Toy shop sells smiling NAZI soldiers for FUN and education

Polish toy manufacturer Cobi stated Wednesday in Warsaw that it will continue to sell its line of Nazi themed games for children to play with, because of the company belief that through fun children can be taught history.

Cobi Toys CEO Robert Podles said that if children are educated about Nazi history and WWII through toys, then such real-life events will “never happen again.” The company also produce Soviet, American and British WWII toys.

    So much of what we see as basic history, will eventually, and probably even in our lifetime, require us to explain to future generations what they find incomprehensible.
    This isn’t the teaching of history, it’s the bastardization of it.
    Soon the Nazis will just be another nation-state actor that had cool uniforms.

    • Heh;)

      A couple years ago when my brother and his high school aged kids visited, we were discussing the changes in the world since the collapse of the USSR. The kids asked, “What’s the USSR?”. Which lead to a conversation about the Cold War, the nuclear threat, etc. The kids thought we were making it up – they were straight A students and had never heard any of this before.

    Produced in Poland, one of the worst ravished countries by the Nazis in WW2
    Protested in Sweden, one of the worst collaborators with the Nazis in WW2

    Should have cleaned out the Nazis in Sweden and Switzerland in 1945 as well.

    • Sweden was neutral;)

        Sweden was the Nazis best business buddy, as was Switzerland.
        They both profited, during the war, and after the war in hiding the loot.
        As did the pope, even to this day

          The low level political leader whom the arrow is pointing at ( standing next to a Blood Order recipient!) is most definitely not the Pope…

        In theory, not in practice.

        The Swedish Government made a few concessions, and sometimes breached the nation’s neutrality in favor of both Germany and the Western Allies.

        During the German invasion of the Soviet Union, Sweden allowed the Wehrmacht to use Swedish railways to transport (June–July 1941) the German 163rd Infantry Division along with howitzers, tanks and anti-aircraft weapons and associated ammunition, from Norway to Finland. German soldiers traveling on leave between Norway and Germany were allowed passage through Sweden — the so-called permittenttrafik. Iron ore was sold to Germany throughout the war. And for the Allies, Sweden shared military intelligence and helped to train soldiers made up of refugees from Denmark and Norway, to be used in the liberation of their home countries.It also allowed the Allies to use Swedish airbases between 1944 and 1945.
