A promotional for Shirley Temple’s 1935 film, The Littlest Rebel. I’ve saw a lot of her movies in my youth—thanks mostly to my mom and grandmother—and this one ranks second only to The Little Princess [1939] among my favorites.

The Littlest Rebel.  I don’t remember that one.  What’s with the “Stars and Bars” by Old Glory?

Memories of Magdeburg 1944

I spent lunch again with my Mom. She remembers her Mom sent her with cash, after her two older sisters, who were to buy fresh milk, but they forgot the money. So her Mom sent her after them with the money, but my Mom got lost. The policemen found her and brought her to a Kindergarten. The teacher of the Kindergarten wanted one of the students to share their lunch with my Mom. But nobody wanted to. Then the Kindergarten teacher chose the biggest boy and asked him to share his lunch with my Mom, but he didn’t want to. But he was forced to share his lunch with my Mom. The police asked my Mom for the name of her mother and father, but all she could remember was “Mutti” and “Vatti”. So it was impossible for them to track her parents down because “Mutti” simply means Mother and “Vatti” simply means Father. Eventually by going block by block and inquiring, the police found my Mom’s parents. This is World War II, the way it really occurred. After Germany lost the war, the victors wrote history to reflect a much more sinister Germany. This is the right of the Victor. I do not object to this. As my grandfather said, “the only thing that Germany did wrong was lose the war, but that was a big mistake.”

My daughter would like this

Yes, so the actress is negroid. This is real life. The Third Reich was allied with the Japanese against nominal White Protestant America and the United Kingdom, where the Brits executed Papist Irish sympathisers. When Bobby Sands died from his hunger strike against the Brits, my Dad said, “Wow, the Irish must be really stupid,”. But his secretary, who was a cousin of Bobby Sands, spoke out, and as a woman, in NYC in the 1970’s, she spoke out rarely. She berated my Dad and told him that, “You really don’t understand what is going on in Ireland.” Wtf has this got to do with Daleks and the Irish sympathesirs? I don’t know. This is my America as I lived and experienced it.
