German Jewish leader backs publication of scholarly edition of 'Mein Kampf'
Stephan Kramer, the secretary general of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, has urged that a
critically annotated edition be issued online of Hitler's diatribe, which has been banned in Germany since 1945.
Kramer told Deutschlandfunk Radio that the Central Council would work on such an annotation, even for an Internet publication, of the volume Hitler wrote in prison in 1924. The book became a staple of the Nazi movement and was a required wedding gift. Today it is available on the Internet, but virtually only from far-right and Islamic extremist groups outside Germany.

Don't let the old frightened ones stop the publication of a very important book and its needed annotation. Don't let the enemies have it to themselves.The price of freedom is vigelince. You must read such stuff with a critical eye or it will be believed. Too many people hadn't read the book the first time around to catch the importance of it. It wasn't taken seriously. Just a buffoon with a silly mustache they thought. How wrong they were. Don't make that mistake today.
