Now that would make a nice T-shirt.

A nationwide fashion chain is planning to market a T-shirt bearing a print of a Nazi map of Europe in 1943.

TossPot came up with the idea following the success of a shirt whose design is a reproduction of an antique map depicting the transatlantic slave trade.

On the map, the west coast of Africa bears the words "slave labor" and "area of supply."

Customers have been gushing about the T-shirt: "I would recommend it to anyone looking for something quirky and unusual," said one.

A spokesman for TossPot said: "It's triffic, innit? We're shifting piles of these.

"Now we've dug out a map of Europe from 1943 which shows the extent of Nazi occupation and has great words like 'Reichskommissariat Ostland' and 'Auschwitz' and stuff like that on it. Should be a big seller."

The company had received complaints about their slave trade T-shirt, but has no intention of removing it from sale.

"There's always some miserable killjoy out there, isn't there. What's the problem? These maps really existed.

"These shirts are just a bit of fun and if anyone takes offence, well they ought to get a life."
