(the Fifth) who were responsible for the rounding up of the Jews in Hungary. I find it odd that no one here has even acknowledged this peculiar situation.
There's nothing wrong with re-enacting. There's nothing wrong even with dressing up as one of the Wehrmacht. But the SS? Yhe Waffen SS who were the source of atrocities in Poland, Russia, Normandy (Canadians), the Battle of the Bulge (American) and of course a lot of Jews in the Baltic states and Russia while invading and Hungary and Czechoslovakia as they retreated. Now the Waffen SS weren't the ones primarily involved in the "Final Solution", but they weren't innocent either.
And I have 2 friends whose fathers were Waffen SS. Both are women, and one of them has a best friend who is a Jew.
