Sir -- Aengus Fanning's article ('Why Merkel needs to remember the war', Sunday Independent, August 28, 2011) should be well noted for the unerring trajectory of his penetrating analysis into the national psyche of present- day Germany.

Will the Germans learn a little humility? There was something very wrong with the concept of the euro from the outset; the Germans knew this, and still went ahead.
