Abstract

The auction of a wristwatch belonging to Hitler. A contemporary tableware brand that - besides tulips and windmills - depicts Anne Frank on a dessert bowl. The sale of refrigerator magnets in WWII museum shops of memorial centers. The mixing of remembrance and commerce evokes discomfort, and often outrage. Lets examine and discuss much more explicitly where, why and how the economic handling of the Holocaust past takes shape, argues Kees Ribbens.
