Despite Yahoo's decision three weeks ago to end auctions of
Nazi artifacts on its Web site, a group of concentration camp
survivors has sued Yahoo! chairman and chief executive officer
Tim Koogle in France over the controversial auctions, according to published reports.

The suit reportedly accuses Koogle of justifying war crimes
and crimes against humanity, and asks for symbolic damages
of 1 franc, or 15 U.S. cents. The plaintiffs, who include survivors of
the infamous death camp Auschwitz, are also asking that if Yahoo! loses the lawsuit, it
be required to publicize the decision on the Internet and
place advertisements about the case in major U.S. and French newspapers.

Although I can try to understand the pain behind seeing such items being sold, I still think it's a part of history that EVERYONE is entitled to learn about. Not EVERYONE buying these items are Nazi followers, some just like to learn about the world's History.

You can learn about history without buying Nazi artifacts.

No one is suggesting that the history be covered up, they are only asking that potential profit opps are opposed.
