Online retailer Redbubble criticised over Auschwitz-themed pillows and miniskirts

Online retailer Redbubble criticised over Auschwitz-themed pillows and miniskirts

Redbubble says the products are "not acceptable" - and confirmed immediate action was being taken to remove them from its site.



Dozens of products featuring images taken at the site were listed online by Redbubble, a "global marketplace" that allows users to sell merchandise with their own prints on.

As screenshots of the controversial items circulated online, the Auschwitz Memorial tweeted the website and asked: "Do you really think that selling such products as pillows, miniskirts or tote bags with the images of Auschwitz - a place of enormous human tragedy where over 1.1 million people were murdered - is acceptable?"

"This is rather disturbing and disrespectful."

Redbubble replied a short time later, writing: "We appreciate that this has been brought to our attention. The nature of this content is not acceptable and is not in line with our community guidelines. We are taking immediate action to remove these and similar works available on these product types.
