Maybe because the documentary wasn't even about the war, but the aftermath, so why in the hell would they go into the causes? There is nothing wrong with ethnic collective division, but there is a problem when you pit them against each other, and beat the war drums using the very basic instinct to fear outsiders and direct those fears and hate to accomplish what rulers wish. Yes and they use this instinct to get elected as well.
Why is it then, that we were fighting Krauts, japs, sand *******, camel jockies camel humpers? Even in the documentary, the American troops were directed NOT to fraternize with German civilians even after the war. "Germans are the enemy".
So you missed the part where ethnic Germans were rounded up in Poland and other east Europe countries. I take it you missed the part where a boy lied about being kidnapped by a an ethnic German in an eastern European country and the ethnic Germans were mobbed beaten and a number, killed? This is what I am talking about.
I guess you also forgot that hundreds of thousands of ethnic Japanese, German and Italian AMERICANS were rounded up and put in concentration camps in America. There are many many Americans that will still to this day defend that. So please don't tell me there isn't ethnic and racial or religious pandering by war propagandists.
