"Extremely Inappropriate"?

That's putting it mildly!  "Berlin — A German hotel apologized for running an ad for a 'long, romantic Kristallnacht' to be held on the 75th anniversary of the Nazi pogrom against Jews and their institutions. The Kristall Sauna Wellnesspark in Bad Klosterlausnitz, in the former eastern German state of Thuringen, pulled the ad for the November 9 event and issued an apology via Facebook, according to the Cologne-based online newspaper Express.de.  In a statement issued Monday, the hotel owners apologized for their 'insensitive naming of this event,' which was 'extremely inappropriate.' They explained that they frequently tag part of their name, 'Kristall,' onto their events."  It's hard to believe they would be so ignorant as to use that word on that very day.
