Slick and well done. It is really interesting to hear the voices of Dr Frauke Dibbern Ploog (Dibbern’s only surviving German daughter) and of Doe von Fritsch.
[Unfortunately not a single reference to Dark Sun, my years of research — the substantial findings of which I made freely available to Ms. Selg — and my role in the Dibbern story was not included by the radio SWR-2. E.G.]
