Hitler’s Mein Kampf Will Return to German Bookstores

By Dianna Dilworth 

Adolf Hitler’s manifesto Mein Kampf has been banned from Germany for 70 years, but the book will make its return to German bookstores by early 2016.

The Washington Post has the scoop:

The prohibition on reissue for years was upheld by the state of Bavaria, which owns the German copyright and legally blocked attempts to duplicate it. But those rights expire in December, and the first new print run here since Hitler’s death is due out early next year.

The new edition is stirring debate and bringing out the critics who fear that the book will not just be used as a reference text for criticism, but will taken seriously. A German edition of the text is available in the United States from Amazon.
