I'd like you to know that I'm not as anti-German as you may think. Maybe it's the lack of skills in using English that made me post a not entirely unequivocal message.
I certainly do not think that each and every German who lived during the WW2 has Jewish or Polish blood on their hands, and that is not what I tried to say.
What I ment was that a powerful group of Germans and their perverted leader Hitler wouldn't manage turning Germany into what it became, if they hadn't had this sort of silent support, or maybe lack of opposition, from the society. I also recognize that it's hard to stand by your beliefs when there is terror on the streets and you're surrounded by people ready to report on you. What's more Germans cultivated the cult of power and obedience for hundreds of years, so they had it even harder.
And the reason why I wrote Germans instead of nazis is I want to protest against shifting the responsibility for the war from real people who were behind all this to some virtual group of people called "nazis", or even, as you stated in your post, Hitler alone:
say bad things about German people because of what Hitler did
I know that's not what you mean, but this kind of expressions, along with "Polish concentration camps", published in western media may cause some people to actually believe that Germans were the true victims of their own war. I think that's what Erika Steinbach thinks.
I'd like to think that contemporary Germans have changed their ways, but from what I've experienced they still like to look down on Polish people, but not each and every one of them :)Celiński
, you're right, "Stalin" wanted this war as bad as "Hitler" did.
