    As the grandson of a Holocaust survivor, I'm so very proud of modern day German society, the legal system in Germany is actually more aggressive about WW2 war criminals than Israel itself. Many civilizations around the world have their own dirty laundry. The "Ottomans" for example, won't ever have the courage to own up to the many massacres they've committed Kurds, Armenians and so on. Even Tibetans, Sudanese and I can literally go on about who has been a "true" victim of intended extermination. Germany today, is the ONLY society who has NO FEAR airing out their dirty laundry, correcting the damage that was done by an era of their ancestry, and doing it with such vigor that should be modeled after by other societies. Kudos to Germany indeed, and I say this as the grandson of someone who passed away with his ID number still tattooed on his forearm, because he refused to have it removed. Kudos to Germany indeed.
