    Tom Sharp, 71, says he was talking to his half-German daughter Nichole Falconer, 49, and a few words of the language slipped into their conversation.
    The landlady took exception and told him to leave and when other customers remonstrated they were apparently thrown out as well.
    Great.

    My German Grandfather's family came to Canada and he was always reluctant to tell people he was German due to anti-german sentiment there, and especially in the United States once he moved there. I think the militant, jew hating nazi imagery has superseded that of the overall bib and little hat wearing jolly German. With the Jewish media promoting the former Germans are going to need to do their part familiarizing people to the latter.

    British Attitude

    It really doesn't surprise me to read these articles on the negative attitude of the British towards Germany. I read up quite a bit on WWII things, and I watch quite a few things on tv too, and it seems like any time something is ridiculously negative, making the Germans appear to be positively unhuman, it's always a British production. At least in America books and programs seem to be getting slightly less heavy-handed concerning both World Wars, but Britain still seems to be stuck in their intense hatred. Of course I know that is a generalization and I have several friends who are English who aren't like that at all. But my husband is a high school teacher and he always has German foreign exchange students each year. All of the ones who have lived in Britain have stories similar to the ones in the article that started this thread off.

    I have read naught but the thread title, so apologies if I'm blatantly off topic.

    I think it's bloody disgusting that people disregard their European brothers. Actually, I'm barely angered by this anymore, I think 'heart-broken' would be more appropriate. It is seen to that no "germanics" feel any sense of brotherhood with eachother, I hear Austrians wanting nothing to do with Germany, I hear Dutch and Danish people in denial over having any relation to Germany and so on.

    looks like "divide and conquer" definitely applies to "Germanic Europe" and Europe as a whole. We need to stop being so divided and band together against those that ARE dividing US.

    A question to the Englishmen:

    Is Austria included in this typical English anti-german stuff or does the English society make a difference between Germany and Austria regarding these things?

    No, it only applies to Germany.

    If you told many of those concerned that Hitler was Austrian by birth they'd laugh at you, and I suspect less than 5% of them know that Austrians speak German.

    So I think you're safe, Hildebrandt

    Wierd, because every time I see a documentary on WW2 it is always an American narrator if it is over the top with sensationalism and heavy use of the word evil.

    Another 20% would assume Australia was being referred to.

    And what do the other 95% think? That we speak Czech?

    English people have Austria's role in the second world war shaped by that lovely film, "The Sound of Music".

    The English believe that Austria was the first country that the evil Germans invaded and occupied.
