Re: Your rants here

Berlin inquiry doesn’t know how many boys were given to abusers By the late 1960s the West Berlin authorities were at their wits’ end. Hundreds of children had run away from home and were wandering the streets, in some cases openly selling themselves in the archways of the Zoological Garden station...
