Thailand Hotel Decorates Room With Hitler 

This is the “Communist” room at the Love Villa Hotel in Nonthaburi, Thailand, which is an hour or so away from Bangkok. The room was decorated with Hitler and Nazi imagery.

Never mind that the Russians fought against the Nazis—or, more importantly, decorating your hotel in Hitler is in poor taste.

According to Coconuts, the 40-room love hotel opened around two years ago.

When asked about the room’s theme and design, the receptionist told Coconuts, “It’s just a theme room, it had no inspiration. The designer just keeps changing the rooms to keep it fresh.”

“This is truly awful,” Efraim Zuroff, head of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, was quoted as saying by JTA (via The Times of Israel). “It’s horrendous, absolutely disgusting. It shows a complete lack of knowledge and education about Hitler, the harm he caused and the horrifying crimes that he committed in World War II.”

The hotel has since apparently removed the Hitler imagery.

This isn’t the first time Nazi images have caused controversy in Thailand.

Back in 2011, for example, parents and students at a school Chiang Mai, Thailand held a Nazi parade.

Two years later, a man was baffled after his Nazi-themed cafe pissed people off.

    I wouldn't say Thailand "loves" Hitler, they probably think he and Nazi iconography looks "cool".

    It most likely is an education issue. Similar to how Japan has comics with Hitler in it.

      Good point. It's almost as if the original comment wasn't interested in the facts, but was using hyperbole for comedic effect. But... no... no, that can't be...

    I know my wife who was raised in a Buddhist house finds our distaste for the swastika a bit baffling because it's a Buddhist icon backwards.

    Maybe everything about hitler is a lie

    (a) old news;
    (b) nothing to do with video games or even nerd culture;

      Normally, I'm quick to defend rando articles as being nerd-adjacent, but yeah, you might be right on this one.

    Perfect for the lovebirds whose love for each other matches only their love for Wolfenstein 3D

    Atleast it isn't black face, there's no excuse for not knowing that. It's easy to forget the single largest conflict in history though.

    That doesn't even make sense, the Nazi's were anti-communism?!?

    Last Week Tonight did a story on this.
