(Is It Really Evil?)
This page in other languages:
The Swastika is the most ancient symbol in human history. It used to mean good
luck as a positive sign. Indeed the very plus sign (+), as well as the
Cross used in Christianity, are derived from
Swastika. It was only after WWII that it was considered to be an evil

Note: Although the pages of the book
are digitized at 300+ dpi, and all efforts were made to make the digitized text
legible, still because of the age of the book (around 100+ years) some words
might be hard to read. Furthermore, since the book is a part of a larger
report, it starts at page 763.
