    Koco, so it is Slovak. My mistake and apologies.

    I find it fascinating that the sense of morality imbued in Cold War era films from Eastern Bloc countries is so righteous with respect to Nazis, while the citizens of those nations were being subjected to immoral oppression by their governments. I suppose it was a matter of perspective.
