Germans are again struggling with "Mein Kampf"


The copyright to Hitler's "Mein Kampf", which has been held by the German state of Bavaria who refused to publish the book, expired on January 1.

Demand for a new 2,000-page annotated version which hit bookstores on January 8 massively exceeded supply, with 15,000 advance orders for an initial print run of just 4,000 copies.

During Hitler's lifetime, "Mein Kampf", containing his thoughts on everything from eugenics and race theory to theatre, movies, and marriage, including a full ten pages to the problem of syphilis, sold more than 12 million copies.

I haven't bought my copy yet and so I don't know if it's true that one morning he sat down to order his breakfast and said, "I don't like juice". If so, he's been quoted out of context ever since.
