The Tee shirt was not just a swastika but a Nazi flag, but I do agree this was down to Thais being ignorant of the Nazi atrocities of the last century, I would imagine most Thai would not be able to comprehend 6 million.

No, the Nazi swastika is unique in its tilt and colors , it is similar to the Buddhist swastika , but not the same  .

   I am surprised that you didnt know that , especially after you stated how knowledgeable Westerners are about Asian history .

Maybe the girl band should be invited to Germany to learn all about the Holocaust and it turned into a TV documentary for Thai consumption. 

They’ve already agreed to take part in Holocaust education workshop.

aside from moving tilt and changing color is it not essentially the same?   the average person short of analyzing and inspecting the two would see the striking similarity.  my skills as a historian did not know the tilt and colors

 

an analogy is the average person likely would not see the difference between a left and right isomer chemical structure.

 

again no disrespect for the victims of hitler

Yes, I was aware of that, I thinking of taking it to higher level and educate a lot more Thais.

That's optimistic. 

I reckon 50 years from now if Israel still exists there will be similar news stories of Thais displaying Nazi stuff for fun and the Israeli embassy calling it out.

It's kind of like cleaning house. It's never finished.

realistically speaking the thai's are unable to learn from all the road deaths in their own country, even though upfront and personal seeing loved ones die for needlessly and right in their own backyard. doubt holocaust sensitivity training will go very far if anywhere at all.
