    I hope they think of them in a good light. Past history should be remembered but the present should be viewed on it's own merrits. The Germany of today is not the same as the Germany of the first and second world wars. People are people, lets be friends, the world would be a better place.

    Speaking only for myself, I have two stereo types of Germans that directly contradict each other! On one hand you have the German engineering ( no one can do it better ), trains run on time, no nonsense ( or humor ) German. At the other extreme there is the October fest, hard drinking, accordion playing and very obnoxious German. The truth must lie some where in between LOL! Seriously, I view them as a very disciplined people that are proud of their heritage and a close Allie to the United States.

    For the most part... Nothing. 

    The answer is sarcastic, but Americans spend little to no time considering nationalistic notions of "what a German or French or Icelandic is like".    We generally just consider everyone to be pretty much like us, but speak differently.

    I grew up wishing that I was German.  I was a strange boy, and I'm probably a strange man.

    I was never a Nazi fan. . . .BUT, German Engineering, the AMAZING ability of the German military, German work ethics, German WOMEN. . . .BEER.  Uh huh, I wanted to be German.

    Most Americans have at least some German immigrant heritage. German culture is interwoven into our own. But in terms of Germans today, Americans know that Germans are better educated than we are. This comes out when we mention German engineering. The Nazi regime that lasted ten years or so has a bigger impact on our historical perceptions than the fifty years before it or the thousand years of Holy Roman Empire before that.
