  Germans - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Germans (German: die Deutschen) are defined as an ethnic group, or Volk, in the sense of sharing a common German culture, speaking the German language as a mother tongue and being of German descent.
The result was German colonization as far East as Romania, and Slavic colonization as far west as present-day Lübeck (at the Baltic Sea), Hamburg (connected to the North Sea), and along the river Elbe and its tributary Saale further South.
In addition, a significant number of German citizens (close to 5%), although traditionally considered ethnic Germans, are in fact foreign-born and thus often retain the cultural identities and languages or their native countries in addition to being Germans, a fact that sets them apart from those born and raised in Germany.

The Germans cannot also explain the big hole in the starboard front bulkhead 3.10 or maybe they were not aware of it.
The Germans were apparently mislead by the Commission, which suggested the same thing - that the visor hydraulics had broken the superstructure structure - even if the Commission said it was before the listing occurred at 01.15 hrs, when the ship was upright.
Therefore, in its later findings 1999 and conclusions the Germans, like the Commission changed its mind about the sequence of events, and actually suggest that the hull of the 'Estonia' was leaking before the sudden listing and that it caused the sinking.

The Germans' love of nature and matter-of-fact approach to sex are "the legacy of their forest-dwelling ancestry," we are told.
Growing up as an "Auslandsdeutscher" (German raised in foreign countries) I early on came to understand that NOBODY understands the "Germans," not foreigners with their cultural/ethnic/political biases (even if they are positively inclined), much less the Germans themselves with their "unbewaeltigte Vergangenheit" (unprocessed past).
So, his attempt to get more understanding of Germans from the German language itself makes all the sense in the world to me. I also appreciate his notion of what he calls the "polyhistor." This is the only book in which I've seen this term.
