Better than you

Ein paar Jahrzehnte Verdrängung
und jetzt gibts Erinnerungsorte
Museen und Guido Knopp
Das reicht dann aber auch
für die Rückkehr zur Normalität

Nationalstolz, Exportweltmeister
und Weltmacht
und mit gutem Gewissen
lässt sichs auch besser Krieg führen
Aus Auschwitz lernen
heißt moralisch Siegen lernen

---

Better than you

Some decades of repression
but now there are memorial sites
museums and TV-documentaries
So this should be enough
to go back to normal

National pride,
world champion of exports
and global power
with a pure conscience
it’s much easier to fight wars
Learning from Auschwitz
means learning to triumph morally

---

For some years now german politicians openly speak about their ambitions to make Germany a global (war leading) power again. Often this is justified with the “successful” struggle to come to terms with the past: Openly admitting the german guilt for the Holocaust shows their moral superiority which automatically qualifies them to “solve” problems all over the world.
