In his book, At Memory's Edge by James E. Young, the author states:
In fact, unlike Germany’s near obsession with its Nazi-past, Austria’s relationship to its wartime history has remained decorously submerged, politely out of sight. Austria was a country that had (with the tacit encouragement of its American and Soviet occupiers) practically founded itself on the self-serving myth that it was Hitler’s first victim. That some 50% of the Nazi SS was composed of Austrians, or that Hitler himself was Austrian born was never denied. But these historical facts also never found a place in Austria’s carefully constructed post-war persona.
How did "de-Nazification" efforts by Austria's occupiers proceed post-WW2 as opposed to in Germany?
