I heard this on the radio, but wanted to see for myself.
In Bombay, most people have no problem eating at a restaurant called, “Hitler’s Cross,” which has swastikas and pics of the Führer himself. Apparently, he’s just another historical figure to them.
One customer said:
“Tomorrow if someone keeps a name like Saddam Mutton Shop or George Bush Footwear, there’s nothing wrong with that, is there?” (Link)
HA HA HA! Bush and Saddam and Hitler all at the mall together.
But the owner did eventually agree to change the name after meeting with a few of those who were upset. (Link)
One thing he said on the radio was that he didn’t use the first name, so what’s the problem? Hitler is just a surname.
I’ve often wondered what all the people with the last name of Hitler or Stalin did when it all went bad for those names. How long before you change a last name like that?
