Vatican condemns anti-Semitic film sales


The Vatican condemned Internet sales of anti-Semitic and pro-Nazi films.

The Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano called sales of such material on and other
sites “an unexpected boom, a sweeping success, that is spreading dangerously throughout Europe.”

Sales of films such as the notoriously anti-Semitic “Jud Suss,” produced in Nazi Germany in 1940, “are often disguised as a simple material of historical documentation,” it said in an article Friday.

The article was commenting on a report on such sales in the German newspaper Die Welt.
