* more on the “suppression” of A FLOOD OF EVIL by Amazon in Germany and the US
Posted by Lew Weinstein on March 16, 2017
My questions to Kindle Support services …
1. I did not find any guideline that mentions swastikas … did I miss this guideline?
2. What happened in October 2016 (.de site) and in March 2017 (.com site) to cause my book to be suppressed after it had been approved in June 2016? Somebody decided to take action. Why?

We take violations of laws and proprietary rights very seriously. It is your responsibility to ensure that your content doesn’t violate laws or copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity, or other rights. Just because content is freely available does not mean you are free to copy and sell it. In accordance with German law, we cannot publish content that displays swastikas. I’m so sorry, but we can’t offer any additional insight or action on this matter.
Several days ago, I changed the cover to remove the swastika, and AFOE was restored to both the German and US sites.
