Nazi photo blunder 19, November 2010

Update: This was not the actual photo used in the Airdrie article. This photo is seemingly just taken from stock. Its juxtaposition in the article is either a simple editorial oversight or a disgraceful piece of journalism by the J Post.

Airdrie United, a lower-tier Scottish football club, had the above photo on the front of their match-day programme to commemorate Remembrance Day. Underneath the photo was the strap line

Supporting Out Heroes

The problem is that this is actually (rather obviously) a photo of a group of Nazis. So near and yet really so, so far.

Out heroes? Springtime for Hitler

in fairness to Airdrie, the jerusalem post is being a bit disgenuous using that photo of a group of Wehrmacht staff officers to illustrate the story. The actual image Airdrie used was of other rans leaning out of a train window which is a lot more obscure http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2010/11/15/article-1329830-0C146F25000005DC-10_468x626.jpg

You’d have to have watch a lot of Allo Allo to pick up the German uniforms there.

Thanks very much for pointing that out. I’ve included an update at the beginning of my article text.
