    It's not really Nazi Coke. This item was made before the Nazi party existed, when the Swastika used to be a symbol of good luck.

        The coke Nazi connection is well known. As most of the folks here know Fanta was invented by a Nazi.

        The picture of the coke swastika was just interesting so I posted it.

                Whatever, Coke is an evil corporation! Nazi ties, killing workers in India (or wherever that was)...where does it stop?!?

                  This is certainly the cola wars brought the extreme: accusations of Naziism.

                  How do the Coke fans fire back? That Pepsi started the KKK?

                        Yeah, I remember there was a big uproar when there was a swastika on a pokemon card...though the Japanese have used it for centuries as a good luck charm

                          Well, for arguments sake, one could reference the activist/student uproar that accompanied Pepsi's business dealings in Burma in the mid '90s, forcing it to ratchet down it's business dealings with East Timor. In fact I'm pretty sure Pepsi lost it's contract at Harvard to Coke after students protested.

                            I don???????„?t think coca cola killed people in India but they did cause problems.
                            Coke built a bottling plant in a drought area and sunk deep wells lowering the water table and exacerbating the drought conditions for the local people. Causing major problems with regard to crops and employment related to farming. Many of the shallow wells that used to supply a village are now dry or tainted.

                            Why Coke chose to build a plant in a drought zone only G-D knows.

                            I don???????„?t know about Coke getting involved in Myanmar (Burma). I can???????„?t imagine that there is much money there.

                            Fanta was invented by the Nazis after they could no longer get Coca cola syrup in 1941.
                            Bottling plants were built by Coca Cola GmbH in all the occupied areas of Europe. Coca Coke Gmbh used slave labor at some of its facilities. My understanding is that Coke in Atlanta had to pay reparations to forced laborers after the war.

                            When the war ended the bottling plants were already set up and ready to produce coca cola.
