What if it was all nifty and plaid?
To be fair, this parka is probably inspired more by the Sex Pistols song of the same name than Belsen, but that song was… intended to be disturbing, right? The opening lines run:
- Belsen was a gas, I heard the other day
- In the open graves where the Jews all lay
- “Life is fun and I wish you were here”
- They wrote on postcards to those held dear
So that’s… really disturbing. Especially given that Belsen was shown in propoganda films for the foreign press as an example of a well run, benign camp. So, yes, there are a lot disturbing elements to that song, absolutely none of which are clearly conveyed by this military jacket.
And frankly, selling anything “grungy” for $125 just seems like it’s missing the point.
