Walmart yanks decorative poster of Nazi concentration camp

Walmart and a few other retailers have pulled a poster depicting Germany's Dachau concentration camp from their online stores.

The poster — which somehow wound up in Amazon's and Sears' catalogs as well — shows the camp's main gate with the words "arbeit macht frei," a Nazi slogan meaning "work makes you free." Walmart apologized for the item, saying it was listed by a third-party retailer and not the store itself.

"We have shared our disappointment with them and have learned they are removing the publisher of this item entirely from inventory," the company said in a statement.
