Lightbulb You asked me once, what was in Room 101

I told you that you knew the answer already..

Ordinary Men..

Fatherland 1994 HQ..

Reserve Police Battalion 101 was a Nazi German paramilitary formation of Ordnungspolizei (Order Police, abbreviated as Orpo), serving under the control of the SS by law..Formed in Hamburg, it was deployed in September 1939 along with the Wehrmacht army in the invasion of Poland.. Initially, the Police Battalion 101 (Polizeibataillon 101) guarded Polish prisoners of war behind German lines, and carried out expulsion of Poles, called "resettlement actions", in the new Warthegau territory around Poznan and Lodz..A total number of 17 police battalions were deployed by the Orpo during the invasion of Poland in 1939.. Following the personnel change and retraining from May 1941 until June 1942, it became a major perpetrator of the Holocaust in occupied Poland..Browning is best known for his 1992 book Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland, a study of German Ordnungspolizei (Order Police) Reserve Unit 101..As presented in the study, the men of Unit 101 were not ardent Nazis but ordinary middle-aged men of working class background from Hamburg, who had been drafted but found ineligible for regular military duty..The first mass killing of 3,000 Jews by the German police occurred in Bialystok on 12 July 1941 in the formerly Russian zone of occupied Poland, followed by the Bloody Sunday massacre of 10,000-12,000 Jews by the Reserve Police Battalion 133, perpetrated in (Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine)Stanislawow on 12 October 1941 with the aid of SiPo and the Ukrainian Auxiliary Police..Inner and Outer Party members are under constant telescreen surveillance in both private and public; by contrast, proles' quarters are generally free of telescreens as the Party does not care to observe them.. Proles who desire telescreens can purchase them, although they are expensive..Their functions are simple: work and breed..

1984 Winston and O'Brien's first meeting..

Commando Unit 101 was a special forces unit of the Israeli Defense Forces , founded and commanded by Ariel Sharon on orders from Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion in August 1953..The creation of Unit 101 was a major landmark in the Israeli Special Forces history..Members of the unit were recruited exclusively from agricultural kibbutzim and moshavim, with the view that only those who were raised as farmers on the land had the spirit to defend it..Membership in the unit was by invitation only, and any new member had to be voted on by all existing members before they were accepted..The recruits went on forced marches and undertook weapons and sabotage training at their base camp at Sataf, a depopulated Arab village just west of Jerusalem..Sharon was given the rank of Major and chosen to command the company-sized unit, with Shlomo Baum as deputy in command..According to Yoav Gelber, after one month of training a patrol of Unit 101 infiltrated into the Gaza Strip as an exercise..Some sources estimate that a result of the infiltration was 20 killed Arabs.. Unit 101 suffered 2 wounded soldiers..The raid was heavily condemned by foreign observers, who called it "an appalling case of deliberate mass murder", and was publicly criticized in the Israeli cabinet by at least one minister..Two months later, in October, the unit was involved in the raid into the village of Qibya in the northern West Bank, then a part of Jordan..Operating within the brigade, they carried out a large-scale attack on the Egyptian army positions in the Gaza strip during February 1955.. Sharon personally led the raid, codenamed Operation Black Arrow.. It resulted in 42 Egyptian soldiers killed and 36 wounded, versus 8 Israeli dead..Egyptian shock over the magnitude of their losses is often cited as one of the catalysts for the Soviet-Egyptian arms deal that opened the Middle East to the Soviet Union...In various ways the Sayeret Matkal combined the operational experience gathered by Unit 101 and utilised the structure of the British Special Air Service... are things in the universe billions of years older than either of our races..We have adequate warships for protection, and they're prepared to set forth as soon as we arrive..So much gets shipped up from Earth on commercial transports it's hard to keep them out..You think you can come to my hotel and take over?...
