    Having lived in Germany in the early 1970s, the people still appeared to have a lot of nationalistic behavior from earlier times, even with the Russians in control in East Germany. I remember wanting to visit Dachau for the historical value and feel of that timeframe of the 1930s and 1940s. Nationalism at any cost after WWI and Hitler's rise to power by those people left citizens in many countries vulnerable to the plans of a despot and people who put him in power.

    In the 1970s, it was still hard to find where this camps were. People seemed to deny that they even happened when not many miles from where people lived.

    The feelings in the camp and buildings with horrendous purposes and where activities took place we don't like to discuss, was still a place of reverence for those that died and a remembrance of those that were able to escape death in other places.

    The 1970s we had Americans like Angela Davis that were in Europe giving speeches and politicking against our country and our national policies trying to stir the nationalistic interests against our country.

    We have high officials doing that today. Adversaries within.
