Austria still misses coming to terms with the past

Very interesting and ruthless article about Austria’s still not coming to terms with the NS-past in the German newsmagazine  ZEIT ONLINE. Contrary to Germany, Austria had no  political pressure to work through the past in a comprehensive manner but founded the 2. republic on the historical lie of having been the first victim of the Nazi-regimes aggressions.  The article is in German but may be you are able read it with google-translation – it is absolutely worth reading it to understand Austria’s dilemma with Nazi-past and adherence the lie of  its supposed victim status.
