Nazi chic in the new Myanmar

“Myanmar’s government-issued history textbooks contribute to this strong leader perception because they do not describe Nazi atrocities, according to Metro.

“They talk about the Treaty of Versailles after World War I, and that the situation was very bad in Germany, that Hitler was a strong leader, and that many Germans felt that the Jews, who controlled the economy, were responsible for their troubles,” Metro, who can read Burmese, said in summarizing Myanmar history textbooks. “That’s strange because it doesn’t say, ‘And they were wrong.’ And it doesn’t mention the Holocaust.”
