Hitler’s manifesto to be republished in Germany by government
The German state that owns the rights to Adolf Hitler’s manifesto Mein Kampf said Tuesday it would republish an annotated edition of the book 70 years after the Nazi dictator’s suicide
State Finance Minister Markus Soeder told German news agency DPA the decision was taken after talks with advocates and opponents of the move, and said it was aimed at “demystifying” the pages drenched in hatred and paranoid fantasy.
“We want to make clear what nonsense is in there, however with catastrophic consequences,” Soeder said of the book on which much of the Nazis’ genocidal ideology was based. (Photo: David Silverman/Getty Images)
