Amazon removed ornaments and a bottle opener with pictures of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin on Monday, following a JNS inquiry to the online retailer.

They were available on the site by a seller called Weekino.

Separately, Amazon had been under fire for allowing third-party sellers to offer Christmas ornaments, a bottle opener and a mouse pad that showed images of Auschwitz, where the Nazis killed more than 1 million people—the majority of them Jewish men, women and children—during the Holocaust.

The Auschwitz memorial called the image of the camp on the bottle opener “disturbing and disrespectful.”

Amazon confirmed that the site has removed the offensive products.

“All sellers must follow our selling guidelines, and those who do not will be subject to action, including potential removal of their account,” an Amazon spokesperson told JNS on Monday. “The products in question have been removed.”
