Regarding the editorial "Weimar Redux?," Dec. 2: The violence against foreigners and refugees is very regretable. The editorial acknowledges that Germany is very generous toward incoming people, and that the country has absorbed a much larger number of refugees than the rest of Europe put together.
I object to the statement that "there is missing from the German political leadership an understanding that Germany can't be just for the Germans anymore." This statement is unusual when I compare it with the United States: all of the stories about workers sent back to Mexico, or the number of Haitians returned to their homeland. R.
