Looks like this is a true gem Treebeard.

It is the best to hear this kind of information from people who actually lived there during those days, than receiving info from post-WW II, third party writers, movie makers and journalists.


I'll post the interviews and descriptions per segment.





Interviews with Wilhelm L. Kriessmann



Carolyn talks with World War II Wehrmacht veteran and Luftwaffe bomber pilot Wilhelm Kriessmann (pictured below in 1940) about the political climate in Austria during his youth in the 1920s and ’30s; then his wartime and post-war experiences. Kriessmann was incarcerated in the British concentration camp for political prisoners at Wolfsberg for nine months after his return to his family home in Sept. 1945; then for a further eight months at Camp Wetzelsdorf before being released in 1947 and continuing his education.
