German National Team Blasted over Auschwitz Visit, Der Spiegel reports:
Germany’s Jewish community has criticized the country’s national football team for sending a small delegation to Auschwitz last week instead of visiting the site as a group. It also accused team manager Oliver Bierhoff of ‘colossal insensitivity’ in his choice of words ahead of the visit.
It is an incredible sensitive issue and I am very glad to see the German National Team stopping in Ausschwitz to make statement and remember to never forget. But some people you can never please, I suppose.
