German Communist Leader Inspires Contempt, Shower Gel

Brian

For as low as €2.49, you could have skin as fresh and clean as this guy, former East German communist leader Erich Honecker:
Called "East German Erich's shower gel", the product bears the communist hammer and sickle insignia . . . .

"These items are simply tasteless. They offend the victims of the SED," [Stasi Memorial director Hubertus] Knabe said, referring to the former East German communist party.

. . . .

"It is unbearable to see how such 'ostalgie' [nostalgia] glorifies a criminal regime," [Wolfgang Kockrow, who was arrested for spying by the East German regime,] said.
Link. How soon we forget the Dr. Bronner's crimes.
