German Tracking Report #1
The quotation has spread dramatically in English-language web pages and has even infected Germany, where various web sites have translated it into the language it supposedly originated in. When we first started tracking it in 2009, there were about 400 pages in German that included the phrase "da die Wahrheit der tödliche Feind der Lüge ist, und somit wird die Wahrheit durch die Ausbreitung der größte Feind des Staates," the phrase we are tracking in English. As of May 5 the number of page has dropped to 265 in a Google search. However, more than one site may have translated it, which might produce different phrasing. We’ll look into that as time permits.
