Yes, Stefan that is roughly correct. My point being that German families found it hard to feel or show pride in their loved ones sacrifice in war, as the cause for which they fought was deemed tyrannical and evil. My wife is half-Austrian and I have been fascinated over the years to listen to her Austrain families stories and experiences during WW2. These include losing a great-uncle to the Russians on the Eastern Front and her grandmother having to defend her Great Dane dog from ending up in the cooking pot of the advancing Soviet Army. For me it showed quite clearly that everyone suffered in one way or another and family loss in war is the same the world over, regardless of which side you are on.
