Interesting - I knew that the Austrian leader was a right-wing opponent of pan-Germanism, but not all of this.

I haven't watched yet, but I admit I don't know much about the interwar years in Austria. :blush:

Former jewel thief reviews heist movies.  It's a long clip and it's not that great.  I'm just posting because he mentioned one thing I was totally unaware of (haven't confirmed it yet).  He says all bank doors have height markings on the inside, so they can tell from the video how tall the robbers were.

Here is a video about how paranoia, conspiracy theories, hatred of the political establishment, and radical political polarization helps interwar France down the path to total disaster:

Fortunately those days are over and nothing like that could ever happen in France today.

Indy: not as good at French as he is at German.

Those markings are very common in stores etc in Sweden.
