Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” has become a continued bestseller in Germany. Hitler’s book was banned in the country following World War II for 70 years. This new version is heavily annotated with Jewish propaganda but its continued popularity is encouraging.
The first reprint of Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” in Germany since World War II has proved a surprise bestseller, heading for its sixth print run, its publisher said Tuesday.
The Institute of Contemporary History of Munich (IfZ) said around 85,000 copies of the new annotated version of the Nazi leader’s anti-Semitic manifesto had flown off the shelves since its release last January.
However, the respected institute said that far from promoting far-right ideology, the publication had enriched a debate on the renewed rise of “authoritarian political views” in contemporary Western society.
It had initially planned to print only 4,000 copies but boosted production immediately based on intense demand. The sixth print run will hit bookstores in late January.
The two-volume work had figured on the non-fiction bestseller list in weekly magazine Der Spiegel over much of the last year, and even topped the list for two weeks in April.
The fact that Germans have been openly betrayed by their government is likely leading more to reevaluate the lies they’ve been told about Hitler and their ancestors. Anybody with an open mind will eventually come to the conclusion that Hitler was not the insane madman that he’s been depicted as. He was actually responsible for building what at the time the most advanced civilization of his era. If you look at archival footage from that time, it is easy to see how Germany in the 1930s looks much like America in the 1950s.
