The Jewish Community Council of Victoria has reacted strongly to a report in the Herald Sun of an antique shop in the Melbourne suburb of Mt Evelyn offering Nazi memorabilia.

The Herald Sun reports “photographs of Hitler, Hitler Youth workbooks and Third Reich uniforms were among dozens of Nazi-related items for sale in the virtual auction”.

A spokesperson for The Jewish Community Council of Victoria told J-Wire: “The JCCV is appalled by the promotion of Nazi items in a store on the outskirts of Melbourne.

It is difficult to comprehend how these Nazi symbols of hate representing death and destruction to six million Jews, Australian soldiers on the frontline in World War Two and extreme racist views can be offered for sale in Victoria.

Any such items are an absolute offence to Holocaust survivors, their families and the broader community and should immediately be withdrawn from sale.”
