Plans To Publish Mein Kampf In German Hit Legal Snag

01/18/2012

Plans by a British publisher to make segments of Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” available in the German language may run into legal trouble.

Publisher Peter McGee said he plans to publish three annotated excerpts of the text, which remains under copyright protection in Germany until 2015, 70 years after Hitler’s death, according to the Associated Press. The Bavarian Finance Ministry, which holds the copyright, told AP on Tuesday that plans to print excerpts in Germany before then may violate the law.
