I'm amazed someone made these and put them on Amazon

 

Amazon has removed a number of Christmas ornaments featuring images of the Auschwitz concentration camps from sale, amid anger from the museum that manages the site.

Pictures of the Nazi death camp complex were used on a variety of tree ornaments, a mouse pad and a bottle opener, which the Auschwitz Memorial described as "disturbing and disrespectful."

Images used showed the train tracks leading to the entrance of Auschwitz II-Birkenau and a number of scenes inside the camps, where around 1 million Jewish people are estimated to have been killed during World War II.

Amazon removed the products, which were being offered by third-party sellers, when the Auschwitz Memorial tweeted about them.

I found this interesting.  While definitely in bad taste, there are also Hiroshima Christmas ornaments, slavery house ornaments and other atrocity site ornaments that nobody has seemed to get upset about.  

 

I have a problem with concentration camp sites charging money for people to visit them anyway.

some outfit on the radio was advertising a tour of Germany that was heavily focused on the rise of the Nazi party,

 

the background music was Deutscheland Uber Alles.......

I think there is a weird global resurgence of White Supremacy........

 

fear not, the ranks of the Nazi Punchers will grow.

Not weird at all.  When groups feel threatened, they circle the wagons and gang up.
