Zara Clothing Company Apologies for Children's Shirt Resembling Holocaust Prison Uniform

FSWC Reports:


Zara is offering a t-shirt reminiscent of prisoner uniforms worn by Jews in Nazi concentration camps. The shirt is for toddlers and is labeled as "a striped sheriff t-shirt", and can be bought for NIS 79.90. Zara has in the meantime taken down the item, destroyed the inventory and apologized in a response. 

The shirt has navy and white horizontal stripes with a yellow star on the top side shaped and colored like the star used by the Nazi regime to mark Jews during the Holocaust. The main difference is that Zara's yellow star has the word "Sheriff" on it, but its visibility is marred by the yellow background which makes the word rather unclear.
