Historische Aufarbeitung - das Buch: 'Das Amt und die Vergangenheit'

Karlotta BahnsenOctober 28, 2010

#Germans have fervently believed that the country's foreign ministry was a centre of resistance against the Nazis. Legend says that most officials did not support the racial fanaticism and genocide. But a new book has just been published entitled "The Ministry and the Past" - and it refutes this theory. The authors maintain that the German diplomats fully supported the madness purportrated by the Nazi regime. One of the co-authors has gone so far as to call the Foreign Ministry during the Nazi government a criminal organisation.
