US rabbi seeks to ban Shoah-denial items from Amazon

Rabbi Mendy Cohen from Sacramento calls on American ecommerce website to stop selling books supporting notion that Holocaust never happened.

A Sacramento rabbi has formally requested that Amazon stop selling books or propaganda that support the conspiracy theory that the Holocaust didn’t happen.



According to a report last year, a surprising amount of people either deny the Holocaust or weren’t even aware of what it was. The Anti-Defamation League discovered that half the people in the world have never heard of the Holocaust, and a third of the other half were under the impression that it didn’t even happen, according to US News.


There is even a subreddit, holocaustdeniers, that gathers conspiracy theorists together to deny the Holocaust.


Books such as "Did Six Million Really Die? The Truth at Last" by Richard Harwood and "Breaking the Spell: The Holocaust Myth and Reality" by Nicholas Kollerstrom remain ready for purchase on the site.


The American electronic commerce website has already come under fire from the Jewish community for continuing to sell Nazi paraphernalia such as flags and phone cases with swastikas on them. Hamas pendants and flags are also available on the website.


Amazon, however, has joined other major corporations such as Walmart and Sears to ban selling any items with the Confederate flag on them.


"To deny the Holocaust is another mask of blatant anti-Semitism," says Rabbi Mendy Cohen, whose great grandfather was burned alive in a synagogue with 500 other Jews.
