I wouldn't put the blame on the people of these countries, or even those that are partrons of such establishments. They really are ignorant, some of the time. I knew a Japanese Foreign Exchange Student who had no idea about the attack on Pearl Harbor--he was simply never told about it. Knew all about the Atomic Bomb, however...
If the idea is to simply shock and be 'edgy', I really don't see a problem with it. In poor taste? Sure. But, that was a long time ago, and we can make novelty drinking establishments without fear of persecution, right?
To many people (i.e. the jewish community and others who were affected during nazi rule) this may seem absolutely horrible. What if some had made a 9/11 terrorist-themed bar?
