When I saw The Sound of Music in '65, I was either 16 or 17, and I also believe that the nuns got away with it because after all, the Nazis (as portrayed in Hogan's Heroes, also in '65) were a bunch of buffoons and really stupid. C'mon, they did lose the war.

However, after reading The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich and seeing documentaries about the Holocaust -- they actually executed children as young as 4 and 5 on the gallows -- I came to the realization that if the nuns actually aided the Von Trapps in escaping, they would have faced harsh punishment and execution. I still think about this every time I watch the movie.
