A basic rule marketing people can’t remember: Nazi = bad

Latest example: A wax museum opening next month in Thailand put up posters of mass murder Hitler with a slogan that said: "Hitler is not dead."

Museum director Somporn Naksuetrong said the billboard had been covered up after "a lot" of complaints poured in, including from the Israeli and German embassies. "We didn’t choose Hitler with the intention of praising him, but because he is well-known," Somporn said.
