Amazon takes down Auschwitz-themed products after public shaming
The Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum in Poland had to turn to Twitter get Amazon to remove Auschwitz-themed products.
In a tweet Sunday morning, the museum shared images of Auschwitz-themed Christmas ornaments and bottle openers available on Amazon, describing them as "rather disturbing and disrespectful." Twitter, too, was flooded with critical responses to the products.
Selling "Christmas ornaments" with images of Auschwitz does not seem appropriate. Auschwitz on a bottle opener is rather disturbing and disrespectful. We ask @amazon to remove the items of those suppliershttps://t.co/0uG2JG558e pic.twitter.com/ucZoTWPk1WTech, Amazon, Jeff Bezos, Anti Semitism, and Christmas Decorations
