New Zealand bar’s Anzac Day Hitler piñata offends German Embassy


The German Embassy has complained about  the use of a Hitler  piñata at an event in a bar to mark Anzac Day.

The Bahama Hut bar in Tauranga, in New Zealand, advertised the event with a photo of the Hitler piñata with Swasticas and the words: “Make sure you’re here around midnight to smash this guy up!! He’s filled with lollies and drink vouchers!! Happy Anzac Day!!”

A German Embassy spokesman said: “Anzac Day is about thinking of those deceased and hurt in all wars. Is that the right way of acknowledging that?”
