My mom grew u in Europe and as a young girl her town was occupied by the Nazis during WW2. Neighbors of hers were executed for being in the resistance. After the war she emigrated to the US. Now me, an American born kid, never knew hardship, thought Hogan's Heros was pretty funny. But my mom was mortally offended at it. The thing that offended her the most was the portrayal of the Germans as silly and benign Keystone cops. To her they were cold blooded murderers. And in fact, I think she was right. Not that we as Americans aren't capable of being bad guys.
