“Should Mein Kampf Be Un-Banned?” (by Ursula Sautter, Time):
It’s long-winded and badly written, a tirade against all things non-German that would have disappeared if its author had never managed to turn many of his vile words into action. Adolf Hitler’s notorious Mein Kampf (My Struggle), a manifesto posing as autobiography, has long been banned from German bookshelves “out of a responsibility and respect for the victims of the Holocaust.” But 83 years after it was first published, some Germans argue it should be made available again in order to drain it of whatever power it might still have.
Of course, the fact that it’s banned doesn’t mean that you can’t get it from Amazon. (I presume they’ll ship to Germany.)
