The video shows some of the rubble out of which Germany struggled to become the first
country to repay the Marshall Plan in full eighteen years later as well as the burgeoning spirit of a
beaten people

I was unable to separate the video out of the website, but just click on it and raise it to full
screen. No language skills necessary

If you have a piece of corm at least the size of a walnut you have a much better chance for
a banana than these people had for a prosperous life.

Note, these 'Hamburgers' do not com with bacon and tomatoes.
