    Interesting photograph, I like it ALOT. Though many people believe Walt Disney to have been a nazi sympathizer, most evidence suggest the contrary. Disney was, however, constantly pandering to international audiences which is shown here by the marking of Disney toys in German (such as the Micky Mouse toy in the background) and the many pre 45' episodes which incorporate other countries symbols and ideology; this is actually one of the reasons many believe Disney to be a nazi sympathizer as he used swastika's in certain episodes of his cartoons prior to the war. I personally see it as simply Disney being a great businessman. It's also worthy of notation that Disney produced several anti-Nazi films during and after the war.
    Though the above isn't pertinent to the thread per se, I thought it should be shared as I'm sure someone would've eventually came along with inaccurate information and false accusations.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Mickey also found his way onto German fighter planes and even submarines:
