Based on Philip K. Dick’s alternate history novel of the same name, Amazon’s The Man in High Castle was well received when it first aired in 2015, and its final series concluded last week. The story is set in a world where the Nazis and Japan won the Second World War and now control the United States. As you can imagine, a show which speculates on a world where Nazis rule includes a large number of swastikas but, following the conclusion of the show, every swastika created was destroyed.
As good.is reports, Chelah Horsdal, who played Helen Smith in the show, took to Twitter to show how the series’ producers made sure every swastika used on the show was “proudly destroyed” after the final episode was finished. She posted a video showing a swastika patch being cut into pieces before joining a large number of other destroyed swatikas that were gathered in a bin labeled ‘burn pile’.
The Man in High Castle received a consistently strong response from critics as each season aired, and currently stands at 56% on Rot ton Tomatoes. Author Stephen King is certainly a fan, and recently published a Tweet saying: “The 4th season of THE MAN IN HIGH CASTLE is amazingly good. If you had told me 10 years ago that I could watch something as challenging and involving as this ON TELEVISION, I wouldn’t have believed you.”
