The Financial Times (HT: Pamela) writes about young Americans, who go to German high schools "to help reverse Germany's transformation from best friend of the US in Europe to a stronghold of anti-Americanism." The Atlantic Review wrote about this project in July: Frustrated by Anti-Americanism, US Exchange Students Try to Change German Attitudes.
The Financial Times article ends with an explanation of Anti-Americanism by Stephan Bierling, professor of international relations at the University of Regensburg:
As the Israeli psychoanalyst Zvi Rex once said, 'The Germans will never forgive the Jews for the Holocaust'. I say they will never forgive the US for the liberation. We never quite got used to being the bad guys. Many see the US invasion of Iraq as a licence to step out of that role and capture the moral high ground. Some of what is bubbling up today is very old indeed.Endnote: You can also Rent a German.
