Germany: History atlas to remove antisemitic passage

Via the Watch Project and Hamburger Abendblatt:

The DTV Atlas Weltgeschichte (World History Atlas) will finally change an antisemitic passage which appeared in the past 42 editions.

In explainig about Jewish assimilation in Europe, the atlas said that the Jews aquired the cultural values of the "Wirtsvölker" (the 'host' people).  This biologically-colored term was used by the Nazis to describe their view of the Jews living as parasites among them.
