Interesting..

FRANCE 24 (Observers)
Quote:
First there was the reopening, with big fanfare, of the “Soldiers’ café”, a gloomy place in the city of Bandung where you can drink coffee dressed in an SS uniform. Now there is an election video in which an Indonesian singer rocks out wearing Heinrich Himmler’s uniform. Why are these Nazi-era references suddenly popping up in Indonesia? We asked our Observers in Jakarta…

Ahh and quiet recently one of the singer Ahmad Dani was banned from youtube from using Nazi uniform to promote the president candidate, but he's known to be expressive person even if paid, and the candidate happens to be that "notorious" military person. The thing with the cafe is that unlike most of the western world we have 0 hatred towards the Nazi, we didnt really care about them that much, its nothing personal really.

It is unfortunate, but it is what it is - the Holocaust doesn't have the same emotional resonance in non-Western countries that it does in the West....

Unfortunately that's how it goes :/ i still remember my highschool mate posing Hitler Nasi style, and everyone merely look at it as joke. I think it applies to most Asian countries as well since we just simply don't see the way that Westerner view things...

But that's not it the Japs who have done so many cruel things seems to already been forgotten... only the Chinese in China holds much hatred towards their past crime, but the world today? i don't think so.

I can relate to that... When I was in Middle School (I was about 12 years old that time), I had classmates who casually drew the Nazi Swastika and the Soviet Hammer and Sickle on school blackboards and thought absolutely nothing of it...

Recommendation: a history lesson about WWII. There are people still alive who remember the Holocaust as well as the
atrocities that the Japanese committed on the Chinese.

I've seen some people in Jakarta wearing clothes with emblem like this " Nazi syimbol " whether they are Muslim , Christian or Buddhist, we never care because we assume it is an art, perhaps we do not understand about this all .. what the meaning of these symbols.
