There are several historic periods that changed the course of the world - the Holocaust being one. During that time, six million Jews were murdered by Nazi Germany under Adolf Hitler's reign.

So, understandably the swastika - the symbol that was embedded on Nazi soldiers' uniforms - is still frowned upon worldwide.

However, one local man decided not only to wear the Nazi symbol but to do so in public while eating at a Wimpy in Bloemfontein.

On Sunday, social media user @kanyamofokeng posted two videos on Twitter which showed an older man enjoying his lunch at Wimpy in Bloemfontein's Fleurdal Mall while wearing a swastika armband.

"This was today at @wimpy_sa Fleurdal Mall in Bloemfontein. #Nazi #SwartzSticker," she captioned the video.

Explaining why the man's actions was unacceptabled, @kanyamofokeng commented: "We are concerned because if the old South African flag was flown proudly in Germany, we would expect that there be some form of backlash. We are cognisant of our own tragedies, but it doesn't make us ignorant to other's painful past."

Briefly.co.za gathered the second video showed Nazi flags waving in the wind in front of a building on the outskirts of the Free State city.

South Africans were baffled over the man's confidence to wear such a frowned-upon symbol in public.
