  1. Given that he was born a German, I wonder how he came by the Austrian passport. Did he go into exile there before Hitler marched in, or to Switzerland?

  2. Bloke no Longer in Austria

    Fora a long time a running joke in Austria was that the Communist party KPOe had made so much money out of the sale of East German industry to the Treuhand, that they actually gave up politics and retired.

    I wonder if Bert was a stakeholder too ?
