德国敦促日本诚实对待二战历史 附评论!

译者:R@G     发布时间:2014-05-27     超过 0 位网友阅读



BERLIN — Germany said it tried to deal “honestly” with its World War II past and urged Japan to do the same after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to a controversial war shrine.


“I do not wish to comment on questions related to Japanese domestic politics,” Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman Steffen Seibert told reporters Monday when asked about the surprise Yasukuni shrine visit which enraged China and South Korea.

当被问及安倍访问靖国神社激怒中韩一事时,默克尔的发言人Steffen Seibert对记者这样说,“我不想对日本的国内政治做出评论,”

“But in general, all nations must honestly live up to their role in the horrible events of the 20th century. Only on the basis of this honest accounting is it possible to build a future with former foes. This is a conviction Germany takes to heart and which in my opinion applies to all states.”


Abe sparked anger in China and South Korea last week by visiting the Tokyo shrine, which honors Japan’s war dead, including several high-level officials executed for war crimes after World War II, and serves as a reminder of Japan’s war time aggression.

安倍上周因为参拜靖国神社引发了中国和韩国的愤怒,靖国神社 供奉这数位二战犯下战争罪行的高级官员,这一行为被认为是日本战时侵略姿态的再现

The visit came at a time when Japan’s ties with China have turned particularly sour over a territorial dispute regarding islands in the East China Sea.


Foreign ministry spokesman Martin Schaefer added that Berlin was following the “tensions in the East China Sea with some concern and very closely”.

德国外交部发言人Martin Schaefer还称,德国正密切关注着发生在中国东海的紧张局势。

“In our view it would be helpful if all sides strived for restraint and moderation and jointly sought a diplomatic solution for running conflicts and, in particular, avoided unilateral steps that could heighten the tensions in the region.”


Germany takes pride in what it sees as its own earnest effort to atone for its militaristic past and the murder of six million European Jews in the Holocaust, although critics say it still has more to do.

There is no country more in the position to criticize Japan for it s b s white wash of Imperial Japan predations.
Hear! Hear! for Merkel!



David Franklin Delano Norton Jan. 01, 2014 - 07:12AM JST
Well, I think actions speak as loudly as words in this comparison of Japan and Germany. Germany has atoned on economic, social and political ways with its former enemies and educates its population on the Holocaust and Germans role in it. Japan whitewashes the past and has intensely hated Chinese and Korean peoples and country since the end of W W I I. Angla Merkel is 100% correct and I am very glad she said what she did.


Horrified tom Jan. 01, 2014 - 07:36AM JST
The apologies need to keep coming. The problem is that the current leadership is trying to whitewash previous atrocities. So other nations get nervous to watch history repeating it self. This is like a precursor to W W I I.


J j dick Jan. 01, 2014 - 11:17AM JST
So, in short, Germans are saying that China and Korea should shut up, in an extremely polite and smart way. I love them.


Be ware of it Jan. 02, 2014 - 03:38AM JST
We take note of the Prime Minister’s expression of remorse for the past and his reaffirmation of Japan's commitment to peace.
Japan can not be trusted. Aggression is her way of life



David Franklin Delano Norton Jan. 01, 2014 - 07:28AM JST
May be a more accurate statement would be that Japan has never been forgiven for what it did in W W I I. No body accepts the apology the way it is given. May be it is culture maybe not. But I have never felt that Japan or most Japanese are sorry for what occurred in W W I I. And may be the U S A did drop the A- bomb but didn't they make Japan their biggest ally and give Japan preferential economic assitance and trade e t c.
Actions speak louder than words in cases like this and Japan's apology does not seem true to the world


C l x Jan. 01, 2014 - 07:35AM JST
It's sad hearing people here badmouth Chinese people (all the time) based on prejudice feelings. People seem so brainwashed here and scared to form an opinion of their own.


Asian home town Jan. 01, 2014 - 07:43AM JST
I hope Japan will listen and stop trying to revise history and admit to all the wrongs committed by the imperial Japanese government. Japanese politicians claim they have apologized but continue to deny or justify the use of sex slaves, deny Nan king massacre, and so on. If Japanese truly has repentant then fully admit to all the crimmial acts committed by the imperial army and stop trying to revise history books and e t c.
Atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were terrible but can not compared to the number of innocent men, women and children the Japanese army have killed and raped (over 20 million during the war



Andreas Zachcial Jan. 01, 2014 - 08:08AM JST
The U S is mostly to blame for the japanese failure to deal with its past.


Athletes t Jan. 01, 2014 - 08:54AM JST
Unlike Japan, Germany is the role model of Europe. It has strong and stable economy. It is helping the recovery of debt ridden and highly unemployed E U nations. It is friendly and tolerate with neighbors. Un like Japan,Countless flip- flopping apologies are counter productive and more inflammable.


Nos tro mo Jan. 01, 2014 - 09:16AM JST
some things every one should keep in mind:
Japan has apologised numerous times for the events of W W2:



Rsgz 4gg 7y 2Jan. 01, 2014 - 09:24AM JST
It has been a while since Germany gets to take the moral high ground.


Tont tu l Jan. 01, 2014 - 09:33AM JST
No use arguing whether Japan has apologized or not. The difference between the two former "war- criminal" states is evident: neighbors don't trust Japan in East Asia, whereas Germany is relied upon in the E U, Japan should seriously consider where and how things went wrong in its post -W W I I history. We can not afford to allow Abe to make history repeat itself.


Sake town Jan. 01, 2014 - 09:38AM JST
Chancellor Merkel needs to understand that the Japanese have dealt with their War History.
If Ms. Merkel would like to pay a vist to Hiroshima and Nagasaki every August 6th and 9th, then she will hear so many Japanese talk about how horrible War really is and how their country must never take unilateral steps including preemptive Warfare ever again.



Ma vik Jan. 01, 2014 - 10:16AM JST
Wouldn't it be a simple fix to the whole issue just to move the 14 "convicted war criminals" to another site


D a v e y Jan. 01, 2014 - 04:16PM JST
The Japanese were far worse than the Nazis for brutality, we never nuked them enough in my opinion...


Free at Will Jan. 01, 2014 - 10:22AM JST
Merkel's best and most honest comment in ages.


J j k Jan. 01, 2014 - 10:32AM JST
There is no use being serious about it. They want to hate Japan.


Hiding out it Jan. 01, 2014 - 10:45AM JST
I think Yasukuni Shrine should take more responsibility to explain what they are.


Navy C D R Jan. 01, 2014 - 10:47AM JST
If Japan allows theirs text books to reflect reality in the thirty years leading up to and through W W2, then their apologies, such as they are, might be more believable.


David Franklin Delano Norton Jan. 01, 2014 - 10:50AM JST
Well, Japan's apologies are clearly inadequate. Japan is playing with fire...


Nat haw Jan. 01, 2014 - 10:57AM JST
Angela Merkel is one of the most successful German P M and unique female politician. Although I am not a German, I admired her about almost every thing. She has strong analytical thinking and clear vision. With out her, E U is just a history now.


P s o t Jan. 01, 2014 - 11:05AM JST
Germany has no any current disputes with it's neighbors but Japan has some issues with all it's neighbors and that's why chancellor Merkel do not wish to comment on Japanese domestic politics and recent Abbe's visit to war shrine. Merkle also advice not to forget the past and that is what Abbe did by visiting war shrine.


Oi kawa Jan. 01, 2014 - 11:35AM JST
I was in Korea a few years ago and met a Japanese guy and a German guy at the hostel, and the Japanese guy said exactly this to the German guy. "You apologised for your war terrorism. Japan doesn't. I respect you!" Or some thing like that.


Mit suo Matsu ya ma Jan. 01, 2014 - 11:43AM JST
As if China and Korea were innocents. Every one made mis takes in the past. The difference is that Japan is living in the present and ROK and PRC are still living in the past. PRC killed thousands of the people in their own nation as well as many Vietnamise ladies and soldiers, Tibetans, etc... ROK killed and raped vietnamise ladies as well. Both of these nations made such blatant mis take way after the end of the W W I I. So, if there are a country that need to deal with the past, those countries are ROK and PRC and not Japan who already apologized for such mis takes in the past. ROK and PRC should and must apologized to Japan and other Asian nations for making such blatant mis takes.



Simon Foston Jan. 01, 2014 - 11:47AM JST
The Japan of today is a very different place than Imperial Japan.


Tina wat ana be Jan. 01, 2014 - 12:14PM JST
China threat is imminent. Japan has no time listening demanding of more apology. Japan should build up military and prepare for the worst.


C C H Mar Jan. 01, 2014 - 11:43AM JST
China is not the only neighbor of Japan that needs to worry about Abe. Taiwan, South Korea and Russia also have long-running territorial disputes with Japan. Hopefully he will not drag the U. S. into such disputes....


Ms hr ktn Jan. 01, 2014 - 01:11PM JST
What is "honest"? Comparing Korean, Chinese and Japanese history book in each school, J P N is the most clear and based on the facts. Of course, there is no Nanking but there are comfort women.


Ko buta Chan Jan. 01, 2014 - 01:22PM JST
I guess, German Government will sign very important trade agreement with China soon.


Go kai_ wo_ mane ku Jan. 01, 2014 - 04:16PM JST
Japan's number of tourists exceeded 10 million for the first time this year. 60% of the tourists came from China, S. Korea, and Tai wan. That is 6 million. So lots of people from China, S. Korea, and Tai wan don't care at all about any of this. My experience in China and Taiwan shows this too. No body cares about the islands or Yasukuni.


An bin h Jan. 01, 2014 - 11:34PM JST
Countless apologies and financial compensations are not honest ? Nah hh , I don't buy this. Germany may just to score some points to get some more business from China. That makes sense.


Justice z Jan. 02, 2014 - 03:38AM JST
Shameless J P is still blar blar. All world is watching. What a shame!**
