    I openly display my Nsdap in my war room along with banners , pennants and armbands. However, they are displayed alongside my Japanese flag, American flag and russian flag. My friends, family and wife all know it's all strictly for historical purposes only and not as a shrine. My Aunt who visits me gets a little creeped out in the war room because says she feels negative energy from the SS items. She is also a convert to Judaism, so I'm sure that plays a part. But, she does understand the reason I collect the items so the memory stays alive.....as the Jews say," never forget" .So, out of sight , out of mind.

    as a backdrop to a militaria collection does not stir up any problems in my opinion.

    Most sheeple in Western Europe look askance at TR items (and especially SS items, but as I dont collect those, that is no concern of mine. I have more of a historical interest than a collecting interest anyways) and any overt display would be commented on and would put the historically interested person in a bad light - at least in many of the circles in which I travel (guess, it says a lot about their 'liberal'* mindset *SIGH*).

    Collections can be made more 'acceptable' to sheeple, if one mimicks the way 'Dean' displays his fine Collection: Allied items in the same room as TR regalia. Had I a big Collection (and the room for it), I believe, I would go along the same route.

    Of course if one had a 'Wall of Helmets,' that might not be practical! :-)

    (lastly - and this needs not be commented on, as I agree with Larry's post - I find it ironic, that what HaroldCane experienced smacks more of a heavy handed TR approach than a collector interested in preserving history does. Larry can delete this comment or Ill do it, if out of order).

    *I consider myself a liberal in the true/old sense of the Word; people are responsible for themselves. The Nanny state need not apply. To put a point on it, people can drink a gallon of moonshine and play roulette with their own life, if they dont endanger the lives of others. Sadly they often do.
    The word 'liberal' has become skewed and today means something else entirely.

    No Need to delete as I will move this to the discussion forum as long as it doesnt go over board into political and religious agenda...then I shut it down after that if it does.
    Your right Scout as there are several meanings to the word,,,which the meaning I dislike the most is the socialistic approach or controlling ones thoughts into thinking what is best for them. None of those should be held hostage to this warped following. In collecting TR militaria as I don want to go off trail .......none should feel that what they collect is wrong by the majority thinkers. These same thinkers are responsible for erasing History out of the mainstream society. Only study about certain ethnic groups,, and apologetics. Sickening IMO,, as what once was is no more. Schools dont teach the same subjects,, which are crucial for growth and understanding not just in ones own country but world wide.
    Eventually books will be lost to time and out of print. There is nothing wrong with studying any history,,,nor wanting to learn about our past.
    History must be taught and collecting any history is a teaching in progress.
    THE THIRD REICH PERIOD IMO....has shaped the direction of our world and focus. There is much to learn from this time period not just the nice looking uniforms and accoutrements as the Germans IMO were the best at looking sharp...but there is more to the TR priod than just that...The cultural change the separated neighbors and children from each other,, from a Majoritive thought of a few degenerated intellectuals. I am hopeful that History itself is not led astray by the same thoughts of separating for us collectors of what is good or bad in collecting,, as seen in the separation of a people because of One stupid thought.

    I wouldn't want to use a black light on that ! LOL

    It is a difficult subject collecting " nazi stuff " for lack of a worse word . People today don't want to remember history , or even think about it for that matter . I find the rise of the nazi party an amazing time in history . Also a great cautionary title of what can happen to a country . It seems people try to blame Germans for what humans can do , like Germans are extra evil or something ! We are all the same and all capable of the same evil deeds , and maybe that what scares people about collecting TR . And in this political correct world in which we live , people don't what to think about the darker side of humanity . Come to think of it , they don't want to think at all !
    Cheers Chris

    Seeing how the flagpole out front of my house was inappropriate I display my large SS flag found in Amsterdam and brought home by Major Feather VIII Recce behind my DeTolf cases, it makes for a subtle but classy look not dominating the room. I will post a couple of pics up to show what I mean. My other national flags are folded up displayed with various other militaria. They serve to tone the room down and not present it as a "Nazi Shrine".
