[quote=article in the first post]Dimple Kumari, a research associate in Pune, has not read Mein Kampf but she would wear the Hitler T-shirt out of admiration for him. She calls him “a legend” and tries to put her admiration for him in perspective: “The killing of Jews was not good, but everybody has a positive and negative side.”
“but everyone has a positive and negative side” She just dismissed the Holocaust as a reason not to wear a Hitler t-shirt. :eek:
A little bit on the film about Hitler:
“Dear Friend Hitler” aims to give audiences a glimpse into Hitler’s “insecurities, his charisma, his paranoia and his sheer genius,” according to a statement on the film which will go on floors next month.
Sheer genius?! :eek:
Thankfully, the leader actor had the good sense to pull out of the film, but only after protests.
When I first saw this thread, I thought it might be related to the Hitler themed restaurant which opened in India a couple years ago. The owners changed the name from “Hitler’s Cross” to “Cross Cafe” after protests, but I don’t know if they changed the theme.
And then there was the home furnishings company which came out with a Nazi themed line of bedspreads. :eek:
The fascination with Hitler, as a strong leader, is interesting and a bit worrisome in the world’s largest democracy.
