Do you think present native Germans..who had relatives that fought for the Nazi regime..honor them? Even though the holocaust took place..
Yes. The Democrats still honor the Nazi eugenics program here in the U.S. It’s called Planned Parenthood.
Yes. They are called neo Nazis and they fly the confederate flag because the swastika is illegal over there
The only Germans I’ve met hope people won’t hold the Nazis against them personally. Some claim they didn’t realize what was going on with the death camps.
I bet a lot of them treat it like the creepy uncle no one wants to see or talk about.
Privately, if they are old enough to remember them, but not formally or publicly. Similar to the way some families don’t disown (for reasons I don’t understand) their criminal relatives, but they often don’t advertise their relationship with them either.
I’m proud of Uncle Hermann.
They probably do. When we like someone we tend to make excuses for them. It’s probably, to a lesser extent, similar to how we honor our ancestors even though we had camps for the Japanese. Lately though the SJWs run thick in Germany so who knows.
Interesting question. Are you trying to equate it to honoring Confederate soldiers?
No..I’m not equating it to anything..it’s just a thought I had..
Ok, but could an equivalency be made? Even if you don't agree with the cause, they were your ancestors, and presumably fighting for what they believed in.
Sure..an equivalence could be made..if you wanted to..

This is an odd question. No. I don’t think they do. They may make excuses for them or distance the relative from atrocities (as we all do) but no....honor them? No. Well, Himmler’s daughter does. She’s a Nazi. I’m not sure about Etta Goering.
