Some University art director thought Hitler belonged in the same category as pop culture's greatest heroes:

What isn't addressed in the article is how HORRIBLE the mural art is. I could see this as maybe high school quality--but a University art department? This is the best they got??

So weird. And I just heard a story the other day how Hitler and Nazis have become a large "fun" pop-culture thing among Asian teens.

A few years ago a holocaust survivor came to my work and spoke about his experiences. One of the things he said that stuck with me was that the general who liberated his camp was so horrified at what he was seeing that the first thing he did was tell everybody within earshot to find a camera or do everything they could to get as much of the press there immediately. His other officers were confused and didn't understand so they asked him 'why?'.
His answer was that what they were seeing was so monstrous and horrifying that if they didn't record as much of it as possible, in 50 years nobody would believe it ever even happened.

I don't think people necessarily think the atrocities of the Nazis and Hitler are "funny"... I just think that it's been so long and there are so few who are alive now who went through it, that it's becoming harder and harder for people to believe it was real or to take it seriously.
I just visited Dachau and even after the holocaust survivor spoke, I wasn't prepared for what I saw there. I can't put it into words how it felt to be there - the word "surreal" doesn't even begin to cover it.

It's amazing that you say this, because my 11th grade history teacher told us the same thing back in 1995. He said the liberators wanted as much caught on film as possible so nobody could ever say it never happened.

It's always the survivors that get to write the history books. If people don't document everything, then eventually, someone's gonna come along, and either deny it, or make up a story to make themselves seem better.

I do find it humourous that when asked to use the Beetle in the Transformer movies, Volkswagen said no. They didn't want to be associated with war. Also, the nazi swastika is basically banned anywhere in Germany. They edited Castlevania (or was it Wolfenstein) because it contained swastikas.

Basically... History is always being denied/re-written to fit with whatever powers are in charge at the time.
