Re: Afghan grouping

Komsomol - Over the years there have been checks related to the archives, however it is still a gap at this time.

Is it possible to ask you if you have had an access, even uncomplete, to archives about Vartanian?

I am really glad to read that you have more specific background history on Gidal. And also interesting to read that he went to higher level of school in East Germany, very interesting.
