Prince Georg of Prussia: do not let yourself be stigmatized by past; we must live with the bad and the good

August 7, 2014

According to the Irish Times:

“I have never let myself be stigmatised by my past,” he says. “We cannot choose our past; we have to live with…the bad and the good.”

“Prussia has always polarised opinion, but I think we’re coming to a point where an objective view of things is finally possible. …[T]here is a new readiness to see things in another light, another context.”

“What I find a shame,” says Prince Georg, “is how, to this day, many historians swallow the Nazi propaganda and see a straight line from Frederick the Great to the Third Reich.”
