I can't believe how many people on here perpetuate stereotypes and condemn the innocent.
"don't buuy anything from germany" so now every german is a nazi are they? You won't buy anything from the Germans, of whom the vast majority were not yet born when the attrocities happened.
Yet you will buy mass produced stuff from china where human rights don't exist, massive attrocities have been committed, mass genocide, mass infanticide. Political executions, Torture etc all within the last year!
Should I never ever buy anything american because of thier torture of prisoners in gitmo (and no matter what the results were it is wrong, america cannot take the moral high ground on any matter concernintg POW's if they continue to do this sort of thing) or because of americas failed attempts at empire (most of which have ended in thousands of innocent civillians dead) or because 250ish years ago one of your ancestors probably shot one of mine in the american revolution? Or how about american slavery which is equivalent to mass torture and subjugation.
Should I judge you on the actions of your ancestors?
Don't even attempt to put a stake in the moral high ground when all you have to offer is hatred and discrimination!
BTW many of my friends are German, they are the most lovely people you will ever meet. I go skiing regularly in Austria and you would be hard pushed to find anyone who agrees with what was done nearly 70 years ago, they are extremely hospitable people who have a lot to offer.
I too come from a military family, both of my grandfathers survived concentraition camps during the 2nd world war, my grandfather on my mothers side because he was a British soldier captured in action, and on my fathers side because he was part of the Belgian resistance and sheltered Jews during the war (was caught doing so). My father was also in the army (artillery) and has seen conflict however non of us are as close minded and full of hatred as some of the people who have expressed oppinions on here!
