In 1986, shortly before the Federal presidency election: in a retrospective view, Ruth Beckermann looks at the beginning of the “Waldheim affair,” which marked a turning point in Austrian postwar history, and nearly toppled the Second Republic’s doctrine of being merely Hitler’s victim. A documentary essay, compiled of collected archive material and newly found personal recordings; on individual and collective remembering and forgetting.
