(CNN Newsource) – Amazon has removed a number of Christmas ornaments, which featured images of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

Pictures of the Nazi death camp were also on a variety of items including a mouse pad and bottle opener.

The Auschwitz Memorial called the items “disturbing and disrespectful.”

An estimated 1.1 million people were killed at Auschwitz during The Holocaust.

A total of six millions Jews were killed in the genocide, according to the museum.

Amazon removed the products, offered by third-party sellers, after the memorial organization tweeted about them.
