London - The United Kingdom’s Imperial War Museum transferred to the office of the country’s chief rabbi human remains that a are thought to belong to six Holocaust victims.

The remains, which the museum had kept since 1997, are to be buried later this month, The Jewish News of London reported Thursday.

A container holding the remains of one child and five adults was given to the museum in 1997 as part of a collection of Holocaust-related items said to have originated at Auschwitz, the report said.

In 2005, testing confirmed the vessel held adult and child remains, though the numbers could not be totally guaranteed, the report also said.

It was “no longer appropriate“ to hold on to the container, said a spokesperson for the museum, which is scheduled to open a new Holocaust gallery in 2021.

What's wrong with putting Holocaust victims' bones on display in a museum like a piece of pottery? Idiots.
