"We all know that if you’re looking to buy cheesy motivational picture of people sailing, or climbing up a sheer cliff face, the back pages of SkyMall magazine are a pretty safe bet. But where do you go if you’re in the market for an inspirational picture of a famous Nazi death camp?

As it turns out, you go to Walmart:

The big-box superstore explains that a framed reminder that work makes one free (until Nazis gas/shoot/starve/beat/work you to death) makes “…a great addition to your home or office.“

You mean the one that was also selling on Amazon and Sear's websites until they all realized what a 3rd party marketplace seller had placed there?

"Walmart put out a statement saying, “We were horrified to see that this item was on our site. We sincerely apologize, and worked quickly to remove it.” Amazon and Sears also took down the poster."

Yep, the very same one.
Seems to me if you can't monitor what 3rd parties are doing on your website, you shouldn't be collecting money for their products.
BTW, just wondering if the Amazon and Sears offerings also touted it as "makes a great addition for your home or office." My guess is probably yes.

For once I'm speechless. Glad someone complained and they did something about it.

OMFG.
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats
