Amazon thinks I'm a Nazi sympathizer

Just got one of those "People who like X like Y..." emails from Amazon. It's kind of funny because what it's recommending to me is a new 2-disc special edition of Leni Riefenstahl's Olympia. It's a documentary of the 1936 Berlin Olympics. I already saw her other big Nazi documentary, Triumph of the Will, and must give credit for masterful film production. Anyway, considering what I've been watching lately (Downfall, Architecture of Doom and now Murderers Are Among Us) and how I visited the Munich Nazi Museum, it's a pretty good recommendation on Amazon's part. I think I have Olympia in my Netflix queue. Oddly, Amazon based the rec on my liking Diary of a Lost Girl, which isn't Nazi-related, just German from the 20s.
