It is true that D-Day goes unnotice in Germany. It's sad to say but while I grew up in Germany until I left to move to the United States I had never even heard of D-Day. Granted the allied invasion in Normandy is common knowledge, however not cause to reflect on what that meant for Germany, after all is was the beginning of losing the war. Why would you want to remember that? Credit for bringing freedom to europe, who are you kidding, you wouldn't want to admit the U.S. is going good in the world. The post-WWII world view held by Germans today would be disturbed. So I wouldn't expect any mention of the achievements of the U.S. in europe in the years to come. Sadly today's youth has moved even further away from associating with the values of ango-america than at the time I lived there.
