Prominent Berlin Jew calls for republication of Mein Kampf
'Text opens the eyes of many people to Hitler's intentions,' head of German capital's Jewish community tells DPA, adding she doesn't object to Hitler wax model in new Madame Tussaud's museum

The head of Berlin's Jewish community said Sunday that she was in favor of publishing an annotated version of Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf.

 

"The text opens the eyes of many people to Hitler's intentions and provides evidence for what should have been known at the time," Lala Suesskind told DPA news agency.

 

Suesskind said during the interview that while most people can understand the text of Hitler's book, some would benefit from a commentary.

 

Mein Kampf, or My Struggle, was written by Hitler while he was in prison in the early 1920s and was first published in 1925. In the 782-page book Hitler used the main thesis of "The Jewish peril", which speaks of an alleged Jewish conspiracy to gain world leadership, and also predicted the stages of Germany's political emergence on the world scene.

 

Suesskind also told DPA she was not against including Hitler among the wax models of the new Madame Tussaud's wax museum in central Berlin, which is due to open next month.

 

"Better to have him in the wax cabinet and out of the minds of many people," she was quoted by DPA as saying.
