Clearly you have never lived in either Germany or France. You have no idea of the shame and retalliation faced by anyone even suspected of collaborating with the Germans during the war...even something as simple as a love relationship between a French girl and a German soldier who did not want to be involved in a war--but had no choice! Children born to such illicit affairs were treated as pariahs on both sides of the border.

Listen Johann, I've been to both countries and I've lived in Germany. Don't make all the assumptions about me, ok? This dude is full of BS. Nobody cares these days who his father was. NOBODY!

The emphasis is on THESE DAYS, but it has not always been the case.
