    Is the point of the poll really curiosity of first or second hand accounts of the other side or is this some sort of attempt to bash people for the actions of their relatives?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Obviously, if you didn't have a relative that served in the German Army, you wouldn't vote and the answer is automatically, uh, "no".

    I have a cousin that served in the French Foreign Legion. Does that count?

    I even made a point of making the poll anonymous voting. Seriously, why do some people on this forum assume the worst of others? Why should anybody be ashamed if they did have a relative in the army; its not them who signed up for goodness sakes.

    Well my Great Grand Pa got captured in combat and was forced to work for the Germans, while my Granddad was held in a concentration camp where his job involved being a human mine field clearer.

    I don't even have a family member who served in WWII.
    My grandfather was career air force, and eventually rose to the rank of colonel, and died in an accidental plane crash in Vietnam. I think he might've been in Korea, too.
    But he missed WWII; he was still in college at the time.
    It's a shame, because I really would've liked to have had a relative in that conflict.
    I would've been proud of that.

    edit: oxymoron, I like your signature picture thing.
    I have a tattoo of that on my left shoulder: the pyramid with the eye on top, and the "Novus Ordo Seclorum" banner. It was my first tat. I can't even remember why i wanted it now. I just thought it looked cool.

    Because it is usually born out. Those posting polls almost always have an agenda.
