Ninety Second Anniversary of Hitler’s Mein Kampf

by | Aug 13, 2017 | News

Despite the vast difference between people’s views worldwide, the book Mein Kampf (My Struggle) by Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler, is still one of the most popularly translated books around the world since the publication of its first edition 92 years ago.

Hitler wrote the first part of the book when he was in the Landsberg prison in 1923, following a failed coup by the Nazi party against the German Government in Munich. He published the first part in 1925, and then wrote the second part after his early release when he was living in his Berghof retreat in the mountains of Bavaria near Berchtesgaden. He published the complete book in 1926.

Hitler published the two volumes in one book in 1933 after he became the chancellor of Germany. The book was the bestseller as 12 million copies were sold in 1945. It was translated into 18 languages and later was released in unofficial editions in many countries and was widely circulated.

In January 2016, for the first time in 70 years, Germany decided to republish the book officially after the book’s copyright had expired. The book is now available in schools and universities, and 85,000 copies have been sold in less than a year.
