Nicholas Hasluck revisits and revives the infamous and incredible case of Egon Kisch. Kisch, an investigative journalist by trade, came to Australia in 1934 as an activist against war and fascism. He was proficient in ten European languages, so when he arrived in Australia, the Government was so keen to deny him permission to stay, that they resorted to testing Kisch in Scottish Gaelic. He duly failed the test.
