In truth, there were NO nice, remorseful murderers, but some have to express remorse now. In particular, the lies about the Waffen SS being only in combat are atrocious. There were 38 divisions of them and all were guilty of massacres, rapes that Himmler condoned and burning villages and people. The Wiki leak also has the account of the source of the term "playing bayonet baby', a game they enjoyed-you can guess what happened to babies. They also started the widely used method of killing babies, especially if they cried, by grabbing the baby's ankles and smashing it against a wall. At NUREMBERG, the Waffen SS was found guilty of so many atrocities that Germany decided that none would ever get retirement or other benefits. So, the old guy saying he was proud to be such a fine combat soldier ONLY is possibly mooching off relatives.
Our troops always said, sarcastically, that "there are no Nazis in Germany". Most realized that admitting what they knew and what they did meant major trouble or death. The countrywide fairy tale that "it was secret-we never knew anything" began. At least in this film several people admit the carnage they saw. The "Student" that argued with a Nazi that had the sense to be ashamed, shows that being honest still makes many Germans angry.Someone should point out that Hitler could have created a German Utopia with the billions he wasted killing people
Germany showed the world what happens when insanity is rewarded.
