Germany offered millions of dollars to have a post-Second World War Germany exhibit included in the Holocaust Memorial Museum, which is due to open soon in Washington, the Washington Post reported. The proposed donation, made some two years ago, was promptly turned down, according to the US Holocaust Memorial Council, AFP reports from Washington.

Original plans for the Holocaust museum raised concerns in Bonn that US teenagers would come away with a negative image of Germany, unless the exhibits included material on the country's post-war embrace of democracy, the paper said.
