I have an armband my great-uncle brought back as war spoils and have NO idea what to do with it. If I hide it, it may look like I'm a closet Nazi. If I display it, it definitely looks like I'm a closet Nazi. So it sits in the box of family history documents until I figure it out.

If he wanted he could reach out to a veterans group associated with their unit. I used to talk with a ball turret gunner at the airport pretty much everyday (he had awesome stories, shot down twice in Yugoslavia etc etc). Someone in his wing was unable to find a photo of the nose art on his b17. I eventually found an image after much research and sent it to an organization associated with his crew. The surviving members and their families were ecstatic.

GhostOfCadia

That is bad ass. That is the only piece of Nazi iconography I would keep.

I remember as a kid, my dad (history professor) had lots of authentic memorabilia of many kinds from many different periods. But he also had a couple authentic Nazi arm bands from 1940. He used his memorabilia in his classes, but he never used the arm bands for anything. They just sat in his closet, until one day we took them into the backyard and burned them. He said “I got them so long ago, but the longer I had them the more I couldn’t stand having them in my house.” He knew that what he had wasn’t “living history”, it didn’t give useful context or understanding. It was just a piece of Nazi nostalgia, and it needed to be destroyed.

This flag on the other hand, is RICH with context and information. Seriously super cool.

ommanipadmehome

Donating to a historical organization would be a good way to ensure it stays in proper context.

GhostOfCadia

3 points

12 days ago

Lots of historical organizations have no use for or interest in Nazi iconography. Because again, unless it’s adding context, it isn’t history. It’s Nazi nostalgia.

It’s not like people don’t know what the arm band looks like, and seeing one in person doesn’t add anything to your understanding or knowledge.

it isn’t history. It’s Nazi nostalgia.

"History" is an umbrella term comprising past events as well as the memory, discovery, collection, organization, presentation, and interpretation of these events. Historians seek knowledge of the past using historical sources such as written documents, oral accounts, art and material artifacts, and ecological markers.[5]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History

hasnt even been a century and nazi deniers and neo nazis are a thing. history is not just the things we want to be remembered for but humanity's sins and failures. you can not learn from the history that is destroyed and forgotten. history of evil is still history and should be preserved so in a thousand generations we will still remember and say "never again".

Absolute nonsense. If you think people won’t remember World War 2 or the Crimes of the Nazis unless they can see an authentic Nazi armband, then I don’t think you understand history at all.

There is plenty of Nazi related items and documents that add context and information, and should be and are preserved.

An arm band doesn’t do that

When we inherited my wife’s grandmother’s house we had to clean it out. Her cousin’s were in town who never would come to town and they wanted to help for the day. Amongst all of the old boxes and love letters from WW2, we found a nazi flag one of her soldiers sent (US soldier to be clear). Sure enough the shit head cousins wanted it and I couldn’t really argue it because we got a house. It was the one time seeing a nazi flag was awesome. I would’ve really liked to have that piece of history, no matter how dark it was.

Thats a really good find . I don’t understand why people don’t like this type of thing . Its history . Why can we not accept it for its intrinsic interest and not what it stands for . There is a healthy market in this type of stuff , but for its historical value and interest . Doesn’t make you a Nazi if you own history . Many things from the past are in museums and collections just as bad as the makers of this flag but are accepted as they are not recent .

Now I'm even more curious about the story of this flag. No mention in his obituary about having served overseas. Was it a flag one of his mates brought back? Was it one he and other state-siders acquired to commemorate their contribution to the war effort? Something else?

All the ejaculatory jokes aside, that is a brilliant find. A real treasure, probably really valuable.

Probably the only nazi flag that's appropriate to hang up somewhere in your house

There's an exception to every rule. This is a Swastika flag that can and should be displayed, as long as appropriate context is given(as you did here).

I know a man who has the flag that flew outside the gates of Buchenwald. Just being in the presence of these things sends a weird mix of fear and sadness. Weird fact the man who lowered the flag and kept it had the first name of Adolf.

The best kind of Nazi Flag. One taken in combat by the victorious forces.

Such a conflicting piece of history, on one side it's a nazi flag and stands for so much hate while also commentates the heroics of a lot of men who faced a lot of horrible crap to capture it. I think if it were me I'd be on the side of trying to track down if any of the companies or battalions have museums that are interested in it.
