Adolf Hitler, during his rise to power in Germany wrote his book, Mein Kampf, on how he accomplished his goals. Going into great detail about how he despised the Jewish people of Germany, Hitler described how he was going to rid the world of them and create an Aerian race. All around the world in few stores and many online outlets there has been the selling of the communist leader’s book. As recently as January 2016 there has been one new place where it has hit bookshelves and online vendors; Germany.

Germany was the birth place of Hitler’s reign of humanity’s destruction. So, why would the country reprint this specific piece of controversial literature? Surprisingly enough, the main country of Germany did not own the rights to the book. It was Bavaria; a German state. Prior to its annotated reprint, Bavaria made it illegal for Mein Kampf to be sold without annotations and commentary out of due respect to those whose families were greatly affected by the Holocaust within the country.

According to an NBC News source the reprint is, “…an attempt to destroy Hitler’s ideology completely.”. But, is this decision necessarily a good thing for a country that still has generations that unfortunately had to endure the inhumane torture of Hitler? Only 70 years ago did the communist leader pass away and the Nazi group slowly declined.  As a country that has people whom still support some Hitler’s ideas just as America has people whom support the idea of racism and the Southern Confederacy, would this strike trouble in the wrong areas? There has been controversy about the book’s reprint from those residing in countries besides Germany. As the CBS Sunday Morning Show with Charles Osgood covered this newfound information, they interviewed German bookstore owners who verbally claimed they were okay with it because it is a part of their history and they cannot ignore it, their faces said otherwise; more displaying a look of worry and concern rather than neutrality.

Will there be more conflict than intended? Is there chance of a revival of Nazism? Hopefully not anytime soon.
