The postwar government was soon dominated by communists and in 1949, a blatantly pro-Soviet “people’s republic” was declared. Maybe the last nail in the coffin was a scandalous 1994 affair to sell guns through Panamanian and Ukrainian front companies into the violent breakup of Yugoslavia. The pistols were also made available for other users and TT-33s spread around Africa and Asia. For starters, the town’s name is Oberndorf not “Oberaudorf”.
