    Do you have a family member that did serve in the Nazi army?

    Do you have a family member that did serve in the Nazi army?

    Just an interesting thought. Id like to see how many users on here had a family member who served in the Nazi army. Poll voters are anonymous if you feel uncomfortable to share this information.

    No "No" option: Yes, so if you didnt have a family member who served in the Nazi army, dont vote, simple as

    I can see this thread going south...
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    I can't see it getting many responses, both because I don't think that statistically there would be many members on the board with relatives who served the Nazi regime, and if there aren't, I can't see many of them wanting to dscuss it.

    No, I have two uncles who served in the U.S. Army and one who fought on Utah Beach on DDay. Do you have anyone in your family who fought for zee Germans?

    Probably, but they would have been a distant cousin. My family left Germany more than half a century before the Nazis took power.

    Not that I know of.

    My family left europe long before the Nazi party came to power in Germany, so any relations would be distant.

    However, I know that I had an uncle who served with the US army in the pacific, fighting the Japanese. Iwo Jima was one place he mentioned, if I recall correctly. He died several months ago.

    Don’t know much about the rest of my relations.

    I have a question for the OP, however.

    What prompted your thought which led to this poll?

    Just interested really. Would be nice to know someone who had a Nazi in there family at some stage; because it would be nice to know someone who had a second hand account from someone who was in the army. You don't hear many stories from the opposition side of the war. So if you are one of those who had a grandfather or uncle who served and told you stories, please do share them here.

    What is the point? Germany had a draft going on at the time and pretty much every male ended up serving in the army. My great grandmother was a Jew living in Holland who managed to survive and probably also has some distant relatives who served with the Wehrmacht.
