Hi people :)
I am a teenager from the Czech republic.
I was in Germany as an exchange student. I was about to spend one schoolyear there but after 5 months, I had to leave that country.
First I'd like to tell you that before I travelled to Germany, I really loved that country: The people
were often very friendly to me and my family when we spent our holidays there, I loved Bavaria and Bavarian food, I was totally in love with the German language and I wanted to move there and to spend my whole life there. But now I have a different point of view: I was too young and stupid. The real Germany is different.

I tried to make new friends all the time but almost every time I thought I found a new friend, it was a mistake: We laughed together, I heard:"Oh, wow, it's so fun with you!" and so on and the next day, that person acted like:"What? Who are you? I don't know you, please, let me alone." I was never able to understand this.

I had quite good marks at school and some of my schoolmates didn't like me because their marks were worse. They were just walking around me and ignoring me.

The next thing which shocked me was that many Germans (at age 30-35+) didn't even know that my country isn't Czechoslovakia anymore.
A lot of my schoolmates also asked me what time it is in my country, if we have mobile phones there, if we can make a driving license there and so on. I thought they were joking but after some time it got serious and they acted to me like:"Oh my God, that is the dirty Russian!" and they told me I was very "Ostblockmäßig".

When I asked my host family if they are going to visit my country, when I leave, they told me:"No, sorry, we're afraid that our car will be stolen there"

Once my host father told me:"Why can't you finally get it? People here don't care if you're Czech, Polak, Ukrainian or Russian. When you hear Chinese, do you recognize that that person, who is speaking, is Chinese and not Korean or Japanese?"

Germans were talking about me like about a monkey who came from a land which is full of protitutes, drug dealers and drunk homeless people. But they didn't even know that Prague is the Czech capital.

Turks, Muslims, black people, Asian people - they all were ok and welcome for the Germans but I was the only bad one.
The other exchange students were from Finland, Norway, France - they were all very popular and everyone wanted to be their friend but who did care about me? Nobody.

The next thing I minded a lot was that everyone thought they can do anything they want to me and I would never defend myself. And they were right: every time I said something, my host family was angry and I had to excuse myself and then I was better saying nothing. So many people were still insulting me there and joking about me.

I could never recognise who liked me and who didn't, the Germans were so cold!

But yeah, I met also some very good and friendly people who I still stay in touch with until today.

But at the end, I was so disappointed that I had to leave Germany immediately.
But still I learnt one very important thing: I learnt to love my country and to be happy for the place I live in. I am never going to leave my homeland and to live abroad. My country is maybe not as rich as Germany but the life quality is very very good here and the people are different here: They are mostly friendly, open and outgoing and if they don't like you, they tell it to you and walk away. In Germany NOBODY ever told me that, instead of that, the people were telling me: "Yeah, it's ok, we like you." and then they were acting bad to me.

So that's my story. I always wanted opinions from other people about this so that's the reason why I have wrote it, I don't want to insult anyone.

Thanks :)

You are completely correct.

Germany is a hell hole - a false land, a land of arrogant assholes who always think they are superior to everyone else. It is not something you experience just by visiting this country in one day, but it is something you learn about them that is deep-rooted in their culture, in their way of life. It takes a few months before you start to see their true personality (i.e. mask slip off to reveal the Ugly German). Then you start to realise, that this ugliness is not the exception, but the rule, and they say it is their "culture" and that you must adapt to their way of doing things. Ha, no thanks - i plan on leaving this garbage dump immediately.

Germany is one of the worst places to live and we should make the truth be known to everyone so they avoid the same mistake to come here to live. People are worse than garbage, they always stare directly at you, watch your every move, and then talk bad about you behind your back. They are NOT trustworthy, most of them have an arrogant, criminal behavior, and will do anything to cheat you if you are a foreigner. Oh yeah, and most Germans are extremely ignorant about other countries, but will say that everything "Made in Germany" is a superior product. Their ignorance knows no bounds, except they will never admit they are wrong, and they always insist that they are always right.

you both are right ! Germans are only friendly to tourists because they think they bring money in.

What you said is exactly how most of us feel here living in Germany. So dont be mad my czech friend.

I had one ring the police on me and said I had stolen
his property because I said I had never seen so many fat,ugly men congregated in the one country as Germany.It is not true and I was being a b*tch but what a reaction.Still you see them running around with eastern European wives and forking out hundreds of euros to f*ck black women and Ost Blok sheisse in brothels-preferably half their age.The Polish are not very nice I discovered.Czech I find nice though.I am ambivalent about Germans myself.Germany-quick visit as tourist and get out ASAP.My advice.

Petulka, ignore them, they are fools. I have been to Prague and it is one of the most beautifully, sophisticated and developed cities in Europe, most of Berlin is much poorer and fortieth than Prague. The czech republic is a prosperous and developed country, it is nothing like poor parts of Russia, if Germans are too stupid to know which countries are wealthy and developed and which countries aren't, it must be a lack of good education. I can't believe they asked if Czech people had moviles phones, what a pathetic thing to say or think, Germans are so stupid, they don't realise that most European countries have a richer and better quality of life that them, and that eastern and central European countries have much faster growing economies than Germany

Another reason why Germany needs to be severely punished and brought to its knees. I hope the NSA intensifies spying against that ugly, boring, miserable Kraut Bitch Angela Merkel. Germs deserve the worst.

I think your problem is that you overestimated Germans. According to what you related, they are no different, as people, than anyone else. There are people, who act like that in every country in the world, even in the ones that you would never choose to go to. This just shows that loving one particular group of people is not a good idea. It's better to look at people from a different angle. For instance, differentiating people between good and bad no matter what country they are in, it will be much easier for you to cope with incidents as a result of human nature, and you can survive anywhere you want to be in. You do not even have to bring forward your ethnicity or national origin, or recognize that in other people. Simply look at it as something irrelevant. People, will be less likely to use such things against you. It's better to have the "So you're saying you're German...well, it doesn't matter" kinda attitude. Turning into a patriot or chauvinist, might also disappoint you at some point, when somebody within your country does something wrong to you. Just think of how Germans turned on Germans during World War II. Some Germans immediately dissociated themselves from the Nazi, as they didn't like what Nazi were doing, and you'll see that leaving Germany is not really necessary as there is scum everywhere. Not to mention, there are Chezks out there, who can make it in Germany. You probably wonder how... What can also help is periodically switching your focus from people to the things you enjoy doing. Culture, language...things like that. It can be hard after somebody has harmed you, but wounds do heal pretty quickly sometimes. If you've traveled and lived across the globe, you probably know that this strategy is a life saver and works great on people. It may even make human rights kick in for you since there are some in Germany.

Germany is much admired in the world.
If your propaganda campaign based on your personal failures and hatreds doesn't gain any traction , only one conclusion is possible; you're stupid.

I guess it also depends on the German. Some are tolerable while others are insufferably self righteous and arrogant. People do not have a problem with Germans because of WW2, for it was 70 years ago and there isnt anything anyone can do about it. People have a problem with how Germans act now. From their ridiculous claims to their historical revision, and their perverted excuses and justifications for the 3rd Reich. The also seem to posses the attribute of being obtuse and block headed. I mean WW2 essentially bankrupted Europe while Germany got the biggest loan in history after the war and had their country rebuit, free of charge. While the UK was saddled with horrendous war debt that they just finished paying off in 2005. The UK had to pay off debt for 60 years over a war that Germany wanted. Bv Germans dont realize this and continue to display that same annoying nationalism

Just another German punk. You are great at stirring up chaos and creating trouble. I can't stand a lot of you, not just because your egoistic, but because you have trouble admitting a fault or a mistake. You can't take criticism and you have no shame. You were helped in more ways than one after the war, yet you don't care or realize it.
I know this to be true because I ve spent time in North and South Dakota, 2 states that are the most heavily German in the US. Along with Wyoming, Minnesota and Wisconsin. All these states had people who acted the way I described.
Then when I went to places like Texas. I was overwhelmed with the friendliness and openess.
Wherever Germans seem to live, no matter where it may be. The mood is always negative

Texas? Really? Texas is the worst state of the USA. It is very conservative backwards and there is still the death penalty.

But actually all states of America are bad because they are full of Americans.

Agreed 100%. We here in Scandinavia also hate Germans, they are considered loud, rude, obnoxious, stingy, and also their language sounds like Hitler. And they stick together like a clan of Nazis wherever they go abroad and cause tons of trouble. We should deport them back to Krautland asap.
