- The Commonwealth
Mhhmmm.My wife is German. My father in law is German, from Bavaria. The German's don't really do jokes.
My wife is a German Jew. There aren't too many of them left anymore. More than there used to be in the 1940's though I reckon. Her dad is an old "German "gentile". He was in the Hitler Youth, Hitler-Jugend. He was "forced" to be. I believe him. I have no choice. Though it is hard to find a German, of a particular age, that admits to being a Nazi.
Along those lines, 9ur friends are Tony and Anna. Anna is from Köln. Tony isn't German. In fact, Tony is black. Anna said her family weren't Nazis. Her mom agreed. 3 years ago, Tony cleaned out their attic. In a trunk he found all sorts of Nazi medals and insignia. Oh and a photo of Anna's grandad in an SS uniform with Heinrich Himmler(and some other men)! To Tony's credit, he laughs about it saying "I wonder what he would think of me and his grand kids?"
