geoduck42: The store-owner is quoted as claiming that he didn't know who Hitler was, and got the idea from a family nickname. This is India and not Europe or the US, but still.. if he's telling the truth.. wow.


Can you blame him? I mean, not a whole lot of people have ever heard of Hitler. Up until last week, I honestly thought he was the right fielder for the Astros.

"Shah insisted that until the store opened he did not know who Adolf Hitler was and that Hitler was a nickname given to the grandfather of his store partner because "he was very strict"."

Plus, my grandmother had nothing but the utmost respect for the Jewish community. When I was a kid she told me to always treat the Jewish kids with the utmost respect, or they'd put the sheni curse on me.

Maybe it would be best if he just got out of the clothing business and tried something different, like say kitchen appliances.

It is believable. A lot of non-western nations were relatively untouched by WW II culturally speaking. As a result, Hitler and the Nazis are viewed more as historical figures rather than monsters.

Genghis Khan was the Hitler of his time with Mongol conquests killing some 30-60 million people.

Hey, he had train schedules that ran like oiled machines, summer camps with modern shower and oven facilities, and oversaw a huge staff of bureaucrats who could tell you where anyone was at any given moment in time.

What's not to like?

Eh, the ignorance of the uneducated masses frequently knows no bounds, particularly when it comes to history in a faraway part of the world. Most Afghanis have no idea why there are U.S. troops in their country.

I have no idea why there are U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
Other than the poppy trade.
