    Will we need to be able to read German to understand them?

    That brings up an interesting question, is Kraut a term that is still used today? Calling a German a Kraut isn't akin to calling him a bad name, is it?

    What exactly is the definition of a Kraut. (Don't tell me a smart white guy that drives a Porsche. :LOL: )

      Being born and raised in Germany (27 years) I can tell you, that "Kraut" is a vegetable, that has, at least in the rural traditional German cuisine, a high position. Now I do not know the translation to english, but you can easily look it up in a dict.

      There is "Wei├čkraut", "Rotkraut", "Sauerkraut" and others. Howeverm the Hungarian love it too ;-)

      The term,however, was never used by the Germans but by the enlish and american. It's not really a nice word for a German to hear.
