Summary
Speaking from the point of view of the new generation of Germans in 1968 (50 years after the end of World War I), characterizes World War II as a change in the song "The watch on the Rhine" to a fictional song "The whine of the Kaiser" (referring to Kaiser Wilhelm II), reflecting the bellicosity of Germany that led to war. Concludes by recognizing the new rulers of Germany are sane and unlike the previous Kaiser.
