comment What is the meaning of the dative in this sentence: “Dem Tod die Toten.”
Remarkable how the poem paraphrases the passage from the book! Is this a well known poem and phrase? In the English speaking world "to be or not to be" contains connotations not inherent in the phrase itself because it stems from such a famous play; can the same be said about "Dem Tod die Toten"?

Could you please clarify how this relates to the question? I don't quite see the connection. :-)

Please correct my German examples, I'm sure they are (not only corny, but also) abound with errors.

@ams: And yes, German news is quite easy to understand since it is spoken slowly and in perfect standard German ("Hochdeutsch"). You need a quite big vocabulary, though.

Yes, I tried lots of stuff! I bought books in both paper and audio form (Verbrechen is excellent) so that I could read along with what I was hearing. At the beginning this was too difficult; I had to translate first, then listen. Then I progressed through watching news and dubbed movies (which is easy) to watching talk shows and German movies (which is hard).

+1 Gigili, this is nice addition to the previous answer, but I still accept the other one since it answers the question more directly.
