Hi Val289,

Please see my previous post for an explanation about my own attachment to a particular opinion. I think I probably speak for many others too. Absolutely nothing to do with closed-mindness, only with rational thinking.  :)

I think you speak for a lot of us Helen. :)

Thumbs up Helen! :)


I was thinking about something else on this and don't know where to post it. A lot of the phenomenon of the AA story has come from books, mainly Kurth's and Lovell's. However, some of the strongest and best info against her I have seen has been posted by people who are from Europe, like Stefan. I have a theory on that. As was discussed in another thread, books can sometimes be more one sided or tilted toward the point of view of the author. This is not an insult to anyone, it happens with all kinds of books. But I was thinking that if someone was going to try to prove one thing, naturally they would only linclude things that backed up their cause, and sometimes leave out things that might hurt it, right? It could happen on any subject. I think that there must be a great deal on AA we don't know, or most Americans don't know, because it was in books like the French ones Stefan has that were never translated into English. Because no one ever bothered to bring these views to light, they have been largely hidden while some of the other points, those that back her case up more, have been more prominently brought to light. I wonder what all there is we don't know and how it would change anyone's opinion? Anyway, just a thought I had on the subject.

He's brought us some great stuff, like the letter to Gertrude S. saying how she knew AA was her sister, and the REAL reaction of GD Olga to AA. I bet there is a literal wealth of writings on the subject of AA, and the IF, in French that stayed in the emigre' community. I hope it will get translated too! Stefan if you are around, please bring us more info from France!

I would love to read Stefan's post's.  I tried a search and got very little.  Can you provide links to some of the info he has posted?

And I agree, it would be great to have this info translated....
