its for the history freaks

, like me, but unfortunately, this was a long drawn slow paced repetition on the alleged lie that crossed waldheims legs in his pursuit for the seat as president in austria in the 80's.

a small digresion are that my father who died some ten years ago, and who was not a historian by far,in the late70's until waldheim left the UN, each time kurt waldheim was on the tv screen my dad screamed'' jævla nazist'', or damn nazi in english, so i wonder ...how did he know??? my dad who had problems tolerating ''das deutsche volkern'', having had tough times during the nazi occupation in norway during the 2nd ww, may have had a nose for detecting former nazis.this antipathy though where decreasing as he grew older, and till he died, he had studied as a ''sleep in'' method german language in bed and had quite a few germans as close friends, through several summerholidays in and through germany.

i shall not deliberate more about this , only to say that this docu was a disapointment, its very narrow on the topic and timeline., do watch if interested.
