Amazon Stops Selling More Than 70 Holocaust Denial Books
Yesterday my blogging colleague Dr. Nicholas Terry discovered that Amazon removed numerous Holocaust denial titles from its website. Hours later some of the media have noticed too, although so far the extent of the ban has been underappreciated.
Nick has now posted a succinct analysis at our anti-denial blog Holocaust Controversies:
In the past month, a wave of articles has been published around the world criticising Amazon for selling Holocaust denial books. To my knowledge, Amazon offered no public response, seemingly ignoring the growing chorus asking why denial literature was on sale through the world’s largest online bookseller. So imagine my surprise when last night I tried searching for Kindle updates to the ‘Holocaust Handbooks’ series on amazon.co.uk and found… nothing.
Not only were the Kindle editions of every book by Carlo Mattogno, Germar Rudolf and every other ‘Revisionist’ author published in the ‘Holocaust Handbooks’ series gone, it also became apparent that Amazon no longer offered the print editions, either. Moreover, amazon.com had yanked the same clutch of titles as well. Nor was the cull restricted to titles published by Germar Rudolf’s firm Castle Hill: independently-published ‘Revisionist’ books by Peter Winter, Richard Harwood, and others had also been pulled from sale. By my count, at least 45 English-language and 27 German-language ‘Revisionist’ books and Kindle ebooks have been removed, tallying only those titles I was reasonably sure had been on offer, from seeing them in Amazon’s ‘Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought’ recommendations
