oh, Hello old

What does Germany teach their kids...

About the two World Wars? I mean I've heard that England does a brief glance at the revolutionary war so what does Germany teach about the two World Wars?

  • Every country has a dark part of its history. America had massive inequality until the 60's, Germany started some wars. We have to learn from that though.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Viper Skills I think it would be in their best interest to begin teaching their youth about it. After all, the newer generations weren't alive for it and can more easily accept the fact their nation has a rough history (which nation doesn't?) I would find it awkward to be a German these days. Or perhaps a German youth who has to learn via the internet that his nation was responsible for the only two World Wars to date. The Russians don't shy away from their history or genocides and nor should the Germans. Interestingly enough, the brutal history of Russia is actually infused with the identity of being a Russian in the first place which is the polar opposite of what Germany seems to be doing by not teaching their youth about World War II.[/quote] As I understand it, the German government has made it mandatory in most schools to learn (if not briefly) about both wars. Something about not wanting to have it happen again. Most Germans are embarrassed to hold their own flag nowadays. [Edited on 12.06.2012 5:15 PM PST]

  • *Little Jimstaffel German brings a flag to class* Teacher: "Put that away before anyone sees it!" *Little Jimstaffel puts the flag in his backpack" Little Jimstaffel: "Herr Teacher, why is it wrong for me to show my patriotic pride through carrying a flag around?" Teacher: "Once upon a time, a little boy just like you brought a flag to school. Do you know what happened next?" *Little Jimstaffel shakes his head* Teacher: "We committed mass genocide and started a war that spanned continents! NOW NEVER EVER BRING A FLAG OUT IN PUBLIC EVER AGAIN!"

  • I think they have to teach the kids about everything germany did in the war. I think they said in the show I watched "we have to make sure things like this never happens agian" or something along those lines.
