Auschwitz Memorial Asks Amazon to Remove Death Camp Christmas Ornaments From Site

"Auschwitz on a bottle opener is rather disturbing and disrespectful" tweeted the Polish museum on the site of the death camp

A Polish museum has criticised United States e-commerce giant Amazon for selling Christmas ornaments with images of the Nazi German death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, calling them inappropriate.

And as a result, it appears the retailer removed most of the items from the site.

The Auschwitz Memorial tweeted screenshots of the snowflake and bell-shaped decorations, calling them "disturbing and disrespectful".

Nazi Germany set up the death camp after occupying Poland during World War II.

The products were taken off the website hours after the Auschwitz Memorial and Museum on Sunday morning in Europe asked the site to remove the items.

The Auschwitz ornaments included the iconic image of train tracks leading to the entrance of Auschwitz, and an image of reconstructed barracks with a path down the middle.

The museum then discovered more Auschwitz-themed items on the site from a different seller, tweeting "sadly it's not over". "We ask @amazon to remove the items of those suppliers", the Auschwitz Memorial tweeted early Sunday.

An Amazon spokesperson told Metro newspaper: "All sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who do not will be subject to action, including potential removal of their account".

A Christmas ornament featuring Auschwitz is for sale on Amazon.
