Display of Nazi-era Germany shirt with Fascist symbols in World Cup

World Cup shirt exhibition gets attention 


A display of old World Cup shirts at a shopping mall in Brazil might seem innocuous enough, but one item in particular has turned it into a controversial exhibition that has been upsetting to some visitors.

A replica of the white and black shirt, featuring a Nazi-era swastika and eagle in its crest, worn by Germany at the 1934 World Cup is in a display case in the host city of Salvador, where Germany played their first match of the 2014 World Cup. 

The collection also includes a black shirt with Fascist symbols worn by Mussolini's Italy at the 1938 World Cup and Israel's 1970 shirt, which Sampao claims is evidence of there being "no political involvement" with the exhibition.
