  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

Selling a dark past.

    I collect German Daggers of the Third Reich, because they are beautiful examples of the swordmakers art. We must remember the past if we are not to repeat it.....

    There isn't, historical things sell...Third Reich items are popular because its well made, beautiful items. Soviet items from that era are also very interesting.

    Trying to forget the past is just a window to allow something as horrific as what Hitler did and stood for to happen again.

    As we have already seen in Cambodia, the former Yugoslavia (Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo), Rwanda -- and now Somalia.

    Frankly, I'd rather see these items donated to museums, particularly museums which deal with World War II and Halocaust museums, so people can see the catastrophes blind allegiance to charismatic leaders, combined with xenophobia can lead to.

    I think it would be very interesting to read Hitler's notes to a speech. By no means does being interested and intrigued in Nazi Germany mean that you sympathize with Hitler's so-called cause.

    I'd rather see these items be placed into a museum too, but there's no reason why a person cannot buy them if they are for sale. It's just like a famous work of art; it SHOULD be in a museum but we all know that it doesn't always end up that way.

    Think again Robert! If you do not know the value of historical preservation, then I am just beating a dead horse.
