No Support to Nazi Mass-Killers

Dear Mark,

A great testimony of yours, below.

I myself have a resasonable experience with German people, including my family. My experience is enough to say that the German people went far beyond the old Nazi illusions or hatred to Jews.  

Can you tell us when exactly was published this text by Angus Carter, in FOHAT? 

Best regards,  Carlos Cardoso Aveline
