Germany stripping words with Nazi ties from phonetic alphabet 1

Germany is restoring Jewish names that Nazis stripped from its phonetic alphabet more than 75 years ago.

Adolf Hitler changed the alphabet in 1934, a year after he ascended to power — subbing, for example, Dora for the letter D instead of David and Nordpol (North Pole) for the letter N instead of Nathan, the German wesbsite DW reported.

Only a handful of countries have their own version; most rely on the well-known NATO version — “a is for alpha,” “b is for bravo” and so on.

Most Germans don’t even realize their alphabet has Nazi overtones because it has been used for so long.

Michael Blume — in charge of fighting anti-Semitism in the state of Baden-Württemberg — pushed for the change with the support of the Central Council of Jews in Germany.

By next fall, the German Institute for Standardization will draft an alphabet made up of city names. The new list should go into effect in 2022.
