Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm sure this story was echoed all over europe, with many tragic consequences. Punishing children for supposed sins of the father is pretty pathetic, but it seems consistently human.

Isn't the brunette in Abba a lebensborn ?

Anni-Frid Lyngstad - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lyngstad was born out of wedlock in Bjørkåsen, a suburb of Ballangen, near Narvik, Norway, as a result of a liaison between 18-year-old Synni Lyngstad (June 19, 1926 - September 28, 1947), and a married German sergeant, Alfred Haase (born 1919), at the very end of the Second World War and the German occupation of Norway.

In the spring of 1947, Anni-Frid, her mother Synni, and her grandmother Arntine Lyngstad left her birthplace because of fear of reprisals from people who were angry and vengeful towards those who had dealings with the Germans during the occupation. This could result not just in insult, but also in forced separation of infants from their parents and relatives (See War children).
