    Question ABBA Reunited

    Will it tarnish their legacy?
    Our beauty is our power, our strength. We can’t allow them to change us, to lessen us. I will never grant them that satisfaction, and neither should you!

    I'm surprised it's happened. Agnetha seemed to be committed to self-exile.

    This is excellent news! I want to visit the Abba Museum sometime soon.

    They have rights to do what ever they want ... and very long time they were able to object this. But I guess humans minds can change then you become older (seeing world and your personal life in different lights)?

    Personally (as one who has just heard about their songs via radio) ... they would stay more legacy if not doing this.

    As much as I love Abba this is 20 years too late. They have all grown old. Still we shall have to see how it pans out.

    Just curious if anyone knew this :

    "Anni-Frid Synni Lyngstad was born in Bjørkåsen, a small village in Ballangen near Narvik, in northern Norway, to a Norwegian mother, Synni Lyngstad (19 June 1926 – 28 September 1947), and a German father, Alfred Haase (29 June 1919 – 23 February 2009), who was a sergeant in the Wehrmacht, not long after the end of the Second World War and the German occupation of Norway.[2] Haase returned to Germany when his unit was evacuated.[2]In early 1947, Anni-Frid, her mother Synni, and her maternal grandmother, Arntine "Agny" Lyngstad, left their birthplace, fearing reprisals against those who had dealings with the Germans during the occupation."

    (taken quickly from Wikipedia but basically just some facts without much spin LOL ~ I'm sure there's more to the story of them leaving Norway and "fearing
    reprisals" than it sounds there)

    Yes, it's known here in Norway, but not that well-known with younger people. Women who had relationships with the Germans were treated very badly after the war.
    Many children, who of course were completely innocent, had hell growing up.

    (Side note: Famous Norwegian rallycross driver Martin Schanche had a German father, he was a pilot in Norway during WW2.)

    I've heard of this and some of the things she went through. She once had a man throw her into a river "to see if the little witch would float" when she was a girl. She was also nearly raped. The treatment of part Germans was so bad after the war that some of the Nordic countries were actually investigated after the war. Children simply thrown onto the streets and left to fend for themselves or starve. They usually ended up as thieves or prostitutes. Once a girl was kept chained in a barn and used as a sex slave by an uncle. Another country I'm not sure what one it's been awhile, simply let 10,000 German children mostly infants and very young children starve to death on a beach.

    Well at least here in England the people were not so cruel. I dare say in countries under German occupation the people felt more bitterness. Apart from the bombing England was never occupied.
