“ clown, known for his dancing; when Richard Tarlton had died in 1588, Attewell had taken over the job of dancing a jig at the end of each performance of the Queen Elizabeth’s Men. John Singer, another clown with the Queen Elizabeth’s company, also joined the Admiral’s in 1594; other members included Edward Juby, Martin Slater, and Thomas Towne. The company’s repertory came to feature plays by George Chapman, William Haughton, and Anthony Munday, among many other poets.

The survival of Henslowe’s so-called Diary (actually an account book kept by Henslowe and others in his organization) provides scholars with more detailed information about the Admiral’s Men in this era than is available for any contemporaneous acting troupe. Among other points, the Diary illustrates the enormous demands the Elizabethan repertory system placed upon the actors. In the 1594–95 season, the Admiral’s Men generally performed six days a week, and staged a total of 38 plays; 21 of these were new plays, introduced at a rate of approximately one every two weeks — but only eight were acted again in subsequent seasons. The next season, 1595–96, demanded 37 plays, including 19 new ones; and the following year, 1596–97, 34 plays, 14 new. The company consistently played the works of Marlowe throughout this era. Tamburlaine Part 1 was acted 14 times in the 1594–95 season, followed by Doctor Faustus (12 performances), The Massacre at Paris (10), The Jew of Malta (9), and Tamburlaine Part 2 (6). Taken altogether, the most popular play over this 1594–97 period was the anonymous The Wise Man of Westchester, which has not survived yet was acted 32 times over the three years, debuting on 3 December 1594 and last played on 18 July 1597. Earlier scholars speculated that it might be an alternative title for Anthony Munday’s John a Kent and John a Cumber, though no firm evidence supports this idea.

Henslowe had interests in other theatres, including the Fortune Theatre (built in 1600); the Admiral’s Men moved into the new venue, and when the lease ran out on The Rose in 1605 it was abandoned. The company prospered, at least moderately, in its new location: in 1600 a share in the Admiral’s Men (one out of a total of ten) was worth £50, while in 1613 a share (one of twelve) was valued at £70.

Sometime in the winter of 1603–4, after the House of Stuart succeeded to the throne of England, the Admiral’s Men acquired a new patron, Prince Henry (1594–1612), later the Prince of Wales (1610–12). Edward Alleyn retired from the stage in 1604, though he was involved with the company as their Fortune Theatre landlord. During this period their core cohort of players consisted of William Bird, Thomas Towne, Samuel Rowley, Charles Massey, Humphrey and Anthony Jeffes, Edward Juby, and Thomas Downton (who’d been part of the 1597 production of The Isle of Dogs). Edward Juby was the company’s payee for Court performances, which suggests that he had significant responsibility for the troupe’s finances.

The company was known as Prince Henry’s Men until the Henry’s early death (6 November 1612), after which they came under the patronage of his new brother-in-law, Frederick V, Elector Palatine. Their new patent of 11 January 1613 lists six of the actors of the previous decade, Juby, Bird, Rowley, Massey, Downton, and Humphrey Jeffes, plus six new sharers, who included John Shank, later a long-time member of the King’s Men, and Richard Gunnell, who would become a theatre manager and impresario by building the Salisbury Court Theatre with William Blagrave in 1629.

The company suffered a major set disaster when the Fortune Theatre burned down on 9 December 1621, destroying their stocks of playscripts and costumes. The owner, Edward Alleyn, rebuilt it in 1623, in brick, at a cost of £1000. The actors moved back in, though recovery was difficult. They persisted for years, but endured a long-term decline in reputation. The company finally collapsed in 1631; after a re-organization, a troupe with some of the same personnel received royal patronage under the name of the infant Prince Charles, the future Charles II, and became the second iteration of Prince Charles’s Men at the Salisbury Court Theatre. In December 1631 the Fortune Theatre, vacated by the Admiral’s/Palsgrave’s company, received the King’s Revels Men from the Salisbury Court for the next few years (1631–33).

The Admiral’s Men acted a huge repertory of plays during their long career; Henslowe’s Diary lists dozens from the 1597–1603 period alone. Unfortunately, most of these plays have not survived; they exist only as titles (sometimes provocative titles, like The Boss of Billingsgate, or Mahomet, or Judas). The list that follows is a selection of noteworthy surviving plays.

Mohd Amri Yahyah

* Senior club appearances and goals counted for the domestic league only and correct as of September 07, 2016.

Mohd. Amri Yahyah (born 21 January 1981) is a Malaysian footballer. He plays for Malaysian Super League team Johor Darul Takzim FC, having joined them after an illustrious 12-year career with his boyhood club Selangor FA. He also plays for the Malaysia national football team, and is widely regarded by Malaysian fans to be the finest player of his generation.

Born in Tanjung Karang, Selangor, Malaysia Amri joined Selangor FA in 2001 and helped Selangor FA to the treble (Premier League Malaysia, Malaysian FA Cup and Malaysia Cup) in 2005.

The right-footed player represented Malaysia in the 2003 Sea Games in Hanoi, Vietnam, the Afro-Asian Games in Hyderabad, India in October 2003, and also in the 2004 Tiger Cup helping Malaysia finish third.

Amri became a cult hero when he scored a golden goal against Sabah in the 2002 Malaysia Cup Final. He was made the Selangor FA team captain in the 2009 Malaysia Super League campaign.

His following grew significantly after scoring a brace for Malaysia Selection in a pre-season exhibition match on 18 July 2009, against English champions Manchester United. The latter ran out 3–2 winners.

Amri is a versatile player, having played in a number of different positions including as a defender, winger, defensive and attacking midfielder, and striker.

In November 2010, Amri was called up to the Malaysia national squad by coach K. Rajagopal for the 2010 AFF Suzuki Cup. Amri scored twice against Laos to secure a 5–1 win. Malaysia went on to win the 2010 AFF Suzuki Cup title for the first time in their history.

In July 2011, Amri was called up to represent Malaysia Selection against Chelsea.

On the 10th of August 2013, Amri once again lived up to his reputation of scoring against top foreign clubs by scoring the only Malaysian goal in a 3–1 loss to FC Barcelona during their 2013 Asia Tour.

Amri signed for Johor Darul Ta’zim FC in the 2014 season after 12 years with Selangor, with a monthly salary reported to be around RM 85,000. In that same season, JDT became the Malaysian Super League champions, narrowly overtaking Amri’s former club Selangor by a mere 3 points on the last day of the league.

Amri remained popular with the Selangor fans following his move, until he celebrated a goal against them by dancing in full view of the supporters. It is rumoured that he did this in protest of the Football Association of Selangor. Selangor went on to win the game 4–1. He later issued an apology, which Selangor fans seem to have rejected, as he was booed upon his return to Shah Alam Stadium to face Selangor, with some supporters even throwing bottles at him when he came over to the Selangor supporters to applaud them. Amri was reported to be in tears after the incident. However, he remains hugely popular with Malaysian fans in general.

Международная федерация тенниса

Международная федерация тенниса (англ. International Tennis Federation, ITF) — управляющая структура мирового тенниса. На сегодняшний день объединяет 205 национальных организаций. Уполномочена вырабатывать и изменять правила игры, представляет теннис в МОК, проводит ряд соревнований, а также занимается развитием и популяризацией тенниса в мире.

Необходимость создания международной организации способствующей сотрудничеству национальных федераций тенниса и стандартизации правил игры назрела в начале двадцатого века, в период быстрого роста популярности игры и увеличения числа международных соревнований.

1 марта 1913 года представители 12 национальных теннисных организаций собравшись на учредительное собрание в Париже приняли решение об учреждении Международной Федерации лаун-тенниса (англ. International Lawn Tennis Federation). Странами-учредителями были:

Через полтора года ILTF была вынуждена приостановить свою работу из-за начала Первой мировой войны.

Деятельность была возобновлена в 1919 году. В 1922 году учреждается Совет по Правилам, в задачу которого входила разработка унифицированных правил игры, и борьба за международное признание ILTF организацией ответственной за правила тенниса.

Ряд важных событий происходит в 1923 году:

В 1924 г. МОК официально признает ILTF руководящей организацией мирового тенниса.

С момента создания федерация выступала как институт любительского спорта, но уже к 30-м годам XX века вопрос участия профессиональных спортсменов в соревнованиях и критерии разделения на профессионалов и любителей стал весьма актуальным и в 1934 году организация впервые официально обсуждает эту проблему и устанавливает «правило восьми недель», позволяющее любителям получать компенсацию расходов за участие в турнирах, но не более чем за восемь недель в году.

К 1939 году, перед началом Второй мировой войны ILTF насчитывает 59 членов. Во время войны деятельность организации снова была приостановлена, а штаб-квартира перенесена в Лондон, где она находится по сей день. Первая послевоенная конференция состоялась 5 июля 1946 года.

В 1948 году впервые принимаются стандарт на теннисные мячи.

С начала 50-х годов происходит стремительная профессионализация мирового тенниса, в 1951 «восемь недель» были расширены до 210 дней в году.

В 1963 году к 50-летию организации учреждается Кубок Федерации — женский командный чемпионат, подобный проводимому тогда независимой организацией Кубку Дэвиса.

Историческое для тенниса решение принимается 30 марта 1968 года на чрезвычайной сессии в Париже — профессиональным игрокам разрешен доступ на все турниры ILTF, в теннисе начинается открытая эра. ILTF организует серию турниров Гран-при, впервые в соревнованиях этой организации теннисистам предоставлена возможность получать деньги за свои выступления.

«Правила поведения» (англ. Code of Conduct), регулирующие нормы спортивного поведения во время соревнований утверждаются в 1975 году.

В 1977 году из названия федерации исчезает слово «Lawn» и буква L из аббревиатуры — своеобразное признание факта, что большинство теннисных турниров больше не проводится на траве.

Кубок Дэвиса — главное командное соревнование в мужском теннисе переходит под эгиду ITF в 1979 по просьбе организационного комитета.

На Олимпиаде в Сеуле 1988 года, в год 75-летия ITF, теннис, после 64-летнего перерыва возвращается в качестве олимпийского вида спорта.

ITF объединяет 205 национальных теннисных организаций, 145 имеют статус полноправных членов и 60 ассоциированных. Кроме того, на правах ассоциированных членов в ITF входит 6 региональных объединений.

Федерация действует на основании Конституции ITF. Высшими полномочиями обладает Генеральное Собрание, проводимое ежегодно. Генеральное собрание утверждает бюджет, рассматривает заявки претендентов на членство в федерации, а также избирает Президента и Совет Директоров ITF. Срок полномочий президента — 4, директоров — 2 года, в совет входят 12 директоров. Только полноправные члены обладают правом голоса на Генеральном Собрании.

В настоящее время Президентом ITF является Франческо Ричи Битти (англ. Francesco Ricci Bitti).

Международная федерация тенниса ежегодно организует ряд турниров, а также принимает непосредственное участие в организации и проведении соревнований по теннису на Олимпийских играх и турниров Большого Шлема. При проведении соревнований федерация тесно сотрудничает с организациями профессиональных спортсменов ATP и WTA.

Соревнования, проводимые под эгидой или с участием ITF:

Мужской и женский тур ITF, состоящие из турниров Satellite tournament и Futures Tournaments, служат начальными ступеньками в мире профессионального тенниса и их результаты учитываются в рейтингах ATP и WTA.

Начиная с 1978 года (для пар с 1996) федерация определяет чемпионов мира по версии ITF. В настоящее время для взрослых спортсменов учитываются результаты выступлений в турнирах Большого шлема, итоговом турнире года и турнирах ATP и WTA, проводящихся совместно с ITF.

Stacy Bromberg

Stacy Bromberg (born July 27, 1956 in Los Angeles, California) is an American former darts player who was a PDC Women’s World Darts Champion. She dominated the American darts circuit in the last decade through winning the US women’s championship on 11 occasions.

Bromberg won the North American Open in 1995 and reached the final of the 1995 Women’s World Masters, losing to England’s Sharon Colclough. In 2002, she qualified for the BDO Women’s World Darts Championship but lost two sets to nil to Francis Hoenselaar of the Netherlands. She then won the 2003 Women’s Las Vegas Desert Classic in her hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada, defeating Deta Hedman six legs to four in the final. She then reached the final in 2004 but lost to Trina Gulliver 6-5.

2009 was a banner year with Stacy winning the WDF World Cup Women’s Singles Championship in Charlotte, NC (USA) with steel tip darts and the Shanghai Women’s Singles Champion with soft tip darts.

She became the first ever PDC Women’s World Champion, after defeating Tricia Wright 6-5 in the final. She had earlier defeated Russian former world ladies champion Anastasia Dobromyslova in the semi-finals.

As a result of winning the PDC Women’s World Championship, Bromberg qualified for the 2010 Grand Slam of Darts, where she lost all three group games to Mervyn King, John Henderson and Terry Jenkins

As the PDC Women’s World Champion Stacy has been a special guest of the PDC at many PDC events including week three of the Premier League Darts at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast as well as several Players‘ Championships. Since 2011 she has been recognized by the BDO and is ranked 106 in the BDO invitation women. She has recently turned down several invitations by the ADO to compete in their National competitions due to their decision, along with the WDF, to disqualify her from defending her World title in Dublin, Ireland because she competed in 4 PDC events the prior year.

As a member of the American Darts Organization (ADO) Stacy has been the #1 ranked women’s player a record 16 times (13 in a row), National Team Member 12 times, National Champion-Ladies 501 11 times, National Champion-Ladies Cricket 4 times, the 1st player with 1000+ championship points in one year, and the Ladies National Points Winner 15 times.

Originally from Los Angeles, Bromberg now resides in Las Vegas. She is a fan of the Oakland Raiders and gets her nickname The Wish Granter from her work in various charities.

She made her full-time living as a private detective although she gave it up, when she came to prominence after winning the inaugural PDC Women’s World Championship. She then taught school until her battles with cancer in 2012 and 2013 rendered her unable to teach.

Amerikanische Seezungen

Hypoclinemus mentalis

Die Amerikanische Seezungen (Achiridae) sind eine Familie der Plattfische (Pleuronectiformes). Sie leben in Süß- und Brackwasser von Nord- und Südamerika und in den küstennahen Meereszonen beider Kontinente.

Sie ähneln den Seezungen (Soleidae) und wurden früher als deren Unterfamilie angesehen. Wie diese haben sie die Augen auf der rechten Seite. Die untere Lippe wird durch einen Knorpel verstärkt.

Die meisten Arten haben eine auffallend kreisrunde oder ovale Körperform. Rücken- und Afterflosse sind nicht mit der Schwanzflosse zusammengewachsen. Die rechte Bauchflosse ist mit der Afterflosse zusammengewachsen. Die Brustflossen sind klein oder nicht vorhanden.

Es sind kleine Plattfische von nur 3,5 bis 23 Zentimeter Länge.

Die Amerikanischen Seezungen bilden zusammen mit den Seezungen (Soleidae) und den Hundszungen (Cynoglossidae) eine monophyletische Gruppe, wobei die Amerikanischen Seezungen die primitive Schwestergruppe eines gemeinsamen Taxons der beiden anderen sind.

Ari Norman

Ari Daniel Norman is a British designer and manufacturer of traditional and modern Sterling Silver jewellery and gifts. Norman is the founder and director of Ari D Norman Ltd, international supplier of sterling silver designs to the trade and consumer market, and creator of the Ari D Norman brand.

Norman was the first and only silversmith to win the Queen’s Award for Export Achievement in 1989 and was awarded Freedom of the City of London in 1992 for services rendered to the British Silver industry.

He currently lives and works in North West London with his two sons Lee and Adam

Ari Norman’s paternal grandfather, Leibish Nussbaum, a Polish diamond cleaver was arrested in Marmande in the Southern French region of Lot-et-Garonne in 1942, where he and his wife were in hiding during WWII and taken via Drancy to the concentration camp Auschwitz where he was killed as part of the Holocaust. Some of his other family went into hiding in Lot-et-Garonne, including his grandmother Perla, his aunt Laura and her husband Nathan. They were hidden by a Resistance member, called Lucienne Deguilhem, who had a large house in Monbahus. Norman’s cousin Jacques was born during this time in hiding. Norman’s father, Shabse Nussbaum (later Sydney Norman), escaped the Holocaust by boarding a ship he thought was headed for the South of France only to discover he was headed for England. There he stayed, married Phillys Larkham who had originally taken him in as a Belgian refugee, and continued to work in the diamond industry for many years. In 1956, with his mother and four older sisters, Ari Norman went to live in Liberia, aged nine, with two pet chimps, a pygmy deer and a couple of pygmy hippos, whilst his father pursued his passion for discovering diamonds in West Africa. His father had an eventual breakthrough and was one of the very first people to help discover diamonds in the rivers and jungles of Liberia. He was honoured by the Liberian President Tubman in the 1960s.

Having studied to become a Civil Engineer, Norman returned to Liberia in his 20’s to help build roads and bridges for his father’s expanding diamond mine but chose not to focus on Civil Engineering as a career path. Instead he travelled across North and South America through his 20’s and 30’s. His father’s diamond mine became unworkable due to its location in such an unstable region and he sold it on, only to be given it back for free a few years later.

In May 2014, Lucienne Deguilhem was posthumously awarded ‘Just Amongst Nations’ by Yad Vashem, World centre for Holocaust research, to coincide with the first National Day of Resistance in France.

Ari Norman had decided that wherever he travelled in the world, he would pick up local craft samples and send them back home. As Norman was on his world travels, he collected a wide range of items including ethnic jewellery and clothing and shipped them all home. Once back in London, Norman and his father decided to offer these unique items for sale to retailers in the West End and around the King’s Road. Mexican Silver proved to be the most popular. Norman sold every sample he had shipped home and received future orders for items he didn’t have. He returned to Mexico where he had found the silver pieces and his business took off. Norman originally bought from retailers in Mexico City but soon moved onto the town of Taxco where the silver craftsmen were based and he could buy from them wholesale. International Jewellery and Crafts was officially born in 1974, run from Norman’s parents’ house in Willesden, London and would become Ari D Norman Ltd in 1976.

Norman initially bought silver jewellery and gift items from Mexican artisans in order to sell directly onto retailers. He then started to design his own work, at first adapting and modify pieces, later creating more and more original pieces until Norman eventually developed his own antique style that would become globally heralded and often copied. Norman took great interest in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements and began to design jewellery that reflected these styles. He then drew inspiration from further back in time and would design items heavily influenced by the Victorian art era. These were considered the ‚antiques of tomorrow‘ and drew influence from artists such as Charles Rennie Mackintosh, William Morris, Georges Fouquet, Victor Horta, Rene Lalique and Alphonse Mucha.

Norman and his father began to attend trade exhibitions throughout the United Kingdom, branching out to major European exhibitions followed by residencies in North American and Far Eastern trade exhibitions. The Ari D Norman brand grew its global identity throughout the 1980s and 1990s with Norman often attending around 36 international exhibitions a year and exporting to 80 countries. Ari claimed the world record for participating in the most trade exhibitions worldwide. Ari D Norman revived an interest in small sterling silver accessories such as perfume bottles, thimbles, snuffboxes and collectable pillboxes.

Norman moved the business from his parents’ house to an office building in Northwest London called Argenta House. He managed to campaign the council for a name change of the local road where the office was situated and it was renamed Argenta Way.

Ari D Norman Ltd became ‚the brand behind the brand‘. Norman was commissioned to create work for many large brands including Parker Pens, The Orient Express and Wedgewood. For Parker Pens, he created a new version of their classic Snake Pen which is now a collectors item.

In recognition of his international work, Norman was awarded the Queens Award for Export Achievement in 1989 and was invited to Buckingham Palace. He was unable to attend this event as he was exhibiting abroad but sent his mother along instead. In 1992, he was invited to join the Worshipful Guild of Goldsmiths in recognition of his services to the silver industry and his promotion of the hallmarking system, and was awarded the Freedom of the City of London. Following these awards, Norman was given the right to apply for his own family Coat of Arms. Norman spent a number of years designing the Coat of Arms and created a collection of personal familial symbols as part of the Coat of Arms that would represent his family name over the coming generations. This was presented to Norman by the Royal College of Arms in 1996.

Ari Norman has long been an advocate for the hallmarking system and has promoted the system globally. Norman travelled the world explaining the hallmarking system so that clients could understand the craftsmanship and quality that a hallmark signifies. The system is the oldest form of consumer protection in existence. All the silver produced by Ari D Norman Ltd bears the full British Hallmark with the exception of pieces too small or too delicate to bear it, in which case they are marked 925. When Ari D Norman Ltd became the first British silversmith to receive the Queen’s Award for Export Achievement, to recognise the achievement and the fact that Ari Norman had been one of the most vocal advocators of the system globally, the Queen’s Award Mark was applied as an additional hallmark to their silver items. This hallmark is unique only to Ari D Norman and has never been authorised to any other silversmith since. It can been found in Bradbury’s book of Hallmarks.

In 2012, Norman commission a series of urban art murals to be painted by a local artist, Abe Sesay, across the facade of their headquarters in London depicting a number of race issues from the Olympic Games including the members of the Israeli Olympic team who were murdered at the 1972 Munich Olympics, Tommie Smith and John Carlos who stood for the Black Power movement at the 1968 Olympics and sprinter Jesse Owens who raced at the 1936 Olympics.

Ari Norman continues to develop the Ari D Norman brand across the globe and most recently created a new fashion jewellery brand called JewelAri.

Norman cites his grandfather’s murder at the hands of the Nazis in Auschwitz as a major influence on his actions and character and continues to have a ‘holocaust’ mentality, where nothing in one’s life should be taken for granted. „I was brought up by a father who was gravely affected by the Holocaust, because his own father was murdered at Auschwitz. I learned the hard way that you have to stand up and be counted, not be scared to show that you’re Jewish, and be ready to fight for your independence.“

Norman was originally born Leon Norman but officially changed his name as a teenager to Ari to reflect his true Jewish heritage. The name Ari is the equivalent Hebrew version of Leon and means Lion. Politically active and a keen traveller, Norman travelled across Europe aged 16 with a friend in order to emigrate to Israel but was detained by Interpol when they got to Italy and sent back home by the British consulate because his friend had not told his parents where they were going. Norman volunteered during the Israeli 6 Day War of 1967 as many of his friends and family were travelling in the opposite direction back to the UK to avoid the conflict. In 2010, his thatched house caught fire and he was forced to watch from over the road for the next eight hours as 8 fire engines tried to put out the roof blaze.

Henriette Amalie of Anhalt-Dessau

Princess Henriette Amalie of Anhalt-Dessau (7 December 1720 – 5 December 1793) was the fifth (fourth surviving) and youngest daughter of Leopold I, Prince of Anhalt-Dessau, by his morganatic wife, Anna Louise Föhse.

In 1741 the 21-year-old princess Henriette Amalie gave birth to an extramarital son. When she refused to marry the father — the son of a court retainer — she was banished from the Dessau court. During the next eleven years she lived as a nun in Herford. Later her father (who had himself fathered two illegitimate children) tried to find a suitable husband for her, but all marriage plans failed. In the meanwhile, she lived openly with the Baron of Rackmann, who was fifteen years her junior. Thanks to her intervention, he was raised to the rank of Imperial Count and Baron of Bangert.

Probably to be near her son (who had been placed in the care of a banker’s family), Henriette Amalie acquired a large house in Bockenheim, later named the „Villa Passavant,“ then built the former Franck-school and finally the current Saint Elisabeth’s hospital.

In 1753 the princess acquired a property with a house and orangery attached. She pursued extensive agriculture activities and made the estate virtually self-sufficient. She introduced silkworm (Bombyx mori) breeding, kept bees, and sold oranges from her own residence. Also, she fostered the cultivation of asparagus and the growing of other fruits and vegetables.

In Kreuznach she acquired the feudal estate (German: Rittergut) of Bangert and established there a small castle (today a public museum) in the classicist style to replace the old manor house; it was completed about 1775.

The princess managed her extended properties herself, and was also an enthusiastic farmer. Her financial acumen became the basis for an independent and free life. She was said to have been five times richer than the richest farmer in that region. With her wealth she supported numerous artists.

In 1771 she extended her country house with annexes to the castle. Approximately 700 works of art were exhibited in the „Galerie“ of the first floor of the remodeled castle. Near the castle a „Marmorbad“ was created. Around this time her son died at approximately 30 years of age, a victim of consumption.

In 1790 she acquired a Frankfurt townhouse in Eschenheimer lane.

When French revolutionary troops moved approached Frankfurt in 1792, Henriette Amalie fled to her native Dessau and moved into the „Palais Dietrich“ (named after its former owner, her brother Dietrich, who had died in 1769).

Henriette Amalie herself died one year later, two days before her seventy-third birthday. She was buried in Dessau without any of her family members present for the funeral.
