Amazon Removes Auschwitz Christmas Ornaments

Amazon has removed some Christmas ornaments depicting Nazi concentration camps, after complaints on social media.

The Auschwitz Memorial in Poland, tweeted images of ornaments and other trinkets, including bottle openers, Sunday.

"Selling 'Christmas ornaments' with images of Auschwitz does not seem appropriate,"the memorial wrote, calling on Amazon to remove the items.

Most of the sellers' products feature pictures from tourist sites around the world. One company, which offered a tree ornament showing a freight car on the tracks to Auschwitz, is still selling ornaments featuring Hiroshima.
