    Sind Sie Deutch? Ich lerne Deutch, aber ich bin nicht fliessend.

    Thanks. I agree that a win for the Nazi would have been a loss for the world.

    It is very good that Tolkien has said. Aryan or not Aryan was only a question
    of time – the problem: there were people like Adolf Hitler who believed in that Aryan are better then Non Aryan, but this was an error of a whole generation and of that time – and if Germany has not lost the War II – germany were lost for the whole world! – and therefore also the whole cultur were lost – a high price for mankind!
