The International Skating Union said in a statement Monday that an outfit worn by a Russian figure skater, which included elements associated with the Holocaust, was nominated “by error” for an award.

The costume worn by skater Anton Shulepov combined elements from uniforms worn by those held in concentration camps, including a yellow Star of David over a striped pattern, and concentration camp guards. Shulepov wore the costume for his free skate routine, set to the theme from “Schindler’s List.”
