I have no clue as to who Hamsun-in-Norway might have been but his name apperars a bit extraneous to this discussion. By the time of Kristallnacht, Reifenstahl had been shunted away by G?bbels for two years. In other words, any services Riefenstahl gave to the Nazi regime ENDED in 1936. How does this make her responsible for anything beyond that point? Marc firstname.lastname@example.org FAX: +540/343-7315 Cha robh b?s fir gun ghr?s fir!
