2020 marks 75 years since the end of the Second World War. Do Germans today still feel responsible for their country’s past? And is it ever okay to laugh about Hitler? For this week’s Meet the Germans, Rachel meets Timur Vermes, author of “Look Who’s Back,” and finds out more about Germany’s “memorial culture.”
Rachel moved from the UK to Germany in 2016. As a relative newcomer she casts a fresh eye over German clichés and shares her experiences of settling into German life. Every two weeks she explores a new topic – from allotment gardens to money to language.
