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.

  • I love the idea that this book is considered SOOOOOOO dangerous yet books like the bible and quran are printed en masse.

    • @GiygasFetus That's because in the Bible, god only managed to kill about 12 million people. World War 2 beat his high score with 70 million or so.

    • @hellgremlin I don't know how you came up with that number. God is responsible for everything. By your math he's killed at least 84 million people. What a sick fuck.

  • Is this a satire?

    You won't find ANY building in Berlin with bullet holes, seriously are your parents siblings?

    And it's a British publisher trying to print the first five chapters of this book. It was bestseller in Turkey until recently and promoted by Virgin in Qatar.

    Don't tell this crap, it's probably not the Germans but the many many muslims in Berlin who like this book ..

  • I remember seeing a copy in my grandparents attic, along with a book from Goebbel, some NSDAP pins, 1940s magazines and an old radio. Like a time capsule. Never read it though.

    • @MB-UK Ah, so ignorance is bliss you mean? You'll never get far in wisdom with that mindset because reality will get you one day, if not in this life, after with judgement.

    • @MB-UK If you refuse to read their own words, how can you be so ultra naïve to just blindly accept someone else's opinions about them on face value? Do some research from the direct source. Read them, then you might start to grasp what they really think and why, instead of hiding being the skirts of others and their manipulative rhetoric. Be a man and do your own thinking!

  • A bad read, but it lets you get into Mr. Adolf's mind, beats me how the German people who read it did not know his intentions, it was the best selling book of its time too.

  • One only has to look at who was behind communism and its 140 million victims and you can see why Mr Hitler was no fan of a certain group:

    • @wakeupnow

      You just wrote that the fire bombings and murders happened during the 1930s and 40s, yet Mein Kampf was written in the 20s...

      Something doesn't add up in your theory.

    • @Valerie2007 How so? Jews took power in Russia in 1917, and also tried before in the 1905 Peasants' Revolution. Jewish Marxism was spreading over Europe from Russia, and Jewish terrorists and Marxist radicals were very active in Germany, which lead to them being hated, as well as their corrupt actions in the banks, media, theatres, striking unions (fronts for Marxist radicals), and control of the newspapers and magazines and general corrupting and debasing of society.

    • @wakeupnow So if it's so "carefully hidden" how come you know of it then? Guess not. Of course Jews aren't innocent and there are even movies depicting it and books and documents. But yet, all Jews get demonized due to some corrupt groups. Not only that but I'd like to see where you're getting your "Jews attacking all" info from. And you're talking as if this justified Hitler's psychotic actions. Honestly, you're the only smart one in the world for knowing this, huh? Please d More..

    • @EthanJuskas You said: "So if it's so 'carefully hidden' how come you know of it then?"

      I care to research and read what I please, whereas most people are just entranced in their everyday life and pay little attention to researching any historical events or even trying to get to know anything other than what they are fed by the media, a very Jewish media indeed.

      You then said: "all Jews get demonized due to some corrupt groups."

      Hardly, most people won't say a peep to Jews More..
