Examples of items that will generally be removed:
Items that bear symbols of the Nazis, the SS, or the KKK, including authentic German WWII memorabilia such as Olympic medals that bear such marks
The Enigma featured in ebay displayed the Nazi insignia and therefore a symbol of the Nazi regime. I know that ebay has to have rules but sometimes these blanket rules pick out items that are not by their very nature either promoting or glorifying the Nazi regime.
The Enigma is a classic piece of technology that did in part lead to the development of the Colossus computer which is the forerunner to the modern PC.
If it had been an Enigma without the Nazi insignia the auction would probably not have been pulled.
