An online retailer has pulled a costume from its website that depicted Holocaust victim Anne Frank.
Screenshots of the costume for sale at HalloweenCostumes.com posted to social media show a smiling girl wearing World War II-era clothing and a beret. The costume was quickly criticized on Twitter.
Carlos Galindo-Elvira, who leads the Anti-Defense League's Arizona office said on Twitter that the costume trivializes Frank's memory.
