Hitler's Mein Kampf to be published in Germany for first time since WW2

Hitler’s notorious Mein Kampf is set to return to the shelves of Germany in a move which some German Jews support as the right time to do so.

Though there is no law against publishing the controversial and anti-Semitic diary - My Struggle - in Germany, the copyright holders have until now refused permission.

But now Stephan J Kramer, of Germany's Central Council of Jews, agrees the time is right to publish a “properly annotated edition of Mein Kampf - with expert analysis and context provided by historians” which would “unmask Hitler for what he was, a fanatic”, according to the BBC.

The book, given to couples on their wedding as a gift from the Nazi state in the 1930s, has not appeared in Germany since the end of World War Two.
