A couple of weeks ago Dogger taped a new decoration to his bedroom door. Craig and I were a little curious about the design, so we asked him where he came up with the shape. He told us he had seen it in a movie.
"Which movie?" I asked, interested to learn where my 6 year old had been introduced to a swastika.
"On all those submarines. In that movie, you know, The Great Mr. Limpit. And, in The Sound of Music. It's on the new Austrian flag, the black spider."
Turns out I introduced my kids to a symbol, that today, is most often used to represent Nazism, Fascism and White Supremacy. Huh.
