The new edition consists of two volumes with a total volume of 2 thousand pages. It is worth noting that this is not Mein Kampf in its pure form, since the 27 chapters of Mein Kampf themselves occupy only 780 pages, and the rest of the test consists of the comments of scientists exposing the crimes of National Socialism. However, whoever wants it, he can read the basics of the ideology of Nazism without critical notes from scholars. And the German Teachers Association proposed to include Hitler in the school curriculum of Mein Kampf.On the Amazon book Mein Kampf: Eine kritische Edition - "My struggle: against criticism." sold for 59Euro.
Let me remind you that Mein Kampf was written by Hitler in the 1920s and is an autobiographical work where the ideas of national socialism are formulated and the anti-Semitic and racist foundations of the Nazi ideology are stated. In Russia, the book has been included in the federal list of extremist materials since 2010, its publication and distribution is prohibited.
The book begins to "capture" Europe - preparing the French edition, abbreviated and revised. In addition, it is planned to publish a book in the Netherlands. Moreover, the demand for a book is such that almost every month there are new editions that are instantly sold out.
