Strange Hitler Notebooks In ESLite In Taiwan


I reported early last week that I had found this strange notebook in a bookstore in Taiwan. I was so shocked that I didn’t really know what to do. They had Adolf Hitler saluting on the cover page. This notebook was right next to a Che Guevara notebook. I was really appalled by this and needed to say a few words on this.

I started snapping away once I found my target. The staff were right on me to stop taking pictures, but I continued and then I left.

The notebooks cost 50NTD (a little less than 2 USD) and had the following URL on the back:

The website opens with a quote of Picasso.

I found these gems:




Che Guevara:

John Lennon:
