   I was reading an item on the website about Herman Kappler
and his last days in Gaeta. A movie starring Gregory Peck as
Msgr O'Flaherty was  a better version than Richard Burton.
Christopher Plummer played Kappler
    There was another prisoner incarcerated with Kappler at
the time an Austrian Otto Renz. After Kappler's death, he
was released to Austria. A minor spat broke out when he was
met back in Austria by a minor official of the diplomatic
service. The Italian government did not find this amusing.
   Last I heard the prison is being used as a military barracks
but that may have changed by now.
