A state government in Germany is looking at legal measures to prevent a British publisher’s plans to reproduce excerpts from Adolf Hitler’s infamous memoir in Germany. “Mein Kampf” is not banned in Germany as commonly believed, but Bavaria has used its ownership of the copyright to prevent its publication so far.
The American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and their Descendants on Tuesday urged Bavaria to continue to try and prevent its publication in Germany, calling the idea “crass commercialism” and “a moral offense to the memory of all Nazi victims.”
