eBay Learns Hosting Holocaust Memorabilia Isn’t a Good Look, Apologizes

eBay is apologizing after several items, supposedly from the Holocaust, surfaced on the auction site and turned out to be terrible PR. For a time, users in Britain could bid on other Holocaust items, like a $800 suitcase and a $300 “concentration camp toothbrush.” The items were pulled within hours of the Mail’s investigation and eBay apologized profusely in an attempt to diffuse the international PR nightmare. Even though eBay said it had no knowledge of the market, a seller told the newspaper that they’ve been doing it for a year. He said he was going to use the profits from the items to make a book about the Holocaust.
