In Germany, attitudes toward ‘Mein Kampf’ slowly changing
By Michael Birnbaum, Published: January 27
Berlin — The city that was the center of Adolf Hitler’s empire is
littered with reminders of the Nazi past, from the bullet holes that
pit the fronts of many buildings to the hulking Luftwaffe headquarters
that now house the Finance Ministry.
What it doesn’t have, nor has it since 1945, are copies of
Hitler’s autobiography and political manifesto, “Mein Kampf,” in its
bookstores. The latest attempt to publish excerpts fizzled this week
after the Bavarian government challenged it in court, although an
expurgated copy appeared at newspaper kiosks around the country.
