German spa apology for 'romantic Kristall Nacht'

A health spa in Germany has apologised for promoting a "romantic Kristall Nacht evening" on the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht, 'the night of broken glass' when coordinated gangs of Nazis attacked Jewish homes, synagogues and businesses, killing at 91 people.

The Kristall Sauna-Wellnesspark in central Germany, had invited visitors to: “Enjoy the evening in romantic candlelight”, adding that the “magical atmosphere” would continue to midnight, The Times of Israel said.

The spa has changed the name to 'the long romantic night' and issued an apology online:

We are extraordinarily regretful and of course this was unintentional - believe us, we are quite ashamed about our mistake.

Remembrance events on November 9 will mark the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht, named because of all the broken windows of synagogues and Jewish owned buildings.
