Amazon pulls Auschwitz-themed Christmas ornaments

Amazon has withdrawn a range of "Christmas ornaments" displaying images of a former concentration camp from its website. The move followed a tweet from Poland's Auschwitz Memorial calling on the retailer to remove the "Disturbing and disrespectful" merchandise. It included Christmas tree decorations, a bottle opener and a mouse-pad. All displayed scenes from the Nazi death camp where millions of people were killed in World War Two. The Christmas merchandise featured images from Auschwitz including the railway line leading to its infamous gates, the barbed wire fences and the buildings where it housed victims - mainly Jews. Later Auschwitz Memorial posted again to say "Sadly, it's not over yet".
