Coffee cups with a small Hitler portrait are pictured in Bielefeld Germany, Thursday, April 10, 2014. A small German furniture chain says it inadvertently ordered several thousand of these coffee cups bearing a faint portrait of Adolf Hitler from China. Christian Zurbrueggen, co-owner of the Zurbrueggen chain, told German news agency dpa on Thursday that 175 of the offending cups were sold before customers pointed out the problem. Zurbrueggen said: “I want to take the cups out of circulation.” The remaining 4,825 cups have been destroyed and he says he’s offering a 20-euro (US dollar 27.60) voucher for the return of the others, sold for 1.99 euros each.
