Back in the 1930’s people generally thought the swastika symbolized a forward looking movement in Germany. They even thought it might be good for all of Europe, especially in the aftermath of the Great War. That’s why the character in the Hollywood movie “The Women” referred to a swastika as a relaxing, peaceful symbol. It was the sort of thing you might put on a T-shirt if that had been in vogue back then. Remember, Hitler was Time Magazine’s Man of the Year in 1938.
