You won't find anything remembering Hitler, but 'Bismarck towers', 'Bismarck memorials', 'Bismarck' as brandy, 'Bismarck herring', 'Bismarck archipel', 'Bismarck places/streets', ...

I've heard that because Germany has basically ignored the years 1941-1945 that their is still a Nazi party and they have considerable political power. True of False?

The years between 1933 and 1945 is the best taught time in any history class.

Anything related to national-socialism is illegal in Germany by our (constitution and) criminal law.

A particular family guy episode addressed this topic. Brian and Stewie were touring Germany and the tour guide left out the Years 1941-1945. So Brian asked about it, and the Tour Guide said "NOTHING HAPPENED!!!" and Brian said "Ya, you guys invaded Poland" and the Tour Guide said "We were invited, they had Juice and Crackers!!!!" or something like that, it was pretty funny.

Those were the years of WW2

and I guess they used those years to symbolize Nazi oppression or something, I am not really sure.

I'd give the nod to Otto von Bismark (i'm assuming you don't mean Herbert)--without whom there would have been no Germany for the Austrian Hitler to exploit. That it has managed to survive the Nazis, and to eventually prosper means that Bismark did his task well, despite having sown the seeds for the disintegration of the Imperial political machinery.

"Nothing bad happened!"

"We were invited! Punch was served!"

"@#$$%#!%#$.."

"Yes, in Munich we have many fine breweries."

Despite what Family Guy joked about Germany's redemption has been exemplary. Simply exemplary. The Japanese could learn a lesson from them.

I was only wondering, if that tour guide really didn't know that WWII started with the invasion of Poland in 1939 (it's okay for Child ["I'm in America and you know us Americans if it happens out of our borders we don't care about it."] but not for a German!) and who actually thought that was pretty funny.

It was a cartoon tour guide Walter. I'd not take it that seriously. The tour guide was talking to a talking alcoholic dog and a maniacal baby with a head like a football.

Context is king.

The football headed baby could be the greatest character ever.
