“Nazi Chess set”

Filed under: The past that is still with us — John Maass @ 6:35 am

Just when you think the world has seen it all….

From a website called totallyjewish.com, here is a report of a “Nazi Chess set” in which Hitler is one of the kings.  Holocaust Education Trust Chairman Lord Greville Janner stated ““These chess sets are revolting. They trivialise the Nazi murderers and show a total lack of sensitivity to the memories of their victims. I am contacting colleagues in Turkey and hope that pressure can be brought so that these so-called games will be taken off sale as soon as possible.”

  1. This is a joke. What about Risk, Axis and Allies and pretty much any video game centered around WWII (e.g. Call of Duty, Wolfenstein, etc.) I suppose these should be banned as well? Give me a break.
