The old lefty adage is that "people are people" right? So that means 1930s Germans are the same as you and me. That also means that if you unknowingly swapped places with them, you'd likely be doing the same things and the same crimes. They're not 100% off the hook of course, but at least a portion I feel are victims of the circumstances they find themselves in, following the beat of a few truly evil men. Most people don't have the confidence or stamina or whatever to follow their own thoughts to the point of real hardship, and simply follow the crowd. It is afterall the easiest path.

If, by "truly evil," you are referring to Adolf Hitler and the National Socialist leadership, what makes you think they are any more evil than other wartime leaders whose actions led to the deaths of many people?

I'm not saying Hitler was a good guy. I mean, look what Germany eventually turned into. He is very much responsible for that. But he wasn't the Most Evil Man in History™ that the (((media))) makes him out to be. If anything, Stalin was worse.

These German soldiers were just fighting for their country. Unless they were being told to personally shoot or gas innocent people, they had no obligation to disobey their leadership. If anything, blatantly disobeying military leadership without good reason would have (rightly) been seen as desertion or betrayal.

Marketing

The reward for victory/defeat.

How about a Jew and a canoe? What's the difference there?

The Jew doesn’t tip

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.

I knew this one but was waiting for Kona to deliver his punch line. I didnt want him to feel bad

Here's one to make him feel better

An elderly Jewish man faints and is rushed to the nearest hospital. A nurse tucks him into bed and says, “Mr. Schwartzman, are you comfortable?” Schwartzman replies,

“Meh...I make a living…!”
