Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If you're discussing attitudes remaining, perhaps under new disguises, then your comment can be taken at face value, though i'm not certain that't enough to buy your thesis.

But if you're really talking about "these people," i might remind you that a 16-year old emergency conscript at the end of the war would be 82 this month. and most of his surviving comrades would be mid-80's to mid-90's. Commanders perhaps older. Thus not particularly dangerous. Nor even particularly present.
