While Waldheim reacts as expected, the reaction of the Austrian people will give us interesting clues in regard to their character and feelings. I hope for them that powerful and a multitude of voices will be loud in the whole country asking for the thorough investigation of their president.
How else can the Austrians maintain the assertion that they had been raped by the Germans and that they were fundamentally different in outlook and deeds from them?
We know that the Germans of today feel a collective shame. They have learned from history.
Waldheim says he is innocent. Now we want to hear what the Austrian people have to say to all this.
