I'm quoting a rather long post that astonished my a lot. (I highlited the parts that are, for me, even more shocking) I never thought that Germans (considered by many as a great people; hard workers, highly organized, smart....) should feel guilty about things some of their ancestors did quite a long time ago. It reminded my of that thread about the invaders/invaded thread, but here I'm only talking about Germans. I/my people wasn't/were not of the Nazis' victims, but I know about the horrors they did to millions of people. Still, I think it's very unfair to hold modern Germans responsibles -even in an indirect way- for what was done by their rulers more than fifty years ago. It's totally unfair to raise your children with such a huge feeling of guilt for something they weren't even there when it was done. How come that a nation, which could rebuild itself from ashes, not feel proud of its acheivement, let alone its History -not the recent one of course- but feel guily of horrors commited by its criminal rulers. What do you foer@s think ? P.S. I'm sorry if my question offend anyone, but I'm really curious about this. P.P.S. Any corrections are, of course, most welcome.
