Sacramento Rabbi Calls On Amazon To Stop Selling Books Denying Holocaust

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A week after Amazon stopped selling Confederate flags in the wake of a deadly shooting, Jewish organizations are calling on Amazon to ban books denying the Holocaust.

Sacramento Rabbi Mendy Cohen is leveling serious charges against Amazon for selling books denying the Holocaust.

Blatant anti-Semitism,” he said. “To deny the Holocaust is another mask of blatant anti-Semitism.”

The books say the stories of gas chambers and ovens in World War II Nazi Germany are made up.

“My great-grandfather was burnt in a synagogue alive with 500 Jews that the Nazis burned,” he said.

The books carry titles like “Did 6 Million Really Die?” and “Synagogue of Satan.”

A social media petition is calling on the company to remove all Nazi propaganda from the site.

Compounding the dilemma for Amazon is its recent stance on the Confederate flag. The company joined Walmart, Sears and eBay by stopping sales of merchandise with the flag in the wake of a South Carolina shooting that left nine people dead.

Amazon has a list of offensive products it refuses to sell, which they say includes products that promote or glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual or religious intolerance. But Amazon officials did not respond to CBS13 for the story.
