'Zyklon' ride offends Holocaust survivors

The Zyklon ride at the Broward County Fair in South Florida is offensive to some Holocaust survivors because of its reference to the Nazis' use of Zyklon gas in death camps.
The ride's owner, Frank Zaitshik of the Michigan-based Wade Shows, said Zyklon is German for cyclone and that the ride was named by its Italian manufacturer, which has since gone out of business.
Zaitshik told the Sun-Sentinel that he has heard the complaint before and now intends to change the ride's name.
