Proper Remembering.

He wouldn't even have contemplated joining that scum-he was called up depsite his age narrowly beat Dolphy to eternity with his discharge papers in his pocket. Kept getting in to trouble for feeding POWs in the latter stages- but don't let anyone destroy the myth.
Doesn't sound like a real German, did he have Jewish blood?

Did anyone in BAOR or Berlin ever encounter a single German male of 'the right age' who ever admitted to:

Doing anything 'bad'
Fighting against the Western Allies
Being a Nazi

They all seem to have been poor downtrodden conscripts forced to fight for a dictatorship they hated, and that they tried to work against......saved Jews, PoWs bla bla bla

Seems sales of whitewash and amnesia tablets on the black-market were huge post May 8th 1945

A bit of a mix really after the war. At one point I was with a family where the mother (late middle age) would not have anything in the house that was to do with Hitler while her son (teenager) drooled over Hitler and the previous system.

All served on the Russian Front!

A huge amount of German gentlemen settled in South Africa and Namibia post 1948.
Also, plenty of Italian POWs stayed on in SA after the war.
They didn't like each other very much, and later, when there were 'social/sports clubs' set up by the various nationalities, the Italy v Germany matches often turned into fullscale brawls.

No but I do remember the reaction I got throughout when I was asked about my parentage and no one believed me or the vandalism or the beatings I took- no complaints ever made by me-so stuff you.

I wonder if anyone remembers an incident at 24 Sigs when a locker was trashed, dumped in the washroom, pit in the grass outside the window and unfortunately the SNCO knew I had nothing to do with it so I couldn't be penalised and I had to parade in civvies probably Jan 69. Those who were there will know who I am now.


And I was in Northag. I also remember all the snide remarks. Still my shoulders are broad, and I've the hide of a Rhino now. Now may I suggest you read zero degrees of empathy by Simon Baron Cohen. Yup Sachas Brother! And by the way my Dad was English, regular soldier, fought against the Germans and the Italians and was injured at Alamein II doing his job extracting wounded to casualty stations. No medals for the WDF either bloody disgrace, married my mum and for all I know it may have cost him a commission and a different life style.

And do you commemorate the students who tried to stop it all. Good Germans died get used to it.

More special pleading because of your personal history - you need to accept the WW2 German generation's complicity in Nazi atrocities and stop making excuses.... 'sing when you're winning' seems to be the best observation of that generation - would they all have been downplaying their roles in post-war years if they'd won?

As I've told you before, my uncle, a German speaker with the Int Corps, specialised in interrogating prisoners (this was after working as a translator at Bergen-Belsen) - and they always had three photos in their wallet if the IntO got to them before they had a chance to begin editing their lives, a girlfriend, some porn, an atrocity photo
