Bookseller Dymocks is reviewing the inclusion of a book available online known for its antisemitic content.

On the Jews and Their Lies was written in the 16th century by Martin Luther and demonises Jews.

It is believed to have inspired the Nazis in their push in the genocide of the Jewish population.

Dymocks told J-Wire they use generic wholesale catalogues for their online content and are alarmed when the presence of books of this is made available by those who curate the content.

The company said it is not possible to stock every book available and they use these catalogues as a vehicle for supplying books not in their stores for their customers pointing out that it can take more than six weeks to get the delivery.

Nevertheless, Dymocks said they are grateful to be made aware of books such as On the Jews and Their Lies.

They stressed that this book is not stocked by the company.

Its inclusion on its online catalogue is under review.

The Chair of the Anti-Defamation Commission Dvir Abramovich told media: “This notorious antisemitic tract by a rabid and violent Jew-hater, which called for the murder of rabbis and promoted a program of extermination, served as a blueprint for Hitler’s Final Solution. It should not be sold by any bookstore.

Why in the world is Dymocks sanitizing, mainstreaming, and putting out the welcome mat to a disgusting manifesto, dripping with poison, that fomented genocide against the Jewish people and which inspired the Nazis?”

Abramovich added, “Companies have to walk the walk, and we urge Dymocks to do the right thing, and to immediately stop offering this despicable sermon.”

    The Roman Catholic Inquisitions (called Spanish Inquisition) were still on the Papal statutes until the early 1900’s as was the practice of castrati choir boys.

  2. Adrian Jackson says:

    The Magnacarta also has anti Jews material on it to I understand. It and Luther’s book were documents of there time. It however was the start of democracy in Britain and then the Commonwealth. In the UK Roman Catholics were second class citizens up until the early 19th century too.
