What kind of sick company names a product in honor of a Nazi death camp?

Posted by Alexandra Watkins on July 27, 2011

Trust me. There is nothing even remotely funny about a gas chamber. My 1999 visit to the Bergen Belsen concentration camp in northern Germany was hands-down the most sobering experience of my life and one of the most unforgettable travel experiences I’ve ever had. I was reading The Diary of Anne Frank at the time and it was all too real seeing where she died. Imagining the horror of what she and 50,000 innocent people were subjected to there is beyond comprehension. What kind of sick company would intentionally name a product in honor of a place where such unspeakable crimes against humanity were committed?  The British clothing label Evil Twin, makers of the “Belsen Was a Gas Military Parka.” This name goes beyond bad taste. It’s absolutely shameful.
