He’s Back! Germany Is Publishing Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf For First Time Since WWII

Keenly aware of the controversy surrounding "Mein Kampf", the Munich institute has stressed that the aim is to deconstruct propaganda and undermine any symbolic power the book still has.

For the first time since Hitler’s death, Germany is publishing the Nazi leader’s political treatise “Mein Kampf”, unleashing a highly charged row over whether the text is an inflammatory racist diatribe or a useful educational tool

“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: There have only been two world wars in human history and both of them started by the Germans. If history is any indicator, they will have a hand in starting the third one as well, and in the not too distant future.

BERLIN – The 70-year copyright on the text, written by Hitler between 1924-1926 and banned by the Allies at the end of World War Two, expires at the end of the year, opening the way for a critical edition with explanatory sections and some 3,500 annotations.

In January the 2,000 page, two-volume work will go on sale after about three years of labor by scholars at Munich’s Institute for Contemporary History.

Hitler wrote most of the first, highly autobiographical, volume while incarcerated in Landsberg prison after his failed Munich coup attempt in 1923. After his release, he wrote much of the second volume at his mountain retreat near Berchtesgaden.

Mein Kampf: The Story of Adolf Hitler

In the book, a mix of personal experience and political ideology, he outlined his strategy. A bestseller after he became chancellor in 1933, it had by 1945 sold 12 million copies and been translated into 18 languages.

The publication is a big step for Germany, which is still struggling with the legacy of the Nazi era and the Holocaust.

Polls show deeply divided public opinion. A YouGov survey last month said 51 percent of Germans oppose a continuation of the ban. The state of Bavaria has until now repeatedly used the copyright transferred to it by the Allies to prevent a reprint.

Hitler biographer Peter Longerich told Reuters Germans have reached a stage where taboos are being broken.

“We are probably entering a phase in which you can do more with Hitler and texts about him than you did 10 or 20 years ago. In the age of mass media, taboos are constantly broken and texts cannot be locked away,” he told Reuters.

Other watersheds include the 2004 film “Downfall” which explored the last days of Hitler’s life to this year’s hit film “Look Who’s Back”, an adaptation of a satirical novel about the reappearance of Hitler in modern times and becoming a celebrity.


Keenly aware of the controversy surrounding “Mein Kampf”, the Munich institute has stressed that the aim is to deconstruct propaganda and undermine any symbolic power the book still has.

“The aim … is to present ‘Mein Kampf’ as a salient source document for contemporary history, to describe the context of the genesis of Hitler’s world view,” it said.

To prevent any commercial exploitation of the sensitive text, the Institute is self-publishing. The first print run is expected to be up to about 4,000 copies. The Central Council of Jews in Germany has reservations, arguing the text, described by some community leaders as an “anti-Semitic diatribe”, should remain banned.

“After the expiry of the copyright, there is a very big risk that this sorry effort of a work will be more widely available,” Council President Josef Schuster said in a statement.

Yet Schuster acknowledged that understanding it is important in explaining Nazism and the Holocaust. “So there is nothing to object to if an academic edition with commentary is available for research and teaching,” he added.

German authorities have made clear anyone reprinting an unedited version will be subject to incitement laws.

But Germany’s teachers association wants it used in schools.

“A professional treatment of excerpts in lessons can help immunize against political extremism,” association head Josef Kraus told Handelsblatt. source

    Read the TORAH. The Jews invented and brag about committing genocide, killing even the animals. Then they “guilt trip” Christians and milk us for money. Jews worship a WAR GOD.

    • Well, you are right about one thing:

      “The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.” Exodus 15:3 (KJV)

    • Stan

      You need to truly understand Genesis 6 before you make such a ridiculous statement!

    Having been in the Mideast, I’ll take a Jew over an Arab EVERYTIME.

      been there, done that…..but then you have Sarah Silverman’s photos and those Chassidim in Mea Shearim whose antipathy towards Christians has them rivaling the Muzzies.

      That makes at least two of us! It’s the conservative Jew’s who are speaking out the most against the corrupt one’s – yes, I do understand that they’re somewhat restricted in telling the whole truth But not for reasons most think! 1 case in point (no I’m not picking on Roth) but one of his (Sid) shows some years back he brought up the Jewish populace in Scotland, for good reason(s) he left it there – another case, Budapest was once considered Judapest – what we have here is the Pharisee’s of Jesus day influencing the Tribes – most Jews see nothing wrong (again, for good reasons) w/the Geo Soro’s & the Redshields of this day – why? because the bring $$ to the mother country – the Lord wired them for Zeal, once they had Zeal for Him – the Lord put scales (blinders) over their eye’s & now we’re witnessing those blinders coming off – Don’t mock the Jews in general, we’re no better, look how fast we fell asleep and dropped the ball! The conservative Jews of today knows somethings not right deep down in their spirit (again, not mocking them) and they can’t quit put their finger on it! Totally different story w/Messianic Jews, they have a greater understanding than most Christians who came out of the heathen world – These Christian Rabbi’s are a wealth of great knowledge, yes, very awesome, totally full circle!

  • “A professional treatment of excerpts in lessons can help
    immunise against political extremism,” …..really ? Didn’t
    seem to work in 1933 ! Maybe the German universities and
    lecturers read the book all wrong then ? Educated people,
    from doctors to engineers must of read the book wrong. Or
    even married couples, because everyone that got married in
    Germany then got a copy of the book on their wedding day.

    The books release is just in time for the hoards of Islamic
    refugees that have settled in to Germany, wonder if the lessons
    from Mein Kampf will convince them about the ill’s of “extremism”
    because the Koran most certainly has not ! Within a generation
    those Islamic refugees will be in German universities, what do you
    think their spin on “Mein Kampf” will be ?…Cheering ! Mein Kampf
    may turn out to be a Middle East best seller !

    Satan will use any body in his quest to exterminate the Jews in
    order that Hosea 5:15 does not happen ! So the King does not
    come to save his people the “Jews” and rule on earth during the
    time of Jacobs trouble !

    Hosea 5:15 (KJV)
    15 I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their
    offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.

    To whoever reads this:

    We were born and live in a Luciferian society. The only escape is the Lord Jesus Christ. God made a way. He made a way to be born-again into HIS Kingdom, an Everlasting Kingdom. Trust Christ today. He is the only God who gave His own life for man. He is the only God who rose up from the grave and truly lives. He wants to be Lord of your life. Just talk to God like you would any loving Father. Tell Him (from your very heart) you know you have sinned in your life and ask Him to forgive you. Accept God’s love gift, His only Son Who took all your sins upon Himself on a cruel cross. Ask Jesus to come into your heart and save you. Be born-again!

    Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

    John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

    Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

    10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

    11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

    12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

    13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    Interesting that they release mein Kamp while all the Muslim refugees are coming in since this is one of the Muslim brotherhoods favorite books, so much so they retitled it “my jihad”

    “Hidden History uniquely exposes those responsible for the First World War. It reveals how accounts of the war’s origins have been deliberately falsified to conceal the guilt of the secret cabal of very rich and powerful men in London RESPONSIBLE for one of the most heinous crimes perpetrated on humanity. FOR TEN YEARS THEY PLOTTED THE DESTRUCTION OF GERMANY as the first stage of their plan to take control of the world.
    Our understanding of theses events has been firmly trapped in a web of falsehood and duplicity carefully constructed by the victors at Versailles in 1919 and maintained by compliant historians ever since. The official version is fatally flawed, warped by the volume of evidence that was destroyed or concealed from public view.”
    From the cover of… Hidden History The Secret Origins of the First World War.
    by Englishmen Gerry Docherty & Jim Macgregor 2013 “Dedicated to the victims of an unspeakable evil.”
    “Neither Kaiser Wilhelm nor Adolph Hitler wanted war. (period!) Both WWI and WWII were thrust upon Germany by the “Allied Powers” … When Germany rose from the ashes of WWI to again become a great power, they finished the job with WWII. The DELIBERATE DESTRUCTION OF Germany during the Second world war can only be compared to the Roman destruction of Carthage (an Israelite Colony), and it was done for the same reason–to destroy a commercial rival. The “Official” history World Wars I&II, the story we learned in school, IS A MYTH.
    From the cover of …The Myth of German villany by Benton L. Bradberry 2012
    It took Germany 90 years to pay off all the theft demanded of her by the “victors” of WWI.
    It is the same people, who still demand more German treasure, which seems will NEVER end, for 70 years now all based on a Jewish Fable, to which the Scripture commands us (Titus 1:14) “give no heed to Jewish fables and fairy tales of men that TURN FROM THE TRUTH.
    You would do well to learn some TRUTH, rather than slander Germany–the representative nation of TRUE Judah

  • The UNHOLY koran ( qu’ran ) and their STRUGGLE ( Jihad, islam ) is the same as STRUGGLE ( Mein Kampf, Nazi Germany ) both these books are TWIN IDEOLOGIES OF HATE FOR JEWS AND CHRISTIANS!!

    Please PRAY for our Judeo-Christian Nation United States of America and Israel-Yisrael Everyday!! “PRAY WITHOUT CEASING.” ( 1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV )!!

    Merry CHRISTmas to all my Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus-Yeshua!!

    Love Always and Shalom Everyone,


  • Read the Talmud, the satanic Bible of the sabbatean Jews. It advocates the enslavement and genocide of gentiles and Christians,and is a guideline for worldwide Zionist control and implementation of the beast system. Tell me who and what is evil.

    Hitler would be turning over in his grave, if he had one,over how Merkel gave Germany away to the Muslims.The same that Obamas doing to America.we need patriotic nationalism in this county. Hitler was right about some things he said. Multiculturalism can be the end of a country.

    • Adolf Hitler is right now burning alive in the endless torment of the fires of Hell.

  • Gavin

    Germany did not start ww1, so actually Germany onlynstarted one of the two world wars.
