Did you know we’re actually NOT Nazi’s and there’s a lot more to our history than just Hitler? Did you know a lot of Germans were forced into supporting Hitler because otherwise the Gestapo would take you in the middle of the night and kill you and possibly your family? And that children were taught to tattle on their parents if they weren’t in support of the Nazi party? Did you know SS soldiers and Concentration Camp soldiers were actually executed for secretly sneaking food or helping the prisoners? Did you know a German made the first globe, first car, alcohol and mercury thermometer, electron microscope, the first freely programmable computer, the bunsen burner, etc?
Probably not since you’re too busy insulting my country and only thinking of Nazis when you hear it’s name and calling me a Nazi when I say, “Yes I’m German.”
I’m not saying to forget the Holocaust and the war. I’m just saying you don’t need to bring that up when I say I’m German. If that’s all you know about my country, kindly shut up.
I’m not German, but I think this is very, very important and I’ll always reblog this.
It’s a matter of respect. Judging a country, and a beautiful one too, for something their people couldn’t help is one of the most outrageous things I’ve ever seen.
I am in the same situation. My country is more than Mafia.
That’s because I demand RESPECT for all the countries in this world.
You can’t blame a whole country for a foolish act that one leader or religious group did.
also we invented capri sun
I was at France for an exchange, and the First thing i heard at the exchange School was “Hitler” as they saw us german. Why?
And i also heard of an Studie from England which said that about 43% of the english pupils think that most germans are still Nazis.
Please read this. Do you know that for the longest time, even now, Germans are not really “allowed” to be proud? All those American flags that are waving in the USA, we were never allowed to do something like that. Because immediately people would think of us as Nazis. Weirdly enough, with the Football (Soccer) World Cup we could finally show some pride. Wave our flag, you know. And there are so many things Germans SHOULD be proud of. Goethe, anyone? Beethoven? And we’re reduced to Hitler and the Holocaust. Also, did you know that Hitler was actually Austrian? No one ever cares to make that differentiation. Just read this. Don’t judge a whole population centuries later. No country is without shame. NOT ONE SINGLE ONE. (Not even Switzerland, I presume. As neutral as they always want to be)
even germans accuse other german people for being nazis. I’m so sick and tired of this. so… reblog this.
and just for the record: we have awesome beer!
I’m not german but i will reblog this every time
You do know that, as a US citizen, I feel the need to let you guys know that my country went out of their way to perpetuate this steriotype for a reason. You don’t get to be nazis and then forget it (says the country who happily went about the genocide of my ancestors). You have to leave all the concentration camps and whatnot, and deal with all that for all of eternity. The US wrote that in our post war charter. If this stereotype ever goes away, it’s still written that we get to unleash an atomic bomb on Germany. That’s why it’s still so prevalent. American hypocrisy.
*dumps self down the garbage disposal*
i hate it when i see someone i vaguely know in public. do i say hi?? do i act like i don’t see them and hope for the best??
if you can’t beat them, dress better than them
