The Germany National Anthem

Though nationalism is unfairly, and incorrectly, linked to nazism (it existed before Nazi Germany), the nation itself has a long, rich history outside of that dark period.

The German National Anthem is called, “Das Deutschlandlied.” You can hear it by watching the video below:

English Translation

Germany, Germany over all
Over everything in the world!
When it comes to protecting and defending,
Our unity unites us.
From the Maas to the Memel
From the Etsch to the Belt,
Germany, Germany over all
Over everything in the world!
Germany, Germany over all
Over everything in the world!

German wives and fidelity,
German wine and melody
Shall all persevere in the world.
Their fair and ancient tone,
Resounds in us our noble goal
Throughout our entire lives.
German women, German trueness
German beer, and German chorus!
German women, German trueness
German beer, and German chorus!

Unity, justice, and liberty
For the Fatherland!
Let us all strive for that
In brotherhood with heart and hand!
Unity, justice, and liberty
Are the foundation for happiness;
Bloom in the radiance of this happiness,
Flourish, ‘O Fatherland!
Bloom in the radiance of this happiness,
Flourish, ‘O Fatherland!
