According to a news article, which you can read in full here, Hitler’s book entitled Mein Kampf will go on sale today.  The book has been banned in Germany for years, but now anyone can buy it and read it.  What a revolting development this is!!!

I purchased a copy of Mein Kampf many years ago, and it is hidden in one of my closets. God forbid that someone should come into my house and see the book. The worst sin that anyone can commit is to say anything good about Hitler.

I have written several blog posts about the book, which you can read at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/mein-kampf/

Here is what Wikipedia has to say about Hitler’s book:

Mein Kampf (pronounced[maɪ̯n kampf], “My Struggle”) is an autobiographical manifesto by the National Socialist leader Adolf Hitler, in which he outlines his political ideology and future plans for Germany. Volume 1 of Mein Kampf was published in 1925 and Volume 2 in 1926.[1] The book was edited by Hitler’s deputy Rudolf Hess.[2][3]

Hitler began dictating the book to Hess while imprisoned for what he considered to be “political crimes” following his failed Putsch in Munich in November 1923. Although Hitler received many visitors initially, he soon devoted himself entirely to the book. As he continued, Hitler realized that it would have to be a two-volume work, with the first volume scheduled for release in early 1925. The governor of Landsberg noted at the time that “he [Hitler] hopes the book will run into many editions, thus enabling him to fulfill his financial obligations and to defray the expenses incurred at the time of his trial.”[4][5]
