This post expresses some of the same thoughts I had when I heard this song was supposed to show that Trump sympathized with the alt-right. Good grief! The whole movie was anti-Nazi and anyone who watched it would know that. The song was a sad farewell as the family left the homeland they loved because they could and would not support Hitler. I’ve read Maria von Trapp’s autobiography.
