Wim Kan on rearmament (1954)

10-03-2013 Found on an old record: (Dutch recording)

A fragment from a 1954 show by Dutch comedian Wim Kan. The West-Germans are allowed to re-arm themselves, 9 years after WW2. Wim Kan doesn`t agree, and sings a song expressing his view. People felt strongly about this back then, as you can tell by the audience`s quick reaction at the end. Interesting from a historical point of view. To finish up and clear the air again, Kan sings a silly Christmas song.

The recording is in Dutch, but may interest non-dutch speakers in that it is quite old.
