French tourist shocked by Nazi gear for sale at Thai beach resort
French tourist was surprised to see the Nazi flag and other souvenirs with the image of Adolf Hitler openly on sale to visitors to this Thai resort city.
Alexandre Jandaeng, 34, took the pictures of the items with his mobile phone and asked a tourist police officer on duty on Saturday about their legality, as all Nazi symbols are banned in his country.
The policeman explained to him that Thai laws did not ban the swastika and other Nazi paraphernalia. But any counterfeit item was subject to legal action, he added.
Some European countries, including France and Germany ban any display of the swastika. The symbol was used by Hitler when he led Germany to ignite World War II and kill millions in concentration camps during the Holocaust.
