During Hitler's regime, he took the Aryan culture, which was clearly an Indo-European, dark skinned culture, and assured German citizens that they were blonde hair blue eyed beings. He also took the swastika symbol, which was originally a symbol of peace, and changed its meaning forever.

    Sam F - Reterritorialization is when a culture takes something from a different culture, alters it slightly, & makes it their own. Pictured above is a great example of reterritorialization: chocolate. To further explain, chocolate was solely found in Mesoamerica until about the 16th century when the Spanish discovered it and took it back to their homeland. Instead of just drinking the bitter chocolate as the Mesoamericans did, the Spanish modified it by adding other ingredients such as sugar.
