You can sell anything on Amazon, until you get noticed, and in the age of computer-generated copycats it can pretend not to even know what's for sale there. So it comes to pass that Amazon has now removed the Auschwitz-themed Christmas ornaments, which have been noticed.
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. The memorial and museum later posted an update to say the items had been removed and thanked social media users for their "activity and response" after the post attracted thousands of retweets.
Sadly, Stephen Miller's christmas is not yet ruined. Similar products are still available to those who know what they're looking for.
But later Auschwitz Memorial posted again to say "sadly, it's not over yet".
It said it had found a "disturbing online product" from another seller – a computer mouse-pad bearing the image of a freight train used for deporting people to the concentration camps.
It seems that @amazon has removed all of the "Christmas ornaments" with the images of the former Auschwitz camp. Thank you everyone for your activity and response. https://t.co/VGFnSDMWM9
