    Default German TV personality wears Iron Cros-shaped jewelry - much ado about nothing.

    For the German speaking forum members (condensed translation below):




    Birgit Schrowanges Halskette: Jetzt schaltet sich das Verteidigungs-Ministerium ein - Leute - Bild.de

    Birgit Schrowange, a well known German TV presenter on RTL, wore a necklace on TV.
    Amongst other items, a small Iron Cross pendant hangs on the necklace.
    This caused a ruckus amongst the PC brigade and some of the more gentle and sensitive souls - on for example FB amongst other places.

    The 'Bundeswehr' of course sprang into action and explained the symbol. The 'Bundeswehr' does not care much for the 'BILD' version of events, as "„Da das Eiserne Kreuz für die Bundeswehr als Hoheitsabzeichen eine herausgehobene Bedeutung hat, sehen wir die durch die BILD-Zeitung ausgeführte, einseitige Darstellung mit Bezug auf den Nationalsozialismus sehr wohl kritisch.“
    (As the Iron Cross has great meaning for the Bundeswehr as a symbol (Hoheitsabzeichen), we look at the slanted BILD-Zeitung story and the teneous link with National Socialism with critical eyes).

    Most here will know the EK background, so no reason to rehash that here.

    Goes without saying, that the cross pendant worn by Schrowange of course did not have any symbol in the middle of the cross, as that is forbidden in Germany.

    Schrowange herself doesnt understand the problem, as the Bundeswehr symbol in its current shape as 'Hoheitsabzeichen' is shown almost daily in German media reports on the Bundeswehr both in Germany and other countries abroad. Its seen on vehicles, planes etc.

    In any event, she claims, that she was handed the necklace by an assistant shortly before the doing her job on the TV program and, as she delicately puts it, 'there are more important things to ponder just before a live show.'

    From what I see, I think its a copy. Never seen a EKII construction like this before. Are there any numbers on the ring we know of?

    I dont think anybody here gives a 'carp'
    (hopefully) most here will shake their head at the sillyness, see it as the joke it is and be of the same opinion as you; Rome burning but people preoccupied with pettiness.

    I really do not see the big deal here.
    A iron cross is not a Swastika

    Exactly - hence the sillyness of it all.

    Obviously he or she who kicked off the 'scandal' is an ignoramus
