Urban Outfitters Sells Holocaust Themed T-shirts

The fashion brand is selling clothes similar to garb worn by prisoners in concentration camps.

After accusations of anorexia promotion, the American clothes company Urban Outfitters went under fire again. The company released items of clothing resembling garb worn by prisoners of concentration camps during the Holocaust, writes New York Mag. The clothing items in question resemble the uniform of camp prisoners featuring pink triangles over stripes. In the death camps this style of uniform was worn by male prisoners convicted of homosexuality.

The Anti-Defamation League, an organization fighting anti-Semitism since 2013, urged the retail chain to remove the collection from the stores, “Whether intentional or not, this gray and white stripped pattern and pink triangle combination is deeply offensive and should not be mainstreamed into popular culture.”
