“History is not about the facts. It is about the context and who is telling the story.” —Prof. Milton Fine.
"Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past." –– George Orwell in his novel "1984."
The German film Der verlorene Sohn (The prodigal Son) produced by Ufa and directed by famed actor, mountain–climber and woman's man Luis Trenker, was also released in France. The film was considered anti–American by the Allies in 1945 and was forbidden for re–release in post–war German zones of occupation. Today, the film is available in Germany as a commercial DVD release, and also in a Luis Trenker box set.
