With World War II rapidly approaching, there was a call for the Volksdeutsche, - people of German heritage outside the Reich to return home to the Fatherland and help defend it.

  • Hmm American Germans go back to the Motherland, seems like Uncle funny little mustache man was a very compassionate and great leader towards his people and heritage. Also the documents, records and estimates of German Americans that fought alongside the war were destroyed? Hmmm Aye Tony?! Why do we have records from the Red Cross about the hollow bunga? Seems like another billion is added each year? but a few German American records got 86ed? I dunno Tony, something smells fishy right here. Seems like the those big noses had a hand rubbing in 86ing a few documents.

  • I feel like the video kind of overblows the sympathy German-Americans had towards the Nazis. The vast majority didn’t let the ill-treatment during WWI make them sympathize with the Nazis. It’s a bit of a sore point for my family. My grandma’s father was the son of German immigrants, while her mother was the daughter of Swedish immigrants. As a child, she was talking about the war with one of her Swedish cousins, who then said, “Well, you’re German…” and my grandma got so mad. But her father served in the US Army during WWI, and her brother was in the USAAF in WWII. They stayed loyal to the US

  • I feel as if the treatment of Germany after world war 1 directly led to the rise of Adolf Hitler I feel either way World War Two was going to happen with all the restrictions placed on Germany it would’ve happened But with the Anti German hysteria as you put it probably led to a large growth of extreme ideals like those of Hitler and his party I kinda wish we treated Germany better after World War One because I wonder if Germany without the rule of Hitler would’ve fought differently and in turn probably wouldn’t have committed the crimes against humanity

  • Japanese-American Combat Team The 442nd Regimental Combat Team was a regiment-sized unit of the United States Army during World War II. It was composed almost entirely of Japanese Americans, except for officers and other personnel. They were deployed to the European front and fought bravely against the Axis powers. The total casualty rate was 31.4% (with a total of 9,486 casualties). It is also known as the most decorated unit in the history of the United States. During World War II, approximately 33,000 Nisei served in the U.S. Army, most of whom were assigned to one of three units: the Headquarters, the 100th Infantry Battalion, or U.S. Army Intelligence.
