Not wishing to glorify the Nazi Party merely pointing out the 'enthusiasm' that it evoked ... also the reason why BAOR existed (yes I know there was an earlier BAOR) ... have a look at one of my web sites below ...

Looking at the photo of the girls "saluting" Hitler. My Mum would have been about their age at the beginning of the war. Makes you think doesn't it?

Yeh there were no nazis after the war. Wonder where they all went? Liars were all sieg heiling with the best of them.

If you watch the old films of those days, some of the women were close to orgasm by the look of it when he made an appearance. Thankfully the British have an in built aversion to turning our politicians into gods or dictators even if one or two try.

"Yeh there were no nazis after the war. Wonder where they all went? Liars were all sieg heiling with the best of them."

Yes indeed, although there was a bloke used to drink in the Schnelle in Oerlinghaused who claimed to have been a member of the Allgemeine SS.
