Hitler's Mein Kampf to be republished in Germany

Adolf Hitler’s infamous memoir Mein Kampf is to be reprinted in Germany for the first time in 70 years.

According to newspaper reports the new addition is to include commentaries on the text criticising Hitler’s arguments.

Though Mein Kamf is not officially banned in Germany, no one has been allowed to print an edition under the current copyright which belongs to the Bavarian Finance Ministry.

The decision to reprint Hitler’s work comes as that copyright is set to expire in 2015. Concerns that once anyone is free to publish the book, neo-Nazis will churn out editions favourable to the Nazi leader prompted the idea of a new academic version.
