The Washington Post claims that ‘Overwhelming’ interest makes Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’ popular again.
“Reprinting Hitler’s autobiography “Mein Kampf” (My Struggle) was long prohibited in Germany — a country that considered the book too dangerous to be read.
Now, it’s a German bestseller.” according to this article
However, it’s important to note per this article that “the book that is currently topping the German bestseller lists is far different from Hitler’s original version. The new 2,000-page edition is heavily annotated with remarks by experts to help put Hitler’s comments into context.The publishers think that this solution exposes Hitler’s destructive and violent ideology.”
As someone interested in WWII history, the only reason I would read the book is to see first hand this maniac Hitler’s writing, expecting to be shaking my head all along throughout my critical review of this book. I suspect most Germans are reading this book with the same mindset.
