Mein Kampf copyright due to expire in 2015; German govt nervous
By Paul Hockenos

Berlin

Adolf Hitler's rambling magnum opus, Mein Kampf ("My Struggle") is considered a blueprint of the radical nationalist, pungently anti-Semitic vision that he would put into practice when the Nazis captured power in Germany, in 1933. It reflects his thinking so accurately that one German historian describes the book as "direct access to Hitler's brain."

In fact, the book's contents were considered potent and infectious enough that the postwar administration in Allied-occupied Germany banned its publication, a prohibition that German authorities maintained, and which is to remain in place until the end of 2015, when the copyright expires. What happens then is the object of intense discussion and soul-searching in Germany, where, 67 years after the war's end, freedom of speech is still curtailed when it promotes Nazi ideology.

Hitler wrote most of Mein Kampf in 1924, during his incarceration for his role in the 1923 Beer Hall Putsch in Munich, when he and his followers tried to seize power in southern Germany. One of his motives for writing the book was to use the royalties to pay off his legal fees. It was originally thought that Hitler dictated it to his prison mate and early follower, Rudolf Hess. But recent research concludes that Hitler typed it himself in his cell on a portable typewriter, and then later dictated further parts to a publisher.

That book was the most dry ,boring tome of crap I've ever had to struggle to get through. Would rather read War and Peace twice backwards than read it again. Doubt it will be a big hit anywhere it's currently banned.

They are nervous because the author shows himself to be a very bright man, and a good writer.

I suggest everyone read the book, before they swallow the smear that Hitler shows himself a racist in this work.

Have you read it?

Let's hear back from you when you do so.

i actually just picked up myself a copy today! been meaning to for a while. Only thing im concerned about is that its a translation, and the introduction puts Hitler in a negative light right off the bat... I'm just hoping the translation isnt TOO butchered.

Why should they be. Hitler was an arch corporatist and capitalist bootlicker. Had he taken the world, we would be on consumerist capitalism on steroids, complete with grazing sheep down ubermall land. The German elites are fully aware of this.

Then why do they tell so many lies about him?



What happened at Treblinka, Sobibor and Belzec? Did 1,5 million Jews die there? Where they gassed? Is it plausible?



How was Auschwitz supposed to work according to the official story? Does it fit the evidence?



Examining Auschwitz. The only existing gas chamber, was build after the war?
