At least the Germans had the sense to >sell the nubbins to someone who would at least use it. Don The idjiots DID dump all of the Zeiss Ikon files into the recycling bin. Just as Zeiss Ikon was getting ready to close its doors, the happy little gnomes danced up to Heinz K?ppenbender and told him that they had NOT trashed the filed but had recycled them, and wasn't he happy at their being so Green? The answer was a rather nasty, "THAT WAS MY HISTORICAL LEGACY YOU TWITS RECYCLED!". Some records survived, but we know far more about Prewar Zeiss Ikon production than about the Postwar stuff, just because the Bolsheviks were so incompetent as to nver throw ANYTHING away, so that whatever survived the Dresden Firebombing of 1945 survived to the collapse of Communism in 1989.
