#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.

One of the co-authors has gone so far as to call the Foreign Ministry during the Nazi government a criminal organisation.
