A lampshade allegedly made from the skins of Jews who died in the Holocaust may be sold at a British auction. The lamp forms part of a controversial collection of artifacts collected by Robert Lenkiewicz, a late portrait artist. Jewish leaders fear the lamp may now be sold to the highest bidder to help pay off debts owed by the estate of the artist, who died in 2002.
