I'll start off with a few pictures, Cryptomundo » More On So-Called “Nazi Bears” Cryptomundo » Mystery Photo: Nazis & Yeti or Bizarre Bear? puparo: Ð’ÐµÐ´Ð¼ÐµÐ¶ÑŒÑ Ñ‚ÐµÐ¼Ð° (Excuse the smile, the formatings fault) What significance did the bear hold during the war for the Germans? It must have held something to be showcased in German war photography to this extent. In the comments from the first site people (After looking past all the "their not allowed to have a sense of humor because their Nazi" comments) a few people talk about everything from the bear being the logo of the unit to it holding significance in German mythology (Something about "Santa Claus"), I even read one guy say it was for a promotion done by "Fanta" during the war in Germany. Anyone else have a theory?
