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.
