Thule Society - chapter 28
                                       CHAPTER 28
                          Arendsee, Germany - July 25-26, 2010
With tight grips on each other, we ran back to the hotel, which now seemed just as empty as the woods were dark. It felt like everybody else had sunken into the ground, leaving us all alone. Windows full of darkness everywhere. Only the hall was lit by two small ceiling lamps. We were barely able to find the staircase, but we had to grope our way through the corridor and into our room, where we breathlessly collapsed on the couch.
"Wow", Helen exclaimed. "I thought we he had had enough of running away from creeps when we had run away from Oden in the tunnels last summer."
I took a deep breath and gulped. "So did I."
"We better get away from here tomorrow", she said with a sigh. "Who the heck were those three othe

Once outside, we looked around the courtyard a little, then took a walk in the garden behind the rear gate. At the end of the path that led away from the hotel was a narrower, opened gate in the rear wall of the garden. This was the gate leading to the lake, according to the hotel staff. We decided saving the lake for later, and starting with a walk through the town instead.
This seemed relatively quickly done, and when we had rounded the town square, we walked back down the main street again. Each side of the street had an almost straight row of two-storey houses, of which some had mansard roofs, while others merely had sloping tile roofs without any windows. Most of the houses were timber-framed, with white

                            Arendsee, Germany - July 25, 2010
There were nobody else in the restaurant when we went downstairs to have some breakfast the following morning. However, it did seem like some people had been there before us, and there were plenty of set tables to choose from. The restaurant was divided into two rooms, of which one had a long table full of breakfast items that looked way more inviting than the usual breakfast buffet of a Danish hotel.
The floor's light beech parquet was arranged in a herringbone pattern. The walls were pastel green, with a coat of beige stucco. In the middle of the white ceiling was a big, light square, through which beams of sunlight shone into the room. Old paintings and photographs in dark wooden frames, plus bouquets of d

                            Arendsee, Germany - July 24, 2010
The sky began turning cloudy when Helen and I crossed the Danish-German border. We steadily drove under a padded, white sky all the way down through Schleswig-Holstein.
Already on the way home from Vejrupgård, I had called Helen and told her to pack clothes, manuscripts, notes and her laptop, then to stand outside and wait for me. My mother indicated she'd do fine without us for a while, but we nonetheless got her persuaded to take a one-week vacation in Flensburg, where we dropped her off on the way.
Shortly before Hamburg, we had to drive off and go to a suburban supermarket, as it turned out the GPSs in our phones wouldn't be much of a help. It took more than that to find a town like Arendsee, especia

                               Vejrupgård - July 24, 2010
Morten's Passat was already there when I rolled onto the gravelly courtyard with my rented Fiat 500. But I couldn't see Morten anywhere. I folded the manuscripts, got out of the car with them and slammed the door behind me. The Passat's windows were half-tinted, so I couldn't see much of the inside, but the car was empty as far as I could tell.
A sudden sound of his voice made me turn around. He stood in the large doorway of the main building.
"Hey, Mathias!" he yelled. "Could you please start by showing me where you found those postcards?"
"I'm coming!" I yelled back, gretting him with a wave.
"The postcards are upstairs", I said when I had reached him, and noticed him glancing at the folded paper

                                 Odense - July 24, 2010
The funeral was set for 10:30 AM and took place in Assistens Cemetery's chapel, where people would usually hold a ceremony in case they weren't religious or if they had another faith than the Evangelical Lutheran Church. Helen and I went there with my mother.
The baking sun shone from an almost cloudless sky. The smell of the cemetery's numerous dewy graves and and lawns covered the entire area like a warm mist. The chapel was a church-like red-brick building, beautifully contrasting the blue sky by the end of a straight avenue surrounded by tiny beds, square trees and rows of medium tall trees. The shadows cast by the low murning sun preserved the most dewy parts of the avenue, while the parts bathe

My mother was not in the living room, and I quickly left the big, empty dark room to go make sure the front door was locked. After that, I tiptoed to the door of my mother's bedroom and listened.
"Mathias?" her voice said from the other side of the door. "Is that you?"
"Yeah, it's me", I answered. "I was just wandering around a little. I had forgotten how late it was."
"Nevermind about that", she said. "Don't you come in here for a moment? I need to talk about something."
I pushed down the door handle and entered the room. The book she had been reading had sunken on the duvet, and so had her hands. Her red hair was flowing, waving all the way down to her nightgown. Her freckles seemed dark in the dul

My phone started buzzing all of a sudden somewhere deep down my trouser pocket. Helen looked up from the English translation of the script as I frantically reached for my phone down the narrow pocket in my jeans.
"Hello", I panted once I finally got to answer.
"Hi, it's Morten... Truelsen", the voice in the other end said. "Am I disturbing?"
"No..." I hesitated for a moment, then pulled myself together. "No, we were just sitting down and reading a little."
"Good then", he said. "Well, I also just called to tell you that Andreas Heidsiek has taken his own life."
"What??" I exclaimed. "No way??"
"I'm afraid so, yes", he answered. "He was found dead just two hours ago. We have already been able to confi

We left through the basement, same way as we came in, so that we wouldn't have to leave the front door unlocked. Probably wouldn't matter anyway.
I couldn't help squinting at the dark corridor leading to the locked room. But making one more attempt to get it open seemed stupid and senseless.
As we stood by the car, Helen pointed to the dilapidated building to our left side. "What about there? Looks like some kind of residence too. The other one merely looks like an old barn."
I turned around and studied the yellow building with my eyes. "Didn't we agree it was the servants who might have lived there?" I hesitated. "No, wait. Now when I think about it, it actually looks too elegant for that. Let's c

                               Vejrupgård - July 23, 2010
The last chapters of the book about the sanatorium by the lake were quite a mouthful to get through, and it was late when I went to sleep. I would probably have waited until the day after, had I known the last part of the book made it so hard for me to let go of it. But on the other hand, my need for getting to the bottom of the backgrounds of these men was so big that I was not able to sleep without having finished the book. I read till the last page was turned, and the words had slipped the paper and entered my mind, where they were shaped into new questions, which I only knew three places to search for the answers at: Vejrupgård, Waldheim and the white one's domain. The domain of Martin Weg

Today is 100 years ago Denmark sold the three Caribbean islands Saint Thomas, Saint Croix and Saint John, collectively known as the Danish West Indies, to America.

This anniversary has brought the debate about an apology for the slavery back in the days back to life.

Do the West Indians have a right to an apology from the Danes?

I personally believe not.

I don't condone what happened back then, but I had nothing to do with it, so I don't really see why I should stand up and apologize for something I didn't do, to someone who never went through it.

Or to quote Niels Helveg Petersen, former Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs:
"It makes no sense that a generation who never owned slaves should apologize to a generation who never were slaves."

Today's West Indians are free people, and that's the most important thing in my book. Freedom should not be taken for granted.
