You'll recall Ronald Reagan took Claus' nephew to the Bitberg cemetary (Jewish war heroes, iirc) and caught crap for it.
German FR posters report Claus is revered there, and not because he was a Jew hater, but because he helped end the shame Germany felt because of Hitler.
Ashamed of Hitler as failed military strategist or genocidal maniac? Like he never read Mein Kampf? Like he did'nt know Jews were being stripped of their buinesses and fortunes? Kristallnacht? None of this was a secret.Maybe I should give Bin Ladin a break for his early indoctrination? The real heroes were gassed and turned into ashes.The real heroes took a stand in Warsaw.
