German company apologises for producing anti-immigrant condoms
BERLIN (Reuters) - A German company has apologised for producing condoms marked with an offensive message that were used in a far-right party's campaign against immigrant births.
The contraceptives, ordered by the youth wing of the National Democratic Party (NPD), came in black boxes bearing the slogan "For foreigners and certain Germans".
The activists sent them to lawmakers as a protest against "unchecked immigration".
The message had a particular resonance in the country where the Nazi party also tried to control childbirth, encouraging people considered pure-blood Germans to breed, while going as far as sterilising people from other groups.
