Wow...next time you act all Hitler-wannabe, can you not be so blatant about it?

Can someone give me a comprehensive translation of this? My brain hurts in five places whenever I look at it. :(

Doing great, as in losing a couple million men and big chunks of its territory?

I had to stop reading the threads on this discussion board after a while. I was starting to feel the need for a bath and a decontamination treatment.

And here I was thinking that Germans were doing great because of the Chinese people.

Germany was in the shitter, they owed BILLIONS of dollars in war reparations. Inflation was so bad that $7000 in 1922 became $1 in 1923.

If this were post-WWI Germany, this idea would be a bombshell! Heil biochemistryclues!

Hyperinflation was worse than that. They used money as wallpaper and to keep warm because it was cheaper to burn than firewood.
This essay is fascinating * * * * *
(The Serpent's Egg by Ingmar Bergman is a fascinating movie too!)

I thought they were actually holding most of the jobs Germans didn't want to do.

Germany was doing great until an inbred christian emperor came along and fucked it with republicanesque foreign policy.

After WWI the Jews was singled out because they were an easy target, as they have been for a thousand years. Rather than stealing from the Germans, they were successful business men, who made lots of money. (Not all of them, but many enough for people to notice.) When Germany was destitute after the war, Hitler wanted someone to blame everything on (like you now blame everything on Obama).
The real reason was that it was not really fair to blame the whole war (WWI) on the Germans, and to tax them for this til the last Pfennig. If the German people had not been so humiliated and poor, they would maybe not have listened to Hitler. But hindsight is always more clear...
