Cultural References

I’ve been watching — on youtube — a TV show made in the 1970s generally referred to as ‘Kolchak’. I noticed the surprising frequency with which references were made to ‘Nazis’ (as mean, aggressive, killers0 and realized the war against, in part, the Nazis had only ended 30 years or so prior. Last night when watching Dr. Strangelove there were, again, references to the Nazis. I don’t know that current media/entertainment references the Nazis very much. I suppose that in time the ‘Commies’ will also fade from socially shared memories and as socially shared references. — Louis Sheehan
