Really?
Are you saying that every use of any nazi symbol outside of history
education is prohibited in Germany?

This seems ridiculous!  :-(
How do you deal with movies such as _Raiders of the lost ark_ and
_Indiana Jones and the last crusade_ ?
They are quite full of swastikas and other nazi symbols and they cannot
be considered (AFAICT) "history education".
Nonetheless, it's hard to imagine a movie that's more anti-nazi than
those two...

IANAL, but I don't think we have such overreaching laws in Italy about
fascist symbols...
