This Thanksgiving, I met someone who fled TO Nazi Germany.....

She lives in the same Senior Living center as my MIL. She was born in Lithuania and her family fled to Germany when the Russians invaded in 1940. Her father was dragooned by the German Government to translate for foreign doctors who had been moved in to Munich to serve the local population (the German doctors had been moved to the front to treat the soldiers). They ended up in the American zone after the war, and eventually emigrated to the USA.

War is complicated.

Just like a unit of the Nuremberg Trial security guards were ESTONIAN WAFFEN SS soldiers...

True story.
