For me, this dosn't look like an intership, more like slaveship. What happend to "don't be evil", or isn't this true for Google Germany?

I once heard tales about Google, how they treat their employees, that they have the chef from the Grateful Dead, that employees work for one day a week on their pet project, that milk and honey flow in vast streams on the Google campus.

This must be some other Google.
