AFIK, the Federal Republic of Germany is one of the most responsible and successful nations on earth. It is considerably more highly regarded across the world than is the United States, or even the United Kingdom.
To regard roughly 12 years (1933-1945) of the history of the German peoples - spanning over a thousand years - as defining the national character in perpetuity, is inaccurate to the extent of suggesting racial bias. It would be as logical to regard Abou Ghraib, or the My Lai massacre, as typifying the American character.
The German contributions to western civilisation - from philosophy, music, engineering, etc. so far eclipses those of Johnny-come-lately migrant societies as to not warrant further consideration. We have the motor car because of Germans, we have the printing press because of the Germans and English, and we have the like of Beethoven, Mozart, and Mahler because of the Germanic people. We also have the English language because of Germanic culture.
