= During the war, Otto Skorzeny (1908-1975) was an Austrian SS-Standartenführer, renowned for several spectacular military operations. In 1947 he was acquitted of war crimes and eventually settled in Franco's Spain. Paul van Tienen was a Dutch SS man. In the 1960s he was convicted for spreading fascist, anti-Semitic publications, after which he fled to Spain and continued his activities with his publisher's company Eurolibro. "(...)

Bondy p.145: "After they came to power in 1933, the Nazis produced a steady flow of miniature booklets which were illustrated with photographs by Heinrich Hoffmann, Hitler's official photographer and showed the Führer with the army and navy, with German workers, at his mountain retreat, etc. During the Second World War, similar booklets reported boastfully German victories in Holland, Poland, Norway, France, in Eastern Europe and at sea. None of these publications (...) were for sale; they were given as receipts for donations during the "Winter Help" street collections and thus served a dual purpose, with propaganda being the most important one."
