Selling "Christmas ornaments" with images of Auschwitz does not seem appropriate.

Christmas ornaments and bottle openers featuring the site of the former Auschwitz Nazi death camp are for sale on Amazon.

The Auschwitz Memorial and Museum called Amazon out in a tweet on Sunday which said “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 suppliers.”

Such good taste, Amazon.  What's going to be your "specials" for the next few years.  How about coffee cups with this image?

And maybe school notebooks with this on the cover?

Commemorative dishes with this motif?

AMAZON, are you fucking SICK?

Is there anyone you even KNOW who would buy ANY object with a picture of Auschwitz on it (except of course if inside a history book or encyclopedia) let alone a Christmas tree decoration?

Begofe getting too upset remember there is a souvenir/ gift shops at The Holocaust Museum and at Dealey Plaza in Dallas...

https://www.jfk.org/gift-shopping-museum-store-cafe/

https://collections.ushmm.org/search/catalog/pa1103753

Never underestimate people's capacity for bad taste. They want souvenirs from all the places they visit. There are, of course, gift shops at Auschwitz and Burkenhausen. These kinds of tasteless products are sold to visitors there all the time...

Although I didn't see anything distasteful in the gifts in the museum store, I couldn't open the second link.  I toured Yad Vashem and don't recall that there was a gift store.  If there are gift stores in any of the Holocaust museums in the USA, do they sell toy boxcars, or perfume 'Eu de Cyclone Gas' or lampshades made of human skin?

Amazon is clearly not vetting their merchants and their products. They gotta step up.

Good news, but why did they put them out on the market in the first place?
