EBay: Sorry for Holocaust Items

EBay apologized on Sunday and swiftly removed about 30 items of Holocaust memorabilia, including an Auschwitz uniform believed to belong to a Polish baker who died there. Other items included the yellow Stars of David that Jews were forced to wear by Nazis, a pair of shoes belonging to a death camp victim, a Holocaust victim’s battered suitcase, and a concentration camp toothbrush. EBay also said it donated $40,000 to charity. The items were found after an investigation by the British newspaper the Mail on Sunday, and eBay also admitted to the paper that they had no idea how long the items had been up for auction.
