The Satmar Rov's visit to the Belzer Rov in 1955 - Belzer version
Must-read if you're into hock like this, and especially if until now only read the Satmar version of this visit. No words are minced. It seems like the Satmar Rov took it very personally, and was visibly quite upset that the BR and the Tchebiner Rov would not accept his view on the matter. Also going as far as to tell them that they'll yet see the err of their ways and will still accept his view as daas torah. There's also the story of the SR's droshoh where he attacked the BR, and subsequently most people who attended went to ask mechilah. I don't recall ever seeing the part about Reb Meilech Ahkenazi of Melbourne being chucked out of the room.
