Letters to the Editor: Nov. 2013

To the Editor I want to thank you for the gesture of sending a letter of gratitude for the interview for (“Spaniards in Vienna: Jobs, Hope and the Challenge of Language”, TVR Oct. 2013). I appreciate it so much, especially nowadays, where good manners and courtesy have been relegated to a secondary place. Nuria Latorre […]

Letters to the Editor: Oct. 2013

To the Editor I just want to take a minute to congratulate you and your staff for this outstanding publication. As a former magazine editor in my homeland Canada, and a senior communications manager in the United Nations system, I know what it takes. And how rarely anyone bothers to tell you. Since moving to […]

Letters to the Editor: Sept. 2013

Re: [House Editorial “Out of Golan in 30 Days”, TVR July/August 2013]   What political irresponsibility or unexplainable fears can possibly have forced the Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann (Chairman of the SPÖ) and Vice Chancellor Michael Spindelegger (head of the liberal-conservative ÖVP, who additionally acts as Minister of Foreign Affairs) to abandon within 48 hours […]

Letters to the Editor: Jul/Aug. 2013

To the Editor With thanks for the kind review of my book: When Even the Poets were Silent. [“Breaking the Silence”, TVR May 2013] But I was surprised that there was no mention of how much help I received from the people of Vienna.

Letters to the Editor: June 2013

To the Editor I welcome that in your May issue you deal with Austria’s (nearly) never ending story on bank secrecy  [“Austrians Keep their Sectrets”, TVR May 2013] . However, the article contains a number of errors which might confuse your (law abiding or tax evading) readers. Bank secrecy in Austria was put into law […]

Letters to the Editor: May 2013

  Robert Dassanowsky strikes the perfect balance of disbelief, disappointment, and disgust in “Un-Happy Austria, or, the Problem of         ‘German Studies’” [TVR March, 2013]. And a ‘German Studies’ that rents Austria a small room in a large ‘German’ house is anything but an ‘academic’ matter abroad because some of the most […]

Letter to the Editor: April 2013

To the Editor [Re: “They Eat Horses, Don’t They”, by Martin Ehl, TVR March, 2013] I don’t think British concern [about horsemeat] is just about cultural differences. A big issue is where the horsemeat actually came from. It is suspected that it was illegally smuggled into the food supply by the Romanian mafia, which means […]

Letters to the Editor: March 2013

To the Editor In urging the British Prime Minister to rethink his position on Europe, Joschka Fischer (“Eclipse of British Reason”, TVR February 2013) advises David Cameron to re-read Winston Churchill’s 1946 speech at the University of Zurich. He quotes approvingly Churchill’s words “We must build a kind of United States of Europe.” Revealingly, Fischer […]

Letters to the Editor: Feb. 2013

To the Editor The idea for the classified ads is just great!! It also presents an opportunity to say that we always look forward reading The Vienna Review! It might interest you too, that I attended both productions of: the Vienna’s English Theatre’s Lend Me a Tenor and the new Open House Company’s adaption of […]
