Amazon pulls 'disturbing' Christmas ornaments bearing images of Auschwitz

AKIPRESS.COM - A Polish museum has criticised US e-commerce giant Amazon for selling Christmas ornaments decorated with images of the Nazi German death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, The Guardian reports.

The museum at the site of the former camp in southern Poland tweeted screenshots of the items showing train tracks and barracks and requested that Amazon remove them from their site.

“Selling ‘Christmas ornaments’ with images of Auschwitz does not seem appropriate. Auschwitz on a bottle opener is rather disturbing and disrespectful,” the museum tweeted.

It added later that Amazon appeared to have removed the items – but then posted a follow-up saying it had discovered others.
