PHOENIX, Ariz. - With Halloween soon approaching, one of the first controversial costumes of the year has just been pulled off shelves.
A Phoenix-based costume shop removed the Anne Frank costume from their website Sunday after receiving criticism on social media.
The costume included a blue dress, brown shoulder bag and a green beret.
Frank, who was Jewish, died in Nazi Germany during the Holocaust. She documented the two-year-long struggle her family faced as they hid.
Her diary was found by her father after her death, and was later published as a literary work in 60 languages.
