From the fashion experts who launched, and withdrew, handbags adorned with swastikas in 2007 comes another gem.

This time it’s a baby top looking like the uniform worn by Jewish victims of the Holocaust in Nazi concentration camps – a black and white horizontally striped T-shirt with a yellow six-pointed star on the left breast, evoking the star of David that Jewish prisoners were forced to wear.

Following criticisms of insensitivity, thoughtlessness and a lack of education and awareness from Jewish organisations the Spanish chain quickly withdrew the product and pledged to destroy all the stock, apologising for offence caused but claiming that the design was inspired by Westerns and part of its Cowboy Collection for kids.
