Hitler’s “Mein Kamph” Republished

rtr21uhm

An academic edition of Mein Kampf is turning out to be a hit in Germany.

Adolf Hitler’s notorious manifesto is legally back on German bookshelves for the first time since the end of World War II, after the copyright to the book expired. The book is termed as one of the most dangerous text ever.
And it’s being published for the first time since the dictators death in 1945. However it won’t look like it did during The Third Reich. The new copies will be heavily annotated.

The teachers in Germany are endorsing the publishing. The literal translation of ‘Mein Kamph’ is “my stuggle” and it outlines Hitler’s hate for the Jews and his plans for the world domination. The teachers want students to put the text into context.
One of them says:
I find it’s right to now publish an edition with scientific comments because this way something shadowy, a myth can be destroyed.” he also adds ” my experience as a citizen and a teacher is that something which is forbidden creates a lot of curiosity.
There is no single book surrounded by so many myths and received with so much disgust and fear. What’s your take on this? What do you feel? Feel free to convey your views.
