Classy stuff

In an ever shrinking world the chasm that seperates us is still rather wide it appears. Today's Daily Telegraph shared this little gem: Hitler menswear store upsets Jewish community

If you're not prone to clicking on links to get the whole story I'm leaving you with this:

In India - Men's wear shop

So, the owner of the shop was apparently shocked when he learned what the name Hitler coupled with the swastika really meant - he's changing the name of the shop!

  1. I may be wrong but, well, if you make a fuss about the name it kind of gives the man enduring fame and power? I mean, it's a name and it's in India, it's not like this shop is in Golder's Green or Jerusalem, is it? And the swastika? No mention in the article but I am hoping it's being used here in its original Sanskrit meaning?

    I am not a holocaust denier, btw, far, far from it, it was the greatest evil of mankind and showed us at our very worst, but, well, hmmm


Have your say. Go on! You know you want to.
