I have done lots and lots and lots of talking in my lifetime SFA, but not so much now. I seem to like the quiet reclusive times now. I just enjoy being old, and don't talk much now.

They still sang the Panzerlied in the Bundeswehr until it was banned about three years ago.

Tink -- banned, more than 70 years after the end of the war? Do you know why?

"Panzerlied was composed in 1933.[2] In 2017, the German Army was banned from publishing song books containing Panzerlied and other marching songs by the Minister of Defence Ursula von der Leyen as part of new efforts at denazification."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panzerlied

But the Bundeswehr still marches to Preussens Gloria (Prussia's Glory), composed in 1871.

Well I am glad they can still perform the Preussens Gloria. Do you yourself have an opinion, does banning that inspirational Panzerlied help divert away from more Nazism? When I was a child 1950's, certain books were banned from libraries...later years it was commonly agreed that was not good...what do you think about the songs?

The words in Panzerlied aren't overtly Nazi, so it wasn't as if it were like, say, the Horst Wessel Song.

But it probably was enough for Ursula von der Leyen that it was composed during the Nazi era. And yes, I agree that the ban won't do much good. I bet the soldiers still sing it in taverns, for example, or at other non-official gatherings.

Got it Tink, tx. I have real doubts about prohibiting things...too much like censorship. But perhaps Ursula knew what she was doing here, a good reason. I do recall it is (or was?) illegal to be a Holocaust denier in Germany.
