Should We Still Fear the Swastika?Streaming Video - 2011
Appropriated by the Nazis as a symbol of fascist power, the swastika, or hooked cross, has been revered by various cultures and nations since pre-Christian times. In 2006, a Catholic church in St. Cloud, Minnesota, opted to remove five swastikas that had been part of its roof-line facade since 1930. This program considers the factors that led to the decision, chronicles the removal itself, and examines the wide range of opinions it aroused in the surrounding community. Produced with support from St. Cloud State University's Jewish Studies program and its Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education, this is an excellent launch point for discussing intersections between architecture, history, religion, free expression, and other areas.
