Since I wasn't born here, I know nothing besides the various official records. My mother's family spent the war in Kiel, which was (and still is) a major German naval base, and was attacked very often.
There is no place for revisionism in remembering death and destruction: That, and the response, was brought upon the people everywhere by the Nazi regime, and all those who didn't oppose them.
"No more wars" is also why there simply is no alternative to the European Union, faulty as it may be.
@galaxis There is an interesting documentary by SWR about Freiburg during the time of the WW2. Seeing the KaJo filled with people and flags of the time is weird, to say the least.
@galaxis Actually, I mis-remembered the time covered: it covers 1910-1970 roughly, cf. https://www.swr.de/geschichte/freiburg-der-film-die-geschichte/-/id=100754/did=13864148/nid=100754/1vvcclf/index.html
