Mind-blowing Munich quotations

I trust that a graduate student some day will write a doctoral essay on the influence of the Munich analogy on the subsequent history of the twentieth century. Perhaps in the end he will conclude that the multitude of errors committed in the name of Munich may exceed the original error of 1938.

There was an exhibition in Munich in 1937, 'Degenerate Art,' which included work by Klee, Kandinsky, Beckmann and many others. The work was called 'sick' and put in the trash heap.

The problem is that Bayern has a bazooka. The probability that they will hit the target is clearly higher.

There are three orchestras in Munich, all world-quality, in a city of one million. Yet every hall is full.

I'm not against art fairs, in fact this last one I even made money, but the concept is really disgusting.

I do like 'Munich'.It's a really wonderful film. I mean, there's 'Schindler's List', there's 'Saving Private Ryan'. But 'Munich' - of all the other films, Munich would be the one that's really, really amazing storytelling.

All sorts of local things like that.

I was born in Munich, and my father was stationed in Salzburg.
