Doesn`t anyone remember that the swastika was originally a Buddhist symbol of good luck? That`s why the Nazis stole it, to try and bring luck to themselves.
And everyone else here pretty much hit the nail on the head, it`s just the most efficient way to make seating while using the least amount of space/material

I have family who were killed in the holocaust (I have no extended family because of the thorough job they did) and I can say that I like this configuration. functional. I dont care about the shape (ill be honest, the swastika is a pretty good symbol - its a pity Hitler got there first. Same with the roman salute).

Um.... they could each be facing in just like the ones in the background.

I agree with Jake. Although it caught this photographer`s eye, this isn`t an unusual configuration for study carrels. It`s the only way to arrange four of them together compactly without having people sitting side-by-side.

Having just spent a minute Googling the topic, librarians usually refer to this as a "Pinwheel" configuration (as opposed to a "Studenten fur den Fuhrer" configuration). Manufacturers even sell units of four carrels joined in this configuration--although I notice they generally have the swastika arms extending counterclockwise instead of clockwise, a la the Nazis, as they are in this photo.

"Compare the background organization. Probably back to the same two minutes later."

I don`t know about that. While it wouldn`t make sense to use that configuration by windows, it fills the space well in the middle of the room.

I wonder what we would be tip toeing around if They had chosen to use a circle as the symbol of the Nazi party?

What happens if one disturbs the "Quiet Area"?

The worst thing besides the obvious worst things about the whole Nazi Party is that they co-opted the swastika.

Aside from the obvious Swastika, it`s actually a very good design

As long as there are no Busby Berkeley overhead shots, no one will probably notice.
