Bavaria, southern Germany, will publish a new version of the book “Mein Kampf”, written by Adolf Hitler, hoping to diminish the popularity of neo-Nazi.
The new edition will be accompanied by annotations and explanations of some historians to be designed to emphasize that such a doctrine is counterproductive to humanity.
Bavaria owns the copyright of the Nazi leader since 1945, when he committed suicide, but will expire in 2015, Der Spiegel headline.
Authorities fear that neo-Nazi movements will spread “Mein Kampf” youth, and these initiatives will be impossible to control.
“In three years, we will not have authority over their copyright and this will expose the young, which can be wrong influence of this book,” said Markus Soder, a senior official in Munich.
The new version will be studied in schools and will be published in the form of an audiobook, which will contain “comments and arguments against this kind of thinking led to a global catastrophe” Soder added.
“Mein Kampf” (My struggle) has been published in Germany by the end of World War II, but was not otherwise prohibited.
