      Amazon Under Fire for Nazi Death Camp Puzzle

      Amazon, one of the world's biggest online retailers, has come under fire recently after a puzzle depicting the Nazi death camp Dachau was found on its site, being sold for $24.99 and advertised as suitable for kids ages eight and up.

      According to the German magazine Der Spiegel, the head of a conservative German political party wrote a letter to Amazon, calling the sale of the product "a slap in the face" for survivors of the Holocaust and the descendants of the victims.
