The two exceptions to rules in Germany seem to be queues and speed limits. Within each German city, the ruler granted the Jews a certain number of rights in a charter.

The German term Mitteleuropa (or alternatively its literal translation into English, Middle Europe [35] ) is an ambiguous German concept. [35] It is sometimes used in English to refer to an area somewhat larger than most conceptions of 'Central Europe'; it refers to territories under Germanic cultural hegemony until World War I (encompassing Austria–Hungary and Germany in their pre-war formations but usually excluding the Baltic countries north of East Prussia ).[ citation needed ] According to Fritz Fischer Mitteleuropa was a scheme in the era of the Reich of 1871–1918 by which the old imperial elites had allegedly sought to build a system of German economic, military and political domination from the northern seas to the Near East and from the Low Countries through the steppes of Russia to the Caucasus. [36] Later on, professor Fritz Epstein argued the threat of a Slavic "Drang nach Westen" (Western expansion) had been a major factor in the emergence of a Mitteleuropa ideology before the Reich of 1871 ever came into being. [37] In Germany the connotation was also sometimes linked to the pre-war German provinces east of the Oder-Neisse line [ citation needed ] which were lost as the result of World War II, annexed by People's Republic of Poland and the Soviet Union, and ethnically cleansed of Germans by communist authorities and forces (see expulsion of Germans after World War II ) due to Yalta Conference and Potsdam Conference decisions.
