..embarrasing himself

It is arrived the time to make English a better language? In Castellano there is a precious concept: vergŁenza ajena
Deutsch altready upgraded with the fremdschšmen neologism.

I dont think 'embarassing himself' it's enough: can other's shamefulness rend better the concept?

    huh? can you translate whatever you're saying in simple english?
      yes: the shame, disgrace, ignominy, embarrassment, shamefulness, bashfulness, abashment or shamefacedness that you feel for others, when they pose themselves into an embarassing situation, with their words or acts.

        um, ok :/ what?
      Discipulus wants English to have a word that already exists in other languages. The word expresses the feeling of you being ashamed of the behaviour of other people, as opposed to your own.
