Vile Nazi propaganda books filled with antisemitism branding Jews ‘the devil’ on sale on Amazon

'Der Giftpilz' translated as 
The Poisonous Mushroom
was published in German 
in 1938 at the height of The Third Reich
Antisemitic books that branded Jewish people "the devil" have been translated into English and sold on Amazon.

The publisher of the books, Julius Streicher was a friend of Hitler and was convicted of crimes against humanity and eventually executed in 1946.

The first book, Der Giftpilz, which translates as The Poisoned Mushroom, was published in German in 1938 and was used as evidence during the the Nuremberg trials in 1945.

"This book brands the Jew as a persecutor of the labour class, as a race defiler, devil in human form, a poisonous mushroom, and a murderer," said the trial report.

"This particular book instructed school children to recognise the Jew by caricature of his physical features, shown on pages 6 and 7; taught them that the Jew abuses little boys and girls, on page 3-; and that the Jewish Bible permits all crime, pages 13 - 17."

The book's multi-millionaire publisher Julius Streicher was the founder and editor of the Nazi newsletter Der Stürmer during the Second World War.

But the 64-page propaganda paperback has now been translated into English and is being sold on Amazon for £7.67, after it was published by Third Reich Books on Amazon's independent publishing platform CreateSpace on July 29, 2017.

In its first pages a mother warns her son not to pick the bad mushrooms and compares them to Jewish people.

She tells him that "Jews are bad people" and that it is "difficult to recognise the Jews as rogues and criminals."

Another antisemitic book, Der Pudelmopsdackelpinscher or The Mongrel, was published in 1940 and advocates the killing of Jews.

The Mongrel's Amazon description says: "This book is also rare, even among Third Reich books, in its open call to totally destroy Jewry, and indeed world-wide, as a necessary final step in an inescapable struggle to the death between Jewry and all the non-Jewish folks of the world."

Executive producer Sheldon Lazarus told the Daily Mail: "For Amazon to be selling Nazi kid's books is unbelievable but for them to print them in Britain is just appalling. These are not books for collectors but for our children.

"If Amazon can predict what you want buy then they should be able to stop this filth."

The books were uncovered by producers as they researched their forthcoming More4 documentary Auschwitz Untold, which will be screened tomorrow.

Amazon recently faced controversy for selling Christmas decorations and novelty bottle openers that picture Auschwitz.

Products on offer included star and bell-shaped Christmas tree baubles featuring photos of the gateway and interior of the Nazi death camp in occupied Poland.
