Kreisky?s Children

by Dexter Van Zile (January 2010)

 

Bruno Kreisky, the first (and only) Jew elected to serve as head of government of a German speaking country, had a problem.[1]Soon after Kreisky was elected chancellor of Austria in 1970, renowned Nazi-hunter Simon Wiesenthal reported that Hans Ollinger, a newly appointed cabinet member, had been a member of the Nazi party in the 1930s. Kriesky, who had lost 20 members of his family in the death camps during the Holocaust, needed to send a message to the people of Austria about how they should deal with their country’s Nazi past.[2]
 
Kreisky sent a message, that’s for sure. more>>>
