How long does it take Amazon to ban a book they hate?
We tested it. On April 16, 2021, a new book of ours was put into international distribution, and on the same day it also showed up on Amazon.com for sale – until yesterday, April 30, 2021, when the page was removed. So here is the answer to the above question: two weeks!
The reason why we did not announce the publication of this new book anywhere on the day it appeared is because we wanted to see whether it makes a difference in the speed with which Amazon pulls the plug on it. Well, it turns out that it makes not much of a difference. In other words: the usual suspects are constantly monitoring Amazon for unwanted contents, and it doesn’t take them long to find it.
Enough of attention to the Powers of Evil. Here now the announcement of our new book, which is Volume 44 of our prestigious series Holocaust Handbooks:
To this day, the 1979 book Auschwitz Inferno by former Auschwitz inmate and putative Sonderkommando member Filip Müller has a great influence both on the popular perception of Auschwitz and on historians trying to probe this camp’s history. This book critically analyzes Müller’s various post-war writings, which are full of exaggerations, falsehoods and plagiarized text passages. The author also scrutinizes the testimonies of eight other former Sonderkommando members who similarly lack regard for exactitude and truth: Dov Paisikovic, Stanisław Jankowski, Henryk Mandelbaum, Ludwik Nagraba, Joshuah Rosenblum, Aaron Pilo, David Fliamenbaum and Samij Karolinskij.
