Germany: All together.. Don't mention the war!

"Hitler books 'show new obsession gripping Germans' By Kate Connolly in Berlin (Filed: 25/03/2005) The intimate details of Hitler's life - from his fear that his lavatory might be poisoned to his habit of scratching his neck until it bled - are obsessing Germans once again amid a huge revival of interest in the Nazi era. New titles about Hitler are flooding the bookshops to satisfy the hunger for revelations about the period in time for the 60th anniversary of the end of the 1939-45 war. One columnist has likened the plethora of publications to a "garish circus of commemoration". "Sixty years ago the Third Reich perished," wrote Jens Jessen in Die Zeit. "Now one gets the impression it is being resurrected on a daily basis." ....A poll published yesterday showed huge sympathy for Right-wing extremists among Germans from the capital and the surrounding region. National Socialism "had its positive sides", thought 15 per cent of Berliners and 20 per cent of people living in the neighbouring state of Brandenburg. At the same time 12 per cent of Berliners and 24 per cent of Brandenburgers said they wanted a "Fuhrer who would rule with a firm hand".
Nice to see that Nazi ban by the German government is working.
