Understanding the Germans

Pinayexpat, currently living and working in Germany, gives us a peek into her understanding of German people. She observes “They actually place a lot of value on relationships hence, they are wary in the beginning. Friendship isn’t readily given but when it is, you can rely on their sincerity and loyalty.”

    I am interested to know what Germans aged 35 and above think of their Nazi past. I’m not an academic nor historian and this is only of personal interest. Having recently saw the film The Reader, I’m intrigued by history, forgiveness and healing and am currently reading E.H. Carr’s What is History?

    Thank you.
