A research in Germany some time ago revealed that half of its schoolchildren do not realise Hitler was a dictator, while a third believe he protected human rights.
The shocking statistics also revealed a further two thirds were unsure as to whether the socialist East German Government, which was established by the USSR and collapsed in 1989, was a totalitarian one.
Only around half of the 7,400 students surveyed knew the former West Germany government was a democratic state, while 40% were unsure whether the current united German government was democratic. (1, 2)
