Criticism of Christie’s Jewelry Sale with Ties to Holocaust – The Gentleman Report


Christie’s has faced considerable criticism for auctioning off jewelry from an estate associated with the profiteering from Jewish businesses during the Holocaust. Despite their pledge to contribute a portion of the proceeds towards Holocaust research and education, the auction house has encountered difficulties in finding willing beneficiaries for the funds. The sale of jewelry originating from the estate of Heidi Horten, whose spouse established a retail empire in Germany by exploiting Nazi policies, yielded an astounding $202 million. Yad Vashem, the memorial institution in Israel dedicated to Holocaust victims, along with other Jewish organizations in the country, have respectfully declined the offered donations from Christie’s. Deidrea Miller, a spokesperson for Christie’s, affirmed the company’s ongoing efforts in actively searching for suitable organizations to allocate the funds to.
