    Is it not strange that the text of the description doesnot mention the background of Erich Stoll who worked for Riesenstahl and participated in two horrible movies, Der ewige Jude, Suss and the registration and enaction of the show process of the heroes who planned and perpetuated the 20 July bomb attack on Hitles. Stoll was during 1940 and 1945 chief cameraman of the Deutsche Wochenshau. In many publications he is depicted as a convinced Nazi.
