in other view, during nazi era.. unemployment & civil welfare are well arranged thoughout achievement in scientific & modernization. The hardest part is the racial sentiment created by that regime, which put them into downfall

German people don't honor their Heroes so sad you have nothing to be ashamed of you did what English and Spanish and french did hundreds of years ago but you did it in modern day and fought all the world too

I don't understand, all countries have dark histories some even darker than Germanies. Communism killed more ppl than Nazism. USA killed many slaves, Britain killed ppl in China and India, also they near committed genocide on celtic ppl. I feel like Germany has always been to blame by other countries just because they lost the wars.

Where I live (the US), many people with full- or part-German ancestry hide it or don't mention it. The same is probably true in other countries.

The same is here in Austria but I find it a little disturbing how we're not allowed to be patriotic or proud of our history yet Japan, Russia and Italy are very proud countries which don't do any of their homework on the past and sometimes even praise figures like Stalin or the population of Japan who are in general (especially the younger generations) completely oblivious to what Japan did during the war.

I'm from Ukraine but living in Germany atm. It's total crap to be raised in post-totalitarian countries, glad that Ukraine has escaped this crazy so-сalled "Russian world", I consider Putin to be modern Hitler, so ""look who is back" also returns us to see what is around us, and around us are two big growing dictatorships that suppress countries around them (China and Russia).
To the topic, Germans are peaceful and nice people and during my 3 years here never saw signs of arising nationalism, neither this nor big fault sings, it should not be there, past is past and Germany has paid it all I guess. Let them now live their good life and finally be a little more proud of their country:) And newly born dictatorships one day will be again reviewed by their peoples and again lesson will be learned (like in German case) and won't be admitted ( like in the sad case of communism).

The joke in Europe used to be, maybe still is, at least among the non-Germans: Who starts the wars but loses them all?? The Germans will be under a cloud for generations to come.

I am around 30% German born and raised in the USA. My 7 times Great grandfather migrated over to the USA. I know my family didn't have any part in what happen in World War II but guilt is always there, Even though my family and I are not to blame, I feel sorry that people with the same ethnicity as me would do that to innocent people. It is so sad. This is something that will never be forgotten.

England and France declare war on Germany after the German invasion of western Poland, few months later, the Soviets invaded eastern Poland, don’t think war was declared on the Soviets, in fact they were “Allie’s” ! So for all intents and purposes 3 is the correct answer when adding 1+1

In November 1994 I was on exercise with the British Army in Germany, on the 11th of November we had a remembrance day service in the vehicle sheds at Oxford Barracks, Munster, which was a shared base with the German Army. During the two minute silence at 11 am, we could hear German troops talking nearby which made the event very surreal. Britain has the Poppy, France the Bleret de France, its not like Germany doesn't have memorials such as the U boat memorial at Kiel. In the town where I went to school, the local cemetery has several graves of Luftwaffe pilots, those are near enough forgotten about and never visited At Cannock Chase in England there is a mass grave for the crew of a Zeppelin airship shot down at Barnet during the First World War, in fact nearby there are graves of Germans who were interned after WWI who died in the flu epidemic

Reckoning that it's disrespectful to have a plaque on the ground, where people can walk over – Makes me think of the Hollywood walk of fame, with all those stars on the ground.

I reckon that JUST associating Germany with WW2 is being arrogant and immature. I have also been to Germany twice, and I never really was interested in sights about Nazis and WW2, as there is so much else to see and do there. WW2 was also more than 75 years ago.

"The history of man is the history of crimes, and history can repeat. So information is a defense. Through this we can build, we must build, a defense against repetition."
Simon Wiesenthal.
Very hard to explain the monstrosities of the German people in WW2. The Germans need to find a way to dealing with their past to the coming generations. The best way to do so is to teach from young age how to respect each other. The fact is that Germany 2022 you can still find voices of Neo Nazis, mostly lost and ignorant who join marches of xenophobia,Antisemitism, based on the ghost of the past. But I must say that compere to Poland,Hungary,Croatia, Serbia,Ukraine,the Germans are confronting establishment is doing( not enough) to fight thier skeletons in the closet.

I very much appreciate the acknowledgement of the Germans regarding their very dark 20th century. Speaking of the WWII axis powers, especially if you compare them to…Japan. The Japanese actively suppress and at worst deny the atrocities by the Japanese Empire. It's truly taboo in their culture to discuss it. I have Japanese friends who emigrated to my country and they did not believe me when I showed them my literature on the Nanjing Massacre, or the human experimentation done during the war. They had zero clue, and knew very little about anything else that was from before 1980.
