There is nothing wrong with Innocent Fascination on the subject of World War 2 German History.
I personally collect artifacts, historical items, and propaganda posters and such, I also perform in war reenactments and am a volunteer in a group that strives to preserve all history , whether it be the enemy's or the victor's.
I've always been fascinated by Nazi history because not only was my family a part of it, but because much of it is so shrouded in controversy and distaste, that people are most of the time ignorant of the truth.
There WERE gay nazi soldiers.
Himmler was on a grander scale worse than Hitler in the 'crazy' department.
They were the prime creators of the Volkswagen. (you'd be surprised how many people don't know that)
Despite the atrocious ills that they commited upon humanity and the world, they had successfully pulled their country from a detrimental and lethal depression, and became close to a superpower nearly overnight.
Despite the atrocious ills they committed upon twins and children, the Medical studies that were produced greatly aided the world.
What many people don't know.
Germany wasn't the only one who had Concentration camps. The United States created many for Japanese American citizens after Pearl Harbor, while they did not exterminate, they were brutal and heinously vile towards the people within them.
Germany was damn close to creating the atomic bomb before the United States.
Their studies helped create the fighter planes that we have today.
I just wish people would remember that it wasn't the Nazi grunts who were evil, but the people at the puppet strings. But hell, I'm the kind of person who will sympathize with any enemy I hold.
I greatly respected my enemy in the Iraq War, because they were fighting for something they believed wholly in. That, I can't help but admire.
What I do hate are neo-nazis, you know, the ones who are absolutely fucking disgusting. I don't think they realize that Hitler would probably find them severely repulsive. Severely so. In all honesty, half of them look like overgrown, inbred babies.
THere is a difference with fascination with the History, and fascination with being a dumbfuck.
