Thank You Val,

deaf people who had a trip to the USA told me about the sign for Germany in
ASL ,
Here in Germany we sign it like (b)
Its interesting to me to look at the roots. What is associated the first
Sign for Germany - does anybody know?

Anke has been in Egypt a while ago. She told me that they sign Germany
referring to the Nazi-cross at the upper arm -
It must be interesting to learn from other countries and their point of view
-

Thanks again -
Stefan
