Is there context as to why they chose Nazi's?

From what I hear the theme of the event was historical figures. The class was picked to do Germany. 



taiwan was part of the japanese empire, allied with nazi germany.

We should never forget and should remain as objective as possible when looking at the history, but people that proudly wear these symbols while parading on the streets don't have the first clue what they actually stand for.

Wouldn`t that actually paint the nazis in a better light? I mean looking at it objectively... they killed some people, well... what country hasn`t?

It`s only when looking subjectively at the reasons why they did what they did that you can think `wow, what a bunch of dicks`.

Well... yeah... but, you know what I meant.

Why would it be cool? its a disgrace to the millions of people killed.

You don`t think it would have been pretty awe inspiring to see something like that?

Perhaps you might prefer to watch the V day parade? 



It was Britain, it is America, tomorrow France and next year, the world...

    I've seen people cosplaying as ISIS, just to mock them. None has a problem with that.



    Honestly almost nothing from the 20th century beats national-socialist imagery.

    It's still taboo only because of the horrendous Holocaust atrocities against the Jews are still somewhat fresh in some people's memory, but give it another 50 years and Hitler and the nazis will be just as cool as people's fascination for Hannibal, the Roman emperors, Alexander the Great, Richard Lionheart, Henry VIII of England, tsar Peter the Great and Napoleon (except in Germany where it could take a few decades longer).

    Books will be written, and movies and TV-series will be made where even his romantic escapades will be glorified and this mysterious, enigmatic and fascinating leader, Adolf Hitler, truly the most inspiring, epic and powerful leader of Germanic history, will be portrayed in a totally different light than today.

    Heil, mein Führer!
