Amazon pulls Christmas ornaments showing Auschwitz concentration camp

National News

Amazon has removed a number of Christmas ornaments featuring images of the Auschwitz concentration camp. Pictures of the Nazi death camp were also on a variety of items including a mouse pad and bottle opener.

The Auschwitz Memorial Museum called the items “disturbing and disrespectful.” 

An estimated 1.1 million people were killed at Auschwitz during the Holocaust. A total of six millions Jews were killed in the genocide according to the museum. 

Amazon removed the products, offered by third-party sellers, after the memorial organization tweeted about them. In a statement, Amazon said, “All sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who do not will be subject to action, including potential removal of their account.”
