I find it interesting that in Germany it is against the law to display the swastika flag and it can get you 3 years in prison. All WWII monuments are tributes to the victims of the Nazi regime. In the American south monuments were erected to glorify the oppressors' not the victims. In 1933 Albert Einstein fled Germany to escape the Nazis only to run headlong into American racism. He became a champion for civil rights in America.
