Via Bocage: update re Horst Mahler.
On 19 May, at 2.12 pm, Elzbieta Mahler, wife of Horst Mahler, was able to speak on the telephone with her husband who, as the world knows, is imprisoned in Hungary.
Following their conversation, the next day Mrs Mahler addressed a request for urgent assistance to the German Ambassador to Hungary, Mr Heinz-Peter Behr, where she describes the dramatic situation in which her husband finds himself:
In his cell he has neither soap nor towel, no toilet, toilet paper or socks and the hygiene is deplorable. She explains that Horst injured himself in the toilet because the bowl was broken. As a result, he began to bleed profusely and was given no medical care.
Mrs. Mahler recalls that her husband is diabetic, that he has suffered a heart attack, kidney failure and, of course, amputation of his left leg below the knee.
"I hope that you will not only be content to fulfill your obligation to a German citizen in distress, but that you will also show humanity towards my husband in order to to save his health and his life ", writes Mrs Mahler.
We implore our correspondents to write to The Embassy of Germany in Hungary, the address of which was communicated to us by "Didi":
correction per Eberhard:
Get to your keyboards. No one can read this message and then fail to react: a very short, correct letter in English, French or German will suffice. Imagine the impact if every one of us sent a letter.
Please help by spreading this post far and wide, so that more people can write the embassy! People should also learn about the criminally disgusting treatment meted out to the brave, unflinching Herr. Mahler.
