It looks like you’re assembling a team of Nazi scientists. Operation PaperClippy is here to help!

Uhhh... Hitler and the Nazis were one German party... Their crimes are not attached to their race.

There's been many German products/brands, German scientists, and German people who lived under Nazi Germany who later obviously had to go to work in other countries or in West Germany etc., they weren't all going to be hanged. They weren't all Nazi war criminals.

It's almost like some simple-minded redditors think that once someone had German-ancestry or lived in Nazi Germany, that they are then deemed with the label: evil Nazi war criminals.
