Bundeswehr apologizes to posting Nazi-era Wehrmacht uniform at Instagram

Germany’s military apologized on Wednesday for post an image of a Nazi-era Wehrmacht uniform on Instagram accompanied by the hashtags” style” and”retro”.

The photograph shot at the Museum of Military History at Dresden and accompanied by a comment –“now, elements of army design still belong into haute couture” — has been seen by daily newspaper Bild before being deleted.

The military and the defense ministry apologized on Wednesday for its”unacceptable mistake”. The photograph was printed as a member of a photographic report on”the army influence on-trend,” they stated. “Extremism in most of its forms is completely banned from the Bundeswehr.”

The Bundeswehr was made in 1955, breaking with the Wehrmacht, the Nazi military whose function at the persecutions of the Third Reich has been known.
