      Netherlands Foundation Halts Sale of Nazi Barbed Wire


      The foundation in charge of a former Nazi concentration camp in the Netherlands on Tuesday cancelled the planned sale of pieces of barbed wire dug up at the site after protests from Jewish groups.

      Kamp Amersfoort Foundation director Harry Ruijs said he would no longer sell the 50 pieces of wire for 10 euros ($13) apiece to finance an exhibition of artifacts discovered at the site around 50 kilometres (30 miles) southwest of Amsterdam.

      "It seems we have hurt some people and it was not our intention at all," Ruijs told AFP. "That's why we decided to halt the sale."
