    Joe do a Podcast about the Japanese during this time as well. Unit 731 as some of the darkest history of the war. Not to mention the rape of nanking.
    The United States let a lot of their officials off the hook as well at the end of the war.

    Nonsense! Academic fencing has been around in student culture in Germany and other European countries ever since the 16th century. It is a fraternity thing - Drinking, brawling and swordsmanship.

    The facial scars were not a Nazi symbol but a Prussian military tradition.

    Yo I'm German and I have a few friends that are members of fencing fraternities and they still practice dueling and some of them have scars, even though its rare. Its not a Nazi thing, it was even done at Oxford and other elite universities in Europe (mostly in Germany and Austria tho). Also it exists since beginning of the 18th century so its much older than Nazi Germany. In fact the Fencing was even prohibited at all German universities following the Nazi partyline, so the Nazis basically ended that tradition and there are only roughly 300 fencing fraternities left. You can look it up on Wikipedia if you search for "dueling scar" or translate the more detailed German article "Schmiss".
    Edit: Another thing that might be interesting: We visit concentration camps as schoolkids. I was in Ausschwitz and Dachau with my schoolclass when I was 13 and 16 I think, and we saw those photographs that Jacobsen talked about, that show the evilness of Nazi Germany and fascism. U can imagine the impact of such photos and the overall darkness of those places to a kid. This visit is part of our socialization, so something like Nazis will never happen again. (And personally it also motivated me to become vegan. Another area where we treat the vulnerables like shit, systematically.)

    Maybe clarifying the dueling scars:
    In Germany there were (and also still are) brotherhoods/fraternities and one of the traditions is to fence without masks.
    Having a scar is a symbol to show you're part of this elite club, so while many occurred during actual fencing, some are cut deliberately.
    The reason high ranked Nazis had those scars is that it's a very elite club and when you're in, the network will help you out in getting a high ranked position in a company etc.
    so obviously the most prestigious position during that time was a high ranked one in the regime. The fraternities wanted to best people to be in and of course the most ambitious people often wanted to be part one.
    (If I remember correctly, Hitler was part of a fraternity as well, but I might be wrong)
    Having such a scar doesn't necessarily mean that you were a super extreme, high ranked Nazi but there is a correlation why many high ranked Nazis had those scars
