What really disappoints me is that its re-publication is subject to its containing notes, critical of the wannabe fuehrer's philosophy.
I have bought two copies of mein Kampf (it means 'my struggle'), one, in English, in London in 1972, another, in German, in Stuttgart in 1974 (and it wasn't difficult to find) and have lost both, probably not given back by people I lent them to. Their loss has caused me no grief because the book is an incoherent, self-justifying rant and very hard to get through.
The attitude of the German authorities is too patronising: you are far less likely to be a supporter of Fascism if you have read this drivel than if you haven't. Leave out the worthy commentary and let people read it for themselves.
