Pixels.com, brands itself as a site that “is the world’s largest art marketplace and print-on-demand technology company,” adding that “we’ve been helping artists sell wall art, home decor, apparel, and other products since 2006 and are home to hundreds of thousands of artists, photographers, graphic designers, illustrators, and iconic brands.”
However, it is also “selling merchandise branded with images from the Nazi Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp,” The Jerusalem Post reported.
Over 1.1 million people were murdered in that death camp by the Nazis during World War Two.
“Beginning in 1942, it also became the largest of the extermination centers where the ‘Endlösung der Judenfrage’ – the final solution to the Jewish question: the Nazi plan to murder European Jews – was carried out,” as recorded by auschwitz.org., the site of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum.
“With just a few clicks, artists and photographers can upload their images to Pixels.com, set their prices for hundreds of different print-on-demand products, and then instantly sell those products to a global audience of online, mobile, and real-world buyers,” Pixels.com says on its site.
While searching for the tag “Birkenau” on the site, one can find, as of the writing of this article: 69 shower curtains, 97 phone cases, 80 throw pillows, 139 greeting cards, 62 beach towels, 72 T-shirts, 78 tote bags, and more, writes The Post.
“In total, there are currently 166 prints featuring images from the death camp'” it reports.
“This is not a new problem for the site,” says the newspaper.
“In August,” it adds, “the official Twitter account for the Auschwitz Memorial Museum called out Pixels and its sister site FineArtAmerica for products ranging from poor taste to Nazi propaganda. But it seems those calls have gone unanswered.”
