Wacky Wednesday

My grandmother recently was placed in a nursing care facility due to her failing health. My sister and brother went to Allentown to help clean out her condo and get it ready to sell. While going through papers, my sister found this post card among my grandmother's things.

*shock* Yeah I thought the same thing. Except the date on the postcard is 1901, which is before Hitler's regime took over Germany. And a little search on google educated me to the fact that the swastika has been around for 3000 years. Apparently it was a very positive symbol until Hitler used it and changed its meaning.


Still... kinda creepy. And definitely wacky.
