Ray Goodwin and Carolyn Yeager read and comment on the Sept. 5-7, 1942 and June 13-15, 1943 lunch and dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by attorney Heinrich Heim. Included in this episode:
The failings of monarchies, the stupidity of Princes - human need for an idol - courageous Munoz Grande;
Stalingrad so strongly defended because of its name - Dutch interbred with Malays - Church put religion over race - our soldiers marrying foreign girls ends in catastrophe;
Britons have no concept of chivalry in war;
No mercy on schoolmasters - discourage competing museums in major German cities - wants a military museum in Linz;
Nineteenth century was time of greatest German masterpieces in every branch of art - Munich lacked the necessary money to build quality edifices - men fight for the artistic and intellectual heritage of their nation;
In defence of Metternich - Bismarck needed a war in 1866;
Natural wonders of landscape attract people more than art museums - poor taste in art can be tolerated, but not depravity.

The Museum houses a collection of artifacts related to Zambian culture, first collected by Canadian priest Jean Jacques Corbeil in the 1940s for study and posterity, were stored in the Mulilansolo Mission until 1964, when they were moved to Serenje, Zambia until 1969, then to Isoka. The current site, a former carpentry and bricklaying workshop, was donated by the Diocese of Mbala in 1972, to serve as a museum. When it opened in 1974, it was named the Moto Moto museum, after French Catholic Bishop Joseph Dupont, nicknamed Moto Moto, who began the White Fathers missionary in northern Zambia, where he worked from 1885 to 1911. Mrs Chitungu joins us to discuss the rich history and artifacts the Meseum offers, the numerous tourist attraction Mbala and the region generally offers & what the Zambian community in the Diaspora can do to promote the area.
