The Salzburg Connection was a very entertaining book that was loaned to me by an enthusiastic reader some 10 years ago. I was able to read it swiftly as a result of its good readability. Yet to see the film that does not appear to be on DVD at this time. Otto Preminger's brother, Ingo, who had been a lawyer in Vienna before going to USA(1911-June 7 2006) produced the film version of this story. The book was of interest because it dealt with aftermaths of the Nazi era and possible burials(some came to pass) of treasures and archives by the former Thousand Year Reich. It tells of new borders created after 1945 over much of Europe as spoils of war and probable schemes people went to in this part of the world to locate such treasures that are still being found or revealed to this day.
