For many apologetic Germans, former Eastern Germany serves as a lame excuse for racism in Germany. But it cannot hold water. 20 years after Auschwitz, neo-Nazis were sitting in parliaments of many federal states of WESTERN Germany. And the leaders of the actual neo-Nazi activity in Germany are to be found in the West. The reason is clear. Western Germany never broke with Nazism. All the old Nazi elites could continue to function in that part of Germany, because the giant reeducation program by the Western allies was cancelled due to the Cold War. Professors responsible for the euthanasia program could again train a new generation of doctors, an employee of the Goebbels ministry even became chancellor. The reason of the neo-Nazi activity of today is to be found in the inactivity of yesterday.
