Tens of thousands of German Jews fled to the UK to escape persecution during the Nazi regime. Now after the Brexit vote, some Holocaust survivors are making use of their right to become German citizens. But it's not an easy step to take.
German companies have demanded that Britain agrees by next week to an interim phase for its exit from the EU. If no deal is reached at an EU summit, firms must begin planning for a worst-case "hard Brexit."
There is a heated argument going on in Poland at the moment about how the Holocaust can or should be discussed. Stanislaw Strasburger would like to see a fundamental change in the discourse.
Assessing the business costs of Brexit for both the EU27 and the UK hasn't been easy. A consulting firm and a law company have done exactly that, finding that the financial burden on all sides concerned will be huge.
EU negotiator Michel Barnier has revealed the bloc's first draft of the Brexit withdrawal treaty, emphasizing there were "no surprises." Barnier's speech focused on border issues between the UK and Ireland.
