German Furniture Store Sells Hundreds of Hitler Coffee Mugs
NBC News – A furniture store in western Germany sold nearly 200 coffee mugs bearing a portrait of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler after it mistakenly ordered 5,000 of the cups from China. The company put the cups on display at four of its outlets before the “bad buy” was recognized, one of the store’s owners said on Friday.
“Our staff is devastated by this very unfortunate error,” Christian Zurbrueggen, co-owner of the Zurbrueggen chain store told NBC News. “We have been in touch with the manufacturer … to prevent further distribution of these nasty cups.”
