“Anything that depicts anything regarding Hitler is a very sensitive issue, especially with growing anti-Semitism throughout Canada , the U.S. and around the world,” said Harvey Levine, B’nai Brith’s regional director in Quebec.

“When we receive complaints from the community, we have to respond. This is a sensitive issue with the Jewish population and with families of those involved in the Holocaust.”

After talking to Levine, the store manager on the West Island contacted the owner, who decided the game would no longer be sold at its three Montreal locations.

In the Habs' Room: Carey Price hides from the media after loss to Penguins

  In the Habs' Room: Carey Price hides from the media after loss to Penguins The Canadiens let the Pittsburgh Penguins hang around too long and they paid the Price as the visitors posted a 3-2 overtime win Saturday night at the Bell Centre. This game ended with a controversy on the winning goal by Brandon Tanev, who scored off a rebound after Carey Price stopped Teddy Blueger. It appeared Blueger might have interfered with Price when he went to the net. Price lost his balance and was on his knees when Tanev scored at 1:49. The play was reviewed in Toronto and the replay showed that Blueger made some contract with Price’s pads but he was trying to pull up and the contact wasn’t deemed to be interference.

“(Levine) expressed his and the community’s shock concerning the fact that the game exists and that we would carry it,” said the store manager, who didn’t want his name published. “I’m glad that he spoke to us directly.”

The stores began selling the board game over the holidays after receiving requests from customers, the manager said.

“Between our three stores, many copies were sold,” he said.

The board game has been distributed worldwide through Amazon and there have been complaints from other Jewish groups in the U.S. and Australia, Levine said.

B’nai Brith officials are assessing the situation before deciding whether to issue a formal statement, he added.

Sales of board games have increased over the past five years. Games such as Settlers of Catan, which emphasize strategy and co-operation, are increasingly popular.
