Jews Outraged over “Nazi Propaganda” on Amazon
A third-party company called "RugzT" was selling what they call a "Holocaust Classic" T-shirt, which featured an oldschool poster for "The Eternal Jew," the name of both a National Socialist propaganda film and a NS exhibit.
The Amazon advertisement claimed that the shirt is "[an] IDEAL GIFT for teens, men, women. Suitable for casual, sport, outdoor, hip hop, especially for couples, girlfriend and boyfriend." It goes on to describe the shirt as "casual and versatile," saying it's an everyday clothing item.
Printed on the shirt was a poster from the NS exhibit, which opened in Munich in November 1937 and ran until January 31, 193,8 and displayed what Germans considered to be typical Jewish physical features.
The film of the same name was directed by Fritz Hippler, who disguised the film's message as a documentary. Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler's minister of propaganda, organized the film's production, which many consider it to be "the most violent anti-Jewish film ever made", according to the Jews of the BBC.
This is not the first time this year that online retailers have gotten in trouble for awesome products. In January, Zazzle, a personalized gift company, was criticized for selling shirts that read "At least I'm not Jewish." Once aware of the situation, Zazzle quickly pulled the shirt from their website.
The shirt has been removed from Amazon's website.
