Now's The Chance To Actually Buy Their Shit

"A thriving trade in Holocaust artefacts from the millions of Jews killed by the Nazis is outraging Jewish groups worldwide.
Internet sales of the yellow stars Jews were forced to wear, dolls allegedly cuddled by children in death camps like Auschwitz and the paper money used in ghettos in Poland are part of the latest craze for militaria collectors.
Earlier this month, a curiosity shop in Montreal, Canada, was condemned by Jewish groups for selling a bar of soap allegedly made from the fat of holocaust victims.

The beige bar of soap, inscribed with a swastika, was displayed in a glass case with a card that said 'Poland 1940'.
The store owner, Abraham Botines - himself Jewish - claimed the soap was 'made out of people... the fat of people' and said he believed it was important to display and sell such items to 'remember the Holocaust'.
Alice Herscovitch, director of Montreal's Holocaust Centre, said: 'The sale of objects which glorify Nazis and hatred, to me, do nothing.
'They certainly don't help us remember. This is disgusting.
'These Holocaust items, they should not be out there in a promotional, sales kind of way.'
The bar of soap - which is likely to be a fake as postwar research showed the Nazis did not make soap from death camp victims - is one of thousands of sought-after Holocaust-related items for collectors."
