The Netherlands’ Surprise New Best Seller: Hitler's ‘Mein Kampf’Breaking News
tags: Hitler, Netherlands, Mein Kampf
After being banned in the Netherlands for over 70 years, a new Dutch translation of “Mein Kampf” hit bookstores across the country in August.
It didn’t take long for Hitler’s political manifesto, written in 1924, to become a best seller and stir controversy in the country. Even though booksellers are reluctant to even display it, the translation, “Mijn Strijd,” has been on the country’s best-seller list since its release – peaking in third place in mid-September.
With an introduction to each chapter by historian Dr. Willem Melching, the new Dutch edition of “Mein Kampf” is more than just a translation of Hitler’s work.
