“Americans Against Anti-Semitism” found 30 classic Nazi propaganda films available for sale or streaming on the Amazon Prime video network. Simon Wiesenthal Center Associate Dean and Global Social Action Director, Rabbi Abraham Cooper, penned an open letter directed toward Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos on Wednesday in which he calls for the ubiquitous platform to remove Nazi propaganda films that are currently available. The advocacy group “Americans Against Anti-Semitism” found 30 classic Nazi propaganda films – from “The Eternal Jew” to the Riefenstahl Collections – that were available for sale or streaming on the Amazon Prime video network. Leni Riefenstahl’s films were instrumental in spreading the propaganda that was key to the Nazi’s rise to power, while The Eternal Jew (Der ewige Jude) was commissioned by Nazi Germany’s Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels and depicts Jews as a group that wanders from land to land and likens them to rats. “In just a few days, January 20 will mark 80 years to the day that 15 German government ministers of state, among them eight PhDs and sons of clergy, voted unanimously to murder every Jew within reach of the Nazi Third Reich.
