Fashion website Red Bubble's 'disturbing' Holocaust miniskirt, homewares

Popular shopping website Red Bubble has been slammed for selling clothing and homewares emblazoned with images from a Nazi death camp. 

Museum officials at Auschwitz tweeted the images of a mini skirt and cushion, featuring several signature black and white chimneys and the train tracks on which prisoners were transported to the grounds. 

"Do you really think that selling such products as pillows, mini skirts or tote bags with the images of Auschwitz - a place of enormous human tragedy where over 1.1 million people were murdered - is acceptable?" museum officials captioned the Tweet. 

"This is rather disturbing and disrespectful."

A £12 (NZ$25) tote bag with an image of Auschwitz's electric fence and the words "Attention! High voltage! Risk of death!" written in German was also listed for sale, as well as t-shirt reading "Dr Holocaust wants you to get a beard."

From 1940 until 1945, more than 1 million prisoners were killed in Auschwitz-Birkenau, which was operated by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland.

Red Bubble responded to the tweet, thanking officials for bringing the listings to its attention. 

"The nature of this content is not acceptable and is not in line with our Community Guidelies... We are taking immediate action to remove these and similar works available on these product types," a spokesperson wrote. 

It's since removed the offending listings.
