The more german words I memorize, the better I get at memorizing new words! So if you’re new to learning a language and worry about not being able to memorize vocabulary, please, don’t give up, start with a few words and you’ll eventually get better at retaining new vocabulary in the future!!!! It WILL be easier for you!!!
maybe i misunderstood. i think it's unfortunate if you feel like you can't listen or appreciate your national anthem because of germany's history. obviously nazism was/is horrible, but there's a lot germany could and should be proud of today. many countries, mine included, celebrate what our country stands for through the anthem. i don't think germany stands for nazism anymore, nor should the anthem. so i think it's sad/unfortunate if you can't listen to yours w/o fear of nazi accusations.
