Mask featuring swastika and Hitler removed by Amazon

'From Auschwitz-themed Christmas decorations to books by Nazis, this is another example of Amazon not doing enough to combat the selling of Nazi memorabilia'

A mask featuring a swastika and a picture of Adolf Hitler have been taken down by Amazon.

The item – a ‘3D Ski Face Mask’ – appears to have been removed by the online retail giant on Wednesday afternoon, amid criticism from Holocaust education groups.

Karen Pollock, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust said: “These masks are grossly offensive -there really is no  excuse for Amazon to be selling a protective face mask with the image of Hitler and a huge swastika on it.

From Auschwitz-themed Christmas decorations to books by Nazis, this is another example of Amazon not doing enough to combat the selling of Nazi memorabilia.”

An Amazon spokesperson confirmed the items had been removed.
