Reprints of Adolf Hitler’s autobiography Mein Kampf will be hitting bookstores across Germany once more — the first time since the Nazi leader’s death.
A ban on reprinting the Nazi manifesto in the country has been in place since the end of World War II. The state of Bavaria has held the German copyright ever since but it expires in December, reports the Washington Post.
The new edition, which is being produced and published by the taxpayer-funded Institute of Contemporary History, will be a heavily annotated 2,000-page volume that features mostly criticism and analysis.
The institute says Mein Kampf (My Struggle) is an important historical and educational tool.

Though republication of Mein Kampf has been banned in Germany, the book is widely available online and in many other countries including the U.S. and Canada.

I think I read somewhere that the text had been expurgated, I presume that means all the anti Semitism has gone, cannot say I'm all that bothered about reading it, in either version, from reports by reviewers, its rather turgid at best.
