Some Dutch company is selling plastic helmets, especially produced for the soccer world cup (2006, Germany). The shape of the helmet is identical to the helmet the German soldiers carried during WWII. The color is orange (national color of the Dutch) and there are two versions. One of them has a German text, saying something like “Get ready to rumble”. The other version says in quasi-Dutch “ATTACK!!”.
Many people (Dutch and German) feel offended by this helmet, as this strongly reminds them of WWII and its horrors. Also, the German text on the helmet seems to be disliked by many (for obvious reasons).
So… what about this helmet? Do you feel this to be acceptable, as it’s been over 60 years since WWII came to an end and Germany is a respected country again?
