BERLIN -- An annotated edition of “Mein Kampf” Adolf Hitler’s notorious manifesto has become a non-fiction best-seller in Germany.
柏林 — 元首臭名昭著的宣言：“我的奋斗”注释版在德国成为非小说类畅销书。
News agency dpa reported Tuesday that 85000 copies of the book have been sold since it was first published a year ago.
The 1948-page book is titled “Hitler Mein Kampf: A Critical Edition.”
It is published by the Munich-based Institute for Contemporary History which spent years adding comments to Hitler’s original text in an effort to highlight his propaganda and mistakes.
Before it expired at the end of 2015 Bavaria’s state finance ministry had used its copyright on the book to prevent the publication of new editions in Germany.
Despite its incendiary and anti-Semitic content the book wasn’t banned in Germany and could be found online in secondhand bookshops and in libraries.
