It's a possibly apocryphal story that the military band in Ronald Reagan's White House played Edelweiss as the Austrian national anthem.

Maybe the Pia Zadora legend originates with this (800 times Peter van Daan):

quote:
There is a line in the play where Otto Frank is talking to Mr. Kraler. It is a light moment in the play. Suddenly Otto says to Mr. Kraler: 'Did we start the war, did the Jews start the war?' It is a joke and everyone laughs. But every once in a while, not too often, we’d hear someone shout from the audience: 'Yes, you did!' You never knew when that was going to happen.
