Jerry Kraut, president of the German Anti-Defamation League, made a statement earlier today decrying the way Germans are portrayed in World War II movies. "We are deeply troubled and offended by what has been coming out of Hollywood over the past 65 years. Why can't there be positive German characters in these films? Instead, Germans are portrayed as racist and aggressive, while wearing comical "coal scuttle" helmets and field grey uniforms. There is clearly a Zionist conspiracy to make us all look anti-Semitic."
The German Anti-Defamation League was founding in Buenos Aires in 1946 to combat negative German stereotypes.
