  • SS Disneyland ?

    In two minds as to whether this belongs in WW2 forum or here. There is a project to restore Hitler's 'Wolfs Lair' in Poland to its former inglory and there are fears that this may create a sort of Nazi themed Disneyland. It seems that Poland has had some what sound like somewhat tasteless re-enactments in the recent past and the fear is that this will encourage more. The BBC has a rather long item on this. It's worth reading all of it.

    Whilst we should endeavour not to obliterate the past, preservation should be done in a manner that warns rather than entertains.

    Well, the Poles have some experience in the matter.

    They have the camps and none of them have been turned into theme parks.

    Then again I remember a minor political upheaval here when they objected to them being called "Polish death camps".

    Will this be Hitler's Polish wolfs lair then ? Or not ?



    Edit, Berchtesgaden national park would be the obvious comparison, beautiful place with a sad history.

      The BBC has become such a joke, and as always... full of hyperbole.

      Now what in the world is a "National Socialist Theme Park"?

      Will they be selling souvenirs and ice cream and such.

            The OP wasn't serous and thus warrant no serious response.

            ...It's the BBC after all, and BBC have a habit of turning things into sensationalism.


            I wonder if they will serve National Socialist food and water in this National Socialist Theme Park that the Poles are fixing to create.

              One wonders how the Reich will be viewed in the future generations. We still have folks alive today that survived the crimes of the Reich. But once all those survivors pass and perhaps in 50, 100, 200 years world leaders or even more common people then do now will challenge these views that the Reich was the bad guy.

                When you are desperate fr hard currency, you work with what you have. Wolfschanze is still fairly intact.
