NRK botches “interview” with Commander Kahan
NRK, apparently they never learn, or the people who are responsible for such embarrassing cockups never ever have to face any consequences… The newly minted Commander of the St.Olav’s order, Herman Kahan, was given a full minute to account for his most dramatic moment in life, when he was pulled out from a pile of corpses in Auschwitz.
