eBay Apologizes for Nazi Memorabilia

JewishPress Logo

The online auction website eBay apologized for allowing Nazi memorabilia to be sold under its auspices.

The site removed about 30 items for sale within hours of an investigative report published in the Sunday edition of the Daily Mail. The report went up on the newspaper’s website late Saturday night.

“We are very sorry these items have been listed on eBay and we are removing them,” eBay said in a statement Sunday. “We don’t allow listings of this nature, and dedicate thousands of staff to policing our site and use the latest technology to detect items that shouldn’t be for sale.

“We very much regret that we didn’t live up to our own standards. We have made a donation to charity to reflect our concern.”

The site in its rules rejects the sale of Nazi memorabilia.

Among the items being offered for sale were a complete Auschwitz uniform, yellow Stars of David armbands worn by Jews during World War II, a Holocaust victim’s suitcase and a pair of shoes belonging to a death camp victim.

eBay makes 10 percent of the final sale of items auctioned on its site.

    I wrote in 2010 to piotr.setkiewicz at the Auschwitz Museum about the sale of artifacts on Ebay. The museum could have checked the site every now and then

    It is a disgrace and shame what is going on,all because of money
    after doing wrong it is easy to retreat.
    But the damage is already done and you cant dismiss simply
    What about the profits ?The world is a mess,people dont realy
    know the diference between right or wrong.Our future is in danger
    The holocaust cant be forgotten or denyed or there will be a chance
    to repeat the horrors anywhere.

  3. the world is not falling into the pit. we are already there.
