I have heard that the anti-Semetic book Protocols of the Elders of Zion has been a long-time bestseller in Japan. While anti-Semistism certainly has shown itself historically in places where Jews seem to be rather rare, this seems like a “here-say” that could use some backing up. I could see how the publication could get to Japan, what with the WWII alliance with the Nazis (and I have seen substantiated claims of agreements that would have Japan send whatever Jews they had to the camps in Europe), but I want to see evidence or some research into this topic.
Any other pointers to related research would be appreciated, as well.
Thanks for your help.
