All that glitters is not gold.

D. 53m2 is very fond of reading history (and travel books, and comics). Among his books he´s got this Universal History encyclopedia, offered by another History lover. But, reading it  does not necessarily mean you are going to get the right knowledge. It was coordinated by Walter Getz, a guy from the Leipzig university in the early thirties, after the Weimar Republic, a time where Germany points of view were, well, you know how they were. Regarding Spain, it justifies the expelling of the jews in 1492 as the only way to create a big and modern nation. And if in google we trust, half a century ago people did trust encyclopaedias. This little jewel occupies one meter in the shelf. Still negotiating its place in the cave.
