Auschwitz Museum condemns online stores with items with images of starving WWII prisoners
Anger over concentration camp cushions and phone cases: Auschwitz Museum condemns online stores with items with images of starving WWII prisoners
- Fine Art America and Pixels are online marketplaces that produce for sellers
- Pillows, iPhone covers, beach towels and carrier bags are equipped with Nazi propaganda
- Auschwitz Museum closed the websites yesterday for lack of supervision
- Today they still have Stalin shower curtains and Hitler yoga mats
The Auschwitz Museum has sentenced two online stores for storing pillows and iPhone covers with images of victims of concentration camps.
Fine Art America mentioned an iPhone X case & # 39; Men Suffering from Starvation & # 39; for £ 20, while the Pixels store advertised a pillow with & # 39; Soon To Be Extermined Arrives By Cattle Car & # 39; for £ 20.
The websites not only host the stores for their sellers, but also print, frame and distribute products.
The Auschwitz Museum tweeted yesterday: & # 39; Yes @FineArtAmerica @shoppixels. It is probably a complicated automatic system where people can upload their works.
Fine Art America noted a 14 "by 14" & soon to be exterminated victims come by cattle car to Auschwitz Poland Around 1943 throw pillow & # 39; for $ 24 (£ 19.76)
Meanwhile, a barbarian & # 39; Men who suffer from hunger in a Nazi Iphone X Case & # 39; sold for $ 25 (£ 20.59)
Stocktrek Images, the store that designed the Auschwitz Hunger Phone Cover, seemed to have limited inventory today, but customers could still purchase an iPhone cover with a German U-boat sinking an Allied ship for £ 18.48
& # 39; However, verification can help, because things sometimes go beyond bad taste and become disrespectful. Especially if there are images of victims. & # 39;
The telephone cover and the cushion are no longer available, but there is still a collection of items with Adolf Hitler, the Wehrmacht and the Hitler youth.
There is not only a wide range of Third Reich items, but also for a litany of other evil regimes, including those of Joseph Stalin and Kim Jong-un.
And these horrific images can be replicated in countless items so that customers can order the exact same Adolf Hitler images on beach towels, yoga mats, greeting cards and cases.

Pixels is the parent company of Fine Art America and the items on each website seem interchangeable and offer the same stock for the same price.
They help designers and artists to create tailor-made products, from interior to clothing.
Fine Art America and Pixels say: & # 39; With just a few clicks, artists and photographers can upload their images to FineArtAmerica.com, set their prices for hundreds of different print-on-demand products and then immediately sell these products to a worldwide audience of online, mobile and real buyers.
A shower curtain with a portrait of Joseph Stalin can be purchased for £ 45
In the & # 39; War Is Hell Store & # 39; shoppers can order iPhone cases with Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin
A & # 39; premium & # 39; Yoga mat with a portrait of Adolf Hitler can be purchased for £ 48
& # 39; Fine Art America fulfills every order on behalf of the artists – takes care of printing, framing, matting, packaging, shipping, collecting payments from buyers and sending profit to the artists. & # 39;
Both websites say that they are & # 39; the world's largest art market and print-on-demand technology company. & # 39;
Fine Art America or her daughter Pixels were not available for comment.
