Mein Kampf becomes Amazon Bestseller


Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf has becoming an exceedingly successful international e-book bestseller – a sign that anti-Semitism is on the rise worldwide.Originally published in 1925, the 387-page anti-Semitic manifesto on the “Jewish peril” and the Nazi ideology has become “a bona fide online sensation,” writes Fox News, topping Amazon’s Propaganda & Political Psychology section as of Thursday for just 99 cents. Chris Faraone of Vocativ.com wrote Wednesday that for about a year now, Hitler’s book has been on the list of best-sellers on iTunes, where and that currently two different digital versions of the book rank 12th and 15th on the Politics & Current Events chart. On Amazon, reported Faraone, “there are more than 100 versions of Mein Kampf for sale in every conceivable print and audio format, from antique hardbacks to brand-new paperbacks. Of those 100 iterations, just six are e-books—yet all six of them rank among the 10 best-selling versions overall.
And those are just the ones people are paying for.” In January 2013, a 99 cent Kindle version began to do well among World War II books and Historical Biographies & Memoirs. Its publisher, a California company called Elite Minds Inc.,told Vocativ, “Sales are great,” but noted that he faces “a moral dilemma in promotion” in that he fears advocating “something that could misused.” Vocativ speculated that Mein Kampf’s popularity on the Internet is connected to the anonymous nature of e-purchases, and to curiosity. “I think I waited 45 years to read Hitler’s words,” writes one reviewer. Another sums it up thusly: “Curiosity killed me to get this book.” Germany inherited the copyright ownership to the book in 1945 and will maintain national exclusivity until 2015. Lawmakers there have pledged to release an annotated version of Mein Kampf to coincide with the expiration of their rights. Since showing up in Asia 15 years ago, Mein Kampf has sold in excess of 100,000 copies in India. In 2005, the debut of the first-ever Turkish translation sold 100,000 copies in the first two months. Deutsche Welle spoke to Gerhard Weinberg, 86, a professor emeritus of history at the University of North Carolina, who published Hitler’s second book in 1961. He thinks there is a combination of factors that contribute to the sudden popularity of Hitler’s book on the Internet. More

    I THINK THAT PEOPLE SHOULD READ EVERYTHING AND BE AWARE OF THEIR ENVIRONMENT AND SURROUNDINGS. ESPECIALLY, HISTORY WHERE IS HAS SO MUCH IMPACT ON OUR LIVES. THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT, THE YOUNGER GENERATIONS SHOULD ALSO READ, SO THEY DO NOT REPEAT THE SAME TRAGIC AND FATAL ERRORS. IF EVERYONE JUST STAYS IN THEIR OWN COMMUNITIES THEY WILL NEVER GET A WORLD VIEW; PEOPLE SHOULD READ EVERYTHING AND WITH THEIR OWN FREE WILL MAKE UP THEIR OWN MINDS. FOR INSTANCE, I AM NOT A BLACK WOMAN, BUT AT TIMES I WILL GLANCE AT A BLACK PUBLICATION, TO SEE WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE OTHER NEIGHBORHOODS, AND I AM NOT A LESBIAN, BUT WILL TAKE A GLANCE AT A GAY PUBLICATION TO SEE WHAT IS GOING ON IN THEIR NECK OF THE WOODS. YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN ONE COMMUNITY WILL AFFECT ANTOHER, AND USUALLY THEY OVERLAP WITH AN IMPACT WHICH IS NOT EXPECTED. ONCE AGAINST READ EVERYTHING FOR YOU NEVER KNOW, WHEN A “STRANGER” MAY KNOCK AT YOUR DOOR.
