The Spero Forum website reports today (April 26, 2012) that Adolf Hitler's autobiography "Mein Kampf" ("My Struggle") is poised to be published again in Germany, where Nazism took root and once flourished -- some 67 years after it was last published in that country.
The copyright of the hate-filled, anti-Semitic, and racist book has been kept out of public view since the end of World War II by law, but will make a comeback in 2015 when the copyright expires. At that time, an annotated version will be made available to schools across Germany.
The German state of Bavaria -- which became the heir to all of Hitler's works, property, and money following his 1945 suicide in Berlin -- claims that children should have copies available that include expert analysis and comments from historians which refute Nazi ideology.
Although it is legal to possess a copy of "Mein Kampf," any printing or prominent displays of the book are prohibited out of concern that it may still inspire racism and Nazism.
