“For a time, we thought that the hatred of Jews had finally been eradicated. But slowly the demonization of Jews started to come back,” Lauder said. “Once again, young Jewish boys are afraid to wear yarmulkes on the streets of Paris and Budapest and London. Once again, Jewish businesses are targeted. And once again, Jewish families are fleeing Europe.”

SpaceX and Boeing said Monday that they are on track to carry out their first manned test flights to the International Space Station in 2017. NASA chose the two companies last September to transport American astronauts to and from the orbiting lab.

On Thursday Jan. 22, 2015, Russia accused Poland of engaging in a “mockery of history” after the Polish foreign minister Grzegorz Schetyna credited Ukrainian soldiers, rather than the Soviet Red Army, with liberating Auschwitz 70-years ago. The latest exchange comes prior to the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by Soviet troops on Jan. 27, 1945, underlining deep tensions between Russia and Poland, which is hugely critical of Russia's recent actions in Ukraine.

In recent years, Shipper has been traveling around Britain to share his story with school groups, hoping to reach as many people as he can while he has the strength.

“There is a triangular game in play from Delhi’s point of view,” said Ashley Tellis, a South Asia expert at the Washington-based Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Modi wants “all of the benefits that come from being seen as working in close collaboration with the United States,” including access to American technology, expertise and military cooperation, said Tellis.

Kurdish fighters backed by intense U.S.-led airstrikes pushed the Islamic State group almost entirely out of the Syrian town of Kobani on Monday, Jan. 26, 2015, marking a major loss for extremists whose hopes for easy victory dissolved into a bloody, costly siege that seems close to ending in defeat.

The battlefield success is a major conquest both for Syria’s embattled Kurds and the U.S.-led coalition, whose American coordinator had predicted that the Islamic State group would “impale itself” on Kobani.
