Facing up to war actions of the past

In 1995, 50 years after the end of the Second World War, Austria passed legislation to create a 50 million dollar fund for Nazi victims in an attempt to face a past where Austrians no less so actively participated in the crimes of Nazi Germany (Hitler himself was "Austrian"). The fund will be established for some 30,000 people who were thrown into concentration camps because they were Jews, Communists or homosexuals, and for those who fled into exile.
After the war, many Austrians chose to regard themselves as the first victims of Nazism. They suppressed the reality of the masses who cheered German troops marching into Austria, of Jews who died at their hands, of the many Austrians who enthusiastically took up arms and other Austrians who were responsible for Nazi atrocities.
