          Amazon has taken down several listings from its website that featured images of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp printed on Christmas ornaments and bottle openers.

          The e-commerce giant pulled the products after receiving backlash from the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, which called the items “disturbing and disrespectful.”

          “Selling ‘Christmas ornaments’ with images of Auschwitz does not seem appropriate,” the Polish museum wrote on Twitter. “Auschwitz on a bottle opener is rather disturbing and disrespectful. We ask @amazon to remove the items of those suppliers.”

          Historians estimate that nearly 1 million Jewish people were deported to Auschwitz during World War II.

          The items were sold by a third-party seller listed as “Fcheng,” and bore images of the train tracks leading up to the concentration camp, as well as pictures from within the camp.

          The museum later found other items showing the death camp, including a mouse pad and another ornament — both sold by two other sellers.

          In a statement to PEOPLE, a spokesperson for Amazon confirmed the products were removed.

          “All sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who do not will be subject to action, including potential removal of their account,” the spokesperson told PEOPLE. “The products in question have been removed.”

          Amazon’s policy on offensive products prohibits “products that promote or glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual, or religious intolerance or promote organizations with such views.”

          As of Monday morning, the sellers’ accounts are still active. One account includes a number of ornaments and items with scenes from towns and tourism sites across Poland.
