Residents of a village in rural England were shocked by the recent discovery that a local “phone-box library” was stuffed with antisemitic and Nazi literature.

According to The Daily Mail, such miniature libraries are a common way for residents of East Winch to share books, but no one expected the precise kind of literature that recently appeared.

Among the books found were The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, Hitler’s Mein Kampf, Norman Finkelstein’s The Holocaust Industry, White Power by American neo-Nazi George Lincoln Rockwell, and other texts advocating racism and antisemitism.

The Daily Mail quoted local resident Bobby Tate as saying of the troubling situation, “I asked myself, am I living in a Nazi village?”

“There are a few of these phone boxes in Norfolk,” he recounted. “They are used to exchange books and are like an unofficial library. I have driven past it hundreds of times. So, I was walking past it so I decided to have a look. I opened the door and one of the first books I saw was Mein Kampf.”

“I thought ok this is a historical book, it might have been put there by someone who is interested in history,” he continued. “Then I looked at the other books and I soon realized there were other Nazi books — books about the so-called Jewish conspiracy, about race and IQ and about Aryans.”

“I was shocked!” Tate exclaimed.
