"Death is the master of Germany"

ainge

merci

via my friend viktoria, i have recieved this from dr. taubeneck, who is a german/philosophy prof at ubc (and a wildly popular one at that - one of the most engaging lecturers by far):

"The phrase means "death is a master from Germany," in the sense that death "comes from" or "originates" in Germany. "Of Germany" gives the wrong sense in English."

i read his translation and it was definitely the most beautiful id ever seen.
