Seoul Apple Store with Nazi Toy display

This whole Nazi thing isn't really a big deal in Asia. I mean, it's a big deal, but not with the negative connotations such things have in the West. Imagine going to an Urban Outfitters and finding a Nazi themed display in the store. Everyone would go ape shit, and the store would be in disgrace.

I dunno, this is just a weird thing, but I guess I'm sort of glad to see Nazi Germany treated with some objectivity as opposed to the "Nazi Germany was Evil" edict we're handed as early as elementary school. Prejudice is rarely a productive part of educating oneself.
