Well, they are trying to remove it. My money is on them actually getting it done, however.

The last part notes there are other " militarists and colonialsts" among the other honorary citizens listed containing 121 names and it ought to be reviewed because it's "unbearable" that names such as Otto von Bismarck remain on it. Don't shoot, just translating the news!

Bizarre.

Rewriting history to fit a snowflake agenda. Things happened in history that wouldn’t necessarily be acceptable now. That’s why it’s called history and not the present.

Tossers.

Rewriting and erasing history is a popular pastime of the left in the US also. Little by little, inch by inch, step by step.....

More outrageous 'Wiedergutmachung' gone crazy from the gutless Germans, who are taught to be ashamed of their own history and heritage.

Berlin has always been a haven for far-left wackos, much like San Francisco or LA.

I think history has been rewritten since pen was put to paper, or stylus to wax.

It's good to see that they are taking care of important things like this instead of concentrating on other pressing problems!

I bet Paul Hindenburg is all upset about this.

Oh wait, he’s dead and won’t care what a bunch of worthless snowflakes do.

His place in history is safe and assured.

They, on the other hand, are cyphers and will not be remembered by anyone.

Hear, hear! My grandfather revered the Feldmarschall, and went to his funeral at Tannenberg in 1934.
