Online Retailers Spur Outrage Over Nazi Memorabilia
Wal-Mart, Amazon.com and Sears came under social media fire from consumers over the holiday weekend for selling a commemorative poster featuring a photo of one of Nazi Germany's concentration camps. Online shoppers were horrified to learn that an image from Dachau's main gate was being sold as a piece of home decor. The offending item was listed on the Wal-Mart page with the description: "Gate with inscription Arbeit Macht Frei, Dachau Concentration Camp, Dachau." Wal-Mart also promised that the poster "would make a great addition to your home or office."
