Why do people get offended by the Swastika?

The swastika was the sign or symbol used by the Nazis when they tried to take over all of Europe. To the Nazis this symbol represented their ideology which they wanted to impose on all of Europe, or all the lands they conquered. As the Nazis lost the WWII this sign became a hateful sign, and represented the evil that the Nazis wanted to impose over the world. The actions of the Nazis, the mass genocides and the holocaust are associated with this symbol. This symbol also has a psychological affect to all the survivors. The differentiation between Allied army and the Nazis was this symbol and this came to represent evil. Also imagine yourself trying to squint at the tail or belly of a bomber plane or a tank or ships to find this symbol. And if you were in its line of fire, it would be pretty darn bad. So over the course of the war, this symbol imprinted death and that's why today in the civilized world people are offended by it.
