Stupid censorship in Germany

You can read the whole thing on the net anyway
Annotated extracts of Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf" will be republished in Germany next week for the first time since the Nazi dictator's fall in 1945, the British publisher of the text says.

Peter McGee says "a brochure of 12 to 15 pages" will be published on January 26 "in which extracts from Mein Kampf will be printed on one side and commentary from a well-known historian on the other".

"Everyone knows (the book) and sees it as a sort of diabolical Nazi Bible," he said. "But people haven't read it and therefore haven't seen that it is the poor-quality and confused work of a totally twisted mind," said McGee.

Mein Kampf (My Struggle) has been banned in Germany since the end of World War II, and the southern state of Bavaria holds the rights until 70 years after the Nazi dictator's death in 1945.



I actually regard Mein Kampf as an important educational resource that should be available to everyone. To understand the Nazi disaster, you need to understand the mind of Hitler and he sets out his thinking at great length in Mein Kampf.

Though I understand why the Green/Left would not want you to read it. You will find there, for instance, an echo of the constant Greenie panic about running out of resources. Hitler invaded Russia because he thought Germany was running out of resources and therefore needed to grab Russian resources.

  1. The Left could be reluctant to republish the book because in the 1st edition's acknowledgments Adolph Hitler thanked Karl Mark for his major contribution to Mein Kampf's economic policies and proposals.
