Jewish Groups Demand Italy Take Action Against Wine Bottles Saluting Nazis

September 28, 2019 from the Vosizneias.com:

" Italy is facing renewed backlash for allowing the continued sale of wine bottles that feature Adolf Hitler’s face and Nazi slogans on its labels."

"The controversial wine bottles, produced by Italian winemaker Vina Lunardelli as part of a 'Historical Series,' features Nazi slogans, and pictures of Hitler and notorious SS members, such as Heinrich Himmler."

"Over the summer, members of the Simon Wiesenthal Center reported and photographed the bottles being sold in supermarkets from Venice in northern Italy to Puglia in the south."

"There may be no legal sanctions yet for domestic sales of hate. Its export, however, to Germany and France—with their existing legislation—and across the E.U. must be monitored and penalized."

"A draft law presented in 2017 to the Italian Parliament “to criminalize the propagation of images or contents of the Fascist, Nazi or related anti-democratic parties and ideologies” was passed in the Lower Chamber but abandoned by the Senate, following dissolution of the legislature. Italian law requires the forfeiture of all bills that did not reach the final vote in both houses."
