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.
