Nazi anthem lyrics used in mix-up


www.news.com.au



SWISS television station SRG has apologised for mistakenly putting the words of the old Nazi Germany national anthem as subtitles instead of those of the present German one before the Euro 2008 Group B match with Austria on Monday.
Both the Nazi version and the present-day one come from the same song, 'das Deutschlandlied' composed by August Heinrich Hoffmann in 1841 from music by Austrian composer Joseph Haydn.

"It is an inexcusable error," one of those in charge of the subtitling service for the station told Blick, though he added it was the fault of two young female editors.

Used in its entirety as the national anthem from 1922, the Nazis, once they came to power, only sang the first verse.

Post World War II Germany sing just the third verse, and not the lines that inadvertent viewers were treated to on Monday which included 'Deutschland Deutschland uber alles.'

How would you get this wrong. I wonder if it these editors where trying to say something and making a political statement?

Listen, don't mention the war! I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it alright.

It's just different verses of the same song isn't it? What's the big deal really? It's not like there was the regular version and the Nazi Remix.

Haha if you are looking to get fired this is an awesome way to go out - gotta have a dark sense of humour to appreciate it though

I always thought the words were "Abovetopsecret über alles, Über alles in der Welt". I wonder if the other mods know? I'll ask them at the next pow-wow...
