Oops: KFC Germany Ripped For Tying Sales Promotion To Kristallnacht

  • Fast-food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) has issued an apology for an accidental alert message that went out to consumers on its app, appearing to treat Germany’s Kristallnacht as a typical holiday.
  • Lots of synagogues burned during the night as local firefighters watched instead of putting them out because they had been told to only get involved to stop the fire from spreading to other structures. Jewish cemeteries were also desecrated in many areas.
  • In Germany, the anniversary of the night is treated as a memorial and this year marks the 84th anniversary of the tragic events.
