Amazon removes shirts with notorious photo of Nazi executing Jew

Amazon has removed an assortment of clothes sold on its UK site emblazoned with a notorious Holocaust photo in which a Jew in Ukraine is kneeling in front of a mass grave as a Nazi officer points a gun to his head, moments before shooting him, Channel 12 news reported on Saturday.

The retail giant took down the items plastered with the photo, known as “The Last Jew in Vinnitsa,” after it was contacted by the Israeli TV network.

The items included a hoodie, a t-shirt and a sweater pullover in various colors, all with the same Holocaust picture on them.

In the description of the items, the sellers from “Harma Art” wrote, “Choose from our great collection of authentic designs and stand out from the crowd!”

11. is this part of an attack on Amazon?

Earlier tonight, I saw a piece on some tv news where The Wall Street Journal pointed out some 4,000 items being sold through Amazon after recalls. (The items were removed after the report came out in print).

That's a lot of products, but a drop in the bucket compared to everything available.

Maybe I just see ratfuckery everywhere in the age of TrumPutin and Moscow Mitch.

3. So, they are now shirtless at Amazon?

 

Or did they put on different ones after removing this one?

4. That's what I thought when I read the headline. I hope you're ready for...

....the backlash when it comes from those who feel that it is still too soon for any humor about the Nazis, even something as oblique as shirtless Amazonians.

9. They put on different ones, only to have those removed.

Poor dears! So many bare-chested individuals.

A third-party company called "RugzT" was selling what they call a "Holocaust Classic" T-shirt, which featured a Nazi poster for "The Eternal Jew," the name of both a Nazi propaganda film and a Nazi exhibit.

12. These vile people are coding their descriptions to slip through whatever filters Amazon uses...

...for appropriateness. I cannot believe Amazon itself has any such intentions. But look at the way this dreck is described: a T-shirt suitable for men, women, or teens.

I want to throw up. The troll army has arisen. Nazi zombies in their stinking graveclothes. New recruits, and a sprinkle of Russian bots to give them a nudge then stand back laughing their asses off. They don't have to sell so much as a single coffee mug before banning to get their point across and word of their existence out.

For this our fathers fought WWII? Don't think so.

How are these Amazon ads found? I hope there's nothing random about the search-and-destroy mission.

8. I didn't need to stretch logic

To understand your title.

Of all the haunting photos existing of the Holocaust, that is one of the worst. Decency is dead.

14. I'm not an Amazon vendor, but I do know that posting new products

by vendors is fully automated. Amazon does not review every product a vendor posts. It depends on user complaints to discover unsuitable products, although there is, no doubt, an algorithm that looks at product descriptions for offensive language.

Only if a complaint is received does a human being look at new product listings. It would be impossible to do it any other way, really.
