Well, to my understanding, the Japanese aren't even well educated in their own history. Not surprising they don't have a grasp on European/world history either. But I agree with the person who wrote this: the designer should have a responsibility to what they design and put out in the market, especially knowing that their market is not well-informed on the subject.

Because I mean, the plushie and the pin are sort of offensive but not that bad, but that dude's t-shirt? Um. NO.

And wtf is up with all of these assumptions that the Japanese aren't educated about the Holocaust? Bullshit.

I think us Europeans in general were brought up with a whole different comprehension of what happened in the past during WW2.

Oh, really? Remember Prince Harry dressing up as a Nazi for Halloween? Or how about the people who throw swastikas around like they're funny. This shit isn't limited to Japan. Europe isn't any more "enlightened."

Ugh, this article.

I'm honestly not surprised by this, considering the horrible job that Japan has always done of treating its own war crimes (which, unlike Germany, they have never been tried for). They were buddy, buddy with Nazi Germany at one point, and they have not recognized their role in WW2 either.

I'm not really surprised either. There's been so many controversies about Japan failing to recognize what happend at Nanking, the experimental camps, the rape, the "comfort women" Japan took from Jorea, China, and the Philippines...

They don't like talking about it. But as many MANY people have said, there's no excuse for their willful ignorance to what happened back then.

Some things should simply be left alone...:\

jesus fucking christ Japan, really. You can't use something like this as a 'fashion trend'. And the argument that they don't know it's wrong is bs.
I'm not surprised really :\

If there were no internet, I could see it. But no. No excuses now.

While I think it's pretty awful, I also kind of see it in a "The Producers" sense, I guess. I wasn't really appalled, but the shirt does push it a bit too far.

Springtime for Hilter was so epic. XD

Pin & plushie is cute.
I had to do a double take on the T tho' yet I still feel indifferent about it since I'm from East Asia and we don't know nothing about Hitler *sarcasm* I was made to memorize my history lessons in order to pass my exams only. There's no emotional connection to it for me to be disturbed or offended.

Hmm I wonder if there're any fans dressed in SS uniform during Japanese premier of Inglourious Basterds..
