Germans are increasingly ashamed of their country’s Nazi past, a poll found. Results of the German-Jewish Dialogue survey published this week found that two-thirds of Germans express “absolute” shame over the Holocaust, up from 60 percent in 1991. According to the poll, the number of Germans who think there was “some good” in the Nazi regime has fallen slightly to 40 percent, from 41 percent in the previous study. One thousand Germans were polled for the survey; no margin of error was given. Researchers involved in the study said respondents who were likelier to sympathize with the Nazis tended to be elderly or relatively uneducated.
