Just found this on youtube.
It's about the so-called "Wehrmachtsausstellung" (filed during it's stay in Vienna, Austria), where the Wehrmacht's atrocities have been shown to the public.

Kind of interesting (positively and negative÷y) to see old men argueing for or against their deeds.
Some try to wash their own history clean, while others tell their stories.
As you'd expect, most of them wave the "wasn't me flag".

In (austrian) German only - there are English subtitles, though.

Interesting to see how the 'invader' tries to justify their deeds, and the others stand by... I suppose it's all about the anarchic state of the country.
WOW... that sounds fimiliar

I saw no whitewashing or dishonest assessments from either party. Just different experiences and different conclusions. Its no different today. I know soldiers returned from Iraq, Both for and against that war.
