    Teenagers' Ignorance of Hitler Shocks

    HALF of German teenagers do not know that Adolf Hitler was a dictator, according to a survey that organisers said showed a "shocking" lack of awareness of the country's recent past among the younger generation.

    Only about half of the schoolchildren surveyed knew that West Germany was a democratic state and only a third were certain that the East German government toppled in 1989 was totalitarian.

    Academics from Berlin who carried out the research blamed values-free education that taught facts about World War II and its aftermath, such as the Holocaust and the Berlin Wall, but failed to emphasise the link with the breakdown in democracy in Germany the 1930s.

    The survey, called Late Victory of the Dictatorships?, questioned 7400 pupils from all parts of Germany aged 15 and 16. It found that about one third thought that human rights were safeguarded in the same way by all four most recent German regimes - the Nazis, East Germany, West Germany and the present unified federal government.


    "This is shocking. These are students that have almost no political knowledge at all," said Klaus Schroeder of the Free University in Berlin, one of the authors of the study. "They have no idea about words like "Meinungsfreiheit" (freedom of speech), nor of concepts like human rights. The schools really should take action."

    Like students in Britain and across Europe, all German schoolchildren are taught about the rise of Hitler and the Nazi regime. They also have lessons on the East German Communist Party, which ran the German Democratic Republic for 40 years until 1989.

    The low priority generally given to history and social science was partly to blame, Professor Schroeder said, as well as the teaching methods. "The low estimation of historical knowledge is clearly having an effect," he said.

    While school trips were arranged to wartime memorial sites, these needed to be followed up much more thoroughly with lessons on how racism and the failure of liberal democracy led to particular events in history, the study recommended.

    Bernd Neumann, the Minister of State for Culture and the Media, who belongs to the Christian Democrats, led by the Chancellor, Angela Merkel, told Die Zeit: "All responsible people in Germany have to wake up."

    There was a marked difference between the understanding of pupils at the German grammar schools and general secondary schools for those with lower grades: 16.4 per cent of the former and 55 per cent of the latter thought that human rights were guaranteed in all four German regimes.

    The students most able to tell the difference between dictatorship and democracy were those in the states of Thuringia and Saxony Anhalt, which were in East Germany, while those with the least idea were from North Rhine-Westphalia, which was in West Germany.

    Maybe the sehr geehrte academics should ask themselves a question or two about 'Meinungsfreiheit'? Where is Horst Mahler these days, btw?

    Oh the irony

    It proves the point that "political correctness" (aka censorship of 'disliked' opinions) makes stupid. PC twisted terms so long and thoroughly to make them sound nice and fluffy that no one knows what - and how - to say anymore.


    Hmm, is there some hope in the fact that a good portion of our youth thinks that the Third Reich held up OUR human rights?

    They fill up the schools with imbeciles and smarts together and wonder about the low standards. The number of immigrant children in German schools is nauseating. They don't understand German sufficiently to know what the teachers are saying.

    Many of the muslim kids hear very different things from their parents about A.H.

    Beside that the Free University of Berlin is a commi fortress. whatever comes from there is suspicious. most likely they prepare more indoctrination classes and public funds for it. All under the title 'Kampf gegen Rechts'. fight. The nationalists.

    Oh noes! What a terrible thing he must have done, for it could not simply be something that he said, could it? For in the BRD there is 'Meinungsfreiheit' for all.

    The saddest part of it all; I have seen rapists and child molesters get about 3-5 years tops many, many, many times, and someone who has an opinion and expresses it gets twelve years; irrational doesn't begin to describe it.

    Oh it's rational. You just have consider who or what is being affected by the "crime". The act of voicing an unpopular, controversial yet logical and natural opinion is bound to stir something in the minds of the public and the people in charge know this. An unfavorable shift of popular opinion for those in charge is what they fear most. The suffering of a few ordinary Germanic children, women or men is no big deal to them, in fact it's nothing at all as made clearly evident by those offensively short sentences given to the rapists, pedophiles, etc.

    I don't find this situation to be shocking at all!

    There are times when I cannot tell the difference between 'democracy' and dictatorship. BTW, which one are we supposed to be in the UK right now ... can someone remind me?

    "This is shocking."
    Is it that shocking really? After all, aren't they made to believe that Universal Human Rights are indeed "universal"?
