In times of war, truth is generally much weirder than fiction...
31 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My Mum always used to tell me that you should use every part of the pig

  • except its squeal. She also used to tell me that the reason the Nazis


lost is that they tried to use the squeal.

One of the turning points of the war was when Alan Turing (no umlaut!)
  • or possibly one of his chums - or even one of his enemies - worked


out that the base number used to set everyone's Enigma machine was the published rate of deaths in Auschwitz. See? They prided themselves on using the skin, the bones, the fillings - the lot. And then they used the squeal.

Give me a film, or book, or song, about Violette or Odette or Noor - or Alan, or Leo, or Vera - and I'm just about in heaven. Loved this film - loved it.

Helen
