Peter Mcloughlin and 3 other people liked Manny's status update
Manny
Manny is on page 335 of 432 of Als die Tauben verschwanden: So you've gone through successive incarnations as an Estonian freedom fighter and a high-ranking Nazi collaborator, and now you're a fully paid up member of the Communist elite. You meet an important Party comrade in the street and your wife, who's kind of lost the plot, enthuses about the paintings of the young Alfred Rosenberg, still on display at his former school. Embarrassing or what?
