    Are we supposed to believe that a buyer for the store purchased the mugs without noticing Hitler’s picture. And than the store sold almost 200 mugs before someone realized that they had Hitler’s picture on them. Hard to believe. What is also interesting is that the Chinese would create such a sentimental depiction of Hitler. Either they have no knowledge of the 20th Century dictator/mass murderer or they believe that modern German’s still venerate him. Maybe they are correct, after all, customers were purchasing them without any complaints.
