And for my next piece, I'll be playing Strauss

 The table at which Hitler signed the Munich agreement. This table now
lives, shoved off the the side, in a dusty, ill-lit hallway. Once an
old National Socialist (Nazi) building, it was eventually adopted as a
music school -- our tour guide said, what else could you do with it?
-- and flyers for recitals are neatly stacked on it. Maybe the kids
lean against it while they wait for their exams. The little square
used to have a gold plaque upon it, which was where the agreement was
physically signed on the table.

And this is a Lufthansa stewardess. They didn't start the movie for
FOUR HOURS, so I also have sketches of the airplane bulkhead. I'll spare you.
