Richard's Ransom[edit]

The German Wikipedia article "Geschichte Wiens" claims that 50,000 silver marks is roughly 30 tons of silver, not 10-12. Could somebody look up and site the correct number? Btwied 17:02, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Adding References[edit]

I have added references to a couple books on the subject of Vienna during the Nazi period, as this is a subject in which I have some expertise. I could add more. If others have expertise on other periods of Viennese history please help out! Dmhaglund 12:40, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

caption on diagram of zones of Allied occupation[edit]

The caption currently reads: "Zones of Allied occupation in Vienna: the peripheral, paler areas were incorporated in 1938." I find the caption confusing (in connection with the diagram) because if the diagram is showing Vienna under "Allied occupation", why should 1938 be relevant. --Mathew5000 (talk) 07:56, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

In my view, the diagram at de:Bild:Besatzungszonenwien.png is clearer than the one currently used in this article; are there objections to switching the diagram? --Mathew5000 (talk) 16:52, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
