"Hello, it's only me," the comedian Dieter Nuhr greeted the spectators late in the Monday evening late in the evening. Or did he mean "I am, Nuhr"? Actually the word games have long been exhausted with his name, but Dieter Nuhr can not but look around at the phonetic consistency of these two words.
That was not the reason why the clip of nearly 30 seconds caused indignation to some viewers. It was rather what came after. "It is always said that November 9 is an important day in German history, but that is, puff," he continued. "The really important day is November 8. That's when Nuhr comes in first."
Dieter Nuhr and November 9th
The fact that artists advertise in short trailers with their shows is not uncommon on television. That this suggestion is beloged with some people this time is due to the date. November 9 is indeed an important day in German history. In 1918 the Republic was proclaimed. In 1989 the Berlin Wall fell.
November 9 was also the day of the Hitler-Ludendorff Putsch (1923). And above all, this was the date of Kristallnacht, which marked the transition to the systematic persecution of German Jews.
The most born after the war is certainly the most present on November 9, 1989, Dieter Nuhr probably thought of this happy day in his easy babbling introduction.
Jutta Ditfurth is upset
However, the trailer was broadcast in an unfortunate time: immediately after the "Anti-Semitism Report", which ARD broadcast on Monday evening at 10:45 am.
The former politician of the Green Party, Jutta Ditfurth, was very angry about this faux pas and immediately thought he had recognized a large context. "An endless story – the ARD and anti-Semitism," she wrote on Facebook and called Nuhr's trailer "contemptible".
Some of their Facebook followers followed the same line and cursed Dieter Nuhr under the message of Ditfurth. A fan tried to protect the comedian. He wrote: "Maybe he really meant NURE Mauerfall and 1918."
