Minnesota Nazi-Themed Party Provokes Outrage Among Local Jews

The organizer of a World War II-themed party that included Nazi flags and men in SS uniforms apologized on Wednesday after a photo of the event in Minneapolis provoked outrage on the Internet, reports The Associated Press (AP).

The Nazi-themed party, which was held at Gasthof zur Gemutlichkeit, a popular German restaurant and bar in northeast Minneapolis, was condemned by the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas (JCRC).
