In my office, I have various plaques and regimental colors commemorating my time in the US Army. I also have many books, as well as several models I have built on display. Of course, I've removed all books from my shelves that say "Adolf Hitler", etc, as well as most models. I left one 1/6 scale 251 Hanomag halftrack that has a Balkankreuz. No Swastika in sight. This is the feedvback my realtor got from another:
This is a beautiful home, but I was puzzled by the war memorabilia in the upstairs room, and as I am currently working with a Jewish family, I have become quite sensitive to their concerns- I would probably not show a home to them where there was German military insignia. Fortunately I was previewing this home on my own, and my clients were not with me.
I mean really! Are people that sensitive? I saw many houses in my new location that were decorated quite gay and/or left wing. Can one imagine the response I would receive if I complained? Shows who the tolerant ones really are.
A book on Nazi Germany makes me as Nazi as a book on gardening makes me a gardener, cooking a chef, etc etc. F^&&ing idiots....
