Auschwitz inscribed t-shirts offered on online shopping site





The proprietors of the site www.cafepress.com seem to think that the sale of t-shirts with Holocaust inscriptions is amusing.

The most popular t-shirt offered on the online shopping site is a shirt with the inscription "My grandparents went to Auschwitz and all I got was this lousy t-shirt" printed on the front.

Also printed on the shirt is the gruesome inscription "Arbeit Macht Frei", which was the inscription that met deportees at the gates of the German concentration camps.

Following recent complaints by Holocaust survivors and their families offended by the inscriptions on the T-shirts, the Anti-Defamation League contacted the proprietors of the site asking them to remove the dubious merchandise.

I am suspicious of this obvious afront to everyone,considering only the mentally immature would wear such an attire.
It in fact reminds me of the double twist commonly used by propagandists, wanting reaction to a deliberate set up that will be deplored by everyone.
NATO forces called the 'Stay Behind' military were used in such purpose, killing innocent Italians, then offering proof it was done by Communists, keeping any socialist tendencies under weight of prosecution of an angry public.
When the obvious makes the reality impossible, or when something is to impossible to be true, quite possibly it is.
