Thanks for the reply, but if you look closely at certian dates the borders have changed at different times. Unfortunately, my father was rounded up to be one part of the Hitler Youth at the age of 14. No Choice to him, the first chance that he could defect came 2 years later. He is now tenured at Cocncordia University and speaks 5 languages My point still stands, is is the time of birth that the nation rein's. or in my case, who owned the country when?
