Nazi Bed Covers Withdrawn after Indian Jewish Protest

A new line of bedspreads called the “NAZI Collection” will be withdrawn from stores after India’s tiny Jewish community protested, a furnishings dealer said.

The brochure of the collection featured swastikas and its promoters said that NAZI stood for “New Arrival Zone of India.”

The dealer apologized for the “obnoxious name” and agreed to withdraw the line in a letter this week to the Indian Jewish Federation, the body said in a letter received Tuesday evening.

Last year, a restaurant in Mumbai — home to around 5,000 of the total 6,000 Jews in India — changed its name from “Hitler’s Cross” following similar complaints.
