Yad Vashem has called on Amazon to remove Holocaust denial books from
its online store, accusing the Internet retail giant of facilitating
the spread of hate speech.
The appeal came in the form of a
letter penned by Yad Vashem’s director of the libraries, Dr. Robert
Rozett, to the CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos.
“It has been clear for many years now that Holocaust denial literature
is freely available for purchase over Amazon. Many of the items appear
with glowing readers’ reviews and recommendations for further reading
in the same vein,” Rozett wrote, attaching to his message several
examples of rave reviews of books titled True History of the Holocaust. Did six million really die?
and The Hoax of the Twentieth Century: The Case against the Presumed Extermination of European Jewry.
that Yad Vashem had – in vain – broached the issue with Amazon soon
after the latter’s founding, Rozett told The Jerusalem Post that in
light of an unfortunate change in climate with more visible
antisemitism, “maybe the time is a little more ripe for them to take up
the idea that they need to be more careful in what they sell.”http://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/Amazon-is-asked-to-stop-selling-books-on-Holocaust-denial-482349
