My problem is, that I don't know enough about that part of Polish/German
history to judge Helgas articles. That's why I asked for help.

Maybe. But then she doesn't know my 1968-influenced history teachers :-)
I think revisionistic views are more and more dying out in Germany. My
father also is a displaced person, and he's much more forgiving about
these things than my grandfather was. And I am not even interested into
those questions very much. I know that I trust very much in what I
learned at school, but I also know that arguing about these things is
very difficult without having direct access to historic sources.

No, she writes a bit complicated sometimes, somehow oldfashioned.

That whould be nice.
