You can no longer grace your home with a poster of a concentration camp

The infamous poster with the description: “Gate with inscription Arbeit Macht Frei, Dachau Concentration Camp,” has been removed from their website, according to Heeb.

Walmart statement reads, “We were horrified to see that this item was on our site. We sincerely apologize, and worked quickly to remove it. The item was sold through a third-party seller on our marketplace. We have shared our disappointment with them and have learned they are removing the publisher of this item entirely from inventory.”
